CNET reports IBM has released new data center software designed to automatically spot and fix performance problems.
The new programs, which IBM announced Thursday, are from the company's Tivoli unit, which specializes in software for monitoring business system performance and availability.
One of the new programs, IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.1, is an update to a previous product. The new version will tap additional servers when a key system, such as e-mail or online bill payment, becomes overloaded.
A new product, IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager, also finds and repairs network bottlenecks, with a focus on problems in systems composed of numerous, interconnected applications linked over the Web.
