Inspur SSM application monitoring system is a service monitoring and management platform which conduct unified monitoring on basic IT resources and service support systems. SSM conducts uninterrupted monitoring on a series of IT resources, including various types of mainframe devices, network devices, security devices, databases, middleware, mail systems, web services, infrastructure services and virtualized platforms.
Inspur SSM application monitoring system is divided into four layers:
Data collection layer
Data of hardware and software resources is collected from server through SNMP, Syslog, CLI (Telnet, SSH, WMI), JMX, CORBA, Inspur SSM UniAgent monitoring agent and other remote monitoring methods.
Data processing layer
Collating, merging and digging up data on status and performance, providing reliable data for senior management and presentation; filtering, compressing, merging and analyzing the failure data to generate alarms and event logging, and conducting early warning management and display.
Service module layer
Providing service application system of data centerswith comprehensive functions including configuration monitoring, resource management, operation management, service topology, alarm management and report statistical analysis; providing the feature presentation layer with accurate, reliable and real data.
Feature presentation layer
Presenting full features of service application, software and hardware resources of the data center in form of WEB, providing flexible, personalized and targeted reports in light of management and service applications; support large screen display.
Schematic Diagram of Product Deployment
Powerful monitoring on data center service applications
Server and relevant service applications of data centers are central to Inspur SSM application monitoring system, which realizes powerful application monitoring and presentation through in-depth monitoring on correlation among events.The system assists policy-makers and administrators, and O & M staff of the data center in mastering overall situation and details.Managers are also able to make strategies based on different layers of data center's service applications.
Adopting centralized deployment and management, Inspur SSM application monitoring system can be easily deployed without changing the existing network and system application architecture. It provides two monitoring modes – server Agent monitoring and remote agentless monitoring – which can be combined freely to meet different conditions and environments created by different service applications of the data center.
Intelligent early warning and effective alarm
Inspur SSM application monitoring system allows servers and service application systems to actively give warning in advance by setting relevant application thresholds; it is able to identify all kinds of original events from separate sources by intelligent analysis on data and events. With built-in intelligent engine, it effectively filters, repeatedly compresses, aligns, merges, and creates dependence and association to form valid alarms. It supports a variety of forms of alarms including text message, e-mail and voice notification, and different alert modes are selected based on different alarm sources. It also supports external commands, UniAgent execute scripts, NetSend, Snmp settings, Trap forwarding and other alarm processing operations, which will be automatically executed after an alarm occurs according to predefined procedures. In this way, we are able take the first step to recover the service systems.
Flexible configuration, powerful extension
Inspur SSM application monitoring system supports template-based monitoring configuration, alarm configuration and report configuration, and enables staff of data center quickly customize reports. It also supports diversified-parameter setting and allows operation and maintenance staff to customize the configuration in order to meet complicated demands.
In compliance with various types of standardized protocols and specifications, Inspur SSM application monitoring system has a stable plug-in management system and provides standard plug-in interfaces, by which monitoring on specific application services can be completed without secondary development. Meanwhile, open expansion interfaces allow additional monitoring functions or integration with other systems; it supports third-party alarm access, integrates alarm and fault information from other systems through Syslog and SNMPTrap.
