Monitoring web application performance


You can search and measure many aspects of applications and their supporting middleware. These use cases show how to gain visibility of your application health and improve the customer experience by monitoring availability, performance, and usage of applications.

Next steps

After you run these searches, you can triage applications in your environment, leverage proactive and predictive monitoring to trend past performance, and make prediction about application response times, error rates, and other important metrics. You can use web access logs to see which web assets are used the most and gain valuable insights about page access.
