The latest addition of 22 charts and 23 metrics expands Galileo’s infrastructure monitoring options to 242 charts and 293 metrics across AIX®, Linux®, and Windows® servers and SVC, V7000, and DS3/4/5K storage systems.

Galileo Performance Explorer™, a cloud-based performance monitoring tool for server and storage systems, created by the ATS Group, has introduced a series of enhancements that expand its scope of storage performance monitoring.

New reporting options increase by 28% the number of charts users can view to monitor their IBM® SVC and V7000 system performance. “The latest addition of 22 charts and 23 metrics expands Galileo’s infrastructure monitoring options to 242 charts and 293 metrics across AIX®, Linux®, and Windows® servers and SVC, V7000, and DS3/4/5K storage systems,” says Tim Conley, co-founder and principal partner for the ATS Group. “Additional charting agents for IBM XIV®, DS8K, SONAS and GPFS™ storage are scheduled for upcoming Galileo releases.”

New built-in displays also put hardware configuration and storage capacity data at a user’s fingertips without having to log into the storage controller/system interface. Configuration data includes hardware attributes, firmware/software revisions, disk configurations, and array layout and sizes. Storage capacity data includes total storage capacity, used capacity, available capacity, and over-allocation of storage (when using thin-provisioning).

A new graphic display management feature enables custom scaling of the Y-axis for all Galileo charts. Users are free to assign maximum Y-axis values and scale charts to eliminate skewed views that can occur as the result of an exceptional single data point or “edge case.”

Both the new SVC/V7000 charts and the enhanced end-user interfaces are available for user evaluation via a FREE 30-Day Trial program available from ATS.

Galileo Performance Explorer is a sponsor of the IBM Edge Conference that will held June 10-13 in Las Vegas. In addition to demonstrating the depth of Galileo’s storage performance monitoring, Tim Conley will present a session on “Exploiting Tier 0 and Storage Virtualization” to offer storage performance management insights to attendees. Tim was a former IBM Systems Architect and Engineer before co-founding ATS and Galileo.
