FAQs about Application performance monitoring (APM) tools

What are APM tools?

APM tools are software solutions designed to track, measure, and analyze application behavior and performance in real-time and give you suggestions to optimize your application's working. While a lot of APM tools are point solutions that cater to certain aspects of an application's performance, tools such as the Site24x7 APM tool are comprehensive and 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 over the long run.

Why is an application performance monitoring tool important for businesses

Application performance monitoring is crucial for several key reasons. An application monitoring tool or solution plays a vital role in identifying and notifying users about performance issues in core business applications. This is essential for proactive issue resolution, as it enables users to track their applications and receive alerts, preventing service interruptions and downtime.

An APM tool provides a unified view of events, enabling the identification of performance issues and their root causes. This streamlined troubleshooting process is facilitated by visualizing interactions among application components. Monitoring performance metrics also aids developers in gaining valuable insights for optimizing application performance, responsiveness, and resource utilization.

Application performance monitoring is vital for ensuring uninterrupted performance, streamlining issue resolution, and optimizing overall application functionality.

APM tools work by tracking in real time the time taken by functions in your application code. 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 the instrumentation to be customized 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 potential performance bottlenecks in the application.

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

  • Identify critical business functions and evaluate your needs and requirements.
  • Compare and analyze various vendors. Check whether they are cloud-based or on-premises, are available on multiple platforms, and can integrate well with your existing tools and technologies.
  • Confirm that the tool can be customized to best fit your monitoring needs.
  • Ensure that your tool vendor has the resources and a great support team to help answer all your questions and accommodate your requests.

An APM tool offers several benefits in today's digital landscape, where even a slight delay can impact user experience and business profitability. APM helps you with:

  • Real-time tracking of application metrics: Monitor application response time, throughput, errors, and exceptions in real-time.
  • Instant alerts and reports: Receive immediate notifications and detailed reports to assess and monitor web application performance.
  • Proactive monitoring with AI-powered capabilities: Utilize AI-based alerting and anomaly detection for proactive monitoring and optimization of application performance.
  • Understanding performance under various scenarios: Gain insights into your application's performance in different scenarios and optimize it accordingly.
  • Enhanced user experience: Ensure a seamless user experience by promptly identifying and addressing performance issues.
  • Business Profitability: Improve the bottom line by minimizing delays and enhancing application performance, directly impacting user satisfaction and business success.
