The SLO Management Console provides an integrated view of all SLOs. SLO views complement existing infrastructure-centric application management solutions. SLO business views help define, measure, and track SLOs. With new business views, business structures are available in a top-down hierarchical view that delivers near real-time service level views of application and service metrics. This view provides valuable information about performance status from an end users' perspective for each business unit and SLO compliance.
SLO views also represent application performance levels and service levels committed to within the organization. The views represent application performance metrics in a way that relates the IT and line of business teams as a close working unit on which the company depends.
Predefined and custom-defined indicators (SLO types, grouping of required attributes and metrics) present a relational view of objectives and the actual status of SLO compliance. Service level view enables you to take a proactive approach to meeting SLOs. Seamless integration with Violation Summary and Probable Cause Analysis within SLO views help extend the IT capability to troubleshoot and pinpoint issues quickly as SLO violations occur.
BMC ProactiveNet computes SLO compliance at the end of each day. For example, computation of compliance for September 8, 2013 is available only on September 9, 2013. For more information, see To recalculate an SLO.
