In today’s software-defined business era, uptime and availability are key
to the business survival. The application is the business. However, ensuring
proper application performance remains a daunting task for their production
environments, where do you start?
Enter Business Transactions.
By starting to focus on the end-user experience and measuring application
performance based on their interactions, we can correctly gauge how the
entire environment is performing. We follow each individual user request as
it flows through the application architecture, comparing the response time to
its optimal performance. This inside-out strategy allows AppDynamics to
instantly identify performance bottlenecks and allows application owners to
get to the root-cause of issues that much faster.
By becoming business transaction-centric application owners can ensure uptime

In my first post, I discussed how software and various tools are dramatically
changing the Ops department. This post centers on the automation process.
When I was younger, you actually had to build a server from scratch, buy
power and connectivity in a data center, and manually plug a machine into the
network. After wearing the operations hat for a few years, I have learned
many operations tasks are mundane, manual, and often have to be done at two
in the morning once something has gone wrong. DevOps is predicated on the
idea that all elements of technology infrastructure can be c... (more)
Our users tell us all the time: The AppDynamics platform is amazing right out
of the box. But everybody has something special they want to do, whether
it’s to add some functionality, set up a unique monitoring scenario,

important and useful. The functionality of the AppDynamics machine agent can
be customized and extended to perform specific tasks to meet specific user
needs, either through existing extensions from the AppDynamics Exchange or
through user customizations.
It helps to understand what the mac... (more)
