The team continues to hammer away on enhanced and new application template content for Server & Application Monitor. The list below adds to what has been discussed in recent earlier posts, which you can find here, here, and here.
In this update, we will walk through the latest updates, including:
Verson 2 of Office 365 monitoring – We’ve reorganized the templates a bit, but more importantly, fixed an issue some customers were experiencing where components would randomly go into unknown status
Citrix XenServer – Net-new template support
Citrix PVS Accelerator for XenServer – Net-new template support
Oracle RAC (Real Application Clusters) – Net-new template support
As always, please let us know if you have any comments about these templates or requests to add to our list for new template creation.
The info provided in this post is relatively high-level. Click on the links to see the complete detail for each new or updated template.
As mentioned above, besides reorganizing the templates a bit, the main update here is the fix to the issue some folks had reported where components would randomly go unknown. The issue was due to the fact that Microsoft has a “Global Throttling Policy,” which limits simultaneous connections from one client for O365 and maximum three simultaneous connections are allowed.
To overcome this concurrency issue, we have implemented a locking mechanism and restricted three scripts establishing a connection with Office 365.
Includes the following metrics available for collection:
PVS - Accelerator Eviction Rate
PVS - Accelerator Hit Rate
PVS - Accelerator Miss Rate
PVS - Accelerator Traffic Clients Sent
PVS - Accelerator Traffic Servers Sent
PVS - Accelerator Read Rate
PVS - Accelerator Saved Network Traffic
PVS - Accelerator Space Utilization
That’s it for this round of content updates! We have more in process and will post to let you all know as soon as they are ready. As always, you can suggest new templates or features for SAM by creating a Feature Request.
