IBM's Tivoli Monitoring (ITM) is a system monitoring solution.IBM Tivoli Monitoring ReviewWe use IBM Tivoli Monitoring to help us monitor the health of our storage environment. Initially, we thought it would be a good way to use and report on any unknown issues. Our IT operations department is the only department who uses the software to monitor our SAN.,The GUI is easy to read. The software is fairly easy to configure. Almost real-time.,The software is not reliable at all. Reports errors that are false-negatives. Hard to configure alarms/alerts. Bulky installation (takes up quite a bit of space).,2,I would not purchase this again. Other software monitoring tools have been more reliable and easier to manage. Difficult to manage, if you patch the server the software is installed on and have to reboot it, IBM Tivoli Monitoring does not come up clean.,,Turbonomic (formerly VMTurbo), Cisco Unified Computing System Manager

We use IBM Tivoli Monitoring to help us monitor the health of our storage environment. Initially, we thought it would be a good way to use and report on any unknown issues. Our IT operations department is the only department who uses the software to monitor our SAN.
  • The GUI is easy to read.
  • The software is fairly easy to configure.
  • Almost real-time.
  • The software is not reliable at all.
  • Reports errors that are false-negatives.
  • Hard to configure alarms/alerts.
  • Bulky installation (takes up quite a bit of space).
If you are looking for a software that looks decent but is not something you truly rely on, this is it. I have had bad experiences with IBM Tivoli Monitoring reporting on system errors that were not evident on the systems themselves at all. There is a lot of specific alerting you can set up which is nice.
