* PolyServe adds automated collection of performance stats to its Linux utility

PolyServe added the automated collection of performance statistics to it Linux file server clustering utility.

The company, which provides file server clustering software, enhanced its PolyServe File Serving Utility for Linux to include a performance dashboard tool for monitoring distributed file servers and network-attached storage appliances. The PolyServe File Serving Utility for Linux is enabled by the company’s shared data clustering software.

The performance dashboard tracks performance on individual servers and aggregates it across the cluster to provide data including I/O throughput, Network File System traffic and CPU and memory utilization.

Typically, managing performance of Linux servers has been an arduous process, PolyServe says. It has required knowledge of Linux scripting and hours of digging through log files. The performance dashboard collects this information automatically across multiple servers.

IT managers can collect this data using the dashboard and export it through the industry-standard XML.

This release of the PolyServe File Serving Utility for Linux also supports HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array snapshots. It also supports Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 4.

The PolyServe File Serving Utility For Linux Version 3.1.1 is available immediately starting at $6,000 per CPU.
