Understand dependencies and interoperability between software components and the impact of version upgrades on availability.
Gaining operational intelligence for a typical business enterprise platform involves a large number of application logs, network activity data and other configuration information, and requires the ability to drill into particular dimensions, such as tracking
the flow of a transaction across different elements and components in a SOA architecture. It also requires the ability to understand application dependencies. Most applications use a variety of database, functional application services,
and internal and external HTTP based web services. It is critical to understand how these dependencies can affect application delivery and performance for your users.
Engineers often use manual processes and tools like Visio to document dependencies and explain how services talk to each other. This is error-prone, likely to be out of date and simply cannot support scalable operational intelligence. APM solutions provide
some automated gathering, but don’t necessarily incorporate other sources of intelligence such as network activity. Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) tools are focused entirely on network performance and cannot delve into applications.
Gemini Enterprise can ingest application logs from SIEM platforms, application data from APM and even network activity and configuration data from different sources. And, it provides a single, interactive analysis of application dependencies. When changes
or upgrades are planned to components like a MySQL database, Gemini Enterprise makes it easy to track down dependencies and understand operational impact to web services dependent on it. On the other hand, when application exceptions are
generated in the web-tier, it can be traced back to API service timeouts caused by a dependency on an external vendor’s API.
