We are very pleased to inform you that TrueSight Capacity Optimization 11.5 has been released and it is now available to you!

 

Key new features in TrueSight Capacity Optimization 11.5 include:

 

 

  • New Business Service view - With this version, you will easily get visibility into capacity of your business services and service pools. The new Business Service view is a set of executive views displaying business service health from a capacity perspective which brings service-aware capacity planning to both the Capacity Planners as well as Executives, Managers and most importantly, Service Owners. 
Together with the Business Service View we have introduced a new concept called the “Service Pool” which is a group of resources that form an infrastructure or technology layer (tier) within an application or a business service to enable you to execute capacity planning from a consumer perspective rather than the resource provider perspective. These service pools are the foundation of computation for Application/Service tiers and upon which these new views are built.

 

  • New Containerized Capacity Agent - You will be now able to quickly and easily install a capacity agent in a containerized environment. This addition brings a simplified deployment and management of capacity data collection in containerized workflows.
