CA Technologies Infrastructure Monitoring
Size your IT infrastructure correctly and increase performance. Automate the monitoring, analysis and diagnosis process for traffic that impacts on applications. Optimise time and resources assigned for management.

Integrated Solution

  • Based on the reliable, robust, highly scalable CA Technologies products.
  • Automatically monitors and shapes the infrastructure following a predictive performance assessment that enables continuous, correct adaptation to internal changes.
  • Proactively identifies degradations, infrastructure flaws and possible SLA violations. Issues predictive warnings to the targeted persons, thus substantially lowering non-operational time and average intervention time. Performs root cause analysis. Allows for management of warnings.
  • Consolidates the aspects of the IT infrastructure in one central console. Integrates data delivered by multiple monitoring systems. Enables quick, easy access to data.
  • Homogenises management procedures for hybrid media (physical, virtual, public or private cloud).
  • Supplies native support for multi-tenant use with information sharing within a safe environment.
  • Has a low overall ownership cost.

Architecture

  • Multi-level enterprise solution with secure multi-organisation access.
  • Scalable for medium-size and large infrastructures. Enables the same features acording to the bundles licensed.
  • Is built on CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM), CA Spectrum and CA Network Flow Analysis (CA NFA) products. The components can be implemented individually, as needed.

CA Technologies Application Performance Management

Assess the real level of the services offered and the impact of incidents on the users’ experience. Formulate response actions based on an impartial view on IT and business requirements. Optimise applications and the support infrastructure to support ensuring SLAs.

CA Application Performance Management

  • Can monitor Java and .Net applications up to code level, to detect changes and sources of performance issues.
  • Measures response time between the components involved in the architecture of an application.
  • Quick response to incidents that impact the performance of applications. Sorts the events, identifies the sources of problems and analyses their main causes; measures the impact and priority of performance incidents. Formulates proactive action to ensure a quality experience for the end user.
  • Correlates information on transactions to the support infrastructure and sorts the applications by infrastructure.
  • Enables testing, reporting and accurate warning on the performance of web-based applications.
  • Supplies real-time information on the services provided and the SLA
