Automatic application discovery
Automatically discover the entire topology of your Citrix CloudPlatform application and enable your team to spend time on innovation instead of configuration.
Display key performance indicators
Gain a real-time view of the complete health of your Citrix CloudPlatform application by monitoring load, average, response time and error rate for the application, and dynamic baselines for all of these values to show what's normal vs abnormal.
Distributed call graphs
Follow a user request as it traverses your distributed Citrix CloudPlatform application and collect end-to-end code execution and latency data to provide context required to isolate root cause quickly.
Real-time business metrics
Correlate application performance metrics to the metrics that matter most to your business and get real-time insight when performance deviates from the baseline.
Ensure accurate capacity planning for cloud environments with tools to dynamically scale up or scale down cloud resources based on performance metrics.
