SolarWinds unveils next generation of IT troubleshooting

The PerfStack dashboard, the latest innovation from the global market leader in network management software, enables IT administrators to identify, isolate, and troubleshoot performance problems in ways never before possible.

SolarWinds has unveiled its PerfStackdashboard, an entirely new way of visualising and correlating IT monitoring data to improve troubleshooting of performance issues across the IT environment, from infrastructure to applications. A significant update to the SolarWinds® Orion® platform, PerfStack is a new, highly customisable yet simple-to-build dashboard. It allows IT administrators to selectively drag and drop critical real-time and historical metrics from SolarWinds Orion platform-based products into a single pane to visualise the relationship between suspect elements. This innovative visualisation enables them to identify, isolate, and troubleshoot performance problems in ways never before possible.
 
“With hybrid IT, software-defined networking, hyperconvergence, and any number of other disruptive trends impacting today’s IT environments, complex, multi-faceted performance issues that often transcend functional silos are more common than ever,” said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president, products, SolarWinds. “In turn, troubleshooting to resolve these problems is growing increasingly difficult. Enter PerfStack. We’re excited to show Cisco Live attendees how PerfStack, along with our complete portfolio of market-leading products, can help them break down the walls between functional roles, eliminate finger pointing, and solve performance problems faster. It is the next generation of IT troubleshooting.”
 
PerfStack: The Next Generation of IT Troubleshooting
 
The PerfStack dashboard empowers IT administrators to simply yet dynamically combine time series and relationship data from many different sources—such as a switch, router, virtual machine, host, application, LUN, storage array, or web transaction—into a single custom pane. This includes disparate data. For example, PerfStack enables administrators to combine network latency and bandwidth data from SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor with LUN IOPS data from SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor into a single chart to troubleshoot iSCSI performance issues.
 
With the PerfStack dashboard, administrators are also able to better collaborate with others by easily sharing the custom PerfStack charts they have created. This powerful feature helps break down the functional silos within their IT organisations and solve performance problems faster.

On Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 1:40 p.m. GMT+1, Patrick Hubbard, Head Geek, SolarWinds, will present, “The Key to Network Management in a Hybrid IT World,” as part of the Cisco Live EMEA 2017 Partner Theater. During the talk, Hubbard will discuss the benefit of tools such as PerfStack, among others, in solving the challenges of modern network management. Specifically, Hubbard will address the following:
 
“As applications become increasingly distributed in hybrid IT environments, IT and DevOps professionals face the challenge of ensuring performance regardless of deployment topology. Moreover, applications are rapidly evolving and the network behaviours of yesterday don’t accurately forecast the traffic patterns for tomorrow. IT management software must give additional visibility into the entirety of hybrid IT deployments to deliver optimal experience for end-users. New tools based on automated context mapping now allow administrators to make optimal decisions to changing physical or virtual network flows faster than ever before. Real-time, end-to-end maps, continuous analysis, automated context discovery, and composite metric views are finally beginning to address the challenge of Hybrid IT.”
