Application performance management – standard & individual
WHAT IS APPLICATION MANAGEMENT?
Application management (also known as application performance monitoring or apm) ensures that all applications (standard software or web applications) perform as expected. This technique evaluates the performance of the applications and checks if everything is running smoothly.
TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF APPLICATION MANAGEMENT
When it comes to application performance monitoring, there are two different kinds to choose from:
- Standard application management
- Individual web application management
A recent trend in the area of monitoring solutions for individual web applications involves the use of cloud-based tools like New Relic and AppDynamics, which can monitor the performance of highly complex web applications at the source code level. Administrators and IT teams in SMEs, however, are less concerned by these tools; what they need are monitoring solutions which can monitor standard applications such as databases, mail servers, and firewalls.
