Performance Management monitors

JP1/Performance Management monitors and collects information about the different parts of your system, helping you run it smoothly. JP1 can be used in both on-premises and cloud environments to efficiently monitor different kinds of nodes without the use of specialized monitoring tools. With JP1's diverse functions, you can evaluate your system's relative performance, by comparing, along a timeline, your system's operating status against accumulated operational data. This makes it easier to identify areas that are likely to become future bottlenecks and allows you to perform capacity planning without relying on instinct alone.

Key Features

A full system overview is available in a single window, making it easy for you to see how well your system is operating. The overview includes information such as the number of running servers and agents, the number of stopped servers and agents, and the ratio of the first to the latter. You can also view the number of alarms (warnings) generated.

Agentless monitoring
Agentless monitoring allows you to monitor servers without installing agents. This is an effective solution when you want to introduce JP1 products into an existing system and start monitoring them immediately.

<Agentless monitoring features>

  • The installation of agent software is not required
  • Allows you to monitor without interrupting the existing systems
  • Monitors servers without increasing the servers load
  • Agent-based monitoring​
    Agent-based monitoring involves installing agent software on the servers. This type of monitoring provides more detailed information about the operating status of the servers.

    <Agent-based monitoring features>

  • Agent software installation is required
  • Continuously monitors the servers even if the servers are not connected to the network​​
  • Enables greater control over how servers are monitored​

  • JP1 offers several useful templates, that notify administrators if critical or warning-level thresholds are reached. These templates help you monitor your assets immediately. You can customize them for better integration with your system.

    Use the icons in the Quick Guide window to easily perform actions such as configuring the monitoring settings and displaying reports. By assigning a keyword (for example, "CPU", "memory", or "TCP"), you can easily find and select the information you want to monitor.​​

    i. Assign a keyword (for example, "CPU", "memory", or "TCP") to easily search for the related information you want to monitor.

    Create and view reports in various formats, using bar graphs, broken line graphs, lists, tables, and more. You can also overlap them to create hybrid reports, which are useful especially during data analysis or determining the correlations and trends emerging from different sets of data.

    It is a constant challenge for the system to continue accumulating and managing operational data, as well as making effective use of this ever-increasing volume of data. JP1 can help by automatically aggregating your data by the minute, hour, day, week, month, or year. This aggregation of data allows you to assess how your system has changed over time, eliminating the reliance on guesswork during capacity planning. By specifying the amount of time for which the aggregated data is to be retained, you can strike a balance between continuous monitoring and the amount of disk space occupied by records.​​​​
