Application and Infrastructure Monitoring Tool
We are in the process of identifying a comprehensive application and infrastructure monitoring tool to provide monitoring for our central application and IT services. I figured one of the best starting points is to survey this list for input and recommendations on practical experience with such tools.
We are looking for a tool to discover and monitor our web applications, middleware, identity management, security, database, and other critical systems. We have a mix of home-grown and off the shelf applications that we offer to the campus, including web-based enterprise systems, websites, mainframe applications, and hosted services, running on virtualized and non-virtualized clusters.
The key features we are looking for are:
- High-level dashboards and reporting, with ability to drill down
- Various levels of alerts and contact mechanisms
- Metrics and analytics
- Capacity forecasting, trending, and predictive elements
Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.
