We recently rolled out version 10 of Applications Manager – our application performance management solution. The release was announced at VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas. Here is a quick heads up of the features and enhancements that have gone into this release.
Enhancements to End User Experience Monitoring
Applications Manager now provides the ability to monitor the performance of business-critical network services such as Ping, LDAP, DNS and mail server from multiple monitoring locations. These locations can either be enterprise branch offices or actual customer locations. This is in addition to the Real Browser Monitoring technology which is used to measure user experience of web applications using record and playback technology.
The previous Real Browser Monitor (RBM) has been renamed as End User Monitor (EUM). The pricing structure has also undergone a change – from agent-based pricing to a flat-fee model. Read more >>
Mapping VMware resources with vCenter for better configuration management
Applications Manager now enables you to discover your entire virtual infrastructure through vCenter server and automatically model them the same way they are configured in vCenter. The VMware components can be classified into components such as data centers, clusters, ESX/ESXi hosts, VMs, etc.
Other notable enhancements in version 10.0 include:
- Support for monitoring Amazon S3 buckets
- Server monitoring enhancements such as support for viewing server configuration parameters, split up of CPU utilization by CPU cores and more.
- Web client enhancements including the ability to configure custom fields, customize tabs and a lighter look and feel for the client.
- IPV6 support for most monitor types
