Kohana is a lightweight, open-source framework created to build web applications. Based on Code Igniter, Kohana employs strict PHP5 conventions for OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) and true auto loading. Its HMVC (Hierarchical Model-View-Controller) architecture allows for a hierarchy of cascading directory structures that let developers override properties, methods, and files higher up in the application stack, while maintaining each directory’s autonomy. In addition, Kohana offers powerful event handling, multiple session drivers, simple database abstraction using SQL helpers, and libraries that transparently handle external APIs. Its generous BSD license lets developers use and modify the framework to build commercial applications.
The AppDynamics platform provides full, code-level visibility into the performance of your PHP application built on the Kohana framework. With rapid installation and the most scalable architecture in the industry, AppDynamics solutions help you deploy your applications more quickly and with more confidence.
Distributed transaction tracing
Quickly find performance bottlenecks by tracing transactions across any heterogeneous application environment and correlating PHP calls to downstream Java/.Net/PHP/Node.js tiers.
Web and mobile user experience correlation
Understand the client-side performance impact of business transactions by automatically correlating browser and device performance to originating business transaction performance metrics.
Database / NoSQL visibility
Expand visibility from the user to the database by correlating database performance to originating business transaction performance metrics.
