  8. 8. Public Information Company and Background • One of the largest personal lines insurance companies in the United States • Big TIBCO footprint: more than 5000 applications running on TIBCO • Integration environment is mainly TIBCO EMS, TIBCO BusinessWorks, and Kafka. Moving to BW Container Edition for some use cases. SL Case Study 8
  9. 9. Public Information Challenge • TIBCO EMS is critical to operations and is the central point to all enterprise transactions. Message traffic of 150 billion messages/month • If there is an issue with EMS, it causes a major impact on all parts of the business. • Time to recover from a Severity 1 outage used was 3 days to get back up and running. Another month of cleaning up. • Conservative cost of a Severity 1 outage to the business is $4,000,000 including lost revenue SL Case Study 9
  10. 10. Public Information Challenge • August 8th – 10th 2017, the Company experienced a Sev1 outage on several key customer facing applications • During the event EMS queues backed up and overall EMS performance was impacted • No true root cause was identified even after months of investigation from both internal and external resources • Investigation was painstakingly manual and very speculative • Unrelated impacts to EMS infrastructure experienced months later were inaccurately tied to this event The Day We Found Out We Can’t See What’s Going On! SL Case Study 1
  11. 11. Public Information Solution: The Day We Turned the Lights On! • October 10th 2017, the Company licensed a version of RTView available to them through TIBCO • With this limited license, they were able to view their most critical EMS servers • Within days, they saw value in understanding how queues were being leveraged • Significant network outages began to occur on Dec. 31,2017 that impacted EMS infrastructure • These sporadic issues occurred over several months in 2018 - RTView provided staff with an immediate view of critical segments • This information allowed the support teams to focus on where the actual issues were SL Case Study 11
  12. 12. Public Information Results • Reduced Severity 1 incidents due to performance and throughput issues from an average of 2 per year to 0 since implementing RTView • Cost of a Severity 1 incident estimated by Company conservatively at $4,000,000 US$ • Reduced annual trouble tickets by over 90% from 30,000 to 400 • Improved MTTR (Mean time to Repair) • Assuming a $300,000 licensing cost for the software and $60,000 for annual support, breakeven could be as low as 15 days SL Case Study 12
  13. 13. Public Information The Future Continues to be Bright! • October 11th 2018, the Company extended the limited RTView license from TIBCO and approved usage of RTView Enterprise Edition licensed from SL • They now monitor all production EMS instances • It is currently being leveraged for Apache Kafka as well “RTView continues to be a beacon for our support staff to proactively identify issues before they are impactful” SL Case Study 13

Editor's Notes

  • We are seeing a lot of innovation here this week. AND in order to take advantage of a new technology you need to be able to monitor it.

    One of our customers, a large US airline company, told us last month:
    “The first thing management asks when we want to adopt a new technology is ‘how are you going to monitor it?’ If you don’t have monitoring for that, it’s a showstopper. “

    So monitoring is becoming more important, not less at the same time that architectures are becoming more elastic and dynamic.

  • Here’s a Pattern we see repeated when RTView Introduced

    But … outages happen to other people !
  • RTView – so they could centralize monitoring and alerting for all TIBCO middleware across all environments, adding additional technologies as well. In the future, they will add the service model capability to monitor those applications.

    Which is a good segue to the next section!
  • Turnkey monitoring and alerting: pre-built displays and pre-configured alerts
  • TIBCO RTView Version 7 was recently announced in May. Available on your TIBCO download site
    New html 5 UI

    New alert detail and vastly improved usability

    New Component Overview displays to see the most important key metrics, alerts, and historical trends for each monitored technology
  • Turnkey monitoring and alerting: pre-built displays and pre-configured alerts

  • Why is it becoming so much more difficult to monitor applications?

    Well, modern applications are built on a variety of technologies including messaging middleware, brokers, Java, Tomcat, containers, and databases. Usually from a variety of different vendors.

    Too many alerts. How to see in context ?

    What components affect what services ?

  • So the common approach of using a different monitoring console for each technology just doesn’t work anymore.

    What you want is a non-intrusive way to monitor the applications and services but one that provides deep visibility into the supporting middleware which is often a Blackbox to monitor.

    Traditional monitoring tools, including APM, have very limited capability to look into these systems. For example, you can’t see inside TIBCO BusinessWorks with APM tools which only monitor at the level of the JVM. And you can’t look into your JMS queues without injecting code which requires re-writing and re-compiling your applications.
  • Why you need Enterprise Edition

    See all technologies combined into single console. Non-intrusive monitoring with no agents. Here are some example views:

    20 Applications -- EMS and BW Components organized by App

    Component Utilization scaled to “Normal” -- Analytics on Key Metrics

    At a glance see any areas where trouble might be brewing.

    Proactive Centralized Alerting
    End-To-End Views
    Supports Large Environments
  • Real Application Visibility to predict infrastructure at risk within an application or service

    See the health of all infrastructure components in the context of your application. Identify stress points over time for each component with this history heatmap.

    Understand how a component problem can affect other components upstream and downstream.
  • 2 different types of alerts

    Service-based alerting is available in SL’s RTView Enterprise. Its great because it can really cut down on alert overload and fatigue. It enables app support teams to only get the alerts they care about and to prioritize alerts on business criticality of the service.

    Component-based alerts are grouped by technology for an TIBCO support team or operations user.
  • RTView Enterprise also includes access to RTView Cloud.

    RTView Cloud uses a hybrid architecture to enable you to create custom dashboards and views to share with your internal audiences.

    This self-service capability enables your internal users to get the right information to the right people at the right time. No programming is required and your data remains securely behind your firewall.

    RTView  real-time data collection, analysis, and visualization

    RTView Cloud -> sharing the information

  • Empower Users with Self-Service Tools

    Organization Model with Multiple Users

    Share Information – Custom - Flexible

    Interactive Simple interface

    Highly flexible deployment options
