MOM 2000 Core MonitoringTiered Implementation
  • Allows management of multiple environments to be
    unified in one place in the top tier
  • Corpnet
  • Extranet
  • Internet
  • Allows horizontal expansion for scalability
    within a managed environment
  • Single monitoring rule set for the enterprise
    simplifies administrative effort

7
MOM 2000 Core MonitoringScalability Limitations
  • Insertion data rate vs. grooming rate
  • Forces tradeoffs and compromises within
    Configuration Groups
  • Number of managed servers
  • Volume of data collection (limits Management Pack
    deployments)
  • Retention of historical data

8
MOM 2000 Core MonitoringScalability Limitations
  • High number of MOM Configuration Groups and MOM
    servers increases TCO
  • Hardware resources under-utilized
  • Encourages proliferation of specialized MOM
    Configuration Groups vs. unified MOM
    infrastructure providing Monitoring as a service
