Tools Selection

Referring to the requirements described in the previous article, the following products were deployed to facilitate the different views.

  • MicroMuse Netcool provides the NOC view that shows all alerts in all components. These components have their own views:

    • MicroMuse ISM provides the SLA view that reports the status of the messaging application against a predefined .

    • MicroMuse Netcool and ISM provides the applications infrastructure SLA view that reports on the status of the software components that support the application. Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Network Time Protocol (NTP) and domain name service (DNS) are included in this.

  • Sun™ Management Center (SunMC) software is the core of the system administration view that reports on the status and supports the administration of all Sun computer and storage systems.

  • TeamQuest is responsible for the performance view that monitors the status of the system and networks as far as they relate to being able to handle the processing load.

  • Foundry's Ironview with MicroMuse's Netcool provide the network view that reports on network alerts and supports the administration of the network components.

Using the same organization as described in "Implementation Requirements, Management at All Layers" of the previous article, TABLE 1 summarizes the managed aspects per tool by layer.
