BlueStripe Performance Center for System Center

Complete Application Management From Within System Center Operations Manager

The BlueStripe Performance Center for Microsoft System Center gives System Center users a single view from which to manage application availability and performance.

System Center users get three key capabilities all from within the Operations Manager console:

  • Live application service level monitoring dashboards with integrated health monitors
  • Dynamic application and server dependency maps for deep triage/troubleshooting
  • Direct workflow integration with System Center for problem remediation

The Performance Center makes System Center a complete service delivery platform.

Dynamic Application Discovery and MappingDynamic Application Discovery and Mapping

Live Distributed Application Maps loaded into System Center Operations Manager give System Center owners a single view that includes applications, transactions, and System Center infrastructure data:

  • Updated in real-time with application changes
  • Cross-Platform, Cross-System support for mapping and monitoring
  • Infrastructure Health Monitors overlaid on live maps

Triage and Root Cause AnalysisTriage and Root Cause Analysis – Direct from the Application Map

Performance Center application maps are live – so users can identify slow and failing components and connections – and drill in to determine root cause of the performance problem.

  • “Heat maps” show slow, failed connections between application components
  • Drill into individual components to show application and process performance metrics including response times, application load, server health, and more
  • Detailed visibility for root cause analysis
