Linux Monitoring & Management


Hyperic HQ's SIGAR technology provides complete access to hardware and operating system level monitoring on all flavors of Linux including RedHat Enterprise, SuSe, Gentoo, Fedora and others on both x86 as well as AMD64/EM64T processor architectures.

Each Linux machine is first inventoried with discreet detection of every CPU, Filesystem, and Network Interface configured on the host. HQ can then measure the CPU activity of each individual CPU, complete memory utilization, local and remote filesystem statistics, as well as network activity on each interface.

Additionally, HQ can monitor individual processes on the machine for any system level services using SIGAR's Process Table Query Language technology which allows a user to easily define criteria which uniquely identifies a process which should be monitored for availability, memory, and CPU consumption.

HQ also provides the ability to monitor system events by tracking and reporting on any log, configuration, or login event into the system. These events are recorded in the HQ database and can be used to diagnose system performance issues, enforce security policies, and perform impact analysis on any configuration change made to the Linux environment.
