TIBCO Operational Intelligence Hawk® (Formerly TIBCO Hawk®) and TIBCO Operational Intelligence Hawk® RedTail provide the industry's best, sophisticated tool for monitoring and managing distributed applications and systems throughout the enterprise. With Hawk, system administrators can monitor application parameters, behavior, and loading activities for all nodes in a local or wide-area network and take action when pre-defined conditions occur. In many cases, runtime failures or slowdowns can be repaired automatically within seconds of their discovery, reducing unscheduled outages and slowdowns of critical business systems.


 

TIBCO® ​ Operational Intelligence Hawk®  is a sophisticated tool for system administrators to:

  • Monitoring and managing distributed applications and systems throughout the enterprise.
  • Monitor application parameters, behavior, and loading activities for all nodes in a local or wide-area network and take action when predefined conditions occur.
  • Automatically repair runtime failures or slowdowns within seconds of their discovery, ​thereby ​reducing unscheduled outages and slowdowns of critical business systems

TIBCO® OI Hawk® RedTail is built on TIBCO® OI Hawk® and offers the same core functionality, plus additional advanced monitoring capabilities as follows:

  • Collect and Store Metrics: Collect metrics from various Hawk microagents and external metric sources, and store them in the time-series database.
  • Customizable Dashboards: visualize the time-series metrics and also configure multiple queries within them.
  • Unified Query Language: Operational Intelligence Query Language to query the stored time-series metrics in the form of Data Models.
  • Tag-based Rulebases: creating high-level Rulebases with Tags that can match microagents, so that the Rulebases can be automatically deployed to all the
  • microagents.
  • Content Pack: A curated collection of monitoring and visualization resources - out of the box product or environment-specific view.
  • Integration with TIBCO LogLogic® Log Management Intelligence: capabilities to forwarding and searching log data remotely.

You can enable the advanced monitoring capabilities in TIBCO OI Hawk RedTail with the “TIBCO® Operational Intelligence Hawk® RedTail - Standard Edition License
