Unlocking the Black Box: Middleware

RTView provides in-depth visibility into the middleware layer a typical blind spot for most APM vendors.

Middleware is the glue that connects all of your software applications.  If these core platforms become overloaded or under-resourced, your application performance and availability will suffer.  Middleware monitoring is critical for anyone supporting middleware-powered applications.

FASTER PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION AND RESPONSE CAN REDUCE HIGH-SEVERITY INCIDENTS BY UP TO 

80%

Find it Fast. Fix it Fast. With SL RTView

Imagine if you could quickly find performance problems before they became high-severity events.  Think how quickly you could respond if you knew just where to look.  Now consider how much pain and financial loss you could avoid with early identification and rapid response.

With RTView, you could reduce high-severity events by 80% or more and save potentially millions of dollars in lost revenue and downtime costs.

End to End Middleware-centric Monitoring

Understand the impact of middleware problems on your critical applications with application and service-centric views.

  • Monitor dependencies and which middleware technologies and components support a critical business service.
  • Understand if a problem occurs in an application, how that will affect other components used by the service.
  • Correlate information across multiple middleware platforms
This single service summary displays all of the components used by this particular service.

Monitor a Single Middleware Technology - or All of Them

RTView Enterprise uses Solution Packages to gather and store performance metrics from different monitored technologies.

Solution Packages are prepackaged solutions for gathering metrics and data from specific technologies. Consisting of a real-time data adapter performing the collection, transformation, and aggregation of incoming data, RTView solution packages include an in-memory data cache, a rules engine, and a historian for aggregating and compacting historical data over time.

Each solution package includes pre-built dashboards and pre-configured alerts that seamlessly plug into the RTView monitor so that you can get up and running quickly without any programming.
