  • Focus on your core applications

    Deep performance visibility for Microsoft® Exchange, IIS, and SQL Server®.

    Get more in-depth application monitoring with AppInsight dashboards for Exchange, IIS, and SQL Server. Analyze performance metrics in detail, and solve complex application issues faster.

    SAM-appinsight_for_sql
  • Stay on top of your apps

    Hit the ground running with pre-packaged alerts and reports.

    Eliminate false positives with intelligent baseline alerting. Easily customize built-in alerts and reports as needed.

  • Application-aware network performance

    QoS dashboard displays network metrics for each application.

    Quality of Service (QoS) uses deep packet inspection with server and network packet analysis sensors and server telemetry to identify the root cause of application slowdowns.

  • PerfStack™ Dashboard

    Cross-stack IT data correlation

    PerfStack™ allows you to drag, drop, and overlay performance metrics from your systems data and multiple sources (network, virtualization, storage, etc.) and data types on a single chart.

  • What value does having both SAM and DPA in my environment provide?

    SAM + DPA allows application owners, developers, and business owner to see what's happening end to end. It will even map your application to database dependencies for you when observed

  • How easy is it to get them working together?

    A wizard was added to the Orion side to facilitate the easy integration of SAM to DPA.

  • Why the app-centric approach for this pack?

    Most end users will not call into the IT department complaining that database XYZ is slow or down. The app-centric approach lets us talk the same language when troubleshooting an issue with end users.
