That means you can stay on top of what's happening in real-time & understand how performance is impacting your bottom line. All with one easy-to-use, affordable product.
Proudly display unified status views of your infrastructure, applications, and business metrics on TVs and monitors around your office so that everyone knows what’s going on. Unlike other monitoring solutions, the DevOps Dashboard is not only functional, it is beautiful, so you won’t be ashamed to have it up for all to see! (Plus, it’s so seamlessly designed that even the pointy haired big boss will understand what he’s looking at.)
Infrastructure, App, & Business Metrics — In One Place!
AppFirst collects data from multiple sources so you always have full-stack visibility. Got Nagios plug-in data? No problem -- we pull in all of this data so that you can make the most of your existing investment. Need log file data? We’ve got you covered. And to get visibility into your business metrics, simply use AppFirst StatsD and we’ll collect that data for you, too -- securely and reliably. All of this data is combined with the millions of metrics we collect inside your application stack using our patent-pending “miss nothing” technology.
A Unified Respository for All of Your Data
The millions of metrics we collect from every server, every day, stream to our big data platform, into a single repository, where we also capture all of your other data sources. No more headaches trying to remember where to look for pieces of data -- finally, it’s all in one place! And best of all, we manage this repository, so you don’t need to build and manage your own. Learn more about the awesomeness of the NoSQL technology behind the platform here.
Visibility for Everyone in the Organization
Our DevOps Dashboard is easily customizable to give everyone the views they need to do their jobs. For tech execs, we deliver insight into business metrics side-by-side with a high-level view of apps and infrastructure. For hands-on DevOps types who always need to know what’s happening, we give you a real-time dashboard that will immediately alert you to issues, plus the tools to drill down into detailed data to resolve problems quickly.
Troubleshoot 90% Faster
We’re more than just a pretty dashboard. In fact, AppFirst captures the most detailed app information ever collected. By collecting data from within your entire application as the application executes, we deliver a completeness that goes beyond polling. And then we combine it with all your other data sources. So when you are tracking a tough problem or seeing intermittent issues, we’ll have the data you need to troubleshoot -- no need to spend hours or days trying to reproduce a problem or search for a nugget of knowledge in multiple tools.
Get Started in Minutes
Go ahead... download and install AppFirst collectors everywhere there is an operating system that makes up your app stack. Our collector dynamically attaches to all of the running processes, so you don’t need to restart the operating system or any services running on the server. It will start collecting data immediately -- with almost no performance impact. It’s that easy. Honestly, you’ll be seeing data from your infrastructure and applications in minutes!
Automatic App Stack Metrics
AppFirst automatically detects your application stack, creates the required scripts to stream your metrics, and delivers a customized dashboard specific to your environment. Got a Ruby stack? We’ll know whether you are using MySQL or PostgreSQL, Redis, Passenger, and more. And we’ll automatically start collecting subsystem-specific metrics, such as the number of transactions, connections, slow queries, and row operations in the case of MySQL. No need to lift a finger!
