An IBM Cognos environment can be a volatile place. It is a challenging process to see the performance of the infrastructure and the activity within IBM Cognos at the same time. MetaManager™ Performance Monitoring looks to resolve this problem by providing users with automated monitoring on: Cognos Gateway, Dispatcher, and the Active Content Manager, and to be alerted to any change in status, such as a Gateway or Dispatcher failure. Based upon the status of these areas, MetaManager™ can take several actions.
When taking an action, MetaManager™ can send send alerts via email, call a WebRequest, or execute a custom script.
MetaManager™ gives users a couple of options when taking actions. You can create an action on any status change, so if something goes bad, you will know about it, and if it gets corrected, you will want to know about it as well.
