Resonate Inc. next week will announce it is extending its monitoring and management of IBMs WebSphere to include the components the Web application server interacts with most.
The Sunnyvale, Calif., service-level management company will extend its Resonate Commander Solutions suite to monitor and manage IBMs MQSeries middleware, HTTP Server, AIX operating system and IBMs DB2 database management system.
Resonate is adding new modules to its application performance management suite that will provide service-level monitoring and component management for elements of a WebSphere "environment." The move is aimed at large financial services firms that use WebSphere, according to Resonate officials.
Resonate claims that it is unique among Web applications performance management providers in that its tools correlate end-user experience data with application monitoring and measurement. Resonate Commander Solutions are also unique in allowing end users to automate corrective actions when certain problems arise.
New Command Solutions Modules being added to the suite include Resonate Command Module for WebSphere MQ to monitor and manage message queues, Resonate Command Module for HTTP Server to monitor total number of requests received, and Resonate Command Module for AIX to monitor the operating system. All are due by July.
A new Resonate Command Module for DB2 Universal Database to monitor database issues such as database connections, CPU performance and percentage of use is due in the third quarter.
The Resonate Command Module for WebSphere Application Server uses a proprietary management interface that Resonate helped IBM to develop for monitoring application objects such as servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans and Java Virtual Machines. Resonate officials said that IBM will add support for the emerging Java Management Interface, dubbed JMX, in a new release of WebSphere due this summer. Resonate will support the JMX interface.
