OpenView Performance Agent (OVPA) for OpenVMS collects, summarizes, time stamps, and detects alarm conditions on resource data
across your system; this includes both current and historical data. OVPA provides performance, resource, and end-to-end transaction
response time measurements and supports network and database measurement information.
You can use data source integration (DSI) capabilities to integrate data collected outside OVPA. For example, you can use DSI to
bring in network, database, and your own application data, which is then treated the same as data that OVPA collects. All DSI data
is logged and time stamped; you can also use alarms on it. (For details, see the (HP OpenView Performance Agent Guide
for UNIX Data Source Integration Guide.)
To analyze all the data that OVPA collects or receives, you can use spreadsheet programs, Hewlett-Packard analysis tools such as
OpenView Performance Manager (OVPM), or third-party analysis products. OVPA gathers continuous information on system activity
without imposing significant overhead on the system. In addition, its design offers many opportunities for customization. You can
accept default configurations or set parameters to collect data for specific conditions.
