You need 360° Situational Awareness® to provide a high quality customer experience…and you need it now

In order to ensure performance you need to see in every direction, anticipating problems before your customers are affected. Nastel’s Application Performance Monitoring solution provides deep visibility in every direction, delivering 360° Situational Awareness® of your applications with deep visibility end-to-end. It discovers this information automatically and it does it in real-time.

AutoPilot delivers real-time application monitoring, analytics and alerting along with deep-dive tracking of messages across Web Services, Java, .NET, MQ and CICS on both distributed and mainframe platforms. It is built on an advanced application analytics engine using Complex Event Processing that delivers early-warnings about problems in order to ensure the availability and performance of your important applications.

See the “big picture” with closed loop monitoring

Monitoring individual event thresholds mean little. It is never clear whether they are business impacting or what the threshold should be set to. A better approach is closed loop monitoring of situation. Monitor your applications, analyze as it happens and then act to prevent user impact. Then, improve your identification of the patterns that describe this “situation” and recognize it sooner the next time. This closed loop approach continuously improves your process to reduce frequency and duration of incidents.

How we do it

AutoPilot provides a layered architecture with an advanced application analytical engine using Complex Event Processing (CEP) at its core. The Complex Event Processing engine was built specifically for application performance monitoring and comes with prebuilt rules, policies and templates.

The CEP engine is built on an active data grid that provides hot failover and scale. Additional CEP servers can deployed into production and are immediately utilized via a pub-sub relationship. This provides almost unlimited scalability.

AutoPilot can automatically discover and track messages or transactions across Web Services, Java, .NET, middleware and CICS. This creates a real-time visualization and monitor of business transactions. Unique to this discover is the capability to utilize message payload when “stitching” transactions and the ability to handle asynchronous transactions.

AutoPilot comes with a broad range of plugins, including those for:

  • J2EE Application server (WAS, BEA, Oracle, JBoss)
  • .NET
  • Web Services
  • HTTP
  • Middleware (WebSphere MQ Family, Message Broker, ESB, DataPower, TIBCO RV/EMS and Solace)
  • JMX, SQL, SNMP, C/C++
