Monitor your IBM PowerHA (HACMP) servers

We understand that in an environment of ever increasing business demands, critical applications need to be available 24/7, with a fault tolerant system. However, fault tolerant systems are not necessarily cost effective.

There is a business need for a cost effective application which provides this functionality. In today's interconnected IT environments, the underlying infrastructure is very complex and involves a wide range of servers, databases, and operating systems. Monitoring and managing this complex environment at an affordable cost is business critical and NiCE solutions serve this function.

Keep your PowerHA Servers healthy

System, application, and database administrators face three significant challenges in their roles which are:

  • Managing a more and more complex IT environment;
  • Working efficiently with limited resources;
  • Diagnosing and addressing problems in real-time.

System Center, NiCE PowerHA MP, and database administration

Working with System Center Operations Manager, otherwise referred to as SCOM, certainly makes it easier for you as an IT professional to monitor the health and performance of your computer systems, but there is still a missing puzzle piece to complete the single interface view of SCOM, which facilitates the monitoring of databases, middleware and applications.

The NiCE PowerHA Management Pack (NiCE PowerHA MP) for SCOM is one of the pieces that you need as you work with System Center. We have developed a management pack that extends the view of SCOM to give you the holistic picture of servers & systems, and thus complete the enterprise scope for the administrator.

Our PowerHA MP helps you to increase the IBM PowerHA (HACMP) server availability and performance and to lower the overall cost of maintaining your PowerHA (HACMP) environment. It enables you to perform service-oriented management as well as incident management in your PowerHA environment, while supporting your business critical processes.

SCOM PowerHA MP

How does the NiCE PowerHA MP work?

All NiCE management packs are designed to integrate seamlessly with SCOM and the PowerHA MP is no different. The PowerHA MP has an easy to deploy architecture that does not require additional servers, proxies, or appliances to be installed.

The NiCE PowerHA MP is a sophisticated and intelligent Enterprise Ready management pack that was designed to fully integrate into Microsoft SCOM. Our PowerHA MP continuously monitors the PowerHA (HACMP) infrastructure, identifying server problems before they affect applications and end users, through the use of predefined event conditions and threshold monitors.

The management pack collects the detailed data that you need from your PowerHA environment allowing you to monitor your systems without affecting or impacting their overall performance.

Why the SCOM PowerHA MP from NiCE is better

Identify problems fast - The NiCE PowerHA MP was designed to increase the productivity of both the Operations Manager administrator and operator, providing the ability to identify problems quickly and take corrective action to avoid costly downtime. Built-in features like SCOM “Diagnostic Tasks” help the administrator and the operator to troubleshoot more efficiently.

Receive performance alerts – Avoid interruptions in service by receiving alerts immediately when something is amiss with the PowerHA (HACMP) server performance.

Seamless SCOM integration – The NiCE PowerHA MP provides sophisticated integration into SCOM. System administrators therefore, do not need to install or configure additional server, proxies or connectors to pinpoint root cause of problems. It is thus, easier to solve issues easily, quickly and efficiently. No additional software needs to be installed on the Management server or proxy.

Leverage the native capabilities of SCOM – Our innovative architecture allows system administrators to centrally configure exception-based monitoring in distributed PowerHA environments. Following Microsoft’s Best Practice design guides, all run-time information is stored in the Operations Manager Database and Datawarehouse. There is neither run-time data on the SCOM server nor PowerHA system.

What can you do with our SCOM PowerHA MP?

The NiCE PowerHA MP allows you to perform a multitude of functions that are critical in your role as system, application or database administrator.
