This IBM® Redpaper discusses large-scale implementation of IBM Tivoli® Composite Application Manager for WebSphere® and IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Response Time Tracking. Large-scale implementation is typically characterized by the number of monitoring agents deployed and the number of transactions load-managed. A typical large-scale implementation of a monitoring product contains the following challenges:
- Keeping up the performance of the monitoring tools to accommodate the processing load from the agents.
- Automation of installation, update, and maintenance of monitoring agents based on silent installation and automated update.
- Specific day-to-day maintenance actions to ensure performance and availability of the monitoring solution.
This IBM Redpaper addresses these issues with regard to the implementation of ITCAM for WebSphere and ITCAM for Response Time Tracking on distributed platforms. The discussion is divided into planning issues, implementation guides, and maintenance considerations.
