Java applications that perform mission-critical tasks must meet targeted performance criteria. Failure to meet the criteria results in lost users and revenue. In order to ensure Java applications perform adequately, comprehensive Java performance analysis must be carried out continuously. To do so, a robust Java monitoring tool must be employed to gather performance data at baseline and peak loads. To generate defined loads, a load testing tool can be used. Captured performance data at baseline and peak loads can be compared against each other to identify and analyze anomalies that are not evident at sub-peak loads. This exercise can be done before a Java application goes into production to reduce performance issues when the application is live.
Java performance analysis solutions from Dynatrace
As a market-leading APM vendor, Dynatrace offers Java APM solutions for monitoring and analyzing Java application performance. Dynatrace’s solutions provide comprehensive monitoring and analysis through the entire application delivery chain. Dynatrace’s Java performance analysis and monitoring solutions are:
Dynatrace Application Monitoring, an end-to-end Java monitor that captures application transaction details for performance analysis. It incorporates Dynatrace’s PurePath Technology® to monitor code-level performance such as method calls, arguments, return values, SQL statements, and exceptions. It automatically models Java applications and discovers transactions to profile transaction execution for Java performance analysis.
Dynatrace Data Center RUM, a performance monitoring and analysis solution for enterprise application and infrastructure tiers in the data center. It captures performance metrics of application, middleware, and infrastructure components including network elements and packaged applications. For thorough Java performance analysis, it can correlate enterprise application performance with network performance to depict the contribution of network performance to application performance and availability.
Benefits of using Dynatrace for Java performance analysis
With Dynatrace’s powerful and comprehensive Java performance analysis solutions your organization can:
Shorten mean time to recovery – Dynatrace’s solutions help you quickly detect, isolate, and correct performance issues. With PurePath, transaction monitoring is continuous and always on allowing activity to be replayed for analysis – no more trying to reproduce production incidents in Dev or QA environments. Performance faults can be quickly discovered and isolated reducing troubleshooting and recovery time.
Improve productivity – Java performance analysis by Dynatrace improves productivity throughout the application delivery chain. Dynatrace solutions integrate with popular Java tools like Eclipse, Bamboo, and Jira to share performance and analysis data between development, testing, and operations teams thereby improving communication and productivity across the board. With proactive monitoring of tiers in the data center including Linux server monitoring, Dynatrace’s solutions improve data center productivity by reducing incidents and escalations freeing up IT resources for other initiatives.
Improve collaboration between business and application stakeholders – Transaction-level app performance monitoring and single lens reporting by Dynatrace allows Java performance analysis to be easily understood in the relevant contexts for business and application stakeholders.
