AppDynamics, provides an Microsoft Azure Performance Monitoring Software that helps simplify the management of various complex, business-critical apps. Slow applications can neither be tolerated by IT Ops and Development teams, nor the CIO, and certainly not end users. AppDynamics helps you do away with all slow performing apps.
With AppDynamics, Microsoft Azure users can:
Track the performance of Microsoft Azure application
Tackle all problems related to performance in real time
Detect root cause of all performance problems
Scale the Windows Azure application
Microsoft Azure Application Mapping- Roles and Services
AppDynamics automatically identifies, maps the living topology and performance of production applications inside Microsoft Azure. Organizations can thus understand Azure roles, the application tiers, and service dependencies inside the Azure Cloud. They can also rapidly isolate the components responsible for slow performance or poor QoS.
End-to-End Distributed Business Transaction Tracing
AppDynamics auto-discovers business transactions that end users experience in the application. All IT Operations and development teams have the context and visibility required to manage and track the end user experience. AppDynamics allows you to follow your transactions across each application tier, Azure Role, and service (SQL Azure, Service Bus & Storage). This is made possible in a highly distributed environment, enabling you to quickly detect bottlenecks.
Appdynamics' call graphs reveal all classes & methods invoked (Inc. custom) not only the usual libraries and Microsoft interfaces, thus allowing you to detect root cause of issues in a matter seconds - and with no blind spots. With intelligent analytics to self-learn, AppDynamics baselines the normal performance of all business transactions in an application.
Auto-Scaling for Microsoft Azure
You can seamlessly provision more Microsoft Azure resources whenever your application and business transactions need it. AppDynamics also offers a policy wizard that has the capacity to auto-scale applications in Windows Azure depending on business transaction KPI such as end user response time or throughput.
No Alert Storming
Superior base-lining, thresholds and problem detection.
"AppDynamics replaced 5 tools we once used to try to troubleshoot application problems. Today, everyone goes to AppDynamics to quickly determine the root cause of the issue."
Apdex is Fatally Flawed
"I’ve been looking into a lot of different statistical methods and algorithms lately and one particularly interesting model is Apdex. If you haven’t heard of it yet, Apdex has been adopted by many companies that sell monitoring software...."
Just how useful is JMX Monitoring?
"I’ve always been a skeptic of JMX monitoring, largely because I felt it was often wrongly positioned as the pillar stone of application monitoring software. An application for me is a collection of business services or transactions that users perform, that causes application logic (code) to request and process data. Without visibility into the performance of business transactions and code execution, JMX monitoring can be seen as just another infrastructure monitoring tool for the JVM. However, when application and JMX monitoring are combined into a single tool, they can offer powerful capabilities for managing application performance...."
