SL Corporation^®, a leading provider of application and service-level system
monitoring solutions, today announced that their flagship product, RTView^®
Enterprise Monitor, enables users to view infrastructure metrics for PAAS
services and resources in the context of application performance metrics via a
new adapter for VMware^® vSphere^® data. RTView also archives these metrics,
maintaining a long-term history for trend analysis and alerting.

“VMware has become ‘every-ware,’ making it much easier for an
application-centric monitoring product like RTView Enterprise Monitor to
provide a complete picture of application health state,” said Tom Lubinski,
CEO of SL Corporation. “Performance information associated with infrastructure
is now commoditized, streamlining the integration of virtual machine metrics
with higher-level component data, and revolutionizing the model with which
complex business applications are deployed and managed.”

The new RTView Enterprise Monitor adapter enables users to collect CPU,
memory, disk and network data for hosts and virtual machines from VMware
vCenter and ESXi servers in real-time. RTView 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

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 Monitor is also of
particular use in complex environments where the monitoring of both
cloud-based and on-premise components is required.
