Microsoft Active Directory
This module optimizes Microsoft Active Directory performance and ensures availability through automated event detection and correction. It provides comprehensive management of Active Directory from a central, easy-to-use console, and lowers the support costs associated with managing your Microsoft Active Directory deployment.
Features & benefits
Supplies performance reporting.
Manages Microsoft Active Directory well beyond statistics provided by PerfMon counters. This module provides prepackaged performance and Service Level Agreement reports and stores performance data directly in a Microsoft SQL Server database, making long-term trend analysis easy.
Provides proactive event management.
Delivers robust fault management by proactively detecting potential problems that could impact the availability of your Microsoft Active Directory services.
Allows for easy automation.
Lets you easily set up event-driven actions-such as sending email or pager alerts, generating an SNMP trap or running a corrective fix program-to execute automatically when a specific condition exists.
Helps you lower support costs by enabling you to view the health and status of distributed Microsoft Active Directory services from one central location. AppManager® for Microsoft Active Directory delivers monitoring logic in prepackaged Knowledge Scripts that allow you to deploy policies quickly and easily
AppManager for Microsoft Active Directory provides out-of-the-box Knowledge Scripts that manage simple or complex events and collect data for diagnostics and real-time or historical performance analysis. Examples include:
Authentications. Monitors the number of Microsoft Active Directory authentications per second.
BridgeHeadChange. Monitors, identifies and alerts based on changes to the bridgehead server role.
CacheHitRate. Monitors the cache hit rate of name resolution.
ClientSessions. Checks the number of Microsoft Active Directory sessions from different clients.
