Riverbed SteelCentral AppInternals 9.0 adds mobile app support and HDAnalytics

Riverbed Technology, the leader in application performance infrastructure, announced the availability of RiverbedâSteelCentralTMAppInternals 9.0 (formerly OPNET AppInternals Xpert), enabling IT teams to isolate problems faster, gain increased visibility into the end user experience and streamline application manageability so that application performance issues can be analysed, diagnosed and resolved quickly before end users even notice a problem. NewAppInternals 9.0 features include: monitoring end-user experience and transaction performance of native mobile apps on all iOS and Android devices; and HDAnalyticsTM and diagnostics that provide second-by-second performance-data so IT teams can now diagnose and resolve problems from easy-to-use, web-based SteelCentral dashboards.

As application ecosystems become increasingly complex and distributed, it’s essential to have a holistic operational view of application performance, from the end-user, through the network and infrastructure over which it runs, and deep into the actual application components and code. Only Riverbed delivers this complete performance picture. AppInternals is part of Riverbed SteelCentral, Riverbed’s comprehensive performance management and control suite which includes solutions recognised by Gartner as the only “Leaders” in the magic quadrants for both Application Performance Monitoring (2013) and Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (2014).

“Effectively managing application performance in today’s complex, multi-tier application environments requires an integrated view that enables application operation and business teams to have comprehensive visibility into how applications are performing,” said Brent Lees, Senior Product Marketing Manager of EMEA for Riverbed SteelCentral. “It also requires app operations, development and QA teams to have immediate visibility into performance problems before they occur so that they can begin remedial efforts before application performance begins to suffer. Our unique HDAnalytics™ capability in AppInternals 9.0 simplifies and speeds application performance management so that performance problems are resolved before end users are impacted.”

What’s new in AppInternals 9.0:

  • HDAnalyticsTM:  Through high-definition transaction capture with business context for root cause analysis, AppInternals now tracks method parameters in addition to capturing descriptive data for all transactions. App support teams can now traverse an entire transaction and understand the business context by looking at recorded method parameters. Armed with this rich, contextual data, application development teams can quickly troubleshoot and fix problems without needing to recreate them.
  • Native Mobile Support to Extend End-to-End Visibility into Mobile Application Performance:  AppInternals 9.0 extends support to iOS, Android and rich web applications. As a result, IT teams can monitor performance from end users’ devices into the depths of data centres. It offers complete visibility into the behaviour of applications on a single pane of glass, so that IT can quickly find and fix performance problems before they impact end users.
  • Analytics Workflows and Correlation to Rapidly Diagnose and Resolve Problems:  With all new, out-of-the-box web-based workflows, AppInternals enables app operations to rapidly find and diagnose problems and send detailed information to development so they can resolve the problem. With HDAnalyticsTM, AppInternals uniquely presents highly granular performance data across multiple tiers to expose poorly performing transactions.
