AppMap is a map-like visual representation of your complete application architecture

Introducing AppMap

As mentioned in the Transaction Tracing for Performance Bottleneck Detection and Transaction Tracing Reports and Traces posts, when you enable Transaction Tracing in SPM you will also automatically get:

  • Request Throughput
  • Request Latency
  • Error & Exception Rates
  • AppMap

Today we’re happy to officially introduce AppMaps. What’s AppMap? As you can see below, AppMap is a map-like visual representation of your complete application architecture. AppMaps show which components are communicating with which components, at what throughput and latency, at what network speed, whether there are any errors between them, etc.  Connections to external services and databases are also captured and visualized.

As such, AppMaps help you:

  • Instantly see your whole architecture and its operational state and health
  • Bring up to speed new team members by showing them the current architecture instead of showing them outdated architecture diagrams;
  • Keep the whole team up to date about the latest architecture

Things to note:

  • Errors and exceptions are shown in red when they are detected
  • Components are color-coded:
    • Orange components represent external HTTP services
    • Green components are databases (e.g., SQL server has its own shade of green; other databases have their own shades)
    • Blue components are other SPM Apps (e.g., Elasticsearch has its own shade, etc., etc.)
  • Arrows between components have variable thickness – thicker arrows mean bigger throughput (rpm).
  • Greater opacity means smaller latency.

Clicking on any of the components on the AppMap shows more details about that component, such as:

  • Overall Throughput, Latency, Error and Exception rates (also shown as sparklines)
  • Incoming and Outgoing connections and Throughput and Latency between them
  • List of Hosts/Nodes when an SPM App is selected with Throughput, Latency, Error and Exception rates for each of them

If you’d like to see AppMap for your applications, do the following:

That’s it!

Not using SPM yet, but would like to trace your apps? Easy: register here — there is no commitment and you can leave your credit card in your wallet.  You get 30 days Free for new SPM Apps so even if you don’t end up falling in love with SPM for monitoring, alerting and anomaly detection, or Logsene for your logs, you can use the Distributed Transaction Tracing to quickly speed up your apps!  Oh, and if you are a young startup, a small or non-profit organization, or an educational institution, ask us for a discount (see special pricing)!

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
