Within seconds of deploying Applications Manager's APM Insight agent, you can also map dependencies across different components of an application stack to understand their interaction with each other. There are graphs available for easy comprehension and analysis of critical performance metrics to understand how they impact your application over a period of time. The application performance monitoring dashboard also lists out anomalies in the order of highest to lowest impact on application performance so that DevOps engineers can analyze the root cause and come to a conclusion on the decisive action to be taken.

We monitor the performance of applications built on:

Get code-level application insights

Obtain thorough information on the transactions that are being carried out by your application with our application performance monitoring tool. This helps you understand what causes sluggish transactions and how to speed up response time. A table view of all your transactions makes it easier to identify the slow performing ones, while the graph view can be used for breaking down each transaction and analyzing their performance parameters. Tracing these transactions enables further investigation into the line of code that is causing the error.

On analyzing each transaction, you get a list of the 5 most recent traces and the accompanying performance metrics, such as response time, CPU time, external calls, internal calls, SQL time, and Distributed Calls count. Total call count, breakdown of slowest method calls and external calls, and request parameters are some of the metrics that can be used to understand distributed data processing and aid in performance tuning.

Also, by identifying the SQL queries used during the transaction, you may figure out which database queries are performing poorly and promptly address the issue. End-to-end application performance monitoring solutions like Applications Manager provides all the information required to get code-level insight of your app so that necessary steps can be taken to optimize and improve overall response time.

Leverage distributed tracing for application performance monitoring

In a microservices environment where there are dozens of services calling one another, it is difficult to understand what's going on inside your application and debug problems that occur in production. With built-in distributed tracing capabilities, Applications Manager's microservices monitoring capabilities can track calls made from one application to another across various platforms and languages. If an error occurs, you can easily understand which service is impacted and raise it to correct team to fix it.

You can improve time to market by deploying or updating new services and immediately visualizing the impact on the product. Applications Manager's application monitoring software also helps you improve developer productivity and output by reducing debugging and diagnostic time.

Capture errors and exceptions

Exceptions are undesirable events that occur as a result of an error during program execution which has can be used to gather information on the elements that are responsible for flow disruption. One of the keys to a solid application performance is having a clear understanding of the errors and exceptions thrown by your application. Applications Manager is a tool with excellent application performance monitoring functionalities where a dedicated application performance monitoring dashboard panel is available to ensure prompt error and exception handling.

The application performance monitor tool lists out each error code and exception that has been thrown by the system which can be drilled down for further analysis, making it easier to prioritize and plan for fault management. To know more about your application exceptions and error codes, Applications Manager gives your their transaction split up where you get to know how much exceptions the recent transactions face and their error codes.

Measure end user satisfaction

Applications Manager's application performance monitoring tool helps IT admins gauge their application users' satisfaction with the help of Apdex scores. The virtual score helps businesses understand how end users might experience their applications which serves as a baseline parameter for performance troubleshooting.

The Apdex score data is collected over a period of time and converted into a simple index - satisfied, tolerating, frustrated - based on the application responsiveness. Streamline troubleshooting efforts. Save precious time by quickly identifying critical debug data without performance overhead. Avoid looking through log files and reduce time to resolve issues.

Discover and map dependencies across application stack

Applications Manager's infrastructure monitoring feature supports over 150+ technologies which enables full stack monitoring This maps dependencies and tracks all elements impacting application health, for faster root cause identification and proactive management. Our app performance monitor's automated service maps help you get a complete overview of your application architecture and visualize its connections and dependencies. The service map feature of our APM monitoring tool allows you to:

  • Quickly get an overview of the current health and operational status of your entire environment.
  • Identify problematic elements and drill down further to narrow down the issue to the individual host of the external component.
  • Assess the impact of performance issues, both upstream and downstream, by looking at how the components are connected.

Track database operations

Applications Manager lays out extensive information about the database and its underlying operations. Discover queries consuming more time and tend to it with the help of details like average, minimum, maximum, and total response times for all DB queries.

Besides monitoring application performance, you can also understand the number of times a query is invoked along with the throughput, SQL time and error stats. By using Applications Manager to track SQL queries executed during the transaction, you can easily isolate poorly performing database queries and focus on optimizing them.

Applications Manager is an application observability software that also helps you improve developer productivity and output by reducing debugging and diagnostic time. You can improve time to market by deploying or updating new services and immediately visualizing the impact on the product. We currently support distributed tracing for Java, .NET and Node.js applications.

Boost performance with thread profiling

Monitor application performance to diagnose complex problems in production without executing thread dumps and analyzing enormous amounts of raw data with the help of thread profiling. App performance monitoring tools such as Applications Manager help you spot high CPU consuming threads, along with their thread ID, CPU time and memory allocated details.

An application performance monitor tool breaksdown each thread to show the ID, method used to call, CPU time, and memory allocated

In addition, Applications Manager's application performance analyzer provides data on the invocation count of every method. You can isolate methods that contribute to slow responses and diagnose the root cause of CPU spikes and performance bottlenecks.

Improve DevOps practices

Applications Manager enables DevOps monitoring through a variety of capabilities such as end user experience monitoring, infrastructure monitoring, and digital experience monitoring which work in synergy with our application performance monitor. This helps DevOps save precious time by quickly identifying critical debug data without performance overhead having to avoid looking through log files to resolve issues. One can anticipate user needs and optimize applications accordingly. See the effect of every change in your environment within a single console to improve the quality of the product and expedite release cycles.
