Identify the root cause
Identify the origin
Performance Vision spots the components degrading the end user experience:
- Client: generating disconnections, slowing down transfers, generating rogue traffic, etc.
- Network: showing misconfiguration (routing, prioritization), slow performance (degraded latency, packet loss), congestion
- Server: generating disconnections, slowing down transfers
- Remote desktop / application access: VDI, Terminal Server and Citrix layers
- Common services like name resolution, authentication, etc.
- Application having excessive processing times and application errors
Baseline and correlate events back to the infrastructure and application change logs
One of your biggest challenge while handling intermittent faults, is to identify what has changed and when it has changed.
To help you solve sporadic performance degradations, Performance Vision retains an history of network and application behaviors to build a baseline and a reference of the “normal” behavior of IT infrastructure and services. Baselining applies to both network- and application-centric measurements, as well as to volumes or response time indicators.
This baseline helps your team pinpoint when the originating event has occurred and correlate it with your IT change log.
By comparing the evolution of the performance metrics to a baseline, your team can immediately narrow down their search to the one out of many changes taking place in a complex IT infrastructure (client side, network, common services, security policy, server configuration or application upgrade).
Route the case efficiently
IT teams often find it difficult to determine which team should be working on the resolution of performance events raised by end users. As a consequence, in severe cases, all teams are required to investigate the origin of end user experience degradations focus on Mean to Innocence. This is often how the finger pointing starts. .
Performance Vision helps IT department instantly identify the origin of the response time degradations and assign the resolution directly to the right team, saving time for all the teams and shortening the resolution time (MTTR).
Gather and share evidence
Performance Vision provides insights into performance events. You can immediately share with all stake- holders incident reports that compare normal behavior, degradations, and the contributions of all of all the elements involved in the application delivery (client, network, common services, server, application) and end user response times.
