Hyperic HQ is an enterprise management/monitoring solution that includes HQ Server and HQ Agents that monitor the web servers, application servers, databases and operating systems on your computers.
Hyperic HQ 2.0 adds a completely redesigned portal user interface, new automatic problem identification technology, and a number of new plugins. Designed with feedback from some of the most sophisticated IT departments in the world, HQ 2.0's new features allow users to better understand how machines, servers, and services impact each other's performance and availability and provides them with the means to help identify and resolve problems before they become unmanageable.
Ever wonder how changes in the requests per minute of your webapp affect the amount of CPU and resident memory used by your container's JVM? Want to know how Linux shared memory characteristics affect the memory utilization of multiple JVMs on a single machine? Ever have an application that crashes periodically without any obvious signs of the events leading up to the failure?
HQ 2.0's new monitoring interface allows each user to build personalized monitoring views focused on answering these and many more questions. This release combines HQ's powerful non-invasive monitoring capability with a visual metaphor which helps users understand the interactions between machines, servers, and services.
HQ 2.0 also introduces a new problem identification mechanism based on a continuously updated model of the behavior of every metric collected from your infrastructure. This allows HQ to identify and call out deviations from the trends of any of the many metrics that it collects, helping users anticipate problems before they become unmanageable, as well as highlighting resources requiring immediate attention.
HQ 2.0 also includes a number of new plugins for products such as VMWare ESX and GSX, JBoss 4.0, Exchange, Bind, NTP, and more. The 2.0 plugin infrastructure is also the first to offer an open API called the Plugin Development Kit. The PDK includes example plugins which allow all users to develop their own HQ plugins.
HQ 2.0 is available as a fully functional evaluation copy capable of managing 3 machines. We invite you to download and experience the latest advancements in management technology.
