    Posted 26 days ago

    In today's interconnected and hybrid cloud environments, effective system monitoring is crucial for maintaining performance, reliability, and security.

    This technical presentation explores how Microsoft Azure enables comprehensive monitoring of the IBM Power ecosystem, explicitly focusing on AIX, Linux on Power, and Linux on Z Series operating systems. Further, active monitoring of HMC and VIOS is considered. 

    Key Points

    1. Azure Monitor Overview
      • Azure Monitor provides a unified platform for collecting, analyzing, and acting on telemetry data from various sources.
      • Detail on Azure Monitor SCOM MI
      • Demonstration of how Azure Monitor integrates with the IBM Power ecosystem

    2. Operating System Monitoring with NiCE Agents
      • AIX, Linux on Power (ppcle), and zLinux (s390x) require specialized monitoring agents. We provide details on how these agents work and are built. 
      • Highlight the key role of NiCE agents in collecting and transmitting telemetry data from these platforms to Azure Monitor.

    3. SCOM Managed Instances
      • Azure Monitor leverages System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) Managed Instances to extend monitoring capabilities.
      • Explain how SCOM integrates with IBM Power systems.

    4. Azure Monitor Ingestion Pipelines
      • Discuss options for ingesting data into Azure Monitor, including the new ingestion pipelines.
      • Emphasize scalability, reliability, and flexibility.

    Attending this session will give you insights into monitoring strategies, introduce you to open-source tools, and reveal how Azure Monitor enhances visibility across the IBM Power ecosystem.
