ManageEngine Previews Citrix Xen Virtualization Support in Applications Manager, OpManager

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today will preview the Xen virtualization support in OpManager, its network performance management and data center monitoring software, and in Applications Manager, its application performance monitoring solution. The move lets application developers and IT operations teams in large enterprises monitor Citrix Xen hosts and virtual machines (VMs) for availability, performance and XenMotion activity. Live demonstrations of Xen support in Applications Manager and OpManager are available at http://demo.appmanager.com and http://xendemo.opmanager.com, respectively.

ManageEngine made today’s announcement at the Virtualization Technology Users Group (VTUG) Summer Slam 2013 being held today in Brunswick, Maine. A sponsor of the event, the company will demonstrate the forthcoming Xen features in Applications Manager and OpManager. In addition, ManageEngine’s Rakesh Inbaraj will lead a breakout session, “Application Visibility – A Recipe for Conducting Successful Virtualization Projects,” at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.

Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine, said, “Though initially adopted only by service providers and hosting providers, Citrix XenServer has emerged as a staple in small and medium enterprises in recent years. OpManager and Applications Manager already support VMware and Hyper-V servers, and adding XenServer monitoring support to the mix was the next logical step in our hypervisor coverage.”

ManageEngine Embraces Xen

ManageEngine provides virtualization management on three fronts. For application developers, Applications Manager delivers a holistic view of app performance, end-user experience and Apdex score along with the underlying XenServer health. Meanwhile, data center or enterprise IT infrastructure managers can monitor their network, server and virtualization components via OpManager. Finally, CIOs and data center managers will find an integrated view of the network, server and storage; application performance; and end-user experience levels by using OpManager and its Application Monitoring plug-in module.

Highlights of the Xen support in Applications Manager and OpManager include:

  • Automatic discovery of XenServer hosts and VMs via Xen API
  • Complete inventory and mapping of hosts, VMs as well as storage repositories and virtual disk images
  • Alerts delivered via email and SMS for Xen-related downtime and performance issues
  • Identifies XenMotion activity and updates inventory to reflect live migration of VMs as they move from host to host
  • Real-time map of Xen topology
