IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.2.3 delivers support for the IBM zEnterprise hybrid computing environment, including proactive monitoring and alerting capabilities, resource utilization, and expert advice. This support helps to reduce the cost of operating in this new hybrid computing environment and allows you to manage the IBM zEnterprise hybrid computing environment in the same way that you manage the rest of the enterprise.
IBM has fulfilled the statement of direction included in Software Announcement dated July 12, 2011, with the introduction of the end-to-end monitoring solution for IBM zEnterprise. The Tivoli zEnterprise monitoring agent provides visibility into the IBM zEnterprise hybrid infrastructure, including hardware resources, hypervisors, virtual servers, and workload resource groups that span heterogeneous platforms as defined by the zEnterprize Unified Resource Manager.
This new capability provides proactive monitoring of zEnterprise workload resource groups to help ensure they are meeting the service level objectives that you have defined for your enterprise.
The zEnterprise monitoring agent also provides automated discovery of this virtualized environment, enabling continuous monitoring of dynamically changing infrastructure resources, without operator intervention. As with all Tivoli Monitoring capabilities, this agent provides the ability to drill down into resource details and other monitors to help diagnose performance problems and provide expert advice to improve mean time to resolution.
