Application Performance Monitoring

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So you need to perform some application performance monitoring from a single dashboard, how do you do it?

Well this is obviously easier said than done as there is more than one way to accomplish this. In my mind it’s best to take a blended approach. You need to have network gear that supports collecting the data you need through the use of snmp, netflow and NBAR.

You need to also gather information through the use of monitoring services and WMI. Then you need to consolidate all of this information in one place and need some way to display it so the data is meaningful and easy to sift through.

Now there are a lot of applications that do this, but I wanted to draw your attention to a great product from Solarwinds. It’s called Orion Application Performance Monitor.

You can go to the Solarwinds website and download a free copy or try out a demo on the site. Check it out!
