Prerequisites

  • A good understanding of network infrastructure management

Course Objectives

  • Plan a scalable management of the IT infrastructure of your business
  • Gain insights about monitored data and customize information appropriate to your role or business context using the Unified Management Portal (UMP)
  • Set up the basic parameters of the Nimsoft Alarm Server (NAS) quickly to view and manage alarms
  • Extend the monitoring capabilities of CA UIM through the configuration of probes
  • Leverage probe package functionality to preconfigure monitored metrics sets and deploy these standardized sets rapidly and effectively to the managed infrastructure
  • Scale the CA UIM architecture to meet your business needs by deploying multiple hubs

Course Content

Your IT mix represents an increasingly unrelated blend of cloud-based services, dynamic virtualized environments, and legacy on-premise applications. While ensuring optimal performance of all these services is vital, it is growing increasingly complex, costly, and time consuming to monitor and control the performance of these distributed environments. With CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM), you get a simple yet powerful way to track all the services your business cares about, no matter where they reside.

CA UIM delivers the essential capabilities you need to proactively monitor and manage alarms, performance, and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) across even the most dynamic and complex deployments. Instead of having to deploy multiple point solutions, you can leverage CA UIM and get a single platform to manage your IT infrastructure and services—whether they are on premise or in the cloud.
