With release 1.8 of our Application Performance Management (APM) tool inspectIT, we integrated a new feature named Automatic Problem Diagnosis. APM tools mainly provide alerting and visualization capabilities in order to detect performance problems during operation. However, to isolate and diagnose the real root cause of problems is still a highly manual and repetitive task which also requires a lot of APM expert knowledge.

With Kibana’s machine learning feature you can setup an anomaly detection process in order to detect anomalous patterns in your application’s performance metric data. In it’s simplest form, you are interested in higher and lower response times than usual. Every application is unique in terms of what is usual. Baselining is the key to learn what is meant to be usual for your application and gives you the power to know when something unusual or unexpected happens – an anomaly.

With the latest release of our APM tool inspectIT, a new long-awaited feature has been integrated: inspectIT now supports Browser End User Experience Monitoring. This means that for every Java Servlet API based application (or any technology which itself uses the Servlet API), you can now monitor the actually experienced performance of your web front-end via the APIs the internet browsers expose. Examples for such APIs are the Navigation Timing API and the Resource Timing API.
