Guide to IT Best Practices in Application-Aware Network Performance Management


Businesses are constantly striving to do more with fewer resources, and information technology (IT) departments are subject to the same pressures. They must contend with a growing number of applications and an increasingly complex infrastructure. The IT department’s arsenal includes tools for monitoring network, application, server, database, and end user performance, but typically they are not integrated with each other. That means that it’s end users who are detecting poor application performance, and the role of the IT team is reactive.

A modern performance management solution must be easy to use, include comprehensive alerting, and offer reporting that correlates data from each component of an application and the underlying infrastructure. Application-aware network performance management (AANPM) tools aim to provide a holistic view of the performance of interdependent applications, servers, and networks. Such cross-platform visibility enables the IT department to ensure high-performance delivery of critical business applications.

This white paper describes the trends in application performance and network diagnostic tools and the drivers of AANPM. You’ll learn about best practices for implementing AANPM and discover some enterprise use cases.
