Application Performance Management

Managing application performance means being aware of the state of applications and having the ability to take action to optimize them. The ultimate goal of APM is better business. Business success depends on user productivity and customer satisfaction, so end users are the focus when measuring, optimizing, and investing in application performance.

 

Application Performance Management (APM)

Application performance management involves discovering that a problem exists, figuring out what and where the actual issue is, and lastly fixing it thanks to application troubleshooting (for example, being alerted to application downtime, isolating the root causes of the problem, and then tuning code to resolve the issue).

But how do you know when a problem exists (real time) or will arise (proactive view) with your app? How can you identify where the problem lies in a diverse and complex IT landscape? What exactly are users complaining about? Where are the bottlenecks, or what slice of code is causing havoc? Is slow service affecting all users or just the ones at a specific location?

It is the purpose of application performance monitoring to provide you with the answers to such questions, and supply the information and insights you need to efficiently manage application performance. In other words, monitoring is where application performance management starts; application monitoring is the basis of APM.
