TeamQuest monitors all aspects of servers and the software running on them. Complex thresholds can be set on any server metrics of interest, raising alarms when problems occur or are likely to occur. One of TeamQuest's available actions is to send an SNMP trap event to a Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC).
The TEC is a very powerful event management platform and thus provides an excellent tool for monitoring TeamQuest alarms along with the multitude of other events it receives. And you can launch TeamQuest IT Service Analyzer directly from the TEC to do in-depth problem investigation on a troubled system when the need arises. By pairing TeamQuest's detailed application monitoring, problem investigation, performance analysis, and capacity planning capabilities with Tivoli's solutions, you get broad systems management and performance capabilities from Tivoli and highly focused and powerful performance management from TeamQuest.
