MALVERN, PA, Oct. 9 — Galileo Performance Explorer, a cloud-based performance monitoring tool created by the ATS Group, will demonstrate its versatility for server and storage analysis at the IBM Power Conference from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2, 2012, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
New Galileo feature enhancements include Shared Ethernet Adapter (SEA) and Multiple Shared-Processor Pool (MSPP) support for AIX and disk service times for Linux. Additionally, Galileo has added AIX disk statistics for separating read/write service times, transfer sizes, and Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS).
Galileo provides deeper insight into server and storage performance than other tools – offering more analytical capabilities for proactive system management – so IT administrators can be more efficient in utilizing existing resources and more accurate at predicting and planning for future capacity needs.
Unlike reactive performance-monitoring tools designed to issue alarms in response to system overloads, Galileo helps to identify and prevent bottlenecks in the first place, with:
