AppOptics Application Service Map

By Adam Hert on May 19, 2020

Announcing automatic dependency mapping in SolarWinds AppOptics

Understand Context in Distributed Architecture

When your team responds to a latency alert on a single service, how do they know how (or if) the increased latency in one service affects the end user? With the SolarWinds® AppOptics service map, teams can easily view the relationships between services, and see how (or if) a service is connected to the end user. This relationship can be used to look at the performance of the upstream services to understand the scope of impact on the end user (if any). This helps teams prioritize issues properly, focusing on what’s critical.

Understand Shared Dependencies and Resource Constraints

If a particular service is seeing slow performance from a database, but not making many queries, what else could be creating pressure on the database? The AppOptics application service map shows services and dependencies, allowing teams to see which services are querying the same database, with drill downs to see the frequency and latency of each query to understand where the load is coming from.

Surface Unknown Dependencies and Misconfigurations

Is a staging server querying a production database? There may be an internal rule that staging and production are segregated, but sometimes things get missed. The relationship between a staging service and production database are visualized on the map, making the bad configuration stand out.

Understand Architecture of Critical Business Transactions

Understanding the services involved and dependencies of a critical business transaction helps teams set monitoring priority on those services and dependencies. This also helps teams work together to make sure a critical business transaction is provisioned properly and running efficiently.

How Does It Work?

The AppOptics application service map is created automatically based on application performance management (APM) data. All that’s needed is to add the APM libraries to your applications, and the relationships between services and dependencies will automatically be discovered.

See It in Action

You can find the application service map using the map toggle under the APM section. If you aren’t using AppOptics yet, start a free trial to gain visibility from service relationships, right down to custom functions and database queries.

SolarWinds AppOptics is a new breed of APM that’s simple, scalable, and most of all affordable. To try it out, sign up for a free 30-day trial today.
