MIDAS Inventory

Catalog and Compare IT Environments

Highlights

  • Integrated: IT monitoring is improved by the comparison of system and device information with the help of HPOM configurations.
  • Up-to-date: Reduce risks by quickly identifying changes to the environment and updating backends.
  • Editor: Modify and distribute information in your environment to have the latest status available.
  • Reporting: Monitor individual systems for detailed information to ensure auditing requirements.

IT Enviroment Information

Servers, devices, IP addresses, applications, file systems… the list goes on endlessly. A lot of information is required to develop an accurate monitoring configuration. Whether you are developing policies, adding or deleting nodes, assigning policies to nodes or node groups or troubleshooting – an overview of your IT environment is important.

MIDAS Inventory provides you with all the information of your current IT environment. It gives you immediate access to detailed system information and helps you improve the quality of your monitoring. There are two separate ways to access the information: operational and administrative.

Operational GUI

The operational GUI is HTML-based and closely integrated with MIDAS Configurator. This interface provides read-only access. User views are based on the extensive MIDAS user role model making it easily available to various user groups within the enterprise. Users can access information from the HPOM node object or they can access a list of all systems within the inventory catalog. Nodes or modifications made on the node object can easily be added to HPOM. The integration into the HPOM Java GUI allows users to access detailed system information directly from a message.

 

Administrative GUI

The administrative GUI of MIDAS Inventory is a native Windows application, providing a rich set of operational and administrative functionalities. These include custom reporting and exporting reports to Excel.

Immediately Ready to Use

Data is collected from the systems in an agentless manner (using standard access mechanisms like SSH, SNMP and WMI) thereby avoiding the necessity of any additional software. This enables MIDAS Inventory to be easily deployed in a large environment without a massive roll-out project. It reduces ongoing administrative effort.

Methods and credentials to access systems can be defined with a flexible grouping concept tailored to the structure of your enterprise. An access analysis enables you to quickly and easily pin-point any communication problems on individual systems. Flexible scheduling allows you to define the frequency at which systems are (re-)cataloged.
