Capacity and Performance
Many different IT teams have likely spent hours tuning your applications and their infrastructure to deliver on those performance expectations. Performance was tuned as part of releasing new code, when installing or upgrading infrastructure, and is optimized on an ongoing basis in production.
Unfortunately, configuration drift happens — undoing your well-tuned performance settings and causing issues that impact your business.
For example, perhaps new middleware components were installed on shared equipment without full awareness of the existing loads and peak usage periods of what was already running on the system. Perhaps a configuration change was applied across many systems for security reasons and it overwrote one or more of the settings you optimized for performance. Perhaps you made out of band changes manually in the heat of the moment to improve performance and those changes were later rolled back by an automation to “correct” the configuration.
How ITinvolve can help
- We leverage your existing sources of configuration information and model what is installed where, how it’s configured, and what the dependencies are
- As configurations change, we ensure everyone with a vested interest is automatically updated so capacity planners, systems engineers and administrators, as well as application owners, stay current in their understanding of the environment and can take action if necessary when a setting is updated that shouldn’t have been
- We help you easily document your performance tuning settings and ensure this information is taken into account as part of change planning, risk analysis, security updates, etc. and automations can be updated so they don’t modify settings that were purposively tuned
