When dealing with the massive amounts of data associated with log collection and analysis, a major consideration is the resulting overhead on the infrastructure. Whether it’s a business application or an infrastructure tool, big data taxes the infrastructure. With any tool, an organization may consider dedicating resources to log collection and analysis. Virtual Instruments takes this design approach by providing an appliance to perform data analysis.
Virtual Instruments provides the appliances needed to collect the data and its software analysis tool VirtualWisdom to visualize the data. Virtual Instruments relies on data from network, storage taps, and server probes to monitor performance. Virtual Instruments leverages anonymized data from existing client data to help provide accelerators in the form of canned reports.. These accelerators could be used to reduce the time required to garner useful information from machine performance data.
