Looking for software to monitor your applications?
In this article, we cover all you need to know about monitoring applications, the difference between application monitoring and application performance monitoring (APM), and how you can monitor your applications with ease.
Introduction to application monitoring
Application monitoring is the procedure of gathering log data in order to assist developers to monitor application availability, bugs, resource consumption, and performance changes that have an impact on the end-user experience (UX).
It’s about understanding and tracking dependencies across your distributed system to reveal anomalies, minimize latency, fix problems, and improve the customer experience.
Application monitoring solutions provide notifications for live abnormalities, as well as distributed tracing so you can identify which events create a causal chain that led to them across multiple services
The goal is to maintain and improve the quality of an app by detecting issues early on. This allows developers to fix these issues before they cause any major problems or harm to the app’s reputation.
Monitoring applications is inexpensive, designed to catch major issues, and should be the basis for any monitoring endeavor.
Application monitoring is different from Application Performance Monitoring APM in that it focuses more on the availability and health of an application, while APM monitors and analyzes the performance of an application.
Performance monitoring is the process of tracking and analyzing the performance of an application. This includes measuring factors such as response time, resource usage, and throughput.
Performance monitoring is important because it allows developers to identify and fix any issues that may be affecting the performance of their app. It also helps developers to optimize their app.
Monitoring performance makes it possible to understand how the end-user experiences availability and the app’s response time. Built into the Ceeview software stack you find various application performance monitoring solutions.
Availability and Health Monitoring
Availability monitoring is the process of tracking and measuring the uptime of an application. If an application stops working or becomes unavailable, it can cause major problems for users. Proper availability monitoring detects these issues and alerts the necessary people so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible. Some tools on the market also have the ability to auto-correct issues detected.
Application Health monitoring identifies the application health in the present moment. This includes factors such as memory usage, internal application performance metrics, CPU usage, and network traffic. By monitoring these factors, developers can quickly identify any issues that may be affecting the health of their app.
Monitoring applications the Ceeview way
Ceeview is a comprehensive solution that helps you monitor the availability, health, and performance of your applications in real-time thru an application monitoring dashboard.
Monitoring across layers
Ceeview links the IT infrastructure with the application layer to make sure the health of all IT infrastructure components plays well with the application running on the infrastructure.
If the application itself reports an error, it may be difficult to identify what caused the issue. Since Ceeview also operates on the IT infrastructure layer, Ceeview will identify in milliseconds if the IT infrastructure had anything to do with the issue, and pinpoint the exact component which caused the problem.
On the layer above the applications, we have the different services running – based on 1 or more apps. And as mentioned earlier – on the layer below the apps we have the IT infrastructure. Ceeview integrates with all 3 layers which makes it possible to interconnect and detect every possible scenario which may lead to an issue or problem with one or more of the apps running.
Our application monitoring includes dependency mapping and modeling which is a critical part of application performance management. By visualizing the connections between services, you may identify any issues with your IT infrastructure that are affecting the performance of your app by modeling user behavior.
From the user’s perspective
Our unique approach to application monitoring allows you to view your applications through your users’ eyes, allowing you to deliver a first-class digital experience.
It’s insufficient to know your software is up; you must also be aware that your customers are receiving a positive user experience free of performance issues, outages, and delays.
Full-stack application monitoring
Ceeview’s full-stack application monitoring solution allows you to discover, diagnose, and resolve developing application problems in real-time, whether they are front-end, back-end, or in the cloud.
Auto-generated alerts delivered through multiple communication channels including email, SMS, and push messages ensure the right people are aware of application issues as soon as they occur, and alerts are automatically escalated if not responded to.
Synthetic Transaction monitoring
Ceeview mimics common user actions to simulate the performance of your services in the real world, allowing you to detect potential issues before your customers do, ensuring a flawless and uninterrupted digital experience.
