Release Overview

SmartCloud Application Performance Management Entry Edition Virtual Machine (VM) images provide a quick and easy solution for customers with moderately sized environments to install and configure the application monitoring and management infrastructure. The solution is composed of two VM images: One comprising the IBM Tivoli Monitoring (ITM) management server components, and the other containing the Tivoli Data Warehouse, Tivoli Common Reporting (Cognos) and APM user interface components. Upon deployment and start of the two VM images into the VMware vSphere environment, all of the required infrastructure components will be configured and running, automatically. Users can then employ the built-in "Launchpad" to deploy operating system and application monitoring agents to discovered resources.


The following themes guide the planning of this release:

Simplify SAPM installation and launch: Pre-installed VM images to set up the SAPM server environment quickly

Simplify SAPM monitoring agents deployment and administration: Provide a Launch Pad to serve as the starting point for performing operational and administrative tasks to simplify deployment of APM monitoring agents

New Application Monitoring Dashboard: Integrate APM UI to provide out of box, fast-response and highly customizable dashboards for managing performance and availability of business applications

Globalization: Globalize and translate the product into the following languages: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese
