Application profiling

Application profiling describes the process of monitoring applications for productivity, security, and compliance.

Managing application performance can be challenging as modern applications have many dependencies and their complexity can hinder realizing the benefits of moving to the AWS cloud.

End-to-end application monitoring, regardless of environment, provides the visibility needed in business today—enabling organizations to automatically discover resources, baseline application performance, and visualize the interactions of every component through flow maps that are built on real-time data.

Application profiling



AppDynamics Application and Business Performance Monitoring provides end-to-end monitoring of AWS-based apps including microservices and Docker. It provides support for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon DynamoDB, AWS Lambda, and other AWS services via Amazon CloudWatch integration. This unified monitoring helps organizations accelerate and measure the success of cloud migration by comparing 'pre' and 'post' move benefits, validating performance across the entire application stack.

Here’s how it works: Agents sit across the entire application ecosystem and supporting infrastructure, notifying controllers of real-time performance. Agents send performance data to controllers, and application performance is visualized through the controller UI for easy analysis.

NASDAQ OMX uses AppDynamics to decrease costs and time-to-market

NASDAQ OMX launched two innovative products catered to its institutional retail and individual investor customers:

  1. Market Replay, for quick access to historical stock price information and
  2. Data-On-Demand, for customers to access underlying Market Replay files stored on AWS through an API. NASDAQ OMX needed a way to support its growing customer base without worrying about infrastructure, security, or performance.

NASDAQ used AppDynamics on AWS to gain visibility into a complex hybrid cloud environment and AWS cloud application environment, significantly accelerating time-to-resolution and capacity to innovate. By using AWS infrastructure, NASDAQ OMX avoided having to buy expensive hardware and decreased their time to market threefold.

Heather Abbott's quote
We used AppDynamics extensively to understand how the platform was functioning on AWS, measuring its performance and understanding how the system was behaving on a completely new infrastructure platform.
