Key concepts

PATROL for Solaris provides monitoring of your Solaris hosts, enabling you to determine the health of your Solaris hosts. It provides current and historical information through a centralized console so you can easily view and manage your entire Solaris environments. You can drill down to view detailed system metrics for all parts of your environment. PATROL also can take corrective action when things go wrong or are about to go wrong preventing downtime and its cost to your business. 

PATROL for Solaris key capabilities

  1. The KM monitors a complete range of Solaris operating system parameters. Some of the entities are listed here. For a complete list of attributes, see Monitor types and attributes.
    • System-wide and per instance CPU monitoring
    • Disk performance monitoring
    • Filesystem resources
    • Kernel resource usage
    • Network performance monitoring
    • Memory utilization and performance
    • Swap space monitoring 
    • System-wide processes and individual process monitoring
    • User sessions 
    • Solaris services
    • NFS protocol
    • Virtualization monitoring (resource pools, zones, and project statistics)
    • Zpool monitoring
  2. The KM allows you to monitor the Oracle Virtual Machine Manager (OVMM). It collects performance statistics of the Repositories, Oracle VM Servers, and VMs. 
  3. The KM allows you to monitor your Solaris hosts remotely. With standard monitor types, remote monitoring can scale up to 500 hosts. For more information, see Scalability and best practices
  4. The KM allows you to remotely monitor your Solaris hosts from a PATROL Agent running on Microsoft Windows or Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system.
  5. The KM allows you to apply filters while configuring processes, file systems, disks, zones, logical domains, services, and Zpools.
