CA Technologies is pleased to announce the General Availability (GA) of CA Performance Management r3.0.0. This release aligns with the General Availability (GA) of value-added software modules, CA Mediation Manager r3.0.0 and CA Virtual Network Assurance r2.0. Together, the solution provides industry-leading Cisco ACI monitoring, MSP enabling functions, enhanced operational UI, and pushes the upper scale to 4M monitored items. The solution continues the strategy of delivering proven features for operational fit and performance at scale, while expanding on our vision for monitoring complex and dynamic hybrid cloud environments and networks based on SDN/NFV (Software-Defined Networking/Network Functions Virtualization).
The goals of this release were to help customers gain confidence and visibility into Cisco ACI data centers and to enable MSO to reduce CAPEX and increase revenue services. Additionally, we were also able to extend monitoring to Cable DOCSIS cable modems, delivered operational UI in the area of custom attributes, and improve accuracy of device context page content.

Feature Highlight – Cisco ACI Monitoring
In CA Performance Management r3.0 and combined with CA Virtual Network Assurance r2.0, we introduce a new out of the box dashboard called “ACI Console” to provide a starting point for users to monitor Cisco ACI data center. The ACI Console allows the users to see a global view of the ACI data center covering physical, virtual and logical items and includes an innovative relationship topology of the interdependencies of these ACI items.
In CA Performance Management r3.0, we continue to advance in operational UI to help users get to the relevant information faster. One area is in the device context page to concentrate on the most critical information based on the type of devices. Another critical area is in custom attribute. Users can now tag devices with the custom attributes
of their choice to fit their operational needs.
