• Monitoring and graphing of values
  • Alerting on error conditions
  • Remote configuration of managed resources
  • Remote operation execution
Both management suites use a distributed server and agent architecture. The Management Server records information in a database and multiple copies of the server and database can be maintained for high availability. The server can be extended with plug-ins to display custom data.
The server is accessed in one of three ways:
  • web browsers
  • web services
  • Java clients
  • plug-in configuration (defines plug-in interface)
  • resource discovery (finds compatible resources)
  • resource management (monitors and configures resources)
The agents connect with the server and respond to requests and provide the requested information.
