Sun Management Center: Performance Reporting Manager

13 Feb

Earlier in the day, I blogged about electric meters that gather data. How do you extrapolate this concept to the Computer Systems arena? Electric meters that collect raw data over a period of time are similar to agents that collect data from target systems. Once this data is collected, it should be stored at a centralized location and shall be processed and presented for consumption of end users. They best way to present it to users is by means of performance reports. This is precisely what is done by Performance Reporting Manager plugin of Sun Management Center product. This is a great tool that enables Sun Management Center agents to collect trending data. This tool can generate a wide variety of reports.
