Real-time monitoring across your Power Systems servers
Comprehensive Performance Monitoring
Robot Monitor is the most comprehensive, in-depth monitoring solution available for Power Systems environments running IBM i alone or alongside VIOS, AIX, or Linux on Power. Industry-leading technology gives you the highest degree of monitoring for your critical IT infrastructure.
By monitoring the performance of your Power servers in real time—including system status, disk, network, availability, application data, and JDBC/ODBC activity—you and your team can proactively respond to issues before they impact user productivity or resources.
Highly customizable, modern dashboards provide visibility into all your metrics, elements, and status conditions so you don’t miss a thing. See all your data from a single, central interface to avoid downtime and optimize performance. Not watching the dashboard? Robot Monitor can send out notification when things go wrong.
Key Application and Performance Monitoring Features
Supported Platforms: IBM i; AIX on Power; Linux on Power; VIOS
Get centralized visibility and control of your IBM i environment from a single graphical interface. Display any combination of system metrics, status conditions, and workloads. Customize your view to display what’s important to your unique needs.
Empower your team with individually tailored views displaying the specific metrics each technician must monitor. Combine views across multiple systems in your network so NOC managers can get the bigger picture—even integrate exceptions into a single list and prioritize using red/yellow/green color-coding.
If your temporary storage or disk is escalating, reduce the time it takes to pinpoint the root cause. Instantly drill down to show all the jobs consuming CPU, temporary storage, QTEMP, I/O, transactions, faulting rates, and other metrics, for faster problem resolution.
Drill down to see the top consumers of CPU and disk I/O on the system, work with the job (e.g., change, hold, release, or end), and even see the exact SQL statement that is causing the spike to occur—especially important for QZDASOINIT JDBC/ODBC jobs.
Keep an eye on key metrics that indicate the health of your Virtual I/O Server (VIOS)—including physical adapter status, throughput, processor, disk, memory, and the error log (errpt)—so you can more easily identify strain points and reallocate or add resources before bottlenecks degrade system and application performance.
SQL-based monitoring technology provides a near-unlimited selection of monitoring options, giving you the insight you need into business application data, such as the number of open problems, customer orders, or stock replenishment figures.
Regular reporting is part of your job, but it doesn’t have to be tedious. Make reporting a simple, automated task with graphical reports that are easy for non-technical colleagues to interpret. Share reports via email to a list of defined recipients or to a server.
Start off on the right foot with your new software. Take advantage of our Getting Started services package, which includes approximately 8 hours of pre-installation planning, product installation, initial implementation, and basic training services. Learn more >
The proactive results and efficiency we were able to achieve, even in the evaluation period, convinced us to buy this software—we can see every day that this was a good idea.
Lutz Piller, Head of IT, PRETTL Electronics
Last year we had to decide whether to take the risk of upgrading an application on a particular machine which was running a little bit tight, so we used the data from Robot Monitor to judge if there was enough space available.

I've been extremely happy with Robot Monitor, so please pass my thanks on to that team. With it, we have been able to completely automate our on-call processing and we now use a telephony service to auto-telephone the appropriate support group and use a synthetic voice message service to read a message to them about a job in error, etc. With that automation, we reduced operational costs by $200,000 per year.
