Help/Systems, LLC, an independent provider of automated operations, security, and business intelligence software for IBM Power Systems servers running IBM i, has updated to version 11 its Robot/NETWORK network management solution. Robot/NETWORK now includes a Performance Center for displaying performance statistics from connected IBM i servers.

The Performance Center collects IBM i performance statistics and displays them using graphs, charts, and tables. Users can set multiple threshold levels for collected statistics, and the Performance Center uses easily identifiable icons to let users know if any threshold levels have been exceeded.

A summary tab provides a high-level overview of system statuses, and provides drill-down ability to see if any thresholds have been exceeded. The Performance Center also includes customizable dashboards with graphs and gauges that display current and historical performance statistics.

The Performance Center builds on the initial release of Robot/NETWORK version 11, which included the Product Metrics Dashboard, enhancements to the Status Center, and new status escalation and assignment options.
