(The Hosting News) – Galileo Performance Explorer™—a cloud-basedperformance monitoring tool developed by the ATS Group for server and storage system analysis—has added two new agents for users of IBM® GPFS™ server systems and IBM® Storwize V7000 Unified storage systems. These new infrastructure charting tools provide in-depth, customizable insights into vital cluster statistics for quick identification of performance bottlenecks. Enhanced configuration and capacity table layouts are also viewable directly within the Galileo portal.
“The new GPFS agent charts server performance data across 47 metrics in 74 new charts for visualization of the entire GPFS cluster, including hundreds or thousands of nodes,” says Tim Conley, co-founder of Galileo Performance Explorer. “The Galileo GPFS agent also aids in capacity planning to size and allocate, or reallocate CPU, memory, network and SAN resources for optimal performance, based on varying workloads.” Configuration inconsistency can be identified through timely one-views of cluster configuration information such as GPFS pools and FS block size.
Galileo’s new Storwize V7000 Unified agent provides customized dashboard snapshots of the complete V7000 Unified system configuration, capacity and performance at-a-glance. Tim Conley says, “Over 80 storage performance metrics provide essential cluster statistics such as I/O throughput, metadata operations, client network throughput, quotas, shares as well as disk, pool and file system usage data.” Production workloads can also be assessed with time-based capacity planning features available based on production workloads.
All Galileo capabilities are accessible for evaluation via a free 30-Day Trial program.
