Broadcom DX Application Performance Management Review

Proactive monitoring capabilities, changing the way you think and act

I've found that APM is an excellent tool for giving companies pro-active monitoring and alerting capability.

If used correctly it gives you the ability to get the jump on system / application issues based on performance thresholds. That 5-10 minute gap between identifying something is going wrong to something is wrong is critical for reducing impact to customers being either internal or external.

It really takes a lot of in depth understanding of your applications to get the best out of this tool, something that many organisations don't have. On that note, this tool can give them that ability.

It takes a lot to configure and what you get out of it is dependent on what you put in. Something that in-depth planning is definitely required.

Hi Peter,
Could you please let us know what Application stack you are monitoring like SAP, Java or .net Apps and DB. I think 5-10 min latency is very Huge for financial firms which might cause heavy loss to organization and impact Business, which should be ideally cut down to some thing in seconds which APM is not capable currently.

In CA APM, all agents and monitors send metrics to the Enterprise Manager, where they are aggregated every 15 seconds and made available APM users. CA APM is used by many of the large enterprise customers to collect and report millions of metrics every 15 seconds.

For example, a large Communications Service Provider is currently using CA APM to monitor over 20,000 JVMs across multiple datacenters, capturing almost 22,000,000 metrics every 15 seconds, reporting into over 300 Enterprise Managers, many of which are in the customer’s internal cloud.
