Greater Scalability

Along with the enhanced analytics, Integrien rearchitected Alive for greater scalability in large, complex data centers.  It can now provide real-time analysis of millions of metrics from thousands of devices.  

The Web-based Alive 6 also includes a new role-based, customizable dashboard that allows each operator to see only the data he needs to help solve problems.  It is intended to span database administrators, network engineers and the vice president of IT operations.

Alive uses dynamic thresholding to reduce the number of false-positive alerts.  Although other analytic tools such as BMC's ProactiveNet also provide dynamic thresholding, Alive is more sophisticated, said Adrian Tudor, vice president of engineering at Integrien.

"Beyond the dynamic threshold, we can correlate events and take a fingerprint of that particular lineup of events that would lead to a slowdown," he said. "We record in our database the sequence of events and probability of those events occurring, and we become a learning technology, so that any time that event reoccurs we compare it to fingerprints in our library and we can be predictive."

Alive 6 is available now.
