    denny.lecompte

      We are pleased to announce the availability of Application Performance Monitor v2.5.  If you already own APM, then v2.5 is in your customer portal already.  If you don't own APM, now would be a great time to try it.

       

      What’s new in v2.5?

      Improved usability

      • New Application Monitor Template Assignment Wizard
      • Simplified the process for creating a new application monitor template
      • New Application Monitor Template management user interface
      • Added descriptions to templates
      • Users can now add "tags" to templates to allow organization.
      • Tags are exported and imported with templates.
      • AppBuilder has been simplified (and renamed) so that it focuses on browsing processes, services, and WMI Performance Counters
      • Application Health Overview now links to a filtered version of application status
      • Template thresholds now allow for new operators (less than, greater than, equal to)
      • Added a user interface for managing component monitors within templates and when assigned to servers, allowing users to easily assign a single component to a server without including it in a template or to easily copy components from one template to another
      • Updated layout of Edit Application and Edit Template page
      • Users can now test Application Monitors and individual Component Monitors without actually assigning them

      Scalability

      • Improved scalability, in terms of number of total monitors
      • Monitoring frequency is now controlled for an Application Monitor rather than the individual component monitors
