CitraTest APM
End to End Response Time
Monitoring for Every Application
CitraTest APM
Performance testing is undertaken not only to find bugs in the IT infrastructure, but to eliminate bottlenecks as well as invent a baseline for future performance testing. Within the IT industry, performance testing applies to the testing performed on applications in order to determine how fast a particular aspect of a system performs in a particular work environment. It can also serve to validate and verify other quality attributes of the system like availability, application health, reliability, usage etc. For meaningful performance testing, a clearly defined set of expectations is required.

CitraTest APM is an all encompassing performance testing solution that addresses the needs of end to end performance, application monitoring based on the real user experience, availability monitoring and Service Level Agreement enforcement for all applications across an organization. With Tevron's proprietary monitoring technology, no application is left behind.

CitraTest APM periodically executes synthetic transactions, taking response time measurements along the way. By automating the driving of an application just like a real user at the client end, CitraTest APM can ensure that all critical aspects of an application or service are available and working within limits and if not, generate an alert. Using the synthetic transaction model provides the benefits of being both pro-active and consistent. For example, the IT teams can set-up active monitoring where they receive alerts before the actual users access application. When it comes to performance testing, CitraTest APM can also measure the availability and response time of the application.

While most application performance management products are intrusive to the production environment, CitraTest APM installs absolutely no elements on any application or database servers for performance testing, thereby making CitraTest APM fully non-intrusive and independent of the application environment, just like a real user.

Aberdeen "Best-in-Class companies identified by Aberdeen surveys and interviews were found to be twice as likely as others to manage deployed services proactively. This demonstrates and underscores how solutions such as Tevron's CitraTest APM can help companies to maximize the business value of their IT investments by monitoring application performance proactively and comprehensively."
