SL Corporation’s RTView Provides Application Performance Context For Amazon CloudWatch Monitoring
New Adapter Enables Monitoring Metrics for Amazon Web Services To Be Integrated with Application Metrics into Holistic Views, and Archived for Historical Trend Analysis
Corte Madera, CA – December 11, 2012 – SL Corporation, a leading provider of application and service-level system monitoring solutions, today announced that their flagship product, RTView Enterprise Monitor, offers a new adapter for Amazon CloudWatch data, enabling users to view a broad array of monitoring metrics for Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources in the context of application performance metrics. RTView further enables users to archive their Amazon CloudWatch metrics, maintaining a long-term history of preferred metrics for historical trend analysis and alerting.
“Amazon EC2 has become the de facto standard for many organizations needing additional on-demand compute power or application development and testing resources,” said Tom Lubinski, CEO of SL Corporation. “A truly holistic view of Application Health State would not be complete without performance information from EC2 instances on which application components may be running. We’re pleased to offer AWS users the ability to automate the integration of these metrics with RTView Enterprise Monitor.”
Amazon CloudWatch enables users to monitor AWS resources in real-time, automatically providing metrics such as CPU utilization, latency, and request counts. SL’s RTView Enterprise Monitor is able to incorporate these metrics along with application performance data obtained from other sources such as an application server or message bus into holistic, single-pane-of-glass views via a highly scalable and customizable platform.
Using the RTView Historian, Amazon CloudWatch metrics can be stored in an arbitrary SQL database for trend analysis. Historical trends can then be used to help define alert thresholds against Amazon CloudWatch data which, when correlated with alerts from other application components through RTView’s alert management system, can help users identify the source of performance problems more quickly.
The lightweight, flexible nature of RTView Enterprise Monitor is also of particular use in complex environments where the monitoring of both cloud-based and on-premise components is required.
