Based on market demand for a ‘single view’ across the enterprise, the latest release of Metron’s Capture Packs for HMC and nmon allows an organization to gather and store data in athene®'s CMIS. Centralizing the data in a CMIS provides IT with the metrics necessary for effective Capacity Management, all in one place.
HMC and nmon metrics are then available to view and use alongside all other enterprise and business data.
The HMC Capture Pack retrieves hardware utilization data by LPARs and by shared processor pools.
Using this information charts are generated to show:
the CPU usage of LPAR stacks, with the top of the stack representing the total utilization of the physical machine an aggregated view of all partitions with a trend line projecting utilization in the future the configuration of memory by partition utilization of shared processor pools The nmon Capture Pack retrieves metrics related to CPU, LPAR, MEM, and disk.
