Mission Critical Expands Offering for BackOffice
- By Scott Bekker
- December 16, 1999
Systems management vendor Mission Critical Software expanded its OnePoint
Operations Manager toolset for Microsoft BackOffice to support SQL Server, Site
Server and distributed transactions.
The toolset is designed to help IT managers monitor and manage service
levels, detect and automatically correct application failures, and track
application performance. Prior to supporting SQL Server and Site Server,
Mission Critical’s tool managed Microsoft Proxy Server, Microsoft System
Management Server, Microsoft Transaction Server, and Microsoft SNA Server.
The SQL Server component performs proactive database queries and monitors performance
counters and events such as user utilization, CPU impact, lock usage, and
database replication between instances. For Site Server, Operations Manager
manages the availability and performance of components such as List Builder,
Membership Broker, Push, and Search. It also provides information about when
authentication requests and/or deployments fail and provides alerts on obscure
errors that indicate the potential for a more drastic error.
Support for both Microsoft Transaction Server and Microsoft Distributed
Transaction Coordinator in the tool detects, alerts on and automatically
responds to problems with transaction-based applications such as SQL Server and
SNA Server, theoretically before the problems develop into outages.
Operations Manager for Microsoft BackOffice is currently available.
