Application Visibility for Network Admins - Stop the Blame Game!
2 Feb 2011
As the head of product management for Quest Software’s Network Management division I hear from network administrators all the time citing war stories of finger pointing and network blame games. “Our web site is running slow, it must be the network’s fault!” “I can’t log into my account…The network must be down!”
I was on a call earlier this week discussing our
Foglight Network Management System
(NMS) with a network administrator who had just spent 5 hours in a war room with other domain experts trying to solve a major performance problem impacting service delivery to customers. He was interested in our integration with the Foglight
application performance monitoring
(APM) framework and the
that we now offer to network administrators. Just imagine the time saved by being able to see exactly where problems are located in your environment… whether they’re located in the network, the database, your physical servers, virtual infrastructure or the application code itself.
With our latest release of
and its integration into the Foglight APM framework this is now possible. No more time wasted digging through log files and comparing notes with other domain experts trying to FIND problems. Foglight does this for you so you can focus efforts to FIX them and improve service levels.
This week we’re demonstrating Foglight NMS at
Cisco Live in London
. If you’re in town, please stop the
booth (E72) for a demo… and see the power of application visibility for yourself.
