Application Performance Monitoring

What is application performance monitoring?

Application performance monitoring (APM) is the process of managing software applications to ensure their optimal performance by gauging various key performance indicators and the overall user experience. APM solutions help you analyze application performance, gain a holistic view of how application components connect and communicate, and identify application performance issues before they impact real users.

By using an application monitoring tool or platform, you can customize metrics critical to your business, identify anomalies quickly, debug contextually, and use AI-powered insights to scale your business proactively.

Capabilities of Site24x7's application performance monitoring tool


Application Performance Monitoring Tool - Site24x7

Optimize response time

Monitor individual transactions across microservices and distributed architecture. Use distributed tracing to understand the ripple effect: how a request from one service leads to an error in another. Instantly identify and resolve errors and reduce mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to resolve (MTTR).

Understand external dependencies

Visualize application topology and gain a holistic view of your application architecture, from URLs to SQL queries. Identify component failure at a single glance and debug method level errors.

Web Application Performance Monitoring - Site24x7

Monitor custom components and metrics

Mark business critical transactions as key transactions and track their performance at a glance. Instrument custom frameworks, components, and exceptions from cutom logs and analyze their performance with ease. Group key metrics using custom dashboards and debug issues contextually.

AI-powered alerts and reports

Prevent potential catastrophes with AI-powered alerts. Our anomaly detection engine, powered by machine learning and forecasting techniques, detects any unusual behavior or spikes in your application performance and notifies you immediately. This helps you take corrective action before your customers are affected.

Real User Monitoring

Obtain complete context

Understand how your application performance is perceived by end users across various geographies, in real time. Improve front-end performance by fixing JS errors, AJAX calls, and optimize page load time. Integrate APM Insight with Real User Monitoring (RUM) to obtain a unified view.

Overview of application performance monitoring

What is the difference between an APM platform and an APM tool?

APM tools are often pointed solutions that cater to certain aspects of an application's performance. APM tools usually help identify issues within these points of monitoring.

On the other hand, APM platforms are more comprehensive, leverage automation and artificial intelligence to provide an in-depth analysis of the overall performance of the entire infrastructure stack, identify and perform root cause analysis on anomalies, and help improve the overall user experience and application performance in the long run.

What are the benefits of application performance monitoring?

In today’s digital world, slow is the new down. A one-second delay can affect your business bottom line directly and impact your end-user experience. This is where application performance monitoring solutions come handy.

An application performance monitor helps you track various metrics like your application response time, throughput, errors, and exceptions in real time. Once you deploy your cloud-based or on-premises application performance monitoring tool, you gain access to real-time alerts and reports that help you evaluate and monitor your web application performance. AI-powered alerting and anomaly detection also come in handy for proactive monitoring.

Proactive web application performance monitoring helps you understand how your application performs under various scenarios and optimize it accordingly.

How does an application performance monitoring tool work?

Application performance monitoring tools work by tracking the time taken by functions in your application code in real time. Typically, a monitoring agent is installed in the app servers that then instruments and collects performance metrics of key functions in well-known frameworks. The agent also allows customizing the instrumentation via configuration or API and groups the metrics by their event source, usually an HTTP/API request or a service/database call, to provide a bird's-eye view of the health and performance bottlenecks in the application.

What are the best practices for application performance monitoring?

To ensure the best outcome for your monitoring efforts, it is important to follow a set of rules, or rather best practices. Before you begin your monitoring journey:
