IT Composite Application Monitoring (aka ITCAM) Version 7.3 went GA in May. ITCAM is one of the most interesting and powerful tools in the Tivoli suite of solutions. ITCAM provides end-to-end transaction tracking and end user experience monitoring capabilities. ITCAM also provides capabilities for robotic monitoring and Internet service monitoring. By using ITCAM you can visualize and more easily isolate problems, leading to faster problem resolution. ITCAM is a very big solution, with quite a bit of technology and capability bundled into it. There are many ways you can apply this technology to monitor and track transaction activity.
ITCAM V7.3 adds new capabilities including:
Agentless tracking that provides improvements in time-to-value
Integrated view of agent based and agentless data through a single user interface on a single topology view
Scalable monitoring roll outs that leads to improvement in consumability
Enhanced transaction tracking that provides support for multiple domains including Microsoft (.Net), Distributed (Websphere, J2EE, etc.), and Mainframe
