BlueStripe Software has released FactFinder v6 which incorporates operations-friendly Java monitoring and problem analysis.

“IT Operations and Hosting executives are complaining loudly over the hassle and expense of being forced to use and pay for traditional APM tools designed for Development and QA,” said Chris Neal, CEO of BlueStripe.

“FactFinder v6 expands on our promise of creating a Transaction Management solution that Operations can use to quickly and autonomously detect and remediate transaction performance issues, saving IT departments and the companies they serve time and money.”

With hop-by-hop transaction visibility, FactFinder eliminates the time, manpower, and expense required of complex code analysis tools, while also delivering a comprehensive analysis of transaction paths, the applications they run on, and the underlying infrastructure. This enables IT Operations teams to quickly identify the root cause of problems on their own, without involving developers.

FactFinder integrates easily into existing IT Operations processes, and v6 builds on those capabilities by sending transaction performance and dependency information directly to other tools within the Operations process.

New features included in FactFinder v6 include:

- Java Platform Management for IT Operations: Eliminates the need to use costly and time consuming code-level tools to determine whether a problem requires code debugging or simple WebSphere or WebLogic Server configuration changes. This frees up wasted manpower by involving developers only when a problem is truly a code bug.

- FactFinder Web Reporting Platform: Unlocks FactFinder’s unique performance and dependency data for a variety of stakeholders and operations tasks. Being web-based reports, they are easy to share across organizations for better collaboration. Out of the box reports include “Executive Dashboards” that provide a personalized view of critical applications and transactions; “Server Capacity Reports” that provide awareness of applications and service dependencies for capacity planning; and specialized “Drill Down Reports” for applications, transactions, and machines provide rich trending data in simple web views that are easy to share.

- DNS Transaction Monitoring: Individual DNS transactions are tracked and measured automatically, enabling the isolation of DNS performance and availability problems that affect critical applications and transactions.

FactFinder v6 is available immediately.
