Expertise for application infrastructure monitoring
HP Operations Smart Plug-ins (SPIs) allows for performance and availability monitoring of packaged applications and feeds that information to a central HP Operations Manager server. SPIs extend the functionality of HP Operations Manager agents with domain expertise that knows exactly what to monitor based on the application, device, etc. that is being monitored. Through the use of SPIs, you increase your productivity and efficiency by filtering out information that does not pertain to the IT component being monitored.
Heterogeneous Monitoring: Smart Plug-ins monitor all the components of modern IT Infrastructure, right from hardware till application layer across multiple vendor solutions.
Short Learning Curve: All Smart Plug-ins has similar architecture and components. So you learn once and use it for different monitoring needs.
Modular Design: Smart Plug-in follow client server architecture and integrate with HP's other monitoring, graphing, reporting servers. This makes them easy to plug and play.
