Brother-Hawk™ – Advanced Lights-Out Alerting Solution.
Improve Performance and Profitability
Brother-Hawk provides unique insight into performance issues by monitoring your databases 24x7 and alerting you to performance issues before they become
performance nightmares. DBI has automated advanced lights-out database monitoring to free our customers to pursue other important business opportunities.
Brother-Hawk extends DB2 LUW database performance monitoring functions to include three levels of customized alerts --- your
lights-out alerting of potential performance management issues has never been so on-time and on-target. You're in control --- define alert rule filters to
monitor all databases, specific tables in a specific database, tablespaces, SQL statements, and even Transaction Response times. Choose to monitor and
alert 24/7 or select any window of time; choose days and hours to best meet your needs. You also control the frequency of your rule execution. Monitor and
alert once a day or every 30 minutes --- you're in charge.
A unique alert squelch feature suppresses duplicate alerts to minimize alert noise. Squelch analyzes event correlation and
de-duplicates alerts to provide clean, meaningful alerts.
Execute operating system commands when an alert triggers. You define the actions to take in response to specific alerts. For example, to force an
application off, execute runstats, or allocate additional space.
Customize Alert Delivery
Choose to receive e-mail and/or SNMP trap messages when alerts occur, and plug Brother-Hawk into your enterprise IBM
Tivoli, CA Unicenter NSM®, HP OpenView, or similar consoles if you like. Tailor your alert message to the delivery method. Your message can be as
terse or verbose as you choose.
How Easy Is It?
Everything is managed through an easy-to-use central console.
