Top Three Tips for Cloud Application Management – From EMA

Recently, EMA came out with a very informative webinar which focused on end user experience monitoring for the Cloud. You can see a full recording here (you do not even need to provide an email address).

The entire slide deck is available below via SlideShare.

If I had to sum up the top three tips in three words, they would be:

application performance monitoring

Be paranoid about your end user experience monitoring

  • Watch every transaction from every user
  • Get the key user experience metrics
  • Look across space

Be smart about your end user experience monitoring

  • Create performance models
  • Compare between good and bad transactions of the same type
  • Compare between new and old production behavior

Be lazy about your end user experience monitoring

  • Enforce Service Level Agreements (SLAs) on end user experience
  • Automatically alert when response times reach thresholds
  • Automate actions to improve performance
