Here’s a quick look at what release 9.2 has to offer:
– Virtualization Monitoring: We’re announcing out-of-the-box support for monitoring VMware ESX/ESXi host servers and their guest virtual machine instances. We provide deep dive application component monitoring, which helps you manage both physical and virtual components of a heterogeneous IT environment. You can find out which virtual machines are consuming your server resources and take action accordingly. With the help of end-user monitoring, you can also manage user experience before and after virtualization.
btw, this feature was previewed to a select audience at Best of Interop 2010 and was a finalist in the Virtualization category.
– PostgreSQL Monitoring to monitor the health and performance of your PostgreSQL database servers and ensure your PostgreSQL database servers are optimized for peak performance.
– Memcached monitoring to quickly detect and resolve problems with your caching systems.
– New REST APIs to create, edit, and delete downtime schedulers in Applications Manager. Plus, additional APIs to get monitor data, add monitors to Applications Manager, etc.
– Web application group which is a new type of monitor group. This will be useful for grouping your web infrastructure into logical components such as servers, databases, web servers, etc and better manage the relationship between components.
Other enhancements include an improved Real Browser Monitor dashboard, enhancements to Java Runtime Monitor, option to send events as SNMP traps to external SNMP listeners, etc. Read more.
That’s it for now. Stay tuned to this space for detailed updates on each of these features.
