Deploying for ACI MTS Monitoring

Prognosis supports ACI MTS running on Supported Platforms for Payments

A deployed Prognosis solution for ACI MTS monitoring will consist of the following components:

  • Monitoring Server
    The Prognosis Monitoring server is installed on a UNIX machine that is running the MTS application, it collects the real-time data metrics from the MTS system for online viewing and to store in historical databases.

  • Management Server/Web Application
    The Prognosis Management server should be installed on to a separate MS Windows machine within the environment. Its purpose is to aggregate and consolidate the data collected from the various Monitoring Servers and present it to the system operators via the Prognosis Web Application and/or Windows Client. Normally, only one Management Server is required, however, multiple copies may be installed where multiple Monitoring Servers are to be monitored independently or in order to spread the Prognosis client load. The Web Application provides a web interface for viewing collected data and should be installed with the Management server.

  • Windows Client
    This component provides the full user interface for configuring and controlling Prognosis as well as presenting data from the monitored environment. The Windows Client can be installed on the same machine as the Management Server or it can be installed on one or more separate MS Windows machines and linked to the Prognosis Management Server.

The type of Prognosis component to be installed is selected during the installation process.
