PLEASANTON, Calif. – May 22, 2012 — ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the immediate availability of standardized user experience scores for web applications managed by its performance monitoring software package, Applications Manager. One of several new features to enhance monitoring support for Java transactions, the user experience scores are based on the Apdex specification and reveal user satisfaction with web application performance. Other new Applications Manager features include transaction tracing and performance metrics of Java/J2EE components.
Enterprises today rely heavily on a large number of mission-critical and revenue-generating applications. With so many different metrics being produced by so many applications, IT teams need a way to assess the performance of all applications with a standardized, meaningful metric. Apdex, short for Application Performance Index, gives IT pros a user experience metric that is comparable across all transactional applications. An Apdex score is something that senior management can easily understand and use to manage IT across multiple applications.
“Adding Apdex scores to Applications Manager makes it easy for lines of business to see how their applications are performing and ensure those applications are meeting service goals,” said Gibu Mathew, director of product management at ManageEngine. “For development teams, we’ve also upgraded our Java web transaction monitoring capability to identify slow spots in a transaction by showing Java method level traces and database queries. Ultimately, enhanced monitoring means better performance and more satisfied users.”
Enhanced Monitoring in Applications Manager
The latest Java transaction monitoring enhancements to Applications Manager help IT teams and application developers gain deep visibility into the way business applications behave for the end users. Users can detect and resolve performance degradation issues regardless of cause.
IT administrators can view transaction trace history and performance metrics of all components, ranging from URLs to SQL queries. If there is any performance degradation, users can see a trail of Java method invocations to further pinpoint the problematic code. They can identify slow database calls, database usage and overall performance of the database. The comprehensive stats help IT personnel quickly troubleshoot application performance issues and thereby deliver a superior end-user experience.
Specifically, Applications Manager now features the following capabilities:
- Apdex scores are compiled from data collected over time and converted into a simple index, based on application responsiveness. Each Apdex score is measured on a scale of 0 to 1, with 1 indicating all the users are satisfied and 0 indicating none are satisfied.
- Transaction traces display the execution details for URLs as a tree structure. The trace charts the sequence of the internal invocations of the URL.
- Performance metrics of Java/J2EE components include throughput represented in requests per minute and top five slowest transactions.

Applications Manager 10.4 is available immediately with prices starting at $795 for up to 25 servers or applications. A free, fully functional, 30-day trial version is available at http://ow.ly/7evOs. Pricing starts at $995 for the Professional edition with Java web transaction monitoring.
