He launched his IT career in 1989 and his expertise led him through roles as a classroom instructor, courseware designer, desktop support tech, server support engineer, and software distribution expert. In the early 2000s, Adato became involved with systems monitoring and has since worked with a wide range of tools, including Tivoli, Nagios, Patrol, Zenoss, OpenView, SiteScope, and, of course, SolarWinds.


SolarWinds is excited to announce the first of a three-part series breaking down how you can efficiently and easily assess the health of your IT systems environment, starting with visibility. In this webinar, we'll discuss how to better understand AND view your entire IT environment's health and performance with a practical lens by tackling the following visibility topics:

 

  • Health and performance of your IT environment no matter where it sits (cloud, on-premises, hybrid)
  • Applying templates for metrics, common rules and regulations
  • Hardware health and status of your physical IT assets
  • Key metrics and logging data
  • Monitoring of configuration changes
  • Visibility into the entire application stack

Now that you have visibility into your IT environment (Visibility, Part 1 ), in part two of our three-part series, we take you through best practices for troubleshooting application issues with today's hybrid IT environments. Troubleshooting issues across the technology stack made up of a combination of legacy and modern applications can be daunting. With so many moving parts and the pressure to release application updates early and often, things will break, and performance issues will pop up.


During this webinar, we'll discuss how to leverage the visibility you have into your IT environment to identify issues quickly, pinpoint the root cause and promptly get to remediation.Troubleshooting techniques to be discussed include:

 

  • Setting thresholds and proactive alerting
  • Infrastructure dependency mapping—pinpoint root cause within physical and virtual environments
  • Identify where the problem lies by seeing network relationships between applications and servers
  • Isolate VM performance issues
  • Correlate configuration changes with performance issues
  • View log data and system performance side by side
  • Aggregate and analyze thousands of Syslog and traps to assist in root cause analysis

One thing that’s always constant, is change. In this three-part webinar series, we've covered how important it is to have visibility into your IT environment's health and performance and how quick and accurate troubleshooting is critical to minimizing the impact on your customers and your business.

 

The next step in the monitoring lifecycle is the regular evaluation and reevaluation of your applications and infrastructure to accurately forecast and optimize your capacity planning. In order to make improvements, you need to understand historical performance, the current state of your IT environment, and plan for the future. You need to be able to anticipate changes in technology, workload and customer behavior. After you've optimized and planned, the cycle restarts.

 

In the last of our three-part series, we’ll take you through key processes to optimize your IT environment and plan for change including:

 

  • Understanding your historical and current resource capacity
  • Optimizing physical and virtual resources to right-size and maximize performance
  • Capacity forecasting
  • What-if resource modeling for future server and hardware additions
  • Load balancing for resource utilization and better VM performance
  • Mitigating unauthorized changes
  • Validating that changes are properly implemented
  • Monitoring for changes to previously optimized servers, applications, and databases
  • Hardware and software inventory lifecycle management impacting your investment, capacity, licenses, warranty status, etc.
