Report in Business Terms

B7T Application Capacity in Business Terms

Using the relationships and playing them out onto Forward Thinking™ scenario models, the capacity constraints of the application can be expressed in business terms, rather than compute terms. 

  • How many quotes per minute can an application support
  • How many simultaneous users,
  • Will my latency become unacceptable if trends continue? 
  • What components limit my volumes the most and what should I do to resolve them and provide more capacity for my business?

Mine Relationships

Application Capacity Mine Relationships

Capacity Planner looks for the relationships between business volume drivers, such as ‘number of quotes’ or ‘trades’ or ‘users’ against resource utilisation and performance. 

Identifying the strongest relationships that drive application constraints and, on an ongoing basis, tracking changes in these relationships that are a result of system changes

Analyse

Application Capacity Mine Analyse

This data is summarised at a number of levels.  From hourly measures, daily statistical summaries, weekdays, weekends, working hours, overnight summaries, weekly and monthly summaries. 

Capacity Planner does not aggregate historical data and therefore builds up an accurate understanding of application behaviour and metric patterns

Monitor

Application Capacity Mine Monitor

Data from multiple technology monitoring tools is normalised and modelled to present a single pain of glass view.  Providing insight into resource utilisation, technology specific platform and implementation metrics, business volumes and critical transaction response times.

High frequency monitoring tools such as Geneos provide visibility into metric values at very fine granularity. Application Performance Management tools like Appdynamics and Dynatrace can also provide application performance metrics
