Overview
Contents
  • ASAP Resources
  • Internet - http//NonStopAsap.Com
  • Manuals - TIM Independent Products CD
  • Training - Technical Update Training CD 30
  • Presentation Provides Overview of
  • Availability concepts
  • What is ASAP?
  • Release 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 update examples
  • Before discussing ASAP
  • Its important to understand, why monitor
    availability?
  • Its because monitoring increases actual
    availability.
  • To understand why, first discuss availability
    concepts.

4
Dependencies
Availability
  • Scenario - Person needs Taxi
  • Has No Cash... so needs ATM
  • Assumes ATM will be Available
  • Availability has many dependencies

Right Card.. Valid Pin.. Remember Pin.. No Line..
Atm Up.. Network Up.. Routers Up.. Server Up..
Application running.. Account valid.. Balance
OK.. Atm ?
5
Is a Relative Notion
Availability
  • Scenario - Person in hurry - Has 2 minutes to
    catch Taxi
  • If there is a long line, for example Q10
  • Even though ATM is Operational
  • For User at end of the line
  • ATM is NOT Available

6
Service Level Objectives
Availability
  • People define Availability according to their
    objectives.
  • Formal notion is called - Service Level
    ObjectivesEasy to remember, if SLO not met...
    things slow down.
  • ATM Service Level Objectives - Taxi fare
  • Status Up
  • Queue 0
  • Cash 20

7
Varies with Usage
Availability
  • User definition of Availability varies with
    usage.
  • Definition of ATM Availability is different for
    20 Taxi fare versus 300 Air fare
  • Goal ATM
  • Status Up
  • Queue 0
  • Cash 20

8
Depends on Application
Availability
  • Availability depends on how you intend to use
    object.
  • People define Availability based on their own
    criteria.
  • Goal Air Fare
  • Status Up
  • Queue 0
  • Cash 300
  • What if Air Fare were 800?
  • Would ATM be available?
  • Depends on Policy, not Hardware.

Review
Availability
  • Availability
  • Has many Dependencies
  • Is a relative Notion
  • Depends on Usage or Application
  • Can be defined with Service Level Objectives
  • To provide true High Availability Enterprise
  • Cannot just Monitor Hardware Operating System
  • But must also Monitor Availability of Application
    Domains
  • External Monitoring inadequate Apps Hang, Loop,
    Deadlock
  • External Monitoring cant know about internal
    domains values
  • If Application Domain Service Levels are not
    monitored, its impossible to know when an
    enterprise becomes unavailable.

10
Availability Monitoring Infrastructure
WhatisASAP?
  • An Availability Monitoring Infrastructure
  • For NonStop Servers
  • Engineered specifically for NonStop Server
    Architecture
  • Provides NonStop Server Agents, Process-Pairs,
    Fault-Tolerant DB,and published API for
    applications.
  • Automatically Restarts/Reconfigures when Cpus
    and/or Devices go up/down.

11
Not an Enterprise Management Framework
WhatASAP is NOT
  • ASAP is not an enterprise management framework
    such as Unicenter, NetView, OpenView, ...

    for NSK
  • Engineered specifically for NonStop servers
  • Includes deep system and subsystem agents
  • Includes massively-parallel shared-segment API
  • Includes patented provider interface 6301557

46
EDL
ASAP Status Update
  • What is EDL ?
  • A meta-data language file that defines how
    NonStop Server availability domains relate to
    ASAP features and functions.
  • Developers use EDL
  • To define how to monitor Subsystem Availability
  • To define how to monitor Application Availability
  • EDL is not something that ASAP users
  • Need to see,
  • Understand,
  • Or even be aware of

47
Why Care about EDL?
ASAP Status Update
  • EDL was designed to define availability
    properties
  • However EDL resulted in many additional benefits
  • Allows users to have different sets of customized
    ASAP settings.
  • Allows entire environments to be archived for
    later reference.
  • Observed behavior can be shared with other ASAP
    users. 
  • ASAP environments can be mailed to other people.
  • Useful for Application and System reporting.
  • Both Schema and Data can be stored in EDL files
  • Allows an entire ASAP environment to be saved in
    an EDL file.
  • Means you can completely snapshot or capture
    situations.
  • Means you can snapshot your entire system/app
    configuration.
  • EDL Files can be saved, mailed, reviewed, and
    displayed.

48

55
Availability Summary
ASAP Summary
  • Definition of Availability is subjective. It
    depends on how you intend to use object.
  • Studies indicate if you monitor
    AvailabilityActual object Availability is
    increased...
  • If Application Service Levels are not monitored,
    you will not know when Applications become
    unavailable.
  • ASAP provides both Availability monitoring, and
    Service-Level Objectives monitoring.
