As the digital landscape continues to evolve, the performance of your web applications has never been more critical. With users relying on them for everyday tasks, it’s essential to deliver a seamless and high-quality experience. That’s where Application Performance Monitoring (APM) comes in. 

While rapid application development has become the norm, it can also introduce complexities that may impact your performance. With APM, you can quickly detect and resolve performance issues, ensuring your applications maintain their optimal performance levels. 

In this comprehensive article, we aim to delve into the key features of an APM tool and how they can be used to enhance the performance of your web applications. We will cover everything you need to know to take your digital strategy to the next level. By the end of this article, you will have a clear understanding of how APM can help you deliver high-quality web applications and achieve your business goals.  

So, without further ado, let’s dive in! 

What is Application Performance Monitoring? 

In today’s dynamic digital world, applications play a vital role in our lives and businesses. That’s why monitoring and managing their performance is crucial to delivering a seamless user experience and increasing revenue. 

Application Performance Monitoring (APM) is the process of keeping an eye on both the technical and perceived performance of your applications. As applications run on highly distributed infrastructure, monitoring their complex components can be challenging. But with the right APM tool, you can troubleshoot and manage performance with ease. 

According to Gartner, Application Performance Monitoring (APM) tools are software that meets three primary criteria –  

  • Frontend Monitoring 
  • Application Discovery, tracing, and diagnostics 
  • Analytics. 

At the Echelon Edge, we understand the importance of APM. That’s why we provide it as the functionality of our percipient NMS. Get ready to take your application performance to the next level with us. 

Key Features of Performance Monitoring Tool 

Introducing the crucial elements that form the backbone of a robust and efficient Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution. With these key features, you’ll have all the tools you need to optimize the performance of your web applications and deliver a top-notch user experience. Let’s explore the critical capabilities of an APM tool that can help your business stay ahead of the curve.

Here are the Key Features of APM tool
  • Dynamic Dashboard: The dashboard provides a real-time overview of an application’s performance metrics, such as response times, errors, resource utilization, and more. Additionally, it can be customized including adding or removing metrics, changing the layout, and more. This customization allows stakeholders to focus on the metrics that are most important to them and provides a clear and concise view of performance. 
  • Snapshot Correlation: By comparing multiple snapshots, APM can identify correlations between changes in performance data and the underlying cause of the changes. For example, if the response time of an application increases, the APM tool can compare the snapshots of performance data to determine the cause of the increase. This could be due to a change in the application code, an increase in traffic, or an issue with a dependent service. 
  • Proactive Alerts: Monitors the performance of an application and its underlying infrastructure in real-time, analyzing the performance metrics for any signs of issues. For example, a sudden increase in response time or a spike in error rates can automatically trigger an alert to the relevant teams. The alert can be in the form of an email, SMS, or push notification, depending on the configuration of the APM tool. 
  • Business Transaction Monitoring: APM tools use synthetic transactions to simulate real user interactions with an application. That enables organizations to monitor the performance of critical business transactions even when real users are not actively using the application. The APM tool records the performance metrics of the synthetic transactions. Furthermore, it provides detailed information about the performance of each component along the critical path. 
  • Automatic Mapping: Automatic mapping is a critical component of APM. Because it provides organizations with a clear and comprehensive view of their applications’ architecture. By automatically mapping the components of an application, organizations can easily identify the relationships between components and understand how they interact with one another. 

Deliver an Exceptional User Experience  

With our solution, you’ll be able to achieve complete visibility into your application’s infrastructure stack. This includes tracking and analyzing important business transactions, and tracing errors across various microservices. And comprehending the effect of external components on the performance of your application. 

Our solution provides you with the ability to monitor individual transactions across microservices and distributed architecture. This allows you to quickly identify and troubleshoot any errors, leading to a reduction in the meantime to detect (MTTD) and mean time to resolve (MTTR). 

Moreover, you’ll be able to measure specific user actions and identify potential bottlenecks that could negatively impact the end-user experience. Thus, by using our solution you’ll be able to ensure the seamless performance of your applications.
