It's what you don't see that may be the most significant


In many of my prior posts and webcasts I talk about things like the vaule of the Tivoli Portal, the value of the ability customize and craft views using the TEP, and the importance of meaningful and useful situation alerts.

Aside from the fact I find this picture amusing, it also illustrates a key point when we are talking about systems performance and availability management. Sometimes it's what you don't see that may be the biggest challenge. Monitoring technologies, like OMEGAMON and the TEP, provide the user with a massive amount of information. Often the challenge is how to filter through the flood of data to find what is most critical.
