“I solemnly swear that I am app to no good.” – Your applications

 

Does it ever feel like your applications are conspiring against you? Do you ever wish there was a magic spell to give you more visibility into communications between the applications you support and the network?

 

Okay, close your eyes and say the following 3 times fast while spinning around in the server room:

 

Eye of newt and ear of toad, grant me visibility into application processes and server nodes.
Zip, zat, add the cheese of a mousetrap; now let me see connection issues between my apps.

 

Did it work?

No?

Okay, but how cool would that have been?

Unfortunately it’s not magic. It’s monitoring.

Fortunately, we have a solution to help you mere muggles: SolarWinds® Server & Application Monitor (SAM). Use SAM to help you succeed in this month’s mission, and transform your unruly apps into applications managed!

 

Want even more ways to learn how to manage your applications better?

 

Be sure to attend our upcoming webcast "If an Application Fails in the Datacenter and No Users Are On It, Will It Cut a Ticket?" on March 13!
