Show Service Levels with Dashboards & Reports
Documenting service levels for IT and business stakeholders can be time-consuming, especially when different teams have their own system and presentation preferences.
vFabric Hyperic dashboards and reports let you meet your reporting obligations without significant distraction from your primary system administration tasks. You can quickly visualize and share critical application performance metrics with the rest of your team, for analysis of service levels, resource utilization, best practices compliance, and other key indicators.
See availability and alert overviews for single servers or infrastructure groups—for example, all app servers or just those running a particular application. Convert any of Hyperic’s thousands of tracked metrics into a key performance indicator for monitoring on the dashboard. Watch servers that have recently been added and identified via Hyperic Autodiscovery. See a list of recent alerts and system administration activities. Track problematic resources and compare any given metric across a range of servers. Reposition portlets anywhere you like on the dashboard.
User or role-based access lets you easily tailor Hyperic dashboards to the needs of each individual on your team. Because Hyperic dashboards are built in HTML and AJAX, they’re viewable in a browser without the need for plug-ins or client software.
See historical performance baselines that establish the “normal” values for particular metrics. Should other considerations play into what’s acceptable or typical, you can explicitly define baseline values yourself. Metric charts display baselines, allowing you to visually compare current performance to baseline values.
Extrapolate future metric values from historical data to predict upcoming resource limitations. Build scenarios targeting specific timeframes and resources, to discover how greatly you can scale your infrastructure before encountering performance problems.
Complete and Flexible Reporting
Gain visibility into performance and service-level activity across your application stack and network. Standard reports show availability, alerts, inventory, resource utilization, and resources for which metrics haven’t been established. You can also create your own report templates to satisfy enterprise-specific needs. Reports can be driven by user-input parameters and generated in several formats: PDF, HTML, Excel, and CSV.
