SolarWinds® AppOptics™ now has expanded auto-instrumentation for Java® messaging queues and background jobs in addition to the existing auto-instrumentation for web applications. With this new capability, you can get code-level visibility so you can understand the bottlenecks in queue consumers, queue producers, and other background jobs. The newly added frameworks include the following:
The AppOptics team is excited to announce SolarWinds® AppOptics now supports SAML v2.0 making it even easier for you to access your AppMan products. With SAML enabled, you can log into your Active Directory domain or intranet and have immediate access to the AppMan products, with no additional login required.
What is SAML and why did we integrate with it? Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an industry-standard single sign-on (SSO) format. It's widely used in many enterprise systems and applications. Once it is enabled, it allows you to automatically authenticate into an application without typing an additional username or password.
More and more organizations, especially larger enterprises, rely on robust federated identify providers, such as Active Directory, to authenticate users and enforce user identity verification policies. Integrating with SAML, allows organizations to streamline access to SolarWinds AppMan products and centrally manage access privileges. SAML integration is an important step as we continue to bring the AppMan products together and integrate them with key enterprise systems. If you have any questions or would like a demo of how to set up this powerful new integration, do not hesitate to reach out to email@example.com
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
