It's well known that improved application and load management can have dramatic effects on network performance. However, most management systems are tailored to specific operating environments.
Librato Inc. says it has overcome that problem with its new Load Manager 2.0 software, which the company has broadened from a Linux-only package to include Windows Server 2003 and 2008.
The system allows operators to oversee all server resources, including CPU, memory and network and storage I/O, and provides a policy-based scheduler that enables dynamic rebalancing to tailor resources to application loads. The system also has the ability to track resource consumption over time and to project how much an application would have used without allocation limits, providing operators with another window for capacity planning requirements.
The system is expected to ship in December.
