Server/VM-level measurements notify the capacity/performance analyst of resource usage patterns during (1) capacity threshold breaches (2) SLA breaches (3) other significant changes, but not how/why these occurred.

Inside guest measurements of the individual processes running on the server are the implementation of everything from the operating system, tools, utilities, and application(s).

How can these be aggregated into specific categories to better understand the overall behavior of the server?

This session will present a categorization methodology for server process measurements along with several case studies (AIX, Linux and Windows VMs).  Additionally, attendees will take away practical recommendations for effective (time spent and results gained) implementation.
