Microsoft Dynamics AX is a popular integrated ERP solution that streamlines financial, customer relationship and supply chain processes that are capable of warehousing, production, accounting, etc. among numerous other operations. It helps consolidate business processes and provides better visibility across organizations. With Applications Manager, ensure that your Dynamics AX environment is always delivering maximum value and make confident business decisions that help your organization grow.
By keeping track of the Application Object Server, you can always know the number of client requests processed and server responses per minute. Serving as a bridge between the database and the client, the AOS enables sharing of information and objects to boost network performance. With vital AOS stats readily available, expect your AOS to always perform at its best.
Given that your Dynamics AX server runs on an SQL database, the health and performance of the database is extremely crucial in ensuring that you are receiving maximum value from your AX server. This can only be ensured by tracking key SQL server stats time and again to check and identify bottlenecks and eliminate them. Applications Manager monitors all critical SQL stats like user connections, active transactions, SQL compilations, server memory, etc. Tracking these critical metrics helps identify potential issues and make vital business decisions with confidence.
For example, keep track of the buffer manager stats so you can ensure a high buffer cache hit ratio at all times. If the buffer cache hit ratio is low, you can increase it by increasing the amount of memory available to the SQL Server.
For your Microsoft Dynamics AX server to function with maximum efficiency, the underlying server on which it is deployed has to function efficiently. In order to ensure this, you need to regularly track the key performance metrics of this server. Processor, memory, disk and network details of this server are important metrics to monitor in order to understand server behaviour and identify performance trends. Analysing performance trends regularly can reveal valuable information about potential bottlenecks. Since the performance of your Dynamics AX server is directly related to the health of this server, keeping an eye on key metrics is always useful.
Analysing reports regularly can reveal server usage patterns and help in better understanding the server environments. Analysing historical performance trends are often key to predicting future trends. With reports, gain further insight into your Dynamics AX servers and understand potential issues that could become performance threats and make conscious decisions.
