Huaxia Bank Jinan Branch, Shandong Province's new commercial services bank, has selected Unicenter from Computer Associates as the management platform for its network, systems and databases.
Unicenter Network and Systems Management (NSM) product is being used by Jinan Branch's IT administrators to monitor the bank's distributed computing environment through centralised, 2-D and 3-D visualisation screens. When a network or performance problem occurs, Unicenter NSM displays the problem graphically, indicating its impact on the bank's business processes.
The bank is also deploying Unicenter Performance Management, for automated, real-time monitoring of the computing environment's performance. It supports RMON protocol network devices and peripherals, and generates reports with historical logs and dynamic graphic charts of status and usage data. In addition, Huaxia Bank Jinan Branch is implementing Unicenter Advanced Network Operations to monitor network health and issue appropriate alerts when network problems or performance bottlenecks occur.
Unicenter Database Management - which monitors and diagnoses database objects, SQL statements, users, processes, and devices - is also being deployed to ensure the stability of critical services at the bank.
