OSCON: AppDynamics and application performance management


Today’s OSCON interview takes us into the land of application performance modeling and features Dustin Whittle, Technical Evangelist at AppDynamics.   AppDynamics provides performance management for Java, .Net and PHP applications.  Check out what Dustin has to say about the wild and wacky world of APM:

Some of the ground Dustin covers

  • What does AppDynamics do?  Spoiler alert: It helps you figure out what “healthy” looks like for your application and gives you line of code visibility into your production app from the client to multiple tiers of your server and then down into the database.
  • Who looks at/uses the data AppDynamics generates?
  • How does the cloud change application development?  And what about those “noisey neighbors”?
  • APIs, SDKs and the recently launched AppDynamics X.

Tune in next time to see the next in my OSCON interview series.  Still left are RedHat’s OpenShift and Puppet.
