Full Stack Visibility

Most configuration management systems are tightly focused on either the operating environment, supporting infrastructure, or application specific configurations making it difficult if not impossible to keep track of your entire application ecosystem.

Verify The Environment

In addition to extensive middleware and database support out of the box, Orca fills in the blanks with broad support for validating and monitoring the configuration of the underlying operating systems that are critical to your application.

Expose The Gremlins

Misalignments in the operating system’s tunable configurations like processor and memory management, networking, security and more can cause catastrophic application failures or even worse, intermittent and difficult to find application issues. Installed software versions, potentially the most critical foundation for any application, are monitored and easily reviewed in the Orca Console.

The list below is an example of the breadth of support for operating systems configurations and as always, your existing scripts and tools are “drop & go” in Orca so you can bring your existing investment in configuration monitoring tools to Orca quickly and incorporate them seamlessly.
