Tomcat Monitoring

Tomcat Performance Monitoring and Management

Apache Tomcat is one of the leading JavaEE application servers in the market and a popular choice for customers for deploying their application. Monitoring of performance and availability is key to an effective application performance management strategy.

Tomcat Server Benefits:

Monitor Business Transactions

AppDynamics can also auto-discover business transactions from common entry points in Tomcat and its JVM such as servlets, struts actions, spring MVC, web services calls and even custom POJO entry points. From this context users can see how business transactions execute through various Java components like SOAP, EJB, JDBC, JMS, CICS as well as remote calls cross JVM and CLR calls for distributed transactions.

Real-Time Alerting for Tomcat

AppDynamics also provides dynamic SLA base-lining and pro-active alerting so that performance issues can be notified as they surface, giving application and production support teams an early warning before end user experience and service levels start to breach.

More About Tomcat Monitoring 

Apache Tomcat (or Jakarta Tomcat or simply Tomcat) is an open source servlet container developed by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Tomcat provides a "pure JavaHTTP web server environment for Java code to run.

Tomcat should not be confused with the Apache web server, which is a C implementation of an HTTP web server; these two web servers are not bundled together, although they are frequently used together as part of a server application stack. Apache Tomcat includes tools for configuration and management, but can also be configured by editing XML configuration files.

From our UI, Tomcat application owners can get a 360 degree view of application performance, as described in our white paper. You can engage in Tomcat monitoring by gaining visibility into its performance (including hardware and CPU metrics, as well as memory usage) and troubleshoot performance down to the method and class level while Tomcat profiling.

You’re able to visualize and map JVM dependencies, automatically discovering and mapping of all tiers that service and interact with your java Application and JVM. This gives you a far superior high-level view into your application performance than other Java performance tools.
