End-to-end performance monitoring sounds great! You have a handle on all of your applications and supporting resources so you can quickly figure out which resource/component is causing the application performance issue.

Sure, you have a handle on monitoring server performance – CPU, Memory, I/O and the like, but what does it take to monitor Exchange or DB2 or Java? Lucky for you, SolarWinds has a new resource in the Server & Application Monitor on-line demo which defines for each application what you should monitor, why and what the metric value should be for effective server monitoring. For example, is fragmentation above 10% good or bad and what causes fragmentation to begin with?
