Apache Tomcat is one of the foremost JavaEE application servers in the market. It is mostly preferred by customers for application deployment. For an effective application performance management, monitoring of performance and availability is highly important.
Compare and Trend Key Tomcat Server metrics during Apache Monitoring
Monitor Business Transactions
AppDynamics identifies business transactions from common entry points in Tomcat and its JVM such as struts actions, servlets, web services calls, custom POJO, and spring MVC entry points. This enables users to understand how business transactions take place through various Java components like EJB, SOAP, JDBC, CICS, JMS, as well as CLR calls and remote calls cross JVM for distributed transactions.
Real-Time Alerting for Tomcat
AppDynamics warns application and production support teams about performance issues before end user experience and service level breach through pro-active alerting and dynamic SLA base-lining.
Tomcat is often mistaken for the Apache web server, which is actually a C implementation of an HTTP web server. Though, as part of a server application stack, Tomcat and the Apache web server are used together, they are never bundled together. Even though, Apache Tomcat comes with configuration and management tools, it can be configured by editing XML configuration files.
Tomcat application owners get a 360 degree view of application performance from our interface. Moreover, the owners can gain visibility into its performance (including hardware and CPU metrics, as well as memory usage) and troubleshoot performance issues down to the method and class level while Tomcat profiling.
With Tomcat monitoring, you can map JVM dependencies, auto discover and map all tiers that service and interact with your java Application and JVM. This provides you a greater visibility into your application performance when compared to other Java performance tools.
We engaged the AppDynamics Enablement Team and within a week we found over a dozen major defects that were affecting the performance and stability of our products. Great team, great enablement.

I’ve got many years of performance geekery under my belt and I’ve learned many lessons during that time. One of the most important lessons is paying close attention to the distinction between data and information. Let’s take a look at how the dictionary defines each term: Data – facts and statistics...
We’re pretty excited about our first AppJam User Group Summit in the USA! Hosted by our very own App Man–who couldn’t write this post because he’s busy dry cleaning his costume–AppJam is an opportunity for AppDynamics customers to network, share best practices, and learn from one another as well as...
