The basic 101 of monitoring is: “Do I have any faults”, “Is my infrastructure online?” or “Am I about to run out of storage space?” But there is now a much deeper need to analyse: “Are my assets on the right storage tier (cost analysis)?”, “what libraries are being best monetised, and importantly, which assets are not currently being used at all?”. Ultimately, questions such as “How much did this production cost to make?” can be aided by the correct tools.
The Sense framework provides plugins for Object Matrix solutions (from MatrixStore to the various client tools). These plugins can alternatively be used to feed monitoring information to other monitor tools if desired. The Sense framework (v1) will also feed statistics information to the Sense dashboard. v2+ will introduce analytics of that information along with monitoring / statistics / analysis from other media workflow locations and tools.
The Sense dashboard is incredibly configurable allowing users to select which information they are interested in. Presentation can be made clear and concise for quick key information, or, detailed and deep for the more analytically minded.
