Eyeglass Vblock Connect CA Nimsoft

Uploaded by Superna

As customers rapidly adopt the Vblock System from VCE, management tools need to keep pace ensuring that this converged infrastructure is managed as whole and not on the basis of the individual components. SupernerNet.Converge Probe for CA Nimsoft leverages VCE VisionTM Intelligent Operations software and VMware vCenterTM software to provide a single integration point for VCETM Vblock System management. With Eyeglass Vblock Connect probe and CA Nimsoft, VCE Vblock fault monitoring, root cause failure analysis and SLA monitoring of critical applications are dramatically simplified. CA Nimsoft with Eyeglass Vblock Connect CA Nimsoft probe offers visualization of all Vblock System components and virtual machines with real-time health status, alarm aggregation and component alarm tagging.

  • Converged View and Logical to Physical
  • Health Status and Root Cause
  • Intelligent Alarms and Component Zoom
VCE Vision Ready

What is this?

The Probe fully leverages the Nimsoft bus architecture to scale alarm collection and delivery to UMP dashboards.  The probe supports many to one management of Vblocks in a centralized probe deployment or leveraging distributed Robots for geographic deployments using the Nimsoft architecture.

“Converged View” correlates virtual to physical topology from vCenter and VCE VisionTM software into a unified view of all components within a Vblock System chassis. 

Logical To Physical” – A key management function on Converged Infrastructure is combining logical and physical management of components.  

“Health Status” exposes Vblock System overall health status, along with Vblock System component level health status to facilitate monitoring and root cause analysis of any issues associated with the Vblock System.  

“Root Cause” displays a visual domain (Compute, Storage and Network) and component topology view with a simple color-coding of components or entire Vblock System.

“Intelligent Alarms” tag component alarms with subsystem information to help identify the exact component affected.

“Component Zoom” displays rack location, rack unit location, serial number and version number information from the Converged View tree.



Requires Nimsoft 6.x or 7.x and a Vblock environment running VCE Vision Intelligent Operations.
