Why manual performance management fails

Historically, manually setting up a monitoring system didn’t present a problem because neither the application code, nor the application infrastructure (middleware, app servers, etc.) changed very often. IT would provision a box, set its IP address, load some software, set up the monitoring and then never touch it again for years.  Nor was an application … continue reading

Drawbacks to building your own performance monitoring

Since traditional APM and monitoring tools were not designed for dynamic applications, a new set of open-source technologies emerged to help development teams manually setup their own monitoring through manual coding. Whether providing performance metrics, tracing paths of an application, or exposing other details of code, these open-source monitoring tool create their own sets of … continue reading

APMs are more important than ever for microservice-based architectures

Application performance management (APM) solutions need to adapt now that the age of monolithic applications has evolved into microservice-based architectures, which are innately distributed and complex and therefore harder to monitor.  Collecting vast troves of data on how apps are performing is no longer enough, and APM providers have been adding new ways to analyze … continue reading
