How SpyGlass Tracer meets APM requirements
According to many of the industry's top experts this is the list of 15 top reason why APM projects fail.
1. Organizational Silos: SpyGlass Tracer exports applicative metrics in standard formats to be aggregated with network and database information for a complete view of architecture performance. Our philosophy is to be able to extract application data exporting them to specialized application with the goal of aggregating and assembling them in the right way.
2. Not Focusing on Business Impact of APM: SpyGlass Tracer offers directives to extract and monitor application data along with application performance metrics. This will ensure a business-and-technical perspective in all transactions.
3. APM-Generated Big Data: SpyGlass Tracer is designed to limit data presented to user underlining critical events and removing noise. Realtime and offline reporting helps user to elaborate aggregated views with limited effort.
4. Dashboard Complexity: SpyGlass Tracer limit dashboard complexity with the ability to customize information for a specific application and use working as an embedded component more than a universal monitoring tool.
5. Rapid Rollouts/6. Complicated Deployment and Maintenance: nothing can be simpler than SpyGlass Tracer deployment. Add an option to a JVM startup script and connect to exported JMX to see data.
7. Project Scope: SpyGlass Tracer has a specific and well defined functions. You cannot use it in a wrong way. It's ability to operate as simple monitor agent allowing you to use any metric aggregator you like move big data problem to well known enterprise solutions.
8. Today's Dynamic IT Environment and Advanced Applications: SpyGlass Tracer operates on any Java stack. It's ability to export metrics with no effort, move APM complexity to data aggregator leaving large flexibility to the application layer. Various edition of SpyGlass tracer can operate on any available environment.
9. APM in Isolation: SpyGlass Tracer is designed to be integrated with standard protocols everywhere they are managed.
10. Setting Expectations Too High: this is a requirement problem more than a technical issue. SpyGlass Tracer can extract data from your transactions, then you have to be able to use them.
11. Management Gaps: SpyGlass Tracer is designed to operate on simple concepts as applicative transaction, application component, software component and so on. Data are aggregated and can be navigate with drill down operation to discover minimal details.
12. Inaccurate Service Maps: SpyGlass Tracer operates at application level working with all available precision to pinpoint problem source.
13. Too Much Overhead: SpyGlass Tracer is designed to be light (less than 2%).
14. Missing the Big Picture: to avoid this problem SpyGlass Tracer extract data and export them to any available aggregator to present them in any required form.
15. Choosing the Wrong APM Product: SpyGlass Tracer is probably the most versatile APM product in the small business market.tags: SpyGlass Tracer Application Performance Management APM
