APM (Application Performance Management) traditionally focused on DevOps tools which help developers supporting custom code find issues within that code.

New APM solutions are needed that work for every application and help the Ops team support every application in production

Therefore, a new category is needed. This new category of solutions is called Application Operations or AppOps. Focused on Operations staff who are responsible for supporting all physical, virtual & cloud applications, running across every platform, and every source. The key attributes: ability to measure performance of every application in production and find problems in the infrastructure.

    • 1. The Need for Application Operations in the Dynamic Data Center and the Cloud Bernd Herzog, Analyst – APM Experts
    • 2. From DevOps to AppOps • APM (Application Performance Management) traditionally focused on DevOps tools which help developers supporting custom code find issues within that code • New APM solutions are needed that work for every application and help the Ops team support every application in production
    • 3. AppOps This new category of solutions is called Application Operations or AppOps • Focused on Operations staff who are responsible for supporting all physical, virtual & cloud applications, running across every platform, and every source • Key attributes: ability to measure performance of every application in production and find problems in the infrastructure
    • 4. Dynamic Data Center Challenges Agile Development creates rapidly changing applications Running on next generation deployment platforms Your Cloud Built in diverse languages and running on diverse language runtimes Deployed on multiple virtualization platforms Hybrid Cloud Public Cloud Located in multiple clouds with multiple owners
    • 5. Criteria for Virtualization and Cloud Aware APM Broad Application Platform Support • Due to virtualization, there is now a requirement that IT teams have a tool that measures application response time across every applications system • If an enterprise has both custom and purchased applications, two tool are likely necessary • One that understands all of the applications in production (AppOps) • One that can find problems with code in production (DevOps)
    • 6. Criteria for Virtualization and Cloud Aware APM Real-Time and Comprehensive Data Collection • Credible monitoring solutions must collect data in the following manner: • Real-time data collection • Continuous collection to eliminate gaps in visibility and keep up with the environment • Comprehensive data collection • Time series, resource utilization, and logs • Deterministic data collection • • Data that comes from a management API is subject to sampling and averaging APM solutions must collect their own data to ensure accuracy
    • 7. Criteria for Virtualization and Cloud Aware APM Root Cause Analysis • Inference from resource utilization data • Statistical correlation of response time, throughput and resource utilization metrics • Deterministic root cause Continue to build, and we will continue to measure.
    • 8. Criteria for Virtualization and Cloud Aware APM • Dynamic Discovery of Apps and Their Topology • Zero Initial and Ongoing Configuration • Continuous, End-to-End Measurement of Application Response Time • Cross Virtualization Platform Support • Public Cloud Ready • Automatic and Dynamic Baselining Continue to build, and we will continue to measure.
    • 9. ROI from Application Performance Management Continue to build, and we will continue to measure. For any organization putting a performance critical or revenue generating application in a virtual or cloud based environment, it is essential to ensure the performance of that app.
    • 10. Conclusions Monitoring performance (response time) of a business critical application in virtualized and cloud based environments should be implemented as follows: • End-to-end and hop-by-hop though entire sequence of processes, servers, and networks of the system • Fixed topology for an application cannot be assumed, but rather discovered continuously and automatically • APM solutions must address the problems created by virtualization plus the ones associated with having an organizational boundary between the application and the infrastructure
    • 11. Conclusions • Synchronize applications development and applications monitoring strategies • Cloud computing means that APM solutions should be able to travel with an application as it moves between internal and external data centers • Cloud computing will also increase the demand for infrastructure performance management and app performance management solutions • Moving an app into a virtualized or cloud based environment is an opportunity to kill legacy, complex, expensive APM solutions • Virtualized, cloud-aware APM solutions are required
    • 12. About AppFirst • AppFirst collects actual application performance data from every application in the environment, log data, and resource utilization data from the software infrastructure that supports the applications • It is therefore the only AppOps focused solution in which both the app performance data and the data about what caused performance degradation are in the same place, giving AppFirst a market leading ability to do root cause analysis • AppFirst is able to deliver what was previously enormously expensive to purchase and enormously time consuming to implement in a simple service that works out of the box
    • 13. About APM Experts • Bernd is the CEO of APM Experts, a consulting and analysis firm focusing advising enterprises upon next generation management software strategies, and upon advising vendors upon their product and marketing strategies • Bernd was formerly a Gartner Group Research Director focusing upon the Windows Server operating system, CEO of RTO Software, VP of Products of Netuitive and has been involved in vendor and IT strategy since 1980
