Customizable Monitoring and Alerting

Flexible and reliable monitoring and alerting are integral parts of any workload automation solution. When a critical process fails or another issue arises that has the potential to impact business, that’s when dependable monitoring capabilities, automated remediation, and timely alerting are critical to ensuring the issue is noticed and addressed quickly. ActiveBatch provides highly customizable monitoring and alerting capabilities to help organizations improve workload execution and reduce the risk of breached service level agreements (SLAs). 

Prevent Job Failures and Delays with Proactive Monitoring and Alerts

ActiveBatch proactively monitors workflow progress and, based on an organization’s needs, takes the appropriate automated steps if that workflow overruns, underruns, displays exit codes, fails, succeeds, or is in danger of breaching (or breaches) a service level agreement (SLA), plus more.

ActiveBatch also supports dozens of different alert types and alert objects that notify the appropriate parties or systems when a specified condition has been raised within a workflow. Each alert is deliverable in a variety of ways including email, JMS, Microsoft Message Queues, SMS text, Twitter, SNMP, Skype, and more.

ActiveBatch Alert Objects simplify the management of alerts by allowing multiple alerts to be contained within a single object. The alert object can then be associated to multiple workflows. Conveniently, any modification to the alert object will automatically update the associated workflows, simplifying maintenance for IT operations. There is no limit to the number of alerts a workflow can have.

Additionally, users can trigger workflows based on alert conditions for seamless automated remediation. Workflows take different branches based on the condition raised. ActiveBatch also supports custom messages and subjects for alerts using ActiveBatch Variables.

Reduce the Risk of SLA Breaches with Powerful Monitoring Capabilities

In addition to specific IT-related events, ActiveBatch supports the monitoring and alerting of workflows with completion tied to SLAs or business policies. Users can set warning and critical thresholds (based on absolute and relative deadlines) and establish customized alert notifications and automated remediation actions for an impending SLA breach.

Multiple Developer and Operations Views 

ActiveBatch provides multiple views for both developers and operations so users can target and analyze data based on functional areas. 

Machine Load View provides a visual heat map with refined performance counter graphs so users can easily identify system usage and rearrange resources based on workload needs.

Forecast and Gantt Views

Forecast View shows the critical path of workflows, along with their dependencies, to help predict the optimal run times of workflow.

Gantt View graphically displays all job and plan relationships as well as their executions by time, giving users a comprehensive and easy-to-understand view of all of the executing, executed, and soon to execute workflows in their environment.

SLA Monitoring 

View SLA workflows and proactively prevent breaches. Manage expectations by facilitating communication regarding the execution and timely completion of critical workflows. IT operations can automate and manage both simple and complex workflows to ensure the fulfillment of the SLA in real time.

Template Reporting

Gain an in-depth, transparent view into job templates and ActiveBatch Objects with template reporting. By leveraging the power and flexibility of SQL queries, these highly customizable reports enable users to analyze all objects and properties within ActiveBatch. Query results can then be uploaded to any business intelligence or reporting tool, providing users flexibility to view and manage the analytics as they see fit. Because template reporting uses a separate reporting database, there is no impact on performance in production environments.

ActiveBatch Mobile Ops App (iOS and Android)

The ActiveBatch Mobile Ops app is designed to give ActiveBatch operators the agility to securely manage and monitor unexpected incidents as they happen. Mobile Ops features secure, 24/7 access to critical components of users' ActiveBatch systems —from anywhere. Push notifications provide direct links to issues within ActiveBatch where users can act on those issues before they impact business. A built-in device approval system gives ActiveBatch administrators full control from within the ActiveBatch Console (or the ActiveBatch Web Console) which devices can connect to through the app, and can enable multi-factor authentication to protect against unauthorized access for all devices running Mobile Ops.
