Velocity Software, Inc. is recognized as a leader in the performance measurement of z/VM and Linux on z. The Velocity Performance Suite consist of a set of tools that enable installations running z/VM to manage Linux and z/VM performance. In addition, many components of server farms can be measured and analyzed. Performance data can be viewed real-time through the use of either 3270 or a browser. The CLOUD Implementation (zPRO) component is designed for full cloud PaaS implementation as well as to extend the capabilities of the z/VM sysprog (system programmer) to the browser world. This feature moves system management to the point-and-click crowd. Archived data and reports can be kept available of long term review and reporting usine zMAP. The zVPS, formally ESALPS, components consist of: zMON (formally ESAMON - real-time display of performance data), zTCP (formally ESATCP - SNMP data collection), zMAP (formally ESAMAP - historical reporting and archiving), zVWS (formally ESAWEB - z/VM based web server), zTUNE (a subscription service), zVIEW (formally SHOWCASE - web based viewing of performance data), zPRO (new to the quality line of Velocity Software Products). Velocity continues to work with other software vendors to ensure smooth interface with or from other products such as VM:Webgateway, CA-Webgateway, EnterpriseWeb, MXG, MICS. Velocity software remains the leader and inovator in the z/VM performance, Linux performance, Managing cloud computing arenas.

Linux Application Accounting Example

In the following example, several features of zVPS can be shown. This report shows all the processes either as part of an application, or when the application is not provided by the installation, then using just the parent/child relationships. Each application for websphere (for example) have a high level process ID that when provided allows for websphere applications to be reported here in terms of CPU by application.

This report also shows that it is possible to monitor many servers on one z/VM system at very low cost. Note the normal cost of SNMP of between .1% and .3%. This is using the Velocity Software version of netsnmp. The normal version of netsnmp that is shipped with suse or redhat normally requires 2-3 times as much CPU.
