    Abstract

    This IBM® Redpaper discusses an overall planning for availability and performance monitoring solution using the IBM Tivoli® suite of products. The intended audience for this paper includes IT architects and solution developers who need an overview of the IBM Tivoli solution.

    The Tivoli availability and performance monitoring portfolio has grown significantly in since 2003 because of the strategic acquisition that enhanced the Tivoli product line. These acquisitions also expanded the product coverage.

    The broad spectrum of the product solution usually left the IT architect to understand only a part of it. Some solutions might be accommodated with a newly integrated product, but because the designer might not be aware of other products, other more strategic options might be missed.

    In this paper, we provide an overview of the Tivoli product line that has interaction with availability and performance monitoring solution. An additional service management approach is taken by adding Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) consideration to the solution.
