AppDynamics ‘Winter’16’ update enhances server infrastructure monitoring.


AppDynamics, a leading enterprise level application performance management (APM) company has significantly enhanced its Unified Monitoring solution and Database Monitoring capabilities as part of its new “Winter ’16” Release.

“Ensuring the right end-user experience in today’s complex and highly distributed application environments calls for a deep and holistic understanding of exactly how business transactions are performing across the entire infrastructure,” said Andrew Brockfield, Australia and New Zealand country manager for AppDynamics.

“Only by having a unified view of everything—from a user’s entire transaction sequence to the issues at the root of application performance problems—can organisations achieve optimal success as a digital business,” he added.

The enhancements extend its ability to provide deep visibility into applications and database infrastructures to identify and resolve performance issues before they impact user experience and business transactions.

It also announced the release of 25 new extensions, including 19 for monitoring Amazon Web Services (AWS) components. The AppDynamics Exchange now offers nearly 150 extensions to extend monitoring coverage for specific application and infrastructure components

The Unified Monitoring solution broadens the scope of its infrastructure monitoring and application language support of C/C++ monitoring from beta to general availability. With the monitoring capabilities provided by the C/C++ agent SDK, enterprises can leverage powerful its monitoring capabilities.

These including automatic discovery and mapping of all tiers that service and interact with the C/C++ applications, automatic dynamic baselining, data collectors, and health rules. It also manages key metrics including application load and response times, and key system resources including CPU, memory, and disk I/O.

An enhanced and updated version of Server Infrastructure Monitoring gives enterprises a unique application-centric view of server performance to support rapid troubleshooting of poor end-user experience. The Database Monitoring release introduces improved correlation between business transactions, application code, and database queries to more quickly identify database-related performance issues, facilitating rapid issue identification and resolution.

The Winter ’16 Release also introduces enhancements to AppDynamics’ Database Monitoring, which gives enterprises an end-to-end view of end-user experience and business transactions fully integrated from applications, databases, and supporting services, all in a dashboard.

Improvements include robust support for MongoDB databases, advanced business transaction correlation, REST API for automated configuration, new search filters and performance optimisations to improve usability and automatic detection and mapping of all supported internal databases. The release provides rich dash boarding of database performance metrics, integrated into the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform dashboard. The Database Monitoring solution scales to handle the largest enterprise deployments.
