Monitoring and Event Management

Get a bird’s eye view of your IT infrastructure

  • Define and perform telemetry from the end user perspective to solve business problems, rather than blindly reacting to state changes in infrastructure components.
  • Pinpoint and prioritize your most critical business issues—regardless of source—significantly streamlining subsequent event and impact management efforts
    • Focus on events that occur when an infrastructure metric falls outside of normal parameters, and prioritize by event severity
    • Troubleshoot the root cause of degraded application performance by diving into underlying infrastructure metrics, events, and logs
    • Cuts cost by eliminating the need to manage thousands of traditional, static thresholds for event generation.
    • Detect, analyze, and act on events impacting the business by Reducing event volume by decreasing event noise. Decrease false alarms by up to 90%
    • Automatically generate incident tickets, notifying the service desk before users are impacted. Resolve 40% more incidents automatically
  • Simplify operations with a manager-of-managers by integrating events from specialty monitors or 3rd party systems

Behavioral Learning

Reduce event noise through dynamic baselining 
TrueSight uses patented self-learning, self-configuring analytics that automatically discover and learn the behavioral and performance trends for monitored infrastructure and application components.

  • IT operations analytics – Use behavioral learning and log analytics to reduce MTTR. Lower MTTR (mean time to repair) by up to 75%.
  • Continuously learn normal and abnormal behavior of infrastructure and application services
  • See events only when there is significant abnormal behavior and reliably predict potential problems. Warn IT when a metric is trending out-of-band, up to 3 hours before a baseline is breached, with predictive analytics.

Probable Cause Analysis

Uncover underlying evidence>

  • Get visibility into problems as they develop, allowing you to diagnose intermittent performance issues on-demand
    • TrueSight Infrastructure uses machine learning to continuously correlate millions of data points collected from every monitored application component and automatically identifies a small number of potential causes.
  • Automatically collect detailed diagnostic data across data sources to accelerate problem diagnosis
    • Applying intelligent filtering and leveraging service relationships further reduces the list and ranks them according to their likely contribution to the problem being diagnosed.
