In Part 1, we discussed the different management protocols and methods that are used to manage, monitor, and measure application and system health and performance. If you missed Part 1 you can watch the recorded version here.


During part 2 we’ll dive deeper into some of these technologies and demonstrate how they are commonly used within management applications. Specifically we’ll be discussing:

  • Leveraging RPC and WMI to monitor Windows PerfMon counters & statistics
  • Using user experience monitors and synthetic transactions to validate application availability and response time
  • Integrating NetFlow statistics to enhance visibility of application usage and performance

We’ll be leveraging the SolarWinds Application Performance Monitor (APM) among other tools to demonstrate these technologies and facilitate the discussions.
