Hello from up.time and Idera. I’m one of the new product managers working on the up.time product after it joined the Idera family. As part of the new Idera Geek Sync series, I’ll be doing a webcast on the theory underpinning application performance monitoring you may want to attend.
It can be confusing to understand all the different monitoring techniques and how they apply to your systems. When I was a Web operations manager working at a large enterprise, we started to accumulate monitoring tools. Our VP kept questioning me about the additional tool buys. “You guys just bought a monitoring tool. Now you’re buying another one. I don’t understand!” What we were really doing was assembling a portfolio of tools that would monitor all the different parts of our application – the endpoints, the systems, the databases, the applications, and more. I found it helpful to devise a “Monitoring 101′ approach that demonstrates the various instrumentation points within a modern computer system and the ways you can instrument them. This talk won’t be specifically about up.time or other Idera products, it will talk at a more theoretical level about the kinds of things you can instrument and how you do that (though I may mention some specific product functionality we have that hits those instrumentation points as examples for reference).
Here’s the description of the talk, and a teaser image:
As applications become more and more critical and valuable in today’s business world, the importance of monitoring the efficiency of those applications has greatly increased. Poor application performance can negatively impact user satisfaction and subsequently cause loss in revenue for your company.
Join us for a Geek Sync as Ernest Mueller, application performance product manager at Idera, walks us through an in depth explanation of application performance infrastructure architecture while exploring the relationship and interconnectivity of each piece within it.
