APM Tools: Application Performance Monitoring

Application Performance Management Tools

AppDynamics provides a significant amount of detail to solve performance problems by using APM Tools and an analytics-driven approach. The agents are extremely intelligent and know when to capture important details and when to simple collect the basics, and this is for every transaction.

Our Application Performance Management solution baselines, monitors and reports on the performance of all transactions that flow through your app. Our APM solution was built for production environments, which provides an agile approach when it comes to capturing the details of transactions. Automatically determine normal performance and stop false alarms with dynamic baselining for end-to-end response time.

We score all of the transactions by doing a comparrison of the self-learned baseline to the actual response time. When we determine that a Business Transaction has gone too far from its normal behavior, our agent can automatically collect full call stack details in order to troubleshooting the issue. This smart-analytics method enables AppDynamics to find and alert problems from the very beginning, so that they can be fixed before any major impact occurs.

At times the process of deep data capturing of transactions can become advantageous but AppDynamics has a feature that solves this need. We have a feature that enables full system-wide data recording. Developer mode is ideal for pre-production environments and every single request will be captured through a transaction snapshot. Also, it will shut down automatically when it is accidently left on, so that your system won't stall if transaction volume rises.

"One of the key advantages that we have seen from Business iQ is that it provides a vehicle for both business colleagues and IT colleagues to collaborate together around a single source of truth."
