SL announced the availability of RTView Enterprise version 5.3 with continuous improvements in user experience.
The release adds support for application and middleware support teams to proactively monitor their critical environments.
RTView is a non-intrusive, low ownership cost, and predominantly agentless application monitoring system that provides unique visibility into microservices, messaging middleware, process orchestration, and container infrastructure.
"With significant user experience improvements around alerting, security configuration, and display customization, our customers will find it even easier to eliminate outages and downtime in their critical middleware environments, said Ted Wilson, SL's Chief Operating Officer. RTView Enterprise version 5.3 is a big step forward."
With support for user-defined custom alerts against any monitored metrics, users can now experience enhanced proactive alerting, maximizing application continuity. The Alert Overrides Admin display now supports multiple selections to create, edit, or remove overrides for multiple alerts. A pattern/regex filter is now available to search patterns on all index columns at once.
The new Custom Display Designer enables users to improve application and business service performance by creating and publishing custom, personalized views without programming. Additionally, a Grafana plug-in, with integration to RTView DataServers, provides Grafana developers with additional customization options for creating custom displays with RTView metrics.
The new Application Data Flow Diagram feature allows users to visualize complex application data flows more intuitively across different layers, upstream and downstream, and their performance. App owners and support teams can zoom in to navigate complex flows to identify issues in a highly visual way and take remedial action.
Users will notice enhanced support for LDAP with a simple three-step configuration. DataServer support for secure socket connections are enabled via a simple UI.
Other enhancements include:
■ Solace PubSub+ Monitoring
- Personalized views of key metrics can be quickly created and deployed with the new Custom Display Designer.
- Defined custom alerts that can be created on any metric in PubSub+ Monitor allow users to stay on top of what matters most.
- Simplified setup, configuration and evolution of alert overrides at a more granular level.
- SEMP Schemas are now automatically uploaded from brokers.
- Improved topology views for bridges and neighbors provide better visibility of the Solace estate and visible alerts.
- LDAP and security configuration via a graphical interface.
■ Kafka Monitoring
- Auto discovery of Kafka Brokers in a Cluster.
- New Kafka Topic displays with aggregated time-based message counts across hour, day and week periods.
■ IBM MQ Monitoring
- Queue Manager Level Alerts on IBM MQ. All IBM MQ Queue alerts have now a new index containing the name of its Queue Manager, which can be used to define alert overrides by this column. Queue Manager names no longer contain spaces.
Michael Olson on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I really see AIOps as being a core requirement for observability because it ... applies intelligence to your telemetry data and your incident data ... to potentially predict problems before they happen."
Enterprise ITOM and ITSM teams have been welcoming of AIOps, believing that it has the potential to deliver great value to them as their IT environments become more distributed, hybrid and complex. Not so with DevOps teams. It's safe to say they've kept AIOps at arm's length, because they don't think it's relevant nor useful for what they do. Instead, to manage the software code they develop and deploy, they've focused on observability ...
The post-pandemic environment has resulted in a major shift on where SREs will be located, with nearly 50% of SREs believing they will be working remotely post COVID-19, as compared to only 19% prior to the pandemic, according to the 2020 SRE Survey Report from Catchpoint and the DevOps Institute ...
All application traffic travels across the network. While application performance management tools can offer insight into how critical applications are functioning, they do not provide visibility into the broader network environment. In order to optimize application performance, you need a few key capabilities. Let's explore three steps that can help NetOps teams better support the critical applications upon which your business depends ...

Will Cappelli on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I'll predict that in 5 years time, APM as we know it will have been completely mutated into an observability plus dynamic analytics capability."
When you consider that the average end-user interacts with at least 8 applications, then think about how important those applications are in the overall success of the business and how often the interface between the application and the hardware needs to be updated, it's a potential minefield for business operations. Any single update could explode in your face at any time ...
Despite the efforts in modernizing and building a robust infrastructure, IT teams routinely deal with the application, database, hardware, or software outages that can last from a few minutes to several days. These types of incidents can cause financial losses to businesses and damage its reputation ...
