SL Corporation Extends Holistic Application Performance Management Involving Custom Applications
Latest Release of RTView Provides WMI Adapter to Complement Its
Corte Madera, CA April 22, 2009 SL Corporation, a leading provider of real-time monitoring, analytics and visualization software, today announced the latest release of RTView, version 5.3, which includes an agentless adapter for the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) extensions, extending the 360-degree Application Performance Management (APM) platform to involve Windows-based custom applications. The adapter complements RTView's advanced JMX implementation which enables monitoring and management of custom Java applications.
"We are seeing a dramatic increase in customer requirements to extend APM solutions to involve, in some cases, hundreds of custom-built applications," commented Rodney Morrison, vice president of Products for SL Corporation. "RTView's ability to provide single-pane-of-glass visibility into Windows- and Java-based custom applications along with packaged and middleware applications, and even metrics from other monitoring tools has been critical to our customers' successes."
WMI is a set of Windows extensions that provides an operating system interface through which instrumented components of applications, including custom-built applications, can expose application performance metrics. WMI is implemented as a scripting language and can manage both local and remote computers.
The RTView WMI adapter allows users to enter these scripts to query metrics from any instrumented custom or packaged Microsoft application, including:
- Infrastructure metrics (e.g. percent CPU usage, memory usage, file system space, etc.)
- Windows event logs (on both local and remote computers)
- Applications installed (on both local and remote computers)
- SQL Server Events, availability, status and configuration
- Microsoft Exchange servers
- Microsoft IIS web servers
