Introducing TraceView for Node.js Applications

Today, we’re expanding the diversity of application environments TraceView supports by bringing node.js support out of private beta to general availability.  AppNeta provides full-stack monitoring designed to cover critical production environments and all their moving parts, so it’s exciting to be able to support even more diverse and heterogeneous environments. Support for http-server, http-client, mongodb […]



Apdex Updates: Synthetic Apdex, Geographic Apdex, and Errors as Fails

Since we released Apdex in April, we’ve been tossing around ideas to improve and extend our support of Apdex.  You might have noticed that last week we introduced a few big changes: “Synthetic Apdex” – separate Apdex scoring for AppView monitoring performance, to better compare synthetic vs RUM experience Experience filters – easy drill down on requests […]



JRuby: Performance Plus the Whole Java World on a Silver Platter

We’re happy to announce that we just recently released our first java platform gem with JRuby instrumentation for AppNeta Traceview. It’s been exciting and at times a bit challenging but we’re very happy to now offer full JRuby support for application performance monitoring. We found JRuby to be very interesting. You have this hard-core team […]



python-traceview: A Library for the TraceView API

Not too long ago, we introduced the TraceView Data API, which exposes high level metrics and performance data related to your TraceView account via a RESTful API. For the unfamiliar, this means you can access server latency timeseries, application error rates, and even browsers used by end users. In an effort to make accessing the […]



Announcing Auto-RUM for Apache, nginx

Real User Monitoring extends TraceView’s performance purview from the application’s backend performance to full browser pageloads.  This provides a more complete view of end-user experience. Until now, this was done by adding small script tags to the beginning and end of your templates.  Today, we’re releasing Apache and nginx instrumentation which will automate this process, […]



Measuring User Satisfaction

When monitoring an application’s performance, start at the highest level: how is the app performing for users?  It’s important to measure this using both technical metrics (eg. latency, page weight) and also experiential metrics (Apdex, speed index). We’ve recently introduced Apdex-based performance scoring to TraceView.  Now, we’re taking that a step further, with Apdex for […]

Hey Tracing Guy!

Supporting a product like TraceVIew means that among other things I get to play with a broad cross section of web stacks, poke around in interesting and unusual server configurations, and field a wide array of questions. “What exactly do you mean by a trace?” (This). “Why can I install a TraceView Apache module but […]



From Boston to Austin: DrupalCon 2014

Another year means another Drupalcon for AppNeta! We had a great experience in Portland last year and we’re looking forward to our week in Austin. This time around we’ve got four AppNetians attending: myself (James), Kristin, Rob, and Dan. Just like last year, we’ll be giving live demos of our products with a focus on […]



Now Monitoring: Adobe Experience Manager (CQ5)

CQ5 (now Adobe Experience Manager) is a web content management system (WCMS) originally developed by Swiss company Day Software. Day was later acquired by Adobe, and its core product became Adobe’s primary WCMS offering. CQ5 helps companies to build, manage and deliver their digital contents across different channels at scale, especially when there’s a large […]


Apdex and Transaction Groups

Communicating End User Experience: Apdex and Transaction Groups

“How is my site performing?” What begins as a simple-seeming question can turn out to be quite complex; the answer depends, of course, on how you choose to measure performance. Are you looking for server-side performance, or end-user? Would an average latency be a good answer, or would the 98th percentile latency be better? And […]
