    • AppOptics Trigger Trace - One of the more powerful features of AppOptics is Tracing. Distributed transaction tracing can help you understand the performance and behavior of a request. Although the standard AppOptics implementation includes 100 traces per minute, it is still a sampling. While that works great most of the time, there are times you might want to trace a specific request, especially if you are using AppOptics to monitor performance or debug an application while it is in development. No worries, we recently announced a feature called Trigger Trace; working together with trace options, we've made it easy for you to identify specific requests that you want to make sure have a trace.

    • We just released the SolarWinds® AppOptics Dev Edition, a new, free version of AppOptics aimed at helping developers gain visibility into an application's performance during the development cycle to ship code faster with fewer bugs. Read More

     

    • Announcing comprehensive, real-time Azure availability and performance monitoring. AppOptics now provides in-depth monitoring of Azure Services and applications running on Azure App Service.  Be the first to know about issues with end-to-end visibility across all your Azure environments. Quickly troubleshoot your Azure applications running on a virtual machine (VM) or an Azure App Service. Read More

     

    • It is now even easier to manage multiple environments in AppOptics. Technically we've always had environment support through the use of global tags and support for custom EC2 tags.  We recently announced some additional capabilities that further simplify managing multiple environments. Instead of needing to change a config file and specify a tag whenever a host or metric belongs in a different environment, simply use the correct token. Read More

     

    • Now with one click, you can go directly from a trace into the logs associated with that trace. This new feature provides the ability to correlate the log messages from a traced transaction. Connecting the dots between the distributed trace and the related logs makes your life easier when troubleshooting application issues. Read More

     

    • You can monitor AWS App Mesh with AppOpticsGaining insight and control over their service-to-service communication is a non-trivial problem. Conceptually operating at layer 5, service meshes offer a major advantage in providing a holistic framework to enhance observability, security, and control of your application flows without having to change any application code. They are also described as a decoupling of developers and operators from their interdependence in affecting service behavior. Read More

     

    • AppOptics has a triple threat for troubleshooting. The product team is always looking at ways to improve, and that has resulted in the triple threat of troubleshooting–three powerful ways AppOptics helps you get to the root cause of performance problems (distributed tracing, live code profiling, and exception tracking). When all three are combined, you’ve got what you need to quickly and accurately identifying what is causing your applications’ poor performance Read More

     

    • You can monitor Kubernetes with AppOptics. As an orchestration tool, Kubernetes already tracks the health and stability of each of its components including containers, services, nodes, and load balancers. If any of these components has a problem, Kubernetes is designed to respond to it to minimize downtime and increase operational efficiencies. By monitoring Kubernetes, DevOps team members can monitor the state of the cluster and help Kubernetes perform more effectively. You can monitor Kubernetes along with your entire infrastructure and application stack Read More
