VANTAGEwatch family includes Linux support and extends visibility
to the edge of the network

Trinagy has developed the VANTAGEwatch family of agent products to give service providers and enterprises the intelligent insight necessary to meet service level commitments through all system and application resources on their networks. The VANTAGEwatch suite - TRENDwatch , SYSwatch , APPwatch and RMONwatch - delivers truly integrated data to give a complete picture of the network, top to bottom, in real time and in any user-chosen report format. The entirely standards-based architecture means users do not have to view separate reports and draw correlations from the data themselves. Instead, they can measure any variable they choose within any context instantly, leaving nothing on the network to chance. They avoid possible downtime on the network affecting their ability to meet service-level commitments that often come with financial penalties for non-compliance. VANTAGEwatch is also the first complete agent suite to support Linux, in addition to Windows and UNIX. Linux is fast becoming the operating system of choice for service providers and large enterprises for use on systems and servers within their infrastructures.

How VANTAGEwatch Works

Trinagy’s VANTAGEwatch family gathers reliable metrics of performance and response time of systems and applications. With VANTAGEwatch, users can isolate and identify the source of potential performance issues anywhere in the network, answering that all-important question - is it the network, system or application?

As a result, users can identify and respond to performance problems or even proactively circumvent issues before downtime results in financial loss or even worse, the loss of customers. When coupled with TREND’s robust analytic and reporting capabilities, VANTAGEwatch enables service providers and enterprises to document and deliver the guaranteed level of service specified in the service level agreements they have with their customers.

The fully programmable VANTAGEwatch solution suite includes:

· SYSwatch, which is RFC 1514 compliant and can look at the servers themselves to monitor system performance. Users can identify overloaded systems, disk/file space shortages and poorly performing servers before they impact users.

· APPwatch, which tracks actual user response time of applications and monitors availability of services. This ensures high availability and peak performance of mission-critical applications.

· RMONwatch, which has the functionality of APPwatch and SYSwatch as well as all 20 groups of RMON I and II that measure network and application traffic in real time.

· TRENDwatch, which will be installed on all TREND® servers at no additional charge and will monitor server resources and processes of TREND, Trinagy’s performance management software.

The products bear the Trinagy stamp of full modularity, scalability and openness to extract data from any source.

Notes Steve Grinder, Trinagy’s director of product management, "Our VANTAGEwatch products will make a difference to service providers’ and enterprises’ bottom lines. Service providers can accurately predict and respond to issues affecting their service level agreements with customers, before they lose money for not fulfilling their end of the bargain. Global IT managers can sleep at night knowing they can get a unified, instant picture of end-to-end performance across the enterprise, eliminating potential problems before they result in downtime and angry end-users."

The Technology Behind Trinagy’s TREND

TREND’s network data repository is a powerful, open, relational database that provides the links for integration into other OSS/BSS systems such as network inventory, event correlation, billing, and provisioning systems. Trinagy’s TREND solution suite automates the collection and analysis of performance data, couples it with its industry-leading predictive tools to warn users of impending network problems, and delivers comprehensive reports with full interactive access from Web browsers. Built on a distributed open architecture, TREND scales to meet the demanding requirements of even the largest networks. TREND supports custom report design, tailored threshold definitions, and specialized service level calculations required with today’s IP-based, e-business infrastructures. With TREND, service providers and enterprises can proactively manage service level agreements and optimise existing resources. Further, they can gain a competitive edge through proactive network planning and differentiated, revenue generating services.

Pricing and Availability

Prices for SYSwatch and APPwatch start at $100 and $150 (U.S. list) respectively, depending on platform, when purchased with TREND. The price of RMONwatch starts at $450 (U.S. list). Volume pricing is available. The VANTAGEwatch suite will be available by the end of March 2001.
