Louis St-Amour wrote a very helpful comment on my “The Complete List of End-User Experience Monitoring Tools” post – helpful enough that I thought it deserved a whole post. OWA, indeed commonly means Outlook, so it’s kind of unfortunate naming clash, but in this case I’m referring to Open Web Analytics from http://www.openwebanalytics.com/ which has whatRead More

The US Government has a problem. It wants to move some services to the cloud, but it doesn’t have any idea how to count its vast inventory of IT assets to get a baseline against which it can measure how much money the cloud is saving it. Perhaps APM monitoring tools could help.
You might not realize it, but you can use APM tools not only to monitor your web site and applications, but as a testing tool to see how well a potential new tool will perform under the pressure of your company’s baseline requirements.
When you can’t find the nature of a problem because of monitoring software limitations, it can have a spiraling affect as users grow increasingly agitated. That’s why having APM software in place that lets you trace problems across your entire infrastructure is so critical.
A GAO report calls out some government agencies for failing to establish baselines against which it can measure the success or failure of Green IT initiatives. It seems like establishing a baseline would be Monitoring 101, but apparently not for the government.
There’s an age-old communication gap between IT and the executive suite, but one way you get executives to understand the purpose and value of monitoring is by building a dashboard with targeted metrics executives can get their arms around.
There’s always an excuse why you can’t find the source of your application or web site performance problem, but in the end it doesn’t matter who’s to blame. You have to figure it out.
While it’s easy to be drawn to a monitoring tool that does everything under the sun, preliminary results of a new survey have found that companies are more often than not looking for tools that fit their specific use cases, rather than a one-stop tool that does it all.
Sometimes your customer’s speed problem might be the ISP playing fast and loose with net neutrality rules. A new open source tool could help you detect when that’s the case.
In part one of my look at applying application performance monitoring in a big data environment, we examined how nonrelational databases work and what unique challenges they present to traditional application performance monitoring tools. Because of their non-ACID approach, I argued, application performance metrics become very complex in a system where the business transaction itselfRead More
