Description: CA Systems Performance for Infrastructure Managers (SPIM) is an add-on module to the CA Technologies Service Assurance Infrastructure Management product. This module provides systems monitoring for fault and performance management of physical systems and applications for Windows, UNIX and Linux platforms.

Broadcom has now acquired CA technologies.

This Infrastructure Manager (IM) module detects and forwards system and application faults to Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) based managers on multiple platforms and across several technologies. In conjunction with IM, this module allows centralized monitoring of systems, networks, databases, and applications across physical environments to provide status, performance, availability, and configuration information. Product can monitor any Unicode Transformation Format 8 (UTF-8) encoded system or application log file by searching for strings specified as regular expressions including Windows event logs. Product can also monitor any single process or system service and is capable of operating in Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 140-2) mode.
