Sample text

28 It is a common trait of first-time monitoring initiatives, where they have an unusually limited scope, that they are committing only to stand-up (undertake a simple, initial deployment) the APM technology and make it available to appropriate users. Three or four months down the road, when the monitoring environment is at or beyond capacity, someone realizes that no one is actually responsible for the APM initiative. Exploiting Those New Metrics across the Application Life Cycle The last visibility gap is for useful collaboration that insures that goals are achieved and the best possible value for the investment is realized.

A mapping of the technologies in current use, as with Figure 1-6, shows what visibility gaps may be present and where APM technology will help the situation. Ultimately, organizational maturity will limit the ability to incorporate the new data streams into existing processes. There isn’t much point in trying to implement more capable monitoring technologies if the process infrastructure is not first established and viable. My point is that all of the APM technologies are useful. If you have solid practices for managing and using logfiles, you are likely going to have a good experience with synthetics.

The services added in this iteration are the Application Audit, Performance Tuning, and Capacity Forecast.
