TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Trinagy has developed the
VANTAGEwatch family of agent products to give service providers and
enterprises the intelligent insight necessary to meet service level
commitments through all system and application resources on their networks.
The VANTAGEwatch suite -- TRENDwatch(TM), SYSwatch(TM) APPwatch(TM) and
RMONwatch(TM) -- delivers truly integrated data to give a complete picture of
the network, top to bottom, in real time and in any user-chosen report format.
The entirely standards-based architecture means users do not have to view
separate reports and draw correlations from the data themselves. Instead,
they can measure any variable they choose within any context instantly,
leaving nothing on the network to chance. They avoid possible downtime on the
network affecting their ability to meet service-level commitments that often
come with financial penalties for non-compliance. VANTAGEwatch is also the
first complete agent suite to support Linux, in addition to Windows and UNIX.
Linux is fast becoming the operating system of choice for service providers
and large enterprises for use on systems and servers within their
How VANTAGEwatch Works
Trinagy's VANTAGEwatch family gathers reliable metrics of performance and
response time of systems and applications. With VANTAGEwatch, users can
isolate and identify the source of potential performance issues anywhere in
the network, answering that all-important question -- is it the network,
system or application? As a result, users can identify and respond to
performance problems or even proactively circumvent issues before downtime
results in financial loss or even worse, the loss of customers. When coupled
with TREND's robust analytic and reporting capabilities, VANTAGEwatch enables
service providers and enterprises to document and deliver the guaranteed level
of service specified in the service level agreements they have with their
The fully programmable VANTAGEwatch solution suite includes:
-- SYSwatch, which is RFC 1514 compliant and can look at the servers
themselves to monitor system performance. Users can identify
overloaded systems, disk/file space shortages and poorly performing
servers before they impact users.
-- APPwatch, which tracks actual user response time of applications and
monitors availability of services. This ensures high availability and
peak performance of mission-critical applications.
-- RMONwatch, which has the functionality of APPwatch and SYSwatch as well
as all 20 groups of RMON I and II that measure network and application
traffic in real time.
-- TRENDwatch, which will be installed on all TREND(R) servers at no
additional charge and will monitor server resources and processes of
TREND, Trinagy's performance management software.
The products bear the Trinagy stamp of full modularity, scalability and
openness to extract data from any source.
Notes Steve Grinder, Trinagy's director of product management, "Our
VANTAGEwatch products will make a difference to service providers' and
enterprises' bottom lines. Service providers can accurately predict and
respond to issues affecting their service level agreements with customers,
before they lose money for not fulfilling their end of the bargain. Global IT
managers can sleep at night knowing they can get a unified, instant picture of
end-to-end performance across the enterprise, eliminating potential problems
before they result in downtime and angry end-users."
The Technology Behind Trinagy's TREND
TREND's network data repository is a powerful, open, relational database
that provides the links for integration into other OSS/BSS systems such as
network inventory, event correlation, billing, and provisioning systems.
Trinagy's TREND solution suite automates the collection and analysis of
performance data, couples it with its industry-leading predictive tools to
warn users of impending network problems, and delivers comprehensive reports
with full interactive access from Web browsers. Built on a distributed open
architecture, TREND scales to meet the demanding requirements of even the
largest networks. TREND supports custom report design, tailored threshold
definitions, and specialized service level calculations required with today's
IP-based, e-business infrastructures. With TREND, service providers and
enterprises can proactively manage service level agreements and optimize
existing resources. Further, they can gain a competitive edge through
proactive network planning and differentiated, revenue generating services.
