Why is Java Performance Monitoring Needed?

Many server-side applications are written in Java and process tens of millions of requests per day. Key applications in various domains like finance, healthcare, insurance and education are Java-based. When these applications slow down, they affect the user experience and in turn, reduce business revenue.

IT operations, application operations and DevOps teams often spend days troubleshooting Java application performance issues. Since Java applications are multi-threaded and involve multi-tier architectures, it is a challenge to identify whether the problem is due to the client, the network, in the JVM, in the application code, with the SQL query, or in the underlying infrastructure. Monitoring of the Java application stack end-to-end is necessary to ensure peak application performance and user satisfaction.

Why is Java Performance Monitoring Challenging?

Java Performance Monitoring
  • Java infrastructures are multi-tiered: Interdependencies between tiers make problem diagnosis a challenge. When a user complains of slowness, which tier is the cause of the problem: Web, Java, application code, database?
  • Java applications are virtualized: Applications are being deployed on virtual machines (VMs), containers, as microservices, or in the cloud. Resource contention among these components can lead to application slowdowns.
  • Java application frameworks are many and varied: Performance issues can arise from several server-side and client-side processing frameworks that are being used to accelerate application development.

Full Stack Java Monitoring with eG Enterprise

eG Enterprise provides a powerful and easy-to-use set of Java performance monitoring tools that address the key needs of IT operations, Application operations and DevOps teams.

  • Application topology views and layer-wise drilldowns of each tier help IT personnel easily demarcate the cause of the problem - i.e., is it in an infrastructure issue (e.g., under-sized VM, or a slow disk) that is affecting the application, or is it due to an application issue? This information can be used to immediately get the right domain expert involved in troubleshooting.
  • For application operations and development teams, if the slowness is due in the application layers, eG Enterprise provides ready answers: is it due to malfunctioning application code, remote method services that are responding slowly, blocked or deadlocked threads, memory heap issues in the JVM, or runaway threads consuming high CPU? Detailed code-level stack traces are available for application developers to immediately identify where the bottlenecks in their application code are and fix them.

What eG Enterprise
offers for Java Performance Monitoring

Monitoring for Everything Java

  • Automatically discover Java application components and interdependencies
  • Detect user experience issues in real-time: report on pages affected, locations impacted, and more
  • Trace business transactions hop-by-hop to isolate which tier (web front-end, application server, database) is causing slowness
  • Get deep diagnostics for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and containers such as Tomcat, JBoss EAP, WildFly, WebLogic, WebSphere, GlassFish, and more
  • Isolate server, storage, network and virtualization issues that affect Java application performance
End-to-End Java Performance Monitoring

Get Instant Code-Level Insights with Java Business Transaction Monitoring

Using an advanced tag-and-follow approach, eG Enterprise traces every business transaction (from web browsers and native mobile apps) that flows through the Java web and middleware tiers and allows quick identification of the cause of transaction slowness.

  • Visually map the entire application run-time architecture and all inter-dependencies across all tiers (client, presentation, business logic and data)
  • Monitor availability, response time and errors for each transaction, hop-by-hop, across multiple JVMs
  • In a single click, drill down to identify application code-level issues, slow database queries and remote web service calls
Java Application Code-Level Visibility

In-Depth Monitoring of Java Web Containers and JVMs

Monitor all aspects of the health and performance of Java web containers hosting the applications and the underlying Java Virtual Machines (JVMs).

  • Track heap and non-heap memory usage, and detect memory leaks and out-of-memory exceptions
  • Determine if garbage collection (GC) is working well. If not, determine what changes need to be made to avoid many full GCs
  • Identify blocked and deadlocked threads, and the exact object/line of code causing this
Monitoring JVMs and Java Containers
  • Report the thread and its stack trace that is causing high CPU usage in the JVM
  • Get insight into the performance of application servers including Tomcat, WebLogic, JBoss EAP, WildFly, WebSphere, GlassFish, and more

Monitor the Infrastructure
Supporting Your Java Applications

Application performance is often affected by anomalies in the underlying IT infrastructure, including the server operating system, hardware, hypervisor, network, and storage devices. In such cases, monitoring tools that only look at the application layers will not be helpful.

Using a converged approach to application and infrastructure monitoring, eG Enterprise allows IT administrators to monitor, analyze and correlate application performance with infrastructure performance. From a unified web console, administrators can see the performance every layer and every tier. A patented auto-correlation engine analyzes performance insights, presents a visual topology map of the infrastructure including interdependencies across the various tiers, and pinpoints the root cause in seconds.
