Slow SQL – A Usual Suspect

Ask any developer to name a few common performance bottlenecks and 99.9% of them will say “the database” as their first answer. Ask a DBA the same question and 99.9% of them will respond “crappy application code.” If we put aside the mutual love between each party, it’s actually worth looking at why they arrive […]

A Decade of APM Acquisitions and Evolution

“APM Game Changer” was the headline yesterday with the news that Compuware acquired Dynatrace Software for $256 million. With the APM market worth an estimated $6 billion, it’s not really a surprise to see such a transaction (no pun intended) within the APM market. In fact, over the past ten years, there have been several […]

We felt Application Performance shouldn’t discriminate and should be available to all sizes of organizations, from startups to SMBs to large Enterprises. In the past, the Cost and Complexity of legacy APM made it only available to large […]

Making The Business More Agile

Working in IT is the same. We’ve got clouds, NoSQL, agile, SOA, ria, pythons, scalas, rubies, and lots of ideas […]

Web Ops to Dev Ops in Mountain View

After Velocity came DevOpsDays in Mountain View. I was hoping to give my feet and liver a rest after two consecutive days at Velocity. When I woke up at 7:30 a.m. the next day my body was throwing lots of OutOfEnergyExceptions, and it did cross my mind whether another 2 day event on Dev and […]

AppDynamics gains Velocity

AppDynamics had a great time last week at Velocity; it was probably the most relevant event we’ll attend this year. Great Keynotes, sessions and an audience that truly understood the significance of application performance. At our booth, it was refreshing to hear questions around monitoring application performance in the cloud (specifically EC2), as well as […]

Burst with Business Transactions

I love Business Transactions. In fact, at MIT during my Ph.D. I had to learn how to be faster than a speeding business transaction to keep up and monitor them. It wasn’t easy! I mean, you try hopping across multiple tiers and into call stacks in milliseconds. It’s enough to give anyone a headache, especially […]

The Real Overhead of Managing Application Performance

Have you ever tried to troubleshoot a production bottleneck or outage? Let me guess: the first place you’ll look is log files, right? And in those log files lay all the answers to your problems? Err, not exactly. Log files are like haystacks; they take up lots of space and take hours to find the […]

Will NoSQL and Big Data Kill the DBA?

Remember the good old days where developers and DBAs would argue over who and what was killing the relational database? “It’s your crap SQL,” “You forgot to create an index,” “You don’t know what an index is”…and so on. Do you remember when the DBA occasionally spoke and served out humble pie on how to […]

Self Tuning Applications in the Cloud: It’s about time!

In my previous blog I’ve written about the hard work needed to successfully migrate applications to the cloud.   But why go through all that work to get to the cloud? It’s to take advantage of the dynamic nature of the cloud with the ability (and agility) to quickly scale applications. Your application’s load probably […]
