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 Java" HTTP 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.
You’re also able to Monitor JVM health and Performance, understanding the health of your JVM with key Java profiling metrics like response time, throughput, exception rate, and garbage collection time as well as key system resource like CPU, memory, and disk I/O.
Distributed Business Transaction Tracing enable an advanced tag-and-follow tracing of distributed transactions across your JVMs. You gain a simple, intuitive view of how a distributed business transaction executes and where bottlenecks exist. And finally, you can troubleshoot Java Code Latency in Minutes, getting full visibility of Java code execution as business transactions and requests are processed by the JVM. This allows you to isolate latency and pinpoint its root cause in minutes.
In regards to JMX trending, you can get a comprehensive metrics viewer that allows you to correlate, trend and analyze key metrics from your JVM and Container (via JMX) as well as metrics via custom MBeans, as well as detect and troubleshoot memory leaks and object thrash issues, even under production load.
