Before You Start

This document describes how to use Application Performance Management (APM).

Full-Link Topology

Display the call and dependency relationships between applications, and support auto discovery of abnormal instances.

Tracing

View information such as the call status, duration, and API to further demarcate fault causes after finding out abnormal services in the topology.

Transaction List

Display key metrics of transactions and intuitively reflect users' satisfaction with applications based on Application Performance Index (Apdex).

  • When a transaction is abnormal, an alarm is reported.
  • For transactions with poor user experience, locate faults based on topology and tracing.

Transaction Insights

Analyze success and error patterns and locate root causes based on historical metrics and exception types of key transactions.

Method Tracing

Enable developers to locate method-level performance problems online.

SQL Analysis

Analyze the database performance problems caused by abnormal SQL statements. The topology displays the key metrics of databases and SQL statements.

JVM Monitoring

Monitor the memory and thread metrics of the JVM running environment in real time, enabling you to quickly detect problems such as memory leakage and thread exceptions.

  • The topology displays the JVM metrics of instances.
  • When a JVM metric is abnormal, an alarm is reported.

Browser

Collect performance data using the non-intrusive tracking technology and display such data in the topology to locate frontend problems such as slow page loading and frame freezing.

Mobile

Collect performance data using the non-intrusive tracking technology and display such data in the topology to locate app performance problems such as crash and Application Not Responding (ANR).
