RTView® Enterprise Edition is an end-to-end monitoring platform that uses Solution Packages to gather and process performance metrics from a wide variety of different technologies, including VMware vCenter.
With the Solution Package for VMware vCenter, you are able to collect CPU, memory, disk and network data for hosts and virtual machines from VMware vCenter and ESXi servers in real-time. RTView® Enterprise Edition combines these metrics with application performance data obtained from application servers, enterprise message buses and other middleware components to create holistic, single-pane-of-glass views of the entire application environment. This concise visualization provides immediate insight into the level of criticality of a problem, and drill-down support to quickly determine cause and guide resolution.
Since vCenter provides built-in performance metrics, there is no longer a need to painfully install and manage monitoring agents on every machine that hosts application components. Instead, RTView simply connects to vCenter and can readily incorporate data from multiple data centers and thousands of virtual machines. On top of this, RTView provides an automated, data-driven application dependency model that intuitively visualizes the relationship among applications and their underlying infrastructure and middleware components in order to highlight the business impact and criticality of any problems or performance issues.
An integral part of the system, the included RTView Historian, can be configured to store vSphere metrics in an arbitrary SQL database for capacity planning and historic trend analysis. Trends can also be used to refine alert thresholds. RTView alerts can be integrated with alerts from third-party sources through RTView’s alert management system to help users quickly filter alerts and identify the source of true performance problems.
The lightweight, flexible nature of RTView® Enterprise Edition is also of particular use in complex environments where the monitoring of both cloud-based and on-premise components is required.
