Let’s do a quick show of hands, virtually. How many of us like to think?…. No takers?…. Yeah, me neither. Don’t get me wrong. Thinking and opposable thumbs are the two leading reasons mankind isn’t extinct yet. But thinking takes energy and time; and when you’re tired or under pressure, well, sometimes you just can’t. That’s where user experience comes in. Even under stress, you intuitively know what to do without thinking too hard.

When applications produce anomalies such as erroneous calls, problematic traces, a high degree of events, or an accumulation of problem messages in logs, observability tools determine how fast you can identify the root cause. In a best case scenario, your observability tool uncovers the first signs of something that could slow down or disrupt an application, and you can mitigate it before it impacts customers.

This Application Performance Management eBook explores the world of containers, and how they impact application performance and monitoring. The analysis includes a breakdown of container visibility challenges, the kinds of tools available for container monitoring and functional recommendations for an effective Application Monitoring strategy.

Instana is Dynamic APM for Microservice Management. Specifically built for agile devops teams, we monitor and correlate every aspect of your application tech-stack. As your teams integrate and deploy new code Instana continuously discovers, and continuously aligns with the changes. Customers using Instana benefit from real-time impact analysis, improved quality of service, and optimized workflows that keep their applications healthy.

Automatic Visualization and Performance Analysis of Your Full Application Stack:

  • Application Performance Monitoring: Instana has re-imagined what APM means for Cloud-Native Applications, delivering the first Application Performance Management solution specifically built to monitor cloud-native, microservice, containerized, and orchestrated applications. Don’t worry, Instana can also manage classic applications (SOA, Hybrid Cloud, On-prem, etc.) too – that’s the easy stuff.
  • End User Monitoring: Understand the performance of EVERY request, from front end to backend so you can quickly detect problems and optimize performance. Instana enables users to confidently increase velocity and deliver more services without needing to worry about negatively impacting customer experiences. Instana allows you to quickly drill into every path and every browser request in chronological order for any user.
  • Application & Microservice Infrastructure Monitoring: Instana automates continuous discovery and monitoring of all application infrastructure components (with zero human configuration). Instana automatically correlates the application infrastructure performance data with top-line application performance, making it easy to see if the application infrastructure is contributing to the latency of application services.

Simply the Best APM Solution for Microservice Applications.
