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.
To complete these processes, your deployment needs to ingest normalized data, populating the Web data model in the Common Information Model (CIM). For information on installing and using the CIM, see the Common Information Model documentation.
How to use Splunk software for this use case
Depending on what information you have available, you might find it useful to identify some or all of the following:
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.
