  1. Tivoli Event Management Overview & Directions Tivoli North Central User Group Meeting Kevin Myers, 02 April 2008

  2. Statement Of Direction And Intent • All statements of direction or intent are provided for planning purposes only and are subject to change or withdrawal without notice • This presentation represents our current goals and objectives • We are listening to customers’ views on the future directions of our solutions

  3. Agenda • Event Management Strategic Direction • OMNIbus Overview • Event Management Evolution & Directions • Upgrade methodology

  4. Event Management – Strategic Direction • OMNIbus and TEC will converge to a single, strategic converged Event Management product between now and 1H2009 • Industry leading solution for event management of any type or size of infrastructure • Integrate the positive qualities of both systems, preserving customers investments in deployed assets • There is existing integration between the two products today • Our Converged Event Manager will be based on the OMNIbus architecture and will include features provided with TEC • We encourage all customers to eventually upgrade to the converged event management platform: • You can upgrade on your timeline. • TEC/OMNIbus co-existence and interoperation between will be provided while convergence is delivered • Tivoli is putting in place recommendations and capabilities to enable you to control this upgrade, and execute in smooth, non-disruptive steps. • For customers wishing to remain with TEC, we will continue to support TEC 3.9 functionality and provide platform currency and support at minimum through April 2012

  5. OMNIbus Advantages over TEC • ObjectServer is optimized for speed and is highly scalable • OMNIbus uses ANSI SQL and regular expression (like Perl) correlation languages - PROLOG skills no longer needed • Compliant with FDCC standards and delivering FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria (EAL-2) compliance in 2008. Evaluation underway for EAL-4+. • Out of the box failover capabilities for the ObjectServer, Gateways and probes • Deduplication out of the box – no more dup_detect rules • Manager of Managers – Integration with almost every device and monitoring product (250+) • Less overall costs to maintain ObjectServer once configured • Out-of-the-box ready to run rules with best practices • Very flexible and intuitive

  6. Key Assumptions Guiding Unification • OMNIbus is the base for the convergence of the event infrastructure for entire Tivoli product portfolio and will be focus of future integration work • TIP (Tivoli Integrated Portal) is the common and strategic console for operations and policy management for Tivoli’s product portfolio (evolution of the integrations in ITM TEP) • WebTop as the event management console of choice • Movement towards an integrated, contextual control of multiple event types • Tivoli Monitoring (TEMA/TEMS/TEPS) is the strategic monitoring platform for Tivoli’s product portfolio and the base for Tivoli’s product portfolio self-management capabilities • ITM v6 agents and Netcool SSM/ASM agents are converging to provide a single and richer agent infrastructure with combined assets. In the converged agent infrastructure: • Configuration and monitoring data flow to TEP/TIP through ITM server • Optionally agents will be able to send events to OMNIbus and/or TEC using: • SNMP traps • EIF interface

  7. OMNIbus Summary – Event Management in “Real-Time” • Depth And Breadth Of Event Coverage And Correlation • Collection - Thousands of event sources – Generic and Vendor-specific • Consolidation/Normalization - Common and customizable event format • Event Reduction • “Deduplication” • Correlation (Internal to OMNIbus and Parallel with other Tivoli components) • Tool Integration • Archive, reporting, other Tivoli components, and 3rd party products • Workflow integration via Trouble Ticket tie-in (bi-directional) • Ease Of Use And Deployment • Rapid Deployment • High productivity – easy of use • Interactive Desktop views • Reduce operator knowledge requirements • Context-sensitive tools • Automations (notification) • In-line direction and actions for operators (tools/resolutions) • High Availability And Scale • High-availability and resiliency features (DB transactions, synchronization of events) • Multi-tiered architectures for scale The broad event coverage provided by OMNIbus positions us as the premier solution in the marketplace

  11. ” Efficiency and Effectiveness • Manage more with the same staffing levels • Reduce ‘truck rolls’ through automated diagnostics • Reduced training costs through standardisation of monitoring platform Peter Hascher, BT Global Services

  12. OMNIbus References EDS - "OMNIbus 7.2 continues to enhance one of the most robust event management platforms in the industry. I don’t need many of the new features, but I need the speed, flexibility, and scalability of the OMNIbus Object Server to deliver services to my customers.“ IBM displaced HP's OpenView Network Node Manager at Integra Telecom, a Portland, Ore., telco that services the western United States. Integra Telecom, following it's acquisition of Electric Lightwave, found itself with both HP's OpenView and IBM's Netcool. In the evaluation it undertook to centralize on one fault and event management system, Integra found that "IBM had additional functionality that HP didn't have and it was at a lower cost than HP OpenView," said Integra CIO Julie Rouzee. "I believe [HP is] a little behind on being competitive. They had a product we were interested in, but it was not available in the market [when Integra Telecom did its evaluation]," she said.

  15. Event Processing Unification: Concepts Our research indicates that most correlation rules fall into five categories: • Suppression, e.g. de-duplication, filter out, thresholding • Summarization, e.g. sequence and set, incomplete sequence and set • Modification, e.g. change status, set attribute value, link cause and effect • Automation, e.g. local and remote task execution • Forwarding, e.g. event routing Remaining rules fall into more specialized activities • Advanced scripting • Event enrichment through lookup tables or fact files • … Best practices from customers and technicians that have architected and completed upgrade to OMNIbus: • Goals based review of current correlation rules key • One-for-one rules migration may diminish potential value OMNIbus provides over TEC

  16. TEC  OMNIbus Upgrade Scenario - General • Stand-alone TEC environment • TEC consoles native or in TEP • TEC Server does the correlation • OMNIbus is installed • Event metadata definitions are created in using tools delivered in OMNIbus 7.2 (Nov ’07) • Rules are converted to triggers where not available out-of-the-box (manual process using Redbook and white papers) Phase 1 Phase 0 OMNIbus Service Desk(s) Service Desk(s) Rules Event Sync metadata Upgrade TEC TEC Rules Rules • Customer is free to move event sources, operator consoles and rules processing in whatever order they prefer • Service desk integration to OMNIbus created via appropriate gateway • Operator consoles in TIP • All event sources flow to OMNIbus and may be replaced with appropriate native probe • All Systems Management rules processing done in Netcool • TEC server retired Phase 3 Phase 3 Phase 2 OMNIbus OMNIbus Service Desk(s) Service Desk(s) EIF EIF Event Sync TEC

  17. TEC to OMNIbus Upgrade Methodology • Three Main Patterns seen to-date • Deploy OMNIbus into TEC environment • Move event sources and event processing to OMNIbus over time • Continue to leverage TEC Prolog investment via integration for necessary event classes in rare cases if necessary • Allows flexibility over time for event processing system of choice as ‘manager of managers’ • Create parallel OMNIbus environment • Implement event processing and reconfigure event sources application by application • Allows potential for ‘fresh start’ architecture leveraging all advantages of OMNIbus over TEC • Deployment of TBSM 4.1 and leveraging OMNIbus architecture over time • OMNIbus is underlying event engine with TBSM 4.1 • TEC can initially feed TBSM, but event sources and processing can be converted in ‘Phase 2’ to directly feed OMNIbus • Minimal architectural considerations for use of OMNIbus for enterprise event management in this scenario • IBM Redbook Best Practices for IBM Tivoli Enterprise Console to NetCool/OMNIbus Upgrade available in 2Q08

  26. OMNIbus Health and Performance Agent

  27. Out-of-the-box FailoverImproved configuration for high-availability systems • Replace existing external script using nco_ping/nco_sql • Two new signals that will be raised by gateway: • gw_counterpart_down: When the gateway detects that the primary ObjectServer is unavailable, it will raise a gateway counterpart down signal in the backup ObjectServer. • gw_counterpart_up : When the primary ObjectServer becomes available again the gateway will raise gateway counterpart up signal in the Backup ObjectServer. • Example signal triggers to enable/disable selected automations on backup ObjectServer

  28. Class hierarchy support for TEC transition • TEC supports representing events as a class hierarchy whereas the ObjectServer stores and processes events in a ‘flat’ normalized representation. • The ObjectServer will provide support for processing events with regard to their position in the event hierarchy and to allow information in extended slots [columns] to be processed. • Retain performance advantage of ObjectServer structure • probe rules file functions to build the extended attribute information into a single attribute field • ObjectServer will support processing an event with regard to the events location in the class hierarchy. (e.g. “instance of” sql) • ObjectServer will read and write field values stored in extended attribute slots • Baroc2sql Class hierarchy extraction script
