On-Demand ADM
On-Demand Application Dependency Maps (ADM) are used for troubleshooting near real-time issues and are therefore limited to showing the worst performing application and network connections in the most recent 24 hours.
The On-Demand ADM builds a picture to show you the relationships between different systems. By using a combination of DNS names or IP addresses, network delay, application delay, and application names (including derived applications), you will see:
What systems are talking to each other.
The applications being used on those systems.
When a critical service in your company is not performing as required, it can often lead to a lot of finger pointing and blame. Sometimes it is because the network topology and interdependent systems are not fully documented, mapped, and understood. Having that visual of your topology before beginning your troubleshooting is certainly helpful, but with On-Demand ADM it is not needed. In real-time you can create a picture of what systems are talking to and rely on each other. You will always see the worst performing connections (even if the worst performers are still acceptable).
By seeing the worst performers you can isolate very quickly where the problem is and who is best equipped to resolve the issue. You will know if it is a network, server, or application problem so that the right team can begin their work and get your business critical service back up and running.
