Java is a widely adopted technology for developing and running business-critical applications. These applications have high performance and availability requirements due to the nature of the business transactions they fulfill. Consequently, any issues with performance and availability of Java applications negatively impact an organization’s bottom-line such as reduced revenue from online sales. In order to ensure that Java applications meet performance requirements, Java application monitoring must be employed to consistently measure performance metrics so that any reduction in performance can be detected and remedied.
Monitoring of Java performance can be done using Java monitoring tools that are available with APM solutions. These tools enable organizations to measure the performance of Java applications throughout the development, testing, and production cycles. The main goals of Java application monitoring are:
Dynatrace technology and products allow organizations to maximize ROI on their Java applications by ensuring that applications perform optimally. With its patented PurePath Technology®, Dynatrace monitors all transactions made by Java applications tracing each transaction end-to-end, across JVMs and databases, and presenting them visually across all tiers. Execution times of methods and SQL statements, response times of database calls and web servers, and thread dumps all captured by Dynatrace provide the information necessary to find the root-cause of performance problems.
In addition to Java application monitoring, Dynatrace also monitors PHP and .NET performance. With Dynatrace, comprehensive monitoring of popular web application technologies, databases, and enterprise systems as well as third-party web APIs and CDNs is achievable so as to maximize ROI on these technologies and services.
