Why Read This Report

As server hardware becomes an increasingly commoditized and standardized element of a data center environment, the need for comprehensive management agents for performance monitoring seems to stagnate — as witnessed by a relatively lackluster market growth rate. However, Forrester believes that the need to monitor servers is still there, but that product architecture and technology, as well as what you need to monitor and optimize, is changing. Successful products in this market have to be simple, easy on resource consumption, and able to manage the new virtualized environment.
