Millions of Metrics -- No Impact to Overhead!
AppFirst uses unique, patent-pending "miss nothing" technology to continuously extract deep data from within every application, component, and running process on every server, virtual machine, and cloud instance in your environment. These real-time metrics are correlated with other data sources to provide the most comprehensive visibility you can get into your servers and apps. Millions of metrics are collected per server per day to give you the most granular view of your system data.
Multi-Source Data Collection
With AppFirst, you can forget about having to look at multiple tools; we give you a unified repository for all of the data sources you need to keep an eye on: logs, Nagios plug-ins, Windows Performance Counters, StatsD, and more. Data from all of these sources is collected continuously and then aggregated with the millions of detailed “miss nothing” metrics collected by AppFirst. That means you get the real-time visibility you need into your entire infrastructure.
Information From Within Your Stack Is Key
We collect data from within your entire application as the application executes. This unique ability enables us to capture the most detailed app information ever collected -- providing a completeness that goes beyond polling. Sitting inside your entire application stack, our collector provides detailed visibility into CPU, memory, file I/O, threads, socket I/O, page faults and much, much more for every process within that stack. Our method provides the only complete foundation, ensuring you "miss nothing." We then complement this view with your investment in scripts, counters, log data, and even business metrics.
Collect It Immediately & Easily
Installing our collector on your cloud, virtual, physical, or hybrid servers is fast and painless. With no customization required, you can quickly and easily collect detailed performance information for every process on your system.
You’ll Love the Performance
AppFirst collectors do not change the behavior of your product and minimally impact performance by 1% or less. By default, collected data is uploaded every 20 seconds; of course, this setting is configurable. On average, each file is 5-6KB; with a 6Mb internet connection, network overhead averages .04%
We Speak Your Language
Our collector works with everything! Yes, everything. Name a language, name an application component, and we support it.
Safe and Secure
We're committed to making sure all of your data is secure, so all of it is encrypted, compressed, and then uploaded to our backend servers every 20 seconds to our secure, state-of-the-art infrastructure.
