5 database monitoring issues that need your attention now

5 database monitoring issues that need your attention now

As the old management adage goes, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” In the fast-paced world of IT, this more accurately translates to, “You can’t improve what you don’t measure.” When it comes to your database, a continuous database monitoring system provides the foundation for progress: metrics. Without a monitoring system, it’s impossible to determine whether changes — server configurations, software releases, new business processes, etc.

The changing face of Application Performance Management – Computerworld

The changing face of Application Performance Management

Nastel Comments: The ability to support new application environments is brought out as an import element in selecting the the APM vendor that is most appropriate for your environment. Often, this includes monitoring and analysis across silos as Clabby says, both off and on-premises.

When I first started writing about Application Performance Management (APM), the technology was largely focused on root-cause application diagnostics and business transaction management (BTM). Companies like the now-defunct Optier were riding high based on their ability to track transactions through multiple layers of complex infrastructure.

Getting to the Root of Root Cause Analysis

Root cause analysis in often referred to as the “Holy Grail” of monitoring.

Getting to the root cause of APM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, if I have my Arthurian legends straight, it was never found.  We won’t count the Indiana Jones re-write of the legend… In fact the Holy Grail is more of an ideal and not something you ever fully accomplish.

Nevertheless, it was considered the most worthwhile pursuit; even if it is always a bit out of reach.  The same holds true for application performance monitoring. Continue reading

Analyze This: The route to sustainable cost reduction

WebSphere insights:  Analyze This:  The route to sustainable cost reductionIT support can waste hours chasing down application bugs and glitches reported by users, only to discover there were no real problems in the first place. False alarms happen often, and cost businesses valuable time and frustrate users.

Complex mission–critical applications–especially those apps that span distributed and mainframe tiers and use various middleware solutions-can generate an abundance of alarms, real and false. This creates a different kind of big data problem for many enterprises. Many monitoring tools produce large volumes of data, which in turn generate alarms–a bulk of which are not for real problems. This can be overwhelming to the business

Visibility? I See!!

Visibility and analytics for proactive problem resolutionWhile sitting in immovable traffic after going to the theater, I was reminded of something I heard someone say… “If we’d have left 15 minutes later, we would have been home by now.”  At the time, this made absolutely no sense.  How could we leave 15 minutes later and be home when we would be behind ourselves?  Unless, of course we had found a wormhole and were about to travel in time… Continue reading
