What is Application Monitoring?
Applications are the front end of IT infrastructure, powering an organization’s business activity and serving employees and customers. Maintaining availability and fast response times for these applications is vital to business success. Application monitoring tools map dependencies between applications and the IT infrastructure that supports them and then collects data on application availability, health and performance. This data can include resource and memory usage, latency and throughput. IT operations teams use the data to prevent outages and performance bottlenecks, keeping business operations running smoothly.
The OpsRamp platform captures and aggregates critical availability and performance metrics for open source and commercial applications. OpsRamp’s application monitoring capabilities include both agent-based and agentless approaches, delivering rapid root cause analysis for performance issues. Agent-based monitoring offers granular metrics for application health visibility and dependency mapping for real-time impact analysis. Agentless monitoring enables the quick collection of application performance metrics without any management overhead. The OpsRamp AIOps engine correlates alerts and metrics to aid in prioritization and troubleshooting.
