Application and systems monitoring with the right balance of control and automation
The NetIQ AppManager® Application modules monitor performance from an end-user perspective. This provides early warning of problems before users begin calling and provides objective measurement of performance.
The business problem
Without an objective measurement of the end user experience, IT organizations are subject to complaints that may not be justified. Being blind-sided by user complaints is a constant struggle as well.
The NetIQ solution
AppManager ResponseTime modules execute basic transactions from an agent or client PC, yielding data about the application's availability and its response time. The ResponseTime modules can alert on poor response time and loss of availability, reporting on performance and availability over time.
Key features and benefits
- Increases application availability by consistently and repeatedly monitoring the availability and performance of your server infrastructure from across the network.
- Improves administrative productivity by identifying whether applications, servers or the network are causing performance issues.
- Manages user expectations by uniting user experience data with server and application performance data to show the enterprise how well you are supporting the business.
