CA UIM (DX Infrastructure Manager) Review

Alarm management capabilities, extensible architecture and the hub queues configuration are some of the reasons we like this solution.

Valuable Features

Almost all the features are interesting, but the most valuable ones are:

  • Infrastructure monitoring (agent/agentless) covering networks, servers, databases, applications, virtual platforms, and a cloud environment
  • Alarm management capabilities
  • Hub queues configuration (SSL, post alarms and metrics, etc.)
  • Powerful UMP portal (especially for dashboards and reporting)
  • Extensible architecture

Improvements to My Organization

It has provided insight on almost all our information system components/layers using a single unified solution.

Room for Improvement

Product stability and performance, especially in Linux environments needs to be improved.

Use of Solution

I've used it for six months, mainly through testing it in a big bank context with a clustered architect.

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

There were some issues in displaying metrics in a large environment.

Other Solutions Considered

We did evaluate other products,
