Riverbed will showcase at O’Reilly Velocity, a conference devoted to web operations, DevOps, and systems engineering, the latest release of Riverbed SteelCentral.

Riverbed SteelCentral blends device-based end user experience, infrastructure, application, and network monitoring to enable customers to holistically manage the users’ digital experience.

This unique approach enables organizations to monitor the digital experience for all users and all applications - on prem, SaaS, and cloud - while capturing every application transaction at a level of depth and quality that is essential for digital business insights. This release also introduces unparalleled “big data” scale for digital business with the ability to collect and analyze full details for billions of transactions per day, and delivers powerful AI and business analytics that provide meaningful insights for IT and the business.

Riverbed Presentation

Title: The “Sound” of Performance Monitoring Data

Date/Time: Thursday June 14, 2018 at 1:15pm - 1:55pm PDT

Location: Room LL20 C

Speaker: Jon Hodgson, Chief Scientist for APM at Riverbed Technology

At the conference, Jon Hodgson, Chief Scientist for APM at Riverbed, will lead a presentation that will explore how the digital media industry leverages fundamental digital signal processing principles to ensure that analog events are captured with precise fidelity, yet in the field of performance monitoring, these principles seem to be largely absent in many tools, which then imprecisely capture the performance data we rely on.

Using sound as a surrogate for monitoring data, Jon will offer an overview of digital signal processing concepts and investigate analogous real-world cases where performance data effectively “lied” to the troubleshooter, suggesting that overloaded resources weren’t and vice versa. Attendees will learn how to avoid these pitfalls and determine if the data from their monitoring tools is sufficient to detect and quantify certain common problems and how to read between the lines to identify when the data can (and cannot) be trusted. Along the way, Jon will explain how other fields have overcome these challenges and how some of their unconventional techniques can be applied to DevOps methodologies.

High availability's (HA) primary objective has historically been focused on ensuring continuous operations and performance. HA was built on a foundation of redundancy and failover technologies and methodologies to ensure business continuity in the event of workload spikes, planned maintenance, and unplanned downtime. Today, HA methodologies have been superseded by intelligent workload routing automation (i.e., intelligent availability), in that data and their processing are consistently directed to the proper place at the right time ...

As a Network Operations professional, you know how hard it is to ensure optimal network performance when you’re unsure of how end-user devices, application code, and infrastructure affect performance. Identifying your important applications and prioritizing their performance is more difficult than ever, especially when much of an organization’s web-based traffic appears the same to the network. You need insight to maximize performance — not inefficient troubleshooting, longer time to resolution, and an overall lack of application intelligence. But you can stay ahead. Follow these 10 steps to maximize the performance of your applications and underlying network infrastructure ...

IT organizations are constantly trying to optimize operations and troubleshooting activities and for good reason. Let's look at one example for the medical industry. Networked applications, such as electronic medical records (EMR), are vital for hospitals to provide outstanding service to their patients and physicians. However, a networking team can often not be aware of slow response times on the remotely hosted EMR application until a physician or someone else calls in to complain ...

This question is really two questions. The first would be: What's really going on in terms of a confusion of terms? — as we wrestle with AIOps, IT Operational Analytics, big data, AI bots, machine learning, and more generically stated "AI platforms" (… and the list is far from complete). The second might be phrased as: What's really going on in terms of real-world advanced IT analytics deployments — where are they succeeding, and where are they not? This blog will look at both questions as a way of introducing EMA's newest research with data ...
