Hi,

When you look for comparison, there are many factors you may consider I will start with the below factors:

 

1- Agent Type (data source)

2- Collection method(s)

3- Data storing, Summarizing.

4- Report Access and functionality

5- Customization options.

 

HP Reporter.

(1) It only System Resource data collected by Either EPC (coda) or OVPA

(2) Data is collected for defferent metrics (based on the installed reports) from the agent daily at mid-night (customizable option)

(3) Data is stored as row in Reporter Database.

(4) Reports are generated daily at 2:00 am and stored in HTML web pages, users can access this offline generated copy.

(5) Reports are provided with SPI as is, for modification and customization it requires Crystal Report application (seperate license required, I consider it complacated compaire to OVPI Report Builder)

 

I will continue tomorrow comparing the remaing applications.

    Hi again,

     

    HP Performance Manager.

    (1) Data collection only happens when user request graph plotting.

    (2) Data is collected from Data source stored in hosted by either EPC (coda) or OVPA

    (3) No data storing.

    (4) Graphs are accessable by HP PM web console.

    (5) Graphs can be created or customized by PM web console.

     

    HP Performance Insight

    (1) Data can be collected from diffrent sources (text file, SNMP, EPC/OVPA or database)

    (2) Polling policies and schedule tasks maintained by each Report Pack (customizable also)

    (3) Data is store in a dedicate database (Sybase or Oracle), full summarization options availble (Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly and Yearly).

    (4) PI reports are always contain the latest data stored and summarized on the PI databases.

    Reports are accessable by (Installable app) GUI, or Web Interface

    (5) Data collection and Reports are highly customizable

     

    I have tried to summarize it into points, I hope it will be useful.
