JP1/Integrated Management 2

Need to integrate data related to your systems, and to analyze and utilize the data from a variety of perspectives?

Product overview

With JP1/Integrated Management 2 - Manager, you can manage, in an integrated manner, the events occurring in your systems, along with various types of data and the relationships in the data. This in turn allows you to utilize the data efficiently and to provide users with the data they need, when they need it.

Accumulate data related to your systems and define relationships in the data

This product helps you collect all of the information you might need when making business decisions, such as data on system configurations, alert information, the status of business operations, the operating status of applications, and information about KPIs and costs. Based on expert knowledge, you can then define and graphically display relationships in the collected data. By accumulating knowledge and expertise in the form of data, JP1/Integrated Management 2 helps you achieve system operations that do not rely on specific operators.

Put your data to work

JP1/Integrated Management 2 enables operators in different positions and with different roles to easily check the data they need, without having to be aware of factors such as the location of the data, the interface used to obtain the data, or the configuration or relationality of the data. By selecting and executing suggestions that are based on accumulated operational rules and knowledge when a failure occurs, you can make sure that failures are handled in a thorough manner. This allows you to decide on the right way to handle each failure as well as the priority with which the failure should be handled from a business or service perspective. You can also ensure that everyone involved in the handling of the failure (regardless of their specific role) can ascertain statuses and share information in a timely manner, thus achieving the intelligent integrated operation of your systems as a whole.

Improve visualization of system-wide statuses

JP1/Integrated Management 2 obtains information about the components that make up a system, and aggregates and displays, on a single screen, the statuses of these components and any events that cause the statuses to change. Colored icons allow you to identify the status of each component, making it possible to understand the health of the entire system at a glance.
A sunburst chart allows you to gain an overall view of the statuses of components that make up a monitored system, and to easily check detailed information about components whose status is "Error" or "Warning".
You can also switch to a tree view, which displays the components of systems in a hierarchal configuration. This allows you to check the statuses of components such as the business operations (jobs) that are running on hosts, as well as the relationships among such components.
By selecting a component in either the sunburst chart or the tree view, you can filter the displayed events to show only those events that are related to the selected component. This helps to prevent important events from being overlooked.

Improve visualization of system-wide statuses

Quickly analyze the impact of failures by making use of various types of information related to the system

Based on the expert knowledge of engineers (such as the business system administrator's knowledge of the relationships among business operations and the infrastructure administrator's knowledge of the relationships among servers and applications), you can define, visualize, and accumulate information about relationships among system components. By visualizing and accumulating knowledge in this way, you can perform a variety of tasks without relying on a specific individual, such as an administrator or engineer. This knowledge enables operators to perform the initial isolation of a failure, to check the scope of impact of the failure on mission-critical systems, and more. For example, you can utilize the accumulated knowledge to easily let all of the relevant parties know that a failure on physical server A impacts not only business operations A, but also business operations B and C. You can understand the scope of impact of a problem even in an environment where different monitoring tools are being used to monitor cloud systems and on-premises systems.

Take a proactive approach to failure prevention

JP1/Integrated Management 2 can detect changes in the operating statuses of environments where business operations are executed, and thereby help you to prevent failures that would interrupt business operations. In addition to checking the execution statuses of business operations, you can check the usage statuses of resources pertaining to the relevant infrastructure components in order to identify issues such as insufficient disk space, increased CPU usage rates, degraded network performance, and increased memory usage. This allows you to isolate potential causes of failures before a failure occurs, and to quickly and efficiently take preventive measures, such as changing the operations to be executed or modifying the execution environment.

Take a proactive approach to failure prevention

Ensure the swift handling of failures by using operational suggestions

When a failure occurs, you can get suggestions on the best way to handle it. These suggestions are tailored to the system status at the time of the failure and are based on accumulated operational rules and knowledge. By selecting and executing these suggestions, operators responsible for system maintenance can ensure that failures are handled promptly and thoroughly.

Event management: Monitor the entire system from a single location to determine whether the system is problem-free

Collect and monitor various logs generated in the system

You can monitor Windows event logs, UNIX syslogs, and the logs of various applications in a single window. You can also filter the displayed information based on conditions such as the host name or level of severity, to show only the information you need. This helps you prevent important events from being overlooked, and improves the efficiency of monitoring operations.

Automate notifications (automated actions)

You can automate actions to be performed when an event is received, such as the sending of notifications or the acquisition of logs. For example, you can specify settings so that the necessary notifications are sent to all relevant parties at once.
By using the GUI, you can also check the statuses and results of automated actions, and then re-execute, cancel, or temporarily suspend a specific automated action as necessary.

Monitor the system efficiently, even during an event storm

During an event storm (a large number of events occurring at the same time), the events are aggregated in the display. This helps ensure that important events are handled, and prevents automatic actions, such as the sending of email notifications, from being performed multiple times for duplicate events. You can also suppress the forwarding of events from a host to the integrated manager, thereby minimizing the overall impact of an event storm on your monitoring operations.

Use on-screen guidance to expedite the initial response

In the event of a failure, JP1/Integrated Management 2 displays pre-registered information about the people in charge of investigating the failure (such as their names and contact information) and troubleshooting procedures. This enables operators to carry out the initial response quickly and appropriately. By using this on-screen guidance, you can save the time and the effort it would otherwise take to find the necessary information, and also ensure that all operators handle failures in the same way.

Note: JP1/Integrated Management 2 - Manager provides the same functions as JP1/Integrated Management - Manager.

Achieve intelligent system operations by linking with other JP1 products

Link JP1/Integrated Management 2 with other JP1 products to collect various types of data related to system operations (such as information about the relationships among business operations, the operating statuses of applications, and infrastructure configurations). This data can then be associated with events that occur in the system, and managed in an integrated manner. By using operational suggestions that are based on various types of data collected from JP1 products as well as accumulated operational rules and knowledge, you can achieve swift, thorough failure-handling operations that do not depend on specific operators.
This allows you to accurately and efficiently perform initial isolation of a failure in order to identify the scope of impact and the cause of the failure. Furthermore, by linking with products such as JP1/Navigation Platform and JP1/Automatic Operation, you can display the necessary operating procedures in an easy-to-understand visual format, and automate related tasks. This allows you to efficiently execute business operations, monitor your systems, get suggestions, and handle failures, even in situations where multiple business systems use the same infrastructure, as well as in situations where a combination of cloud and on-premises environments or physical and virtual environments is used.
