Current version for all other systems: openSM2 V9.2 (Open Systems)
Round-the-clock performance monitoring forms the basis for effective and economic operation of IT systems. With the openSM2 product line, Fujitsu offers a consistent solution for the enterprise-wide performance management of heterogeneous IT environments.
openSM2 provides comprehensive online monitoring with configurable alarm management, detailed bottleneck analyses as well as forecasts of future performance requirements. So it’s possible to optimize the performance of systems. The FUJITSU Software BS2000 openSM2 product line consists of the products FUJITSU Software BS2000 openSM2 (BS2000) and FUJITSU Software BS2000 openSM2 (Open Systems).
openSM2 (Open Systems) supports the server systems Microsoft® Windows, Linux®, Solaris™, VMware™ vSphere und Xen® und BS2000® as well as the ETERNUS DX and Symmetrix storage systems and all SNMP-capable systems.
Monitoring of SE servers: To monitor SE servers openSM2 has a web application, which is installed as an add-on to the SE Manager and is accessed via a link in the SE Manager. The systems in the SE server are automatically determined and included in the monitoring. To control the open systems the package openSM2 (Open Systems) is as add on for the SE server series available.
Performance data acquisition
The performance data of Windows systems are collected via the WMI interface. Data about the utilization of the server and the operating system and also the Microsoft applications Internet Information Services, Exchange and SQL Server are collected.
The performance data of Linux and Xen systems are collected over SSH. Data about the utilization of the server, the operating systems and the individual Xen guest systems are collected.
The performance data of VMware ESX Server systems are collected via the VI3 web service. Both data of the entire server and of the individual guest systems are collected.
The performance data of storage systems are collected via StorMan. Access rates, data transfer rates and IO response times for the volumes are collected.
The performance data of all systems which supports the SNMP internet standard protocol for the performance data MIB-2 groups ip, tcp and upd are collected over SNMP.
The performance data of Windows, Linux, Xen, VMware ESX Server, storage and SNMP standard supporting systems can be collected remotely from another system (e.g. a PC), without any installation on the monitored systems ( monitoring without agents).
The performance data of Solaris systems are collected via different system interfaces (kstat, /proc, statvfs). The measured values for the measurement variables of all sar options are collected. Beyond that, process- and file system-specific measured values and network data can also be captured in addition.
On BS2000, performance data acquisition is managed by the SM2 monitor, which can capture performance data for more than 500 measurement variables. The scope of performance data acquisition can be controlled, since more detailed performance data is required for the analysis of performance problems than for long-term observation and planning of system capacity.
The performance data is provided for online monitoring and, if desired, can also be saved to a monitoring file for later analyses.
Online monitoring with INSPECTOR
The simultaneous online monitoring of several systems enables the rapid recognizing of acute problem situations and their causes. The monitoring data of the current system status and the chronological development of the measured values are displayed by INSPECTOR in the form of reports in graphic or tabular form at the Windows PC.
Offline analysis of monitoring files with ANALYZER
With the analysis of monitoring files bottleneck and trend analyses as well as long-term capacity planning can be performed. With ANALYZER, you can generate expressive charts from your performance data with minimal effort. This makes the measured values easy to interpret, so performance bottlenecks can be quickly identified and future performance requirements forecast.
User-specific monitoring (BS2000)
Task- and program-specific performance data (instruction counter and SVC statistics) can be collected in user-own statistics files for analysis of user tasks and programs. The analysis is performed by the product SM2-PA.
Under download, a free test version is available for 30 days for the system platforms Solaris, Linux, Windows, VMware ESX server, Xen and all systems whose support the SNMP standard.
