ManageEngine announced the addition of Skype for Business server reports to Exchange Reporter Plus, its Exchange auditing, monitoring and reporting solution.

Available immediately, these new reports allow Exchange administrators to get metrics on and analyze every aspect of their Skype for Business environment.

While email is still the primary means of workplace communication, many Windows-based organizations depend on Skype for Business for real-time collaboration through calls, conferences and file transfers. Despite giving employees a more efficient way to communicate and collaborate with each other, Skype for Business presents some challenges for administrators. When it comes to reporting, the Skype for Business native control panel is cumbersome and time-consuming to use; PowerShell is a good alternative but only for those proficient in scripting.

"With all the problems that come with native Skype reporting, administrators are looking for a better alternative, one that's faster and easier to use," said Manikandan Thangaraj, director of product management at ManageEngine. "Going forward, we plan to make admins' lives even easier by expanding the Skype for Business capabilities in Exchange Reporter Plus to include auditing and monitoring features."

The new Skype for Business dashboard in Exchange Reporter Plus gives businesses the data they need to plan their network resources.

With Skype for Business reports in hand, administrators can:

- View details about conferences and their configurations, including content storage, grace periods, and maximum file upload size.

- Identify the number of instant messaging sessions and total message count for each user.

- Get comprehensive information about audio and video calls.

- View a summary of all file transfers in their organization.

- Get details about Skype for Business pools, sites, SQL instances and more.

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure. Rather than focus the business around a single location, enterprises are now comprised of a web of remote offices and individuals, where network connectivity has broken down the geographic barriers that in the past limited the availability of talent and resources. Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
