Full Stack Monitoring with eG Enterprise: Converged Application and Infrastructure Performance Visibility

eG-Enterprise-full-stack-APMAs enterprises increasingly rely on websites and web applications to deliver mission-critical business services, the need to ensure high application uptime, peak performance, and superior user experience is greater than ever. Application failures and performance slowdowns have a massive impact on business productivity. Using traditional monitoring tools to track the CPU, memory and disk utilization of the server farm is not sufficient for troubleshooting today. Administrators need to quickly get answer the most common question: “Why is my application slow?”

Application problems can stem from any part of the infrastructure: poorly-written application code, server issues, slow database queries, network connectivity, storage hotspots, or even virtualization issues. Most application performance monitoring (APM) tools focus on the application layer and the business transactions, but they do not provide enough visibility into the infrastructure, where many performance issues can originate.

In contrast, there are also many infrastructure monitoring tools in the market that focus on providing visibility into the various components and silos of the IT infrastructure, such as network, server, storage, and virtualization. But without an application-centric view of the infrastructure, it is not possible to receive contextual insight into how and when the application performance is affected by infrastructure problems.

eG Enterprise Version 6.2 introduces the industry’s first converged application and infrastructure monitoring solution, including end-to-end service visibility, dependency mapping, correlative intelligence and automatic root cause diagnosis. From a single console, administrators can:

  • Measure end-user experience using real user monitoring and synthetic monitoring capabilities, and identify times when customers are encountering slow page loading, errors and outages
  • Trace business transactions across the application runtime architecture, and isolate the tier (web server, application server, database, external calls) that are causing slowness
  • Gain code-level application visibility to identify which part of the application code or database query is affecting execution time
  • Monitor all aspects of the application framework and databases to identify performance abnormalities
  • Get deep-dive visibility into all infrastructure components and understand their relationship with the customer-facing application
  • Visualize your entire service topology and automatically diagnose the root cause of application slowness for performance troubleshooting

eG Enterprise provides full stack monitoring of web applications, tracking every tier and every layer involved in the service delivery – front-end user experience, business transactions, application code, server-side infrastructure, database, network, storage, virtualization, and more. Using a patented auto-correlation technology, eG Enterprise automatically pinpoints the root cause of application problems and accelerates troubleshooting across any physical, virtual, cloud, and container environment.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
