LeaderTM (software used under license) is an accurate modeling module for capacity planning and performance management. PALLAS uses it as a “standalone” tool for its professional services practice. The following table summarizes some of the key features and benefits offered by LeaderTM virtualization modeling kernel.
|Modeling Scope||Can model arbitrary complexes of CPUs and Disk Farms in any topology||Accurately represent customer specific IT infrastructure|
|System Details||Specific OS algorithms like memory management and data flows can be specified||Provides flexibility to represent environments with heterogeneous OS, servers and applications|
|Results||Provides projections for industry standard capacity planning and performance metrics for planning and “what if” scenario analysis||Significant $$ savings through optimal deployment configurations, scalability analysis and accurate performance tuning to meet business needs|
|Monitoring Data||Can read data from most standard monitoring systems including text files||Easy to integrate with existing monitoring systems – No need to get “new” monitoring agents|
|System Environment||Mainframe (z/OS)||System specific accurate modeling capability|
