Legacy approaches to performance root cause analysis employ overly simplistic thresholding techniques and focus on reporting events associated with a single resource and single measurement, (e.g., CPU utilization exceeding a threshold) to identify a problem. In large virtualization environments these manual, error-prone approaches have limited meaning since they don’t account for the complex interactions between resources that drive most abnormal behavior. IT staff are inundated with alerts without guidance for prioritizing, interpreting or correcting them. Complex or subtle performance issues often go unnoticed amid the background noise.

Information without the Noise

SIOS iQ uses advanced machine learning analytics to obtain a deep understanding of the complex interactions and interrelated patterns of behavior of objects (CPU, storage, network, applications) in your VMware environment to automatically uncover abnormal performance behavior and instantaneously identify the root cause of the performance issue. This eliminates the noise of alert storms and false positives.

Get Insightful Analytics and Specific Recommendations for Problem Resolution

SIOS iQ dramatically simplifies the process of identifying the root causes of performance issues. It eliminates the work and complexity of finding complex root cause issues that used to require assembling logs and interpreting arrays of graphs and data from a variety of tools across storage, networking and application. Instead, IT can get an immediate answer to a performance problem through a single click of the SIOS PERC Dashboard™. SIOS iQ is the only IT analytics software that automatically provides specific, actionable  recommendations for resolving performance issues. SIOS iQ automatically warns you of a critical performance issue, lists all affected objects in the environment, defines the root cause of the performance issue, and recommends specific changes for improvement. The result: fast, accurate identification and resolution of performance issues, improved service to end users, and significant time savings for IT staff.
