Four Tips for Improving Application Performance Management

Four Tips for Improving Application Performance Management

This week, Logicalis US released a list of four practices they suggest IT professionals adopt as part of an application performance management scheme.

  1. Set a measurable baseline: Many organizations lack an empirical benchmark for how an application should perform. As a result, too many rely on human perception or the number of support calls to deduce that an application is not performing as desired. Logicalis experts recommend setting a baseline for application performance that is based on data and analytics.
  2. Shorten the time to resolution: Quickly identifying the root cause of the problem is essential but can be challenging. Often, the various component monitoring solutions in a network are not integrated. Network monitoring should begin at the end-user perspective and work back through the infrastructure, Logicalis experts said. The goal is to anticipate potential performance problems before they occur, allowing for proactive or automated remediation of issues.
  3. Employ Dev-Ops: A Dev-Ops strategy and related tooling can provide an organization with applications that are optimized for digital environments, helping to avoid performance problems in the first place. In-house coding can mean fewer defects and support issues down the line.
  4. Report on performance: Service providers should combine the benchmarking information with data about the supporting technologies, including the network, servers, storage, tuning and remediation procedures, with an eye toward continually improving performance and meeting service level agreements.
