IBM buys into network management - Network IT Week

IBM buys into network management - Network IT Week

The acquistion of Micromuse by IBM will probably see Micromuse being saved and also extending IBM's Tivoli managanent system by incorporating NetCool, Micromuse's product.

NetCool is quite sophisticated in that it has active agents which can not just detect whether a server is there or not, but how the applications running on it are performing i.e. say how a web server is performing.

As the world moves to converged networks, being able to monitor how the networks and services are performing is going to be very important rather than in today's world were you know if the network is working or not.
