Xangati announced the XSR11 upgrade to its suite of software tools that employ a 360-degree, cross-silo approach to provide live and continuous monitoring of an organization’s mission-critical virtualized infrastructure.

The new suite incorporates the Xangati Executive Dashboard, which provides an executive-level view of VDI and VI (Virtual Infrastructure) components of the network, including detailed recordings and reporting. Xangati focuses on network performance, availability, and capacity utilization – both instantaneously and over time – providing continuous real-time feedback for workload performance management in virtualized environments.

Xangati’s weighted capacity index ensures that customers achieve maximum capacity utilization without experiencing the “contention storms” that could degrade performance of virtualized network infrastructure.

Armed with real-time views of network activity, IT personnel can use Xangati’s health-score measurements – key performance indicators (KPIs) of network infrastructure – to provide a single, consolidated view of multiple applications and multiple platforms.

Personnel can even take look-ahead views to determine whether or when network performance will decline, and can then take quick remedial action to maximize the ROI of their network infrastructure and to ensure that they meet SLA commitments.

The Xangati MyDashboard allows users to customize their views to include, for example, just a particular application, or just the activity of a particular data center, cost center, or department – according to individual need or preference – to create a comprehensive aggregated performance index or even to create a live view of activity at a particular instant. Or a customized view can be built around multiple objects of the same type, such as groups of virtual machines, desktops, desktop pools, hosts, datastores, network interfaces, or physical endpoints or servers. MyDashboard therefore extends the benefits of real-time performance monitoring to business-unit executives and managers, allowing them to better manage application workloads in their virtualized environments.

The Xangati suite also incorporates the company’s StormTracker technology, which tracks and analyzes contention storms on the network, and for any virtualized workloads, whether VDI, VI or VNI (Virtual Network Infrastructure). Any authorized user, and even external users with authorization, can then submit a Visual Trouble Ticket, through which end-user issues can be tracked on a recording portal integrated with the organization’s service desk. This capability extends even to WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation), allowing administrators to specify multiple sets of global credentials to facilitate support for multiple Windows domains, to enable or disable WMI access globally or to individual Windows machines, or to perform bulk updates for WMI configuration.
