Now that you successfully implemented your BMC Middleware Monitoring (BMM) solution and are generating alerts for problems detected in your WebSphere MQ (WMQ), DataPower, WebSphere Message Broker (WMB), TIBCO EMS, and WebLogic Application Server environments; you have successfully reduced the number of and duration of outages. Using the out-of-the-box integration with BMC ProactiveNet Performance Monitor (BPPM), the alerts are being directed to the correct teams and resolved in a timely manner. However, when you're logged onto the Management Console in BMM, it's not always easy to determine which alerts are for which area.
One of your friendly neighborhood BMC software consultants has come up with an easy way to tell by just looking. He suggests that you color code your alerts in the management console alerts screen. The choice of colors is up to you but one suggestion would be to use the blue for your WMQ alerts, green for your WMB alerts, wait for your DataPower alerts, and so forth. This method makes it easy to visually determine which alerts are for which group.
If you'd like to know more about implementing this solution, you can respond to this blog or simply e-mail your BMC software consultant.
