Java Transaction Monitoring with eG Enterprise

Detect and diagnose slow transactions affecting business services

Business Transaction Monitoring

A recent Gartner survey of enterprises indicated that user experience was the most important criteria when formulating application performance strategy. When user experience is reported as poor, discovering the cause of slow application transactions is paramount. But in today’s multi-tier, heterogeneous application architectures, it is challenging to determine what is causing a slowdown: is it the network, or the client, or the database query, or application processing, or an external web service call, etc.?

Monitoring of business transactions provides clear visibility into which application tier is slowing down user access to applications and, in turn, affecting user experience.

Challenges

Java Transaction Tracing - Why is the Transaction Slow?

Java application architectures have evolved to include several hardware and software tiers. Production applications involve multiple load balanced web servers, several tiers of Java application servers and middleware, backend databases, messaging servers, transaction processing engines and external services. And, many of these tiers are inter-dependent. Therefore, it can be extremely challenging to diagnose which tier is causing the transaction to be slow and why. IT operations and DevOps teams need answers to key questions, including:

Total Performance Visibility into Java Transaction Processing with eG Enterprise

eG Enterprise provides complete visibility into Java transaction processing in every tier that supports the application. Using byte code instrumentation, eG Enterprise tags every transaction and traces it through the presentation tier, business logic tier and data tier. Method invocations, processing times and any exceptions are captured in the Java tiers, and any calls to non-Java tiers and external services are also tracked. For database accesses, the queries executed and the execution times are reported.

Benefits

Why eG? One Monitor to Manage All of IT.

Since we don't control everything between our data center and client locations, events occasionally occur where service availability or application performance issues arise. eG Enterprise helps us pinpoint the nature and origin of the problem right away so we can resume normal operations as quickly as possible.
