A lot of IBM IT shops only respond to system issues after they cause problems for the end user, not before. Even small problems left unattended can lead to catastrophe.

Well-run data centers monitor their servers and networks for early signs of impending issues, but doing this requires the proper tools. Monitoring and automation tools let you establish baseline normal performance profiles, and then automatically generate alerts when abnormal conditions are detected.

Monitor Performance Proactively
Join long-time IBM IT professionals, Mel Beckman and Chuck Losinski, and learn the tools and implementation techniques for monitoring key metrics on your servers and network devices, plus tips to make the process easier and more reliable.

  • Set up monitoring instrumentation
  • Define the most important metrics to monitor
  • Detect exceptions requiring attention
  • Use Robot/NETWORK for a consolidated view even from your mobile device

Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be fully equipped to instrument your own network. Register today and save your weekend!
