Having the ability to engage in a fact based conversation about the end-user-experience, instead of “spinning” infrastructure metrics and making assumptions about performance, is an elegant proficiency. Taking the emotion out of performance related problems for critical business applications is one of the intangible benefits that an APM solution can bring to your table ...

There are many proposed approaches to APM. One approach is collecting performance data from the application itself while the other is collecting application data from packet data by sniffing on the network. Fetching metrics from the application process itself yields valuable data such as memory, buffers, cache and other such application data which cannot be obtained from the wire. On the other hand, performance metrics from the network itself gives a good breakdown of response times and delays from the different components of the entire service ...

“Analytics”, according to IT vendors, can save time, money and improve decision-making. Unfortunately, “analytics” is being thrown around generically by vendors in many different contexts, representing a wide range of capabilities that are as different as polar bears and Amazonian ants. As a result, “analytics” has become ambiguous and poorly defined ...
