Slides from my ignite talk at DevOpDays 2010 in Hamburg. I showed in 5 minutes why DevOps needs a tool like AppDynamics for ensuring that more and more frequent changing environments need application performance monitoring that can adopt itself to changing applications.
I highly recommend to give AppDynamics a spin if you are running on Java, since there is a free version and a 30day trial of the full product available.
I did also publish 2 screencasts on installing and using the lite edition on our blog: http://blog.codecentric.de/en/2010/08/easy-performance-analysis-with-appdynamics-lite/
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
