Tivoli software assesses Web site's performance

Two software packages from Tivoli Systems Inc. monitor Web site performance.

The $18,600 Web Services Manager gathers information about the integrity and availability of a Web site and its links, said Chuck Stern, vice president of the Austin, Texas, copmpany's Web solutions business unit.

A companion application, the $6,200 Web Services Analyzer, combines the performance data collected by Web Services Manager with information from the server log to evaluate transaction performance.

The Manager software has a 'site investigator' routine that crawls through the Web site to find broken links and validate individual pages' coding. It can also check to make sure each page has standard components, such as copyright symbols.

A synthetic transaction investigator simulates multipage transactions coming from outside, and a quality-of-service monitor records the total time it takes a visitor to perform a transaction.

Both programs run under SunSoft Solaris, Microsoft Windows NT or IBM AIX. Linux versions are coming soon, Stern said.
