SystemAnalyzer

Open iT SystemAnalyzer™ meters CPU, memory and I/O usage for all applications, users, and hosts, as well as application usage and inventory for workstations.

The SystemAnalyzer module provides a rich capability for monitoring a wide variety of system resources on a total enterprise level. Track system resource usage for each application and user, watch trends, discover undesirable usage patterns and determine systems that need tuning to improve system performance and IT service levels. Create detailed graphical or tabular reports from gathered system usage statistics and use this information as basis for optimizing resources and planning new system investments.

Features

SystemAnalyzer is a monitoring and reporting tool for system resources with extension for metering distributed grid computing environments.

Systems Resources Monitoring

Effectively monitor systems resources usage. SystemAnalyzer gathers CPU, memory and I/O statistics and provides enterprise-wide comparison of system usage down to the single user.. Enable performance improvements by identifying bottlenecks, undesirable usage patterns and systems needing tuning. Improve capacity performance planning and IT investment. Reduce IT spending by delaying system investments until the need is documented.

Software Inventory

Software inventory reports can show all (or specific) applications and the workstations in which these applications are installed. The reports may also be aggregated to look at all (or specific) workstations and produce inventory of software reports for a workgroup, or even summarize IT asset inventory reports across the entire organization.

Chargeback Accounting

Generate IT audit reports to easily assign the cost of system resource usage to user groups, projects, business units, or even global sites. Chargeback can be done for several resources, such as a cost factor by CPU seconds (usually CPU speed dependent), but other factors, such as memory size and bandwidth, may also be brought into account. Combined with Open iT Analysis Server, SystemAnalyzer chargeback mechanisms are virtually unlimited.

GRID Extension

SystemAnalyzer GRID Extension offers plugins and connectors for metering distributed grid computing environments such as LSF, PBS Professional, Open PBS, Sun Grid Engine and TORQUE. Use SystemAnalyzer GRID to track issues, such as causes of failed and pending jobs, for a more improved grid analysis.

SystemAnalyzer GRID Extension enables creating grid reports and performing advanced analysis on these data:

  • Name of the project in which the job belongs
  • User name of submitter
  • The command that the job ran
  • Maximum resident set size (physical memory used)
  • Maximum virtual memory usage
  • Elapsed time from job start to finish
  • Time in queue + Elapsed time

Find out exactly why the job is pending with the following measurements available for grid analysis:

  • Reason why job is pending
  • Requested resources, describing which resources the pending job requires
  • Number of hosts in which a given pending reason is valid
  • Number of pending reasons in report interval
  • Elapsed time for selected pending reasons
  • Project, User, Queue, Command etc. of the pending jobs

Reports

SystemAnalyzer’s flexible reporting capability provides reports on system usage, from an enterprise-wide view down to a single user, across systems and departments.

License Compliance Report – This report shows license compliance of applications that are not using license managers by comparing ownership and usage.

Daily Average CPU Utilization – Track IT assets, watch trends, discover bottlenecks, reduce downtime and generate IT audit reports to easily assign the cost of resource usage to user groups, projects, business units or even global sites.

CPU Usage in Percent – Learn how resources are really being utilized. A server’s CPU capacity may be fully utilized like what is shown in this graph but looking into details, there may be programs consuming all the resources, making the server completely unavailable for other programs to run.
