Quickly identify storage performance bottlenecks

Storage performance first aid

Identify whether performance problems are storage related

  • Apply intelligent, path-aware monitoring, reporting and analysis, from application to shared storage resources.
  • Identify and diagnose storage performance bottlenecks to help optimize application performance.
  • Use proactive monitoring, storage health checks, trending and integrated alerts for comprehensive performance management and troubleshooting.

Improve storage performance and increase utilization

Tuning Manager software maps, monitors and analyzes performance, from application to logical storage devices. Its end-to-end visibility identifies, isolates and diagnoses storage performance bottlenecks for applications such as:

  • Oracle
  • Microsoft® Exchange, SharePoint®, and SQL Server®
  • IBM® DB2®

Top Features and Benefits

  • Improves storage performance by correlating and analyzing storage systems, virtual-storage machines, SANs, servers, and applications.
  • Efficient performance management optimizes shared storage resources.
  • Reduces delays due to bottlenecks by monitoring a comprehensive set of storage performance metrics.
  • Alerts you when storage performance or capacity thresholds have been exceeded.
  • Lowers costs by helping to improve storage capacity and performance utilization, making it possible to postpone storage-infrastructure purchases.
