Red Hat Insights is all about making sure your systems are running as smoothly as possible. Not just for Red Hat applications, but also for your other enterprise apps. We’ve begun developing rules tailored to large enterprise applications that could use the fine tuning expertise that Red Hat provides. We’ve nailed down the optimal settings required by SAP apps, and now Insights can let you know if those are in place on your systems.
We’ve introduced SAP related rules for alerting you to system configurations which are not up to the specs recommended by either Red Hat or SAP. Having these enterprise apps on systems tailored to their specific needs can be greatly beneficial for the system and more importantly to the clients that have to use them.
We want the apps you entrust to Red Hat Enterprise Linux to be as effective and efficient as you need them to be. These new rules will help you accomplish that goal.
