JINSPIRED BV, the leader in application performance management (APM) for the metered cloud and enterprise, today announced version 6.3 of its innovative software activity based resource metering & costing solution, JXInsight/OpenCore. Coming just 6 months after the publication of its ground breaking 6.3 release, “Intelligent Activity Metering (IAM)”, this version includes many new powerful extensions to its performance measurement and consumption control runtime offering call/api usage detail record (UDR) creation & storage capabilities, as well as greater integration support for continuous performance management (CPM), performance testing and software behavioral analytics & reporting via new offline metering and metrics model inspection support in its proposed industry standard Open API.

“Today software engineers in delivering shared IT services, in the cloud or enterprise, need to not only manage code and its performance but its financial cost, resource consumption and the revenue associated with the activity driving such workloads. JXInsight/OpenCore 6.3 addresses this by delivering the first enterprise software call/resource usage accounting solution for the Java platform built on top of its uniquely scalable and powerful intelligent activity based costing & metering runtime that offers near seamless integration with existing revenue management solutions including those used for internal billing & chargeback purposes.” said Rod Peacock, JINSPIRED founder & director of business development. “In 6.3 we have extended the utility of our measurement model and its Open API, which today is largely used to dynamically self regulate the behavior of code in the most demanding of environments such as trading and gaming platforms, to application performance testing by supporting the introspection of metering model via the same online Open API. This is of particular interest to those adopting a continuous performance management process”
