An answer to infrastructure questions

Do we buy more memory? When do we buy it? How long can we keep this resource at a high-utilization state? Usually all these questions are solved by heavy assumptions that can lead us to be on the safe-side, over-provisioning and trying to keep all our infrastructure components under the thresholds which we consider risky. Capacity Management exists to stop that.

What is "Capacity Management" in IT?

The main objective of Capacity Management is to "avoid waste".

This blog looks at leveraging security and control features, encrypted communications between Geneos components and Authentication policy, in conjunction with the Geneos Commands API. Given the power of Geneos commands, and the functionality they enable, locking down access to them is quite important.

The Geneos Gateway has a REST API which allows programmatic, automatic triggering of Geneos commands, which take remediating action in the monitoring environment. This API allows for some nice integrations and automation.

This blog is a compendium of common errors and snags one might run into working with this Command REST Service, as well as some getting started tips. Further I walk through avoiding and handling each of these common pitfalls.
