Introducing the eMite 'SCOM – GOMEZ – SPLUNK' Correlation Extension Creating incremental value from existing tools. So, you have deployed your Gomez APM solution and the value that you are seeing in being able to understand your application performance is fantastic. You’re no longer flying blind and everything is humming along really well, right? Well, not quite.
It’s 9:00am and the application starts running slow. Thank goodness your APM solution has told you, before your users did. But, you have no idea why. So, you call the server team and they take a look at server performance data from SCOM.
It’s now 9:10 and they tell you the servers are running fine. So, you ask them to check databases and nothing’s wrong here either.
It’s now 9:20 and your application is getting slower. You get a call from the server team who use SPLUNK to scour logs and they have now discovered a web service has been intermittently throwing errors. It seems that this is linked to your slow performance.
It’s now 9:35 and your web server is back running by 9:45.
All up, you’ve been down for 45 minutes.
How many of these types of errors do you get every month?
eMite adds a layer of intelligence these above your existing solutions to drastically reduce these types of incidents, providing two key values.
1. Reduce the Mean Time to Repair
Because eMite has already correlated the performance data from your APM tool to the server performance, application logs and transactional databases, when you see slow performance, you will see the cause. This will reduce the time that it takes to determine the problem by quickly pin-pointing root cause.
2. Reduce The Total Number of Incidents
The biggest value is that as eMite trends metrics and predicts when a particular metric will breach its threshold in the future. So, if the volume of transactions in your application increases over time, eMite is going to tell you at what point your application performance is going to impact your revenue. So, rather than reacting to outages, you will be able to avoid them well in advance.
