Track: Performance

, Technical Consultant, HP

HP PERFDAT is an OpenVMS performance solution which provides an unprecedented level of insight into multi-system p erformance. A complete suite of highly automated collection, filtering, alerting, charting and trend analysis capabilities provide the user with accurate and complete performance information for effective performance lifecycle management. The user interface was developed in close cooperation with customers in order to keep performance data analysis simple and intuitive and to enable the user to pinpoint performance problems and to identify their root cause without OpenVMS internals knowledge. In addition HP PERFDAT provides several extensions and tools so that non-OpenVMS systems like Brocade Switches, EVA storage arrays or RDB can be monitored out of the box. With the easy to use HP PERFDAT API any application performance data can be inserted into the HP PERFDAT distributed database. Doing so all the enhanced HP PERFDAT analysis features and functions can be applied to this application data as if this performance data was collected by HP PERFDAT. This session will provide an overview of the main features and basic concepts of HP PERFDAT with special focus on data analysis and reporting automation and performance alerting.
