Welcome to Foglight Infrastructure Utilities

Welcome to Foglight Infrastructure Utilities

Foglight Infrastructure Utilities consists of the following components:

  • Foglight® Web Monitor allows you to monitor Web transactions that occur between your Web sites and the end users, by tracking response time statistics from one or more locations. Better management of your Web sites can be achieved when you are alerted of potential problems, before end users are affected. This ensures consistent performance of your Web sites at established service levels.
  • Foglight® Net Monitor provides device availability and packet loss monitoring between monitoring locations and network devices. You can use it to monitor the network against service level agreements, and to check for the presence of devices that are critical to your operating environment.
  • Foglight® for PowerVM allows you to monitor IBM® PowerVM® environments. Foglight alerts you about infrastructure problems as soon as they develop, enabling you to resolve issues proactively before end users are affected. Early intervention ensures consistent application performance at established service levels. Foglight for PowerVM monitors the health of your virtual system by tracking the levels of resource utilization such as CPU, network, and memory consumption of individual objects in your integrated environment.
