Network Performance Monitoring and Telemetry | AppSensor™Real-time monitoring of network and application performance across hybrid and multi-cloud environments
AppSensor™: Maximize the performance of your applications with end-to-end network visibility and performance monitoring across software-defined and cloud-based architectures
Apcela’s AppSensor™ is an application-aware network performance monitoring and telemetry solution that constantly scans and reports end-to-end network and application performance to give real-time insights into performance issues and optimization opportunities. Through network instrumentation, AppSensor proactively monitors and analyzes application performance across underlay and overlay networks, enabling infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams to locate application-specific performance problems faster, thereby reducing time-to-diagnose and accelerating time-to-repair.
“The ability of the network to assist in a feedback loop to the applications is a novel enhancement to the network infrastructure as compared to traditional enterprise networks.”
AppSensor™ + EAP
Real-Time Insight into Network, Infrastructure and Application Performance
Integrated with Apcela’s Enhanced Analytics Platform (EAP), its AppSensor™ addresses a crucial requirement for enterprises operating mission-critical applications in the cloud — providing the necessary visibility into networks and applications across hybrid and multi-cloud environments through a single pane of glass.
Apcela’s AppSensor™ monitors and communicates the state of the network in real-time, providing a critical link between network infrastructure and application performance. Deployed across the enterprise, each sensor on the AppSensor™ runs a configurable set of synthetic network and application performance tests. These tests deliver a continuous stream of telemetry data over Apcela’s high-performance, low-latency backbone for analysis and proactive remediation via its EAP. Data can also be collected at the user and application level for transmission and processing by the analytics platform.
EAP provides several types of analytical capabilities, including trend reporting, alerting, and anomaly detection. By running these tests from a fleet of strategically distributed sensors, infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams can dramatically improve the precision with which they instrument, monitor and maintain their application delivery infrastructure. The result is real-time, end-to-end network visibility and improved application performance delivered with zero additional infrastructure footprint.
