Boost Openbravo performance with AppDynamics and Munin

AppDynamicsLast week we had the opportunity to meet our partners again in a new webinar talking about Openbravo Performance Monitoring. The topic of course created  a lot of interest and we were able to count with the presence of Asier Lostalé, one of our Product Engineers who presented AppDynamics and Munin, the two tools used for Application Monitoring and System Monitoring.

Openbravo Application Monitoring Tool based on AppDynamics

The Openbravo Application Monitoring Tool is a commercial module based on a third party solution by AppDynamics. It includes a license to use AppDynamics software and delivers a pre-packaged configuration to work with Openbravo. It can be installed like any other commercial module and it only requires an extra set up in the Openbravo server after installation.
This strategic alliance with AppDynamics allows the delivery of Performance Assurance to Openbravo customers by:

  • Monitoring Application Performance
  • Alerting when there are problems, and
  • Helping to pinpoint root causes

As another commercial module this tool is acquired as a commercial module (yearly subscription) for each Openbravo server (JVM) that requires application monitoring. It is included for free for 1 server for Openbravo Enterprise Edition customers and offered as an option to Openbravo Professional Edition customers.

For the third year in a row, Gartner has positioned AppDynamics as a Leader in its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring, so we are very happy to join forces with such a big market leader.

Openbravo System Monitoring based on Munin

Munin is another monitoring tool with a different focus, complementing AppDynamics with system-level monitoring. In this case it is a free tool that you can use in your Openbravo installation, which is not only geared towards  performance and typically also provides  helpul metrics like the evolution of Database size over the course of a year or server disk space usage for capacity planning amongst others, and for daily, weekly, monthly or yearly periods. By creating user-defined thresholds it also allows you to be alerted when some conditions are met.

Shared materials

For all of you who want to know more about these solutions, find below the the slides and the recorded sessions (after the last slide), both in English and Spanish, where you will get additional details about the benefits these tools provide and in the case of AppDynamics watch a demo.
