Performance Management

Ensuring Application and Infrastructure Health 24/7

In most network and datacenter infrastructure environments, the most obvious indicator of impending failure is the marked degradation of resource performance over time. For example, CPU or memory utilization in a server trends higher as application loads increase over time, and may eventually cause the system to slow down. Similarly, increasing network traffic and application usage can drive interface utilization rates upwards to unsustainable levels.

The Value of Performance Management

The job of a performance management system is to monitor and record the changes of workload, utilization, and user experience over time and notify administrators when these breach specified threshold levels. With historical insight into how performance has trended over time, network and system administrators can take preemptive steps to reallocate workloads, augment capacity and maintain utilization rates within acceptable levels.
