Consolidated View of All Your Servers
No matter where your servers are, AppFirst provides a consolidated view of them. Forget about having to remember multiple logins to see one cluster of servers or another. Simply login to your AppFirst account and they’ll all be there.
Physical? Virtual? Cloud? It All Works!
AppFirst monitors all of your servers, regardless of whether they are physical or virtual, on prem, in a private or public cloud, or sitting in a colo in the Antarctic. All we need is a connection to the internet so the data can stream to our backend for processing.
Manage Massive Environments Easily
Congratulations! Your application has reached new levels of success; but now your user-base is growing and you need to add lots of servers. Never fear! You can use AppFirst Server Tags and Server Sets to categorize your servers hierarchically, making them easy to monitor and manage. Simply create a “Database” Server Tag to view and manage your database servers separately from your app servers; then set up alert thresholds specific to your databases with a few mouse clicks. You can even create Server Sets for “Production” and “QA,” so you can manage your Production.Database servers separately from your QA.Database servers.
Additionally, Collector Profiles make scaling easy. Simply establish different profiles for various server roles and, when you spin up a new instance, use the correct profile to automatically configure everything for you -- alert thresholds, data collection, and more.
You might think you know which servers are communicating with one another, but how do you really know? Just because a network engineer drew a line between two servers doesn’t mean traffic flows between them. With AppFirst you’ll know how servers communicate, the amount of data flowing in between them, and the average response time. Now that’s some terrific topology.
