HP OpenView

Overview

HP OpenView Performance Manager is an agent-based centralized data collection solution.

OVPM stores collected statistics in files on the local file system for several months.

Axibase Collector queries the OVPM server for particular GLOBAL classes every 15 minutes to offload incremental data into the Axibase Time Series Database for long-term retention and operations analytics.
