Monitoring tools for IBM Maximo

Sentinel

Sentinel is the only performance monitoring solution designed specifically for Maximo. Different from other monitoring solutions, Sentinel not only monitors Maximo availability, correctness and performance, it also monitors every aspect of the underlying system. Sentinel immediately identifies the cause of a problem the moment it occurs, ensuring fast resolution and minimal impact on user communities and the wider business.

Key features:
•             Immediate diagnosis of any detected problems
•             Performance and system information correlated in real time
•             Monitoring of underlying system and infrastructure
•             Real time alerting facility
•             Configurable to raise alerts exactly to customizable specifications
•             Detailed historical data from user and system perspectives
•             Customizable reporting, graphs and tables.

PERFMON

In Maximo 7.1.1.6 a Maximo Performance Monitor (PERFMON) tool was introduced. It can be used to aid in troubleshooting performance issues. Maximo Performance Monitor should be run in a test or development environment if the performance issue(s) can be reproduced. If you need to run PERFMON in a production environment, a new maximo.ear should be built with PERFMON enabled and deployed to a new Maximo Application Server. PERFMON is resource intensive and should not be enabled in production UI/CRON/MEA/etc. JVMs.
If the production JVM(s) have performance issues and you have enabled PERFMON in the JVM(s), disable PERFMON.
