How do I analyze application behavior?

As a manager in charge of a multiple-office company’s IT you want to know 24/7 what happens on your network and if your applications function as they should. If a critical problem occurs, you want to be able to take immediate action. But how do you know where to start?

Naturally, a thorough analysis starts with a good cup of coffee. And while you take the first sip, you turn to your monitoring tool. A truly professional monitoring tool comes with a unified dashboard, which presents data in a convenient and easy-to-understand way, showing data of different types of devices in one view.


As you click on, you dig deeper until you find the solution. And as you take the last sip of coffee, you let the tool create some meaningful performance reports and combine them into one neat document. That’s it – you’re all set for the next board meeting.

Some dashboards look all fancy and nice and come with a lot of bells and whistles. The challenge, though, is to present relevant data in a manner that suits your specific purposes and is easy to understand. After all, the tool should work for you, not the other way around.

In our recent e-paper, NetDialog’s software architect Tim Ruhl shares his vision on the use of the dashboard as part of the monitoring tool. His question to you: Could you do without it?
