Tivoli solutions to manage Microsoft environments

Tivoli Software from IBM has announced four new products. They are Tivoli Management Solution for Exchange, Tivoli Distributed Monitoring for Active Directory, Tivoli Management Solution for Microsoft SQL, and Tivoli Distributed Monitoring version 3.7 for managing Windows based servers.

Tivoli Management solution for Exchange utilizes a new and advanced rules engine which helps minimize time consuming activities by detecting critical Exchange events and initiating automated corrective actions. Practice monitors are configured for vital statistics with an easy to use rules engine and reporting toolkit. Emphasis has been on areas like end-to-end connectivity, resource consumption, exchange services, performance counters, mail queues, and number and size of mailboxes.

Tivoli Manager for SQL Server provides proactive monitoring and problem resolution for any SQL Server environment. It works on small business servers or multi-processor clusters to perform e-business. According to the company, problems can be corrected on the spot using an event console, and central monitoring location can be informed using e-mail or pager messages. Automation and preset smart thresholds are provided out-of-the box with an integrated set of rules and an easily customizable rules engine. These correct problems before users can experience failures or slowdowns.

Tivoli Distributed Monitoring for Active Directory provides a leading active directory monitoring solution, which ensures that critical directory components are available, functional and healthy. It provides a set of pre-configured automated practices that proactively manage the directory by monitoring essential resources that detect and prevent potential problems. Active directory, the directory service for Windows 2000 Server, stores information about objects on the network and makes this information easy to access for administrators and users.

Tivoli Distributed Monitoring version 3.7 helps in managing large Windows implementations. Automated practices help provide time-to-value by identifying the root problems, checking for persistency, locally correlating problems on the server, and taking corrective action. With an automatic distribution and installation function, administrative time and effort can be reduced. It also includes a workbench that provides an integrated environment specifically designed for creating, debugging, and packaging either new automated practices or those pre-packaged and pre-configured with the product.
