AppInternals Xpert

OPNET's AppInternals Xpert delves into the complex software frameworks of modern servers to extract vast amounts of performance and forensic data to support all aspects of application performance management from the server perspective.

AppInternals Xpert can provide valuable analysis for any type of application, but excels in particular in Java and .NET environments. It continuously monitors thousands of system and application metrics within each server, across all application tiers, and automatically spots performance anomalies.

AppInternals Xpert uses unique technology to provide deep instrumentation with very low overhead. Its patented correlation technology automatically detects patterns in metrics and events, revealing cause-and-effect relationships and pinpointing issues that might otherwise go undetected. AppInternals Xpert also utilizes advanced, low-overhead continuous tracing techniques to provide deep visibility into application code as it executes.

Key Features:

  • 24x7 high resolution monitoring of key application components (Java, .NET, databases, Web Services)
  • Thousands of application and system measurements are automatically correlated across multiple tiers to reveal unknown sources of application performance problems
  • Deep transaction tracing enables a detailed analysis of execution times at the method level, and identifies specific JDBC or ADO calls and SQL statements that are responsible for application performance problems
  • Memory analysis and real-time memory leak detection
  • Insight into physical resource consumption of guest VMs enabling proactive identification of performance issues related to insufficient VMware provisioning
  • Real-time dashboards visualize key performance indicators for your critical applications
