The 
CA eHealth
 and 
CA Spectrum
 integration helps you maintain critical service levels across complex network environments. The integration combines the automated availability and performance management of 
CA eHealth
 with the 
CA Spectrum
 network service and analysis platform.
CA Spectrum
 manages networks, pinpoints and corrects problems, and alerts you to changes in the network or device status. The system creates a model of every entity in the network, including cables, network devices, servers, and applications. 
CA Spectrum
 provides a seamless view of the enterprise network.
The historical data and automated reporting capabilities of 
CA eHealth
:
  • Automate the tasks of calculating long-term trends, providing a baseline for network resources.
  • Provide performance reports for critical network components such as backbones, server clusters, and internet links.
CA eHealth
 also offers proactive troubleshooting and capacity planning features.
The 
CA eHealth
 and 
CA Spectrum
 integration gives you significant time and productivity benefits. The integration lets you:
  • Use 
    CA eHealth
     to discover devices automatically that 
    CA Spectrum
     manages, eliminating the need to reenter and continually update configuration data manually.
  • Access 
    CA eHealth
     reports, such as At-a-Glance and Trend, directly from the 
    CA Spectrum
     OneClick topology. Quick access gives you an overview of device status and in-depth historical information.
  • To reduce the mean-time-to-repair for network issues, you can:
    • Manage the Live Exceptions alarms from the 
      CA Spectrum
       OneClick console
    • View Alarm Detail reports
    • Clear alarms
  • Access 
    CA eHealth
     reports from the 
    CA Spectrum
     alarms, giving you a historical context for more effective troubleshooting.
  • Use 
    CA eHealth
     for capacity planning, proactive troubleshooting, performance optimization, and service level management of your network components that 
    CA Spectrum
     manages.
The integration of the current version of 
CA Spectrum
 with 
CA eHealth
 Release 6.0 or higher provides a cohesive view of the integration by:
  • Supporting the 
    CA eHealth
     High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR) failover scenarios. In 
    CA eHealth
     High Availability and Disaster Recovery failover scenarios, a secondary server takes over for a primary server when required.
  • Providing a location within 
    CA Spectrum
     OneClick for configuring integration options for individual 
    CA eHealth
     servers.
  • Creating a set of models that represents a 
    CA eHealth
     server cluster and its constituent parts. The server models are accessible under the existing 
    CA eHealth
     Manager tree in 
    CA Spectrum
     OneClick. A standalone 
    CA eHealth
     system is modeled as a cluster consisting of one 
    CA eHealth
     server.
