Application Monitoring for Real World Environments

Friday March 22, 2013 11:00 AM ET/ 8:00 AM PT


Application Monitoring is great in theory, but what about in Production? Efficient, scalable application monitoring that maintains high availability while providing performance data is a balancing act. Full application performance monitoring suites can sometimes exact too high a performance penalty for IT operations.

GroundWork experts will discuss these trade-offs and share lessons from customers on how to make it work. Topics covered at this webinar will include:
  • Inside-out and outside-in methods
  • Common mistakes first-timers make
  • The role of the synthetic transaction
This brief webinar will educate and inform both experts and beginners in the field of Application Monitoring.

Who should attend:
  • IT directors
  • Administrators
  • Decision Makers
