Editions

AppMon supports the entire application lifecycle in a single, integrated platform supporting the three core areas of the lifecycle: development, test, and production. The AppMon platform comes in production or pre-production/TestCenter editions.

Each edition is packaged with specific features and default settings, such as out-of-the-box dashboards, integrations, zero-configuration, and auto-adapting instrumentation to accelerate time to value for developers, testers, and operations personnel respectively. The specific features and default settings available for each edition are determined by the type of license applied to the product.

Production edition

The AppMon Production edition enables advanced application performance management for rapidly identifying and diagnosing problems in staging and production, which reduces the mean time to repair by as much as 90%. Identifying and resolving production performance issues with mission-critical applications can take days and could cost thousands of dollars per hour.

With the Production edition, you can manage mission-critical application performance in a 24x7 environment, capture critical diagnostics information at all times, provide exact root-cause analysis, and resolve Java/.NET issues in minutes instead of days. The AppMon always-on PurePath transaction tracing makes this all possible by letting you manage business transactions end-to-end and map application dependencies to quickly understand issue priorities. Performance diagnostics down to the code level provides rapid diagnosis of the root cause of issues. You can share PurePath information with all stakeholders to quickly reach consensus on issues and resolutions.

Pre-Production edition

The AppMon Pre-Production edition integrates with major commercial and open-source load testing solutions such as LoadRunner, SilkPerformer, and Visual Studio Team System to eliminate manual problem reproduction and cut lost productivity time by as much as 90%. With this edition, developers and test professionals can eliminate the multiple days it often takes to find, document, reproduce, diagnose, and resolve performance issues.

Using PurePath transaction tracing, AppMon provides in-depth code-level visibility into the performance of each individual transaction of all virtual users in large load tests of highly distributed applications. With AppMon, developers and test professionals can now automate and accelerate the process of documenting, diagnosing, and resolving performance issues in Java/.NET applications, allowing more time to be spent on strategic development and test activities.
