Kashef is a powerful application designed to collect information from a variety of sources in real-time and to enable proactive monitoring diagnostics. This increases system availability and reduces downtime on end-users. It is now possible to find out when the system is slow before users complain. Kashef system leverages a modular design where a large number of basic building blocks ( called Kashef Components or KACs for short ) are available out of the box that can then be used in creating more complex blocks. Implementing a monitoring solution therefore becomes the process of creating new configurations based on these blocks or using an existing available configuration which comes in the form of a KPack ( Kashef Pack ). This is analogous to creating circuit boards from basic electronic components such as transistors resisters and capacitors.
