Application performance monitoring with System Center 2012 R2


Published on

Using OpsMgr we have a good idea what the health state of our infrastructure is but we need to support a bunch of application that our user need on a day to day basis. Monitoring just the infrastructure components is not good enough anymore. Walter Eikenboom will be talking about all new features in Operations Manager R2 and showing you how to implementing SLA monitoring for your application and how to start and configure Application Performance Monitoring so we can close the black holes in our desired 360 view of applications. If you want to get a complete insight on your apps start using APM with OpsMgr 2012 R2 today!!

  12. 12. Operations Manager and DevOps Monitoring applications (since 2000) • Monitored “outside” the application, looked at events and performance data • Not much insight into the app itself Monitoring distributed applications (2007/2007 R2) • Still looking at “outside” of app – observing app behavior via event log and performance counters .NET Application Performance Monitoring (2012) • Operations Manager can look “inside” app - tell whether problems are infrastructure or app DevOps Management Packs (2012 SP1) • Monitoring wider range of apps (NT Services, MVC, WCF, and SharePoint) • Availability monitoring (Global Service Monitor) • Enabled DevOps - IT can handle app problems efficiently and collaborate with development Java APM (2012 R2) • Monitoring Java application (Jbos, Tomcat, WebLogic, Websphere) • System Center Advisor (attached service) • Enhanced TFS integration / Intellitrace
