Get More Uptime with Your Mission Critical Linux Servers

Shrinking operational budgets and server consolidations are driving IT personnel to consolidate their Web application servers, business applications and databases to Linux. System managers need performance and availability monitoring tools to ensure both the stability and high performance of their mission-critical applications.

up.time allows system managers to centralize performance/availability management for Linux and other servers. up.time is a powerful, easy-to-use and very affordable toolkit that simplifies this management task for enterprise server administrators. up.time increases availability by reducing unplanned downtime and by setting thresholds for memory, CPU usage, disk capacity, file systems, logs, processes and swap file utilization. Users can then establish recovery actions for threshold attainment and anticipate problems before the Linux OS is impacted.

Key Benefits:

  • Ensures smooth operation and performance through the use of recovery actions in the event a threshold is attained

  • Reduces down time

  • Simplifies management of your Linux servers by providing a centralized console "RadarScan" view

  • Help you anticipate the scalability of Linux through in-depth, historical and graphical representation of Linux OS activity

  • Ensures that service-level agreements are met by monitoring all system resources

  • Easy-to-install (1 hour), powerful and very easy-to-use

  • A practical and low cost alternative for Linux managers who wish to avoid expensive and cumbersome enterprise "framework" management systems

Key Features:

  • Advanced application and system services monitoring with pre-configured and user-definable application level probes

  • Powerful Service-Level monitoring for complex application environments via GUI-based Metaservice definition tool

  • In-depth server performance statistics with graphical historical data collection

  • Sophisticated and flexible 3-D charting and reporting tools

  • Powerful multi-level alerting and problem escalation system supporting email, pager, Windows pop-ups and SNMP traps

  • Active agent features include the ability to take action and execute system recovery scripts when problems occur

  • Advanced multi-tier and multi-user access and administration system

Bank of Montreal uses up.time v2.0

"Since implementing up.time v2.0, the availability of our applications and services has improved dramatically." says Bruce Johnson, Bank of Montreal, LMG Manager - Dec 14, 2002.

The Bank of Montreal relies extensively on up.time v2.0 for monitoring the performance and availability of mission-critical Linux server resources and applications. They chose up.time for its ability to give the bank rapid access to detailed and summarized workload characterization data. This data allows the bank to predict and plan for short and long-term system resource requirements in our environment.

up.time v2.0 running on any Red Hat Linux or Turbolinux monitoring server is an easy-to-use, easy-to-install, low-cost, yet powerful Web browser-based server performance and availability monitoring toolkit, which enables rapid:
