Are you tired of diagnosing and remediating networking issues using a bunch of disparate tools and scripts? You may not stop using those specialized tools, but you can take a more streamlined approach to day-to-day troubleshooting.
Join Head Geek Leon Adato as he demonstrates how to easily visualize and troubleshoot network critical path connectivity, performance, and configuration issues—all within a consolidated Network Path Troubleshooting dashboard.
Product Manager, Chris O’Brien will also share our vision of how the troubleshooting needs of IT practitioners evolve to take into account the new reality of cloud-based apps and their hybrid network paths. This is your opportunity to provide feedback on what we’re experimenting with: 1) automatic discovery of problematic network paths, and 2) how we will accelerate remediation. Come take a look!
Finding the Needle in the "AppStack": Troubleshooting Application Performance
When users complain about application quality of service, the problem may lie within any layer of the application stack—be it the virtualization, database, OS/server, storage layer, or the application itself.
With the new SolarWinds AppStack Environment View that is built into all of the SolarWinds systems management products, IT pros can quickly troubleshoot performance or availability issues. Product Manager Kevin Sparenberg will discuss and demonstrate how you can use the combined capabilities of the SolarWinds systems management portfolio to provide real-time, automated, and end-to-end relationship mapping into a consolidated, easy-to-use dashboard. You will learn how to dramatically reduce the mean time to resolution for issues occurring within your environment.
Digging for Security Gold: Using Firewall Logs to Find Security Issues
In last year’s thackCamp, attendees specifically requested a deeper discussion into firewall security. Firewalls are a critical part of your security infrastructure, and it follows they should also be a critical part of your security monitoring processes. Firewalls also combine richness of data with volume of data, making it easy for the nuggets of useful information to be buried under mountains of noise.
Join Principal Product Manager Nicole Pauls and Director of Product Marketing Mav Turner as they share ways to wrangle the log noise from your firewalls. They will provide you with indicators of potential security breaches and issues, including: suspicious ports and activity to look for, different patterns of behavior of interest, and how to monitor for (good and bad) administrative activity.
Application Performance IS about Database Performance
The reality today is slow is the new broke, with databases often the cause of poor application performance. Most tools focus solely on uptime and status while not providing resource performance and root cause analysis needed to quickly troubleshoot issues. The combination of SolarWinds® Server and Application Monitor (SAM) and Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) provides developers, systems, storage and database teams with the visibility they need into application and database performance - all the way down to query performance tuning.
In this session, Group Product Manager Brian Radovich will demonstrate how the integration between SAM and DPA leverages multi-dimensional wait-time analysis and dynamic baselines to help pinpoint the root cause of performance problems.
