How Enterprise Manager helps with PeopleSoft management.
1. The Enterprise Manager AMS Suite for PeopleSoft shows a topology of all PeopleSoft components, including the PS App Server, PS Web Server, PS Process Scheduler, PS App Database and so on. All these components are monitored as per warning and critical thresholds and alerts will be raised if thresholds are crossed. The Topology view uses Root Cause Analysis to test each component and highlight in red the component that has failed. For example, a PeopleSoft system can be down just because a small component like the listener is down, which prevents connection to the database. Root Cause Analysis pinpoints the failed listener and the DBAs can fix quickly. You are back in business, faster. 2. PeopleSoft Domain Administration can be centralized, with the ability to create and configure domains, and PeopleSoft Process Scheduler Management can be performed through Enterprise Manager. The PeopleSoft Admin can centrally access all logs on all servers to aid in trouble shooting, and can centrally purge or archive logs. All this reduces admin time and makes the PeopleSoft Admin have improved productivity. 3. Configuration of various PeopleSoft components can be compared to vastly aid in trouble-shooting and there is an audit-trail of all changes to PeopleSoft systems, which allows you to enforce configuration and security compliance. There is change tracking of PeopleSoft System Parameters so more security.
4. Real user monitoring of the PeopleSoft application can be performed to pinpoint the slowest pages or modules and the real life experience of the users can be understood. This reduces the problem resolution time of the issues reported by end users. More user satisfaction.
In one of the chapters in my upcoming book, I have explained these benefits of the Enterprise Manager Application Management Suite in detail - not just for PeopleSoft, but also for E-Business, Siebel and Fusion Applications. There is also a chapter on Real User Experience Insight. Please see the link for the detailed chapter of contents.
