Virtualization using Citrix XenServer offers enterprises great benefits - cost savings, energy savings, operational efficiency from resource sharing etc. At the same time, virtualization also introduces more complexity. There are additional layers of software and hardware to be managed. Users of virtualized applications expect the infrastructure to be as reliable and as fast as their experience with applications on physical infrastructures. A single failure in the infrastructure can cause a slow-down in application performance and can impact the user experience and key business processes.
More often than not, Citrix XenServer performance management tools are limited: A typical Citrix XenServer monitor provides graphs and reports on virtual machine and hypervisor resource usage, but do not have visibility beyond the virtualization tier. They also provide only raw data that administrators have to sift through to identify where issues are originating. In other words, there is very little actionable information for administrators to quickly determine what they need to do to keep their Citrix XenServer infrastructure working at peak performance.
Performance management tools that are silo-oriented are not sufficient to manage today's complex, inter-dependent IT infrastructures. When users complain about performance problems, the problem could be anywhere in the infrastructure – in the network, database, application, storage, or in the Citrix XenServers. When IT administrators are provided access to specialized tools for each infrastructure tier, they often struggle to determine the true root-cause of a problem, adding time and cost to problem resolution, while service performance suffers.
eG Enterprise is a complete performance management solution for IT infrastructures that are partly or fully virtualized. By monitoring every layer of every tier of the infrastructure – from network to the servers, from the virtualization platform to storage – eG Enterprise provides administrators with total performance visibility. With the eG Enterprise monitoring, diagnosis and reporting solution, administrators get actionable insights into the true cause of cross-domain service performance issues so they can dramatically accelerate the discovery, diagnosis, and resolution of service performance issues in their virtual, cloud, and physical infrastructures.
