IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Monitor Aspera Nodes

It would be great idea if we can have monitoring enabled for Aspera Nodes and secure proxy, the reason I would say is as Aspera provides one of the MFT solution which enables us to transfer huge data and since it has the ability to do so lot of organisations like FICO also uses solution if we can monitor and mange aspera nodes as well via CCM/CCD we will have one stop solution for all IBM applications.

    Control Center Monitor can monitor SSP (Secure Proxy) server as well as configurations. This is true but what i am actually looking for is CCM does not have the ability to monitor the actual logs that we see on proxy servers "/opt/SSP/logs/secureproxy.log and perimeter.log

    Also we cant upgrade the SSP we still have to manually upgrade each SSP nodes, unlike we have the option for Connect Direct.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.

    I would like to clarify that Control Center Monitor can monitor SSP (Secure Proxy) server as well as configurations. Did you have any additional monitoring use-cases apart from that? I would also review options with development team on monitoring Aspera nodes and get back shortly. Appreciate your patience.
