Passive network sensors capturing application transactions to provide insights without any impediment to application performance or security.
Flowmon APM is independent of the application server, database or operating system, and is well-suited for heterogeneous environments.
Get actionable application performance metrics in minutes. Configuration takes three easy steps.
Do not lose revenue over critical application degradation. Flowmon is time and cost-efficient, usually reaching break-even point within weeks.
By collecting performance metrics on user, network, application and database behavior, and correlating what happens at each point, the APM is able to locate the source of issues regardless of environment.
Prevent danger from escalating and act before users start suffering from degradations.
Incidents are detected in real time and displayed as context-rich events to provide clear guidance for appropriate remediation.
The system clearly shows whether incidents originate from the network or application and helps the two teams to optimize investigation.
Flowmon APM collects information for all users and user transactions at any given moment. It tracks interactions between users and application servers as well as application and database servers.
The collected metrics are then correlated and provide information about which element along the application delivery chain is causing delays and where bottlenecks may lie.
The main performance metrics are Application Response Time measuring the delay caused by the application and Transport Time which represents a delay introduced on the network level.
The data is expanded by additional transaction details such as the full SQL statement and full URLs, as well as size, IP address, session ID, username, browser information and server status code. This provides plenty of information for troubleshooting and optimization.
The system computes one main metric, which is the APM index. It is derived from the Application Response Time for all transactions and expresses the fulfilment of the user-defined SLA as a percentage score. It’s a quick and easy way to get a global view of the application’s performance and to know when the SLA is not being met. Additional metrics are available, including response time of 99% and 95% from the transactions, median as well as multitudes of SLAs.
Flowmon APM contains the Transaction Generator, which simulates user behavior and reports on SLA. Its main purpose is the automated testing of business-critical HTTP and HTTPS applications.
The module executes a set of test scenarios (Selenium) over defined time plans. The outcome is an SLA report (availability), scenario result (success/failure), and more data to provide an excellent early-warning system that works in off-peak times.
All this information is displayed on the dashboard - a highly customizable information space with detailed widgets and drill-down options all in a single view. Different dashboards can be created for each application or user, complete with adjustable user permissions.
The dashboard also features alerting capabilities and the option to set up regular reports to always stay informed on application status and degradations.
The main differentiator of measuring application transactions on the network is that it is unintrusive, and therefore does not hinder performance or present a security threat and it can be deployed anywhere in 30 minutes.
