Fault management, in Applications Manager enables you to gain end to end visibility in your applications so that you can quickly troubleshoot identified problems.
"Applications Manager enables us to act very quickly to fix performance problems and our end users don't even notice any changes" - Vadim Rapoport, Techi Comptg Advr, DBA Sempra Utilities
For pooling the resources of a location or a business application, you can create a new monitor group by grouping all associated infrastucture ( Databases, app servers etc). This way you can easily map the performance/availability dependency of each component on a business application or a location as whole.
Using root cause analysis you can detect anomalies and isolate possible problems by understanding their dependency to troubleshoot faster. With APM Insight, you can gain real-time visibility into an application code or an SQL query to easily identify transaction bottlenecks and performance hiccups.
You can monitor the gradual performance degradation by defining anomaly profiles on performance metrics. Using this, you can define rules and compare present data with the earlier best recorded one. Anomaly profiles can be created based on baseline values and custom expressions.
An alarm generated in the system is assigned a severity and is notified appropriately. When an error is detected, it can be notified immediately by configuring an action. Applications Manager supports the following actions:
Also, JMX Notifications and SNMP Traps can be received in Applications Manager and they can trigger the actions configured.
Plan the infrastructure capacity for peak hours with insights into historical data or by using synthetic transaction monitoring. These extensive reports depict the availability, health and response time of an application over a specified period of time.
Applications Manager's iPhone App and Android App allows you to track critical applications, perform actions, receive alerts and identify issues on your smartphones. With on-the-go monitoring you can reduce the time for resolution of a fault occurring in your system, thereby increasing the overall availability of your business services.
