The First Meeting Monitoring of applications and their resources, such as databases and web services, has been provided for since the mid-1960’s predominately by the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)17. The SNMP protocol, and its attendant technologies, are limited in the number of metrics and the frequency that they may be delivered to a monitoring workstation. It is also difficult to implement an interface between the internals of an application and SNMP for applications that are already developed.

My experience is that it evolves in bursts and always a little earlier than your schedule anticipates. My goal is to ensure that you know exactly what needs to be done next in order to move consistently towards the realization of an APM initiative. Let’s now look at what each iteration of a phased deployment includes for an APM initiative. Initial Iteration The goal in the initial iteration is to get a deployed footprint on a few key applications. You need to focus on a conservative monitoring configuration, as there is often little or no time (or no interest) to do a full validation.

Subtracting that from the time the system could do useful work, and dividing that calculation by the total time the system could do useful work. Improving uptime by reducing downtime is often the primary goal of many IT organizations. Limitations of Availability Monitoring In the 1960s and 1970s, batch processing operations were the dominant form of computing activities. Batch processes are scheduled activities; they often have a number of dependencies, frequently other batch processes. Let’s consider a simple example: Before the billing process can begin, all regional billing data has to be transferred to a certain file system.
