eG Enterprise Change and Configuration Tracking

Eliminate Guesswork with Unified Configuration Visibility

Why Monitor Configuration and Change?

There are many instances of performance issues with business-critical services being caused because a server, network device, or application was not correctly configured. Human errors during updates to the configuration may also cause unexpected performance degradation.


Knowing what configuration changes have happened around the time when a significant performance change was observed allows administrators to more accurately and rapidly identify the cause of a problem and to bring the IT services back to normal operation quickly. By eliminating guesswork, unified configuration and performance monitoring allows IT organizations to reduce mean time to repair, improve service uptime and reduce IT operations costs.

Change and Configuration Monitoring using eG Enterprise

eG Enterprise provides administrators with the ability to view configuration and change management from a central web console (Figure 1). It employs agent-based and agentless mechanisms to extract critical configuration and change details from each of the managed components in the environment.

In addition to configuration data from the network and operating system layers, the eG Configuration Manager also obtains configuration information at the application layers.

Capabilities of the eG Configuration Manager

By tracking the configurations of a component over time, eG Enterprise also reports on configuration changes and when the changes happened (Figure 3). By time correlating change information with performance information, administrators can get vital clues as to whether any configuration changes (whether automated, manual, or unintentional) may have caused a performance degradation.

Administrators can also use Change and Configuration Tracking to compare configurations across applications, servers, and networks. This way, if one server is performing well, but another is not, an administrator can quickly determine configuration differences between the two servers that could be responsible for the performance difference.
