Enteros UpBeat Solution

Enteros UpBeat delivers advanced performance problem identification, remediation and diagnosis. UpBeat is built on PPM’s common technology foundation and works together with Load2Test to support the full performance problem lifecycle.

Performance Problem Identification

Identify performance problems proactively

UpBeat employs patented statistical modeling algorithms to calculate the acceleration of critical performance metrics and clarify acceleration trending. Acceleration with clarified trending clearly identifies unexpected changes in performance much earlier than traditional absolute thresholds. After receiving timely notification by UpBeat of high-risk events, proactively responding to these trends as they are identified, systems operators and database administrators can respond proactively instead of reactively. The ultimate result is a significant, sustainable improvement in the availability of business-critical applications.

Operate across critical performance metrics

UpBeat continuously collects critical performance metrics across multiple databases, servers, application servers and other operational components. Its customizable dashboards display grid views of component performance in real-time. UpBeat ‘s dashboards can be further simplified through straightforward integration with existing systems management tools, or by consolidation of metrics from multiple components into a single logical view.

Minimize identification cost and complexity

UpBeat’s patent-pending agent architecture is easy to deploy without the help of expensive external consultants. Dynamic reconfiguration simplifies ongoing collection management. Designed to operate in heterogeneous production environments, UpBeat is broadly applicable across the data center. The UpBeat console runs on any platform that supports JVM. These features combine to reduce the cost and complexity of problem identification with UpBeat.

Performance Problem Containment and Remediation

Gain real performance insights in real time

Investigating a serious database performance problem with information even a few seconds old greatly increases the likelihood of missing the diagnosis. For such a dynamic situation only real-time information will suffice. UpBeat employs real-time delta sampling technology to provide instantaneous snapshots of database performance whenever requested.

Remediate problems faster with less effort

Identification and remediation of database performance problems involve repetitious, tedious, manual tasks, especially those conducted at the server-side command line. UpBeat decreases both the number of repetitions and the frequency with which these tasks need to be performed. The combination makes order-of-magnitude improvements in remediation efficiency not only possible but within reach.

Empower operations staff

Remediation best practice and the expertise acquired from many years of real-world problem diagnosis and remediation are embedded in each report and utility provided in UpBeat. For less experienced operations staff, using UpBeat is like having a world-class DBA guiding their efforts and pointing the way to successful remediation.

Performance Problem Diagnosis and Root Cause Analysis

Speed root cause and change impact analysis

High-transaction, business-critical applications strain the performance of even the best designed databases. In this workload regime, preservation of application availability is driven by the speed with which performance problems can be analyzed and resolved. UpBeat puts details on changed SQL or changed SQL plans, system statistics, wait events, latches – anything that could negatively impact database availability or performance – in the hands of operations staff at the moment they need them, reducing many analysis tasks from hours to seconds.

Analyze performance of complex enterprise databases

UpBeat is designed to operate efficiently and safely over a wide range of database configurations, time frames, and environments. It supports analysis across multiple databases, multiple time windows and – in the case of change impact analysis – multiple database versions from the same vendor. It can efficiently process very large amounts of performance-related data with no noticeable impact on the performance of the target databases or the servers on which they run.

Diagnose hard-to-capture performance spikes

Short-duration performance spikes are notoriously difficult to analyze successfully. The very short cycle time makes them effectively invisible to most performance analysis tools. Unlike other tools, UpBeat computes performance metrics with sub-second precision, illuminating system behavior within the time interval needed to determine root cause.

Correlate performance issues across multiple application tiers

Although multi-tier applications are common, robust support for their analysis lags behind. UpBeat removes this lag with fast, scalable correlation of performance metrics from any number of servers or back-end application tiers. UpBeat enables operations staff to understand performance problems whose root cause contains distributed factors, especially "perfect storm" problems that can only be solved by correlation of application events at the system level.

Install and apply safely, effectively and securely in business-critical production environments

Enteros and eBay co-developed UpBeat to be applied safely and effectively to live business-critical applications, especially during periods of high load, the operating regime most likely to trigger performance degradation. UpBeat employs a secure communication protocol for control and management of its collection agents to uphold the security of sensitive production environments.

Load2Test Framework

Load2Test is a powerful framework for rapid workload scalability validation and problem resolution through integrated, concurrent load testing and load test root cause analysis. Like UpBeat, Load2Test is built on PPM’s common technology platform.

Resolve Performance Problems in Applications and Infrastructure

  • Cut Test-Debug-Fix cycle time in half

    Achieving acceptable levels of scalability often requires several attempts, as performance problems are identified, analyzed and resolved. Load2Test integrates advanced Root Cause Analysis directly into the load test framework, enabling real-time performance analysis of load tests. Everything needed to determine the cause of performance problems limiting scalability is at hand seconds after a load test begins execution. The resulting compression to test-debug-fix cycle times is 50% or more.
  • Tap the power of advanced performance analytics

    Because Load2Test can process vast amounts of performance data – both historical and current – it also provides a rich set of navigation and analysis functions that can be applied to that data. Navigate using browse, search, zoom, visualize, view, and report functions. Conduct snapshot change analysis, SQL performance analysis, parameter change.analysis, SQL change analysis, visual root cause analysis, and RAC cross-node analysis. Load2Test puts all of it at your fingertips.

Validate Application Performance and Scalability

  • Reduce load test development effort by 80%

    Load testing has become an essential part of the development process for business-critical applications. Testing scalability prior to deployment results in significant cost savings and reduction of operational risk, but the act of load testing itself is tedious, resource-intensive, and costly. Load2Test significantly reduces the cost of load testing through the use of non-proprietary test scripting languages, SQL and network protocol sniffers and parsers, and zero dependence on data entry scripting.
  • Standardize load testing across the enterprise

    Load2Test was designed for real-world load testing, across a wide range of application architectures, loads, and environments. Easy to deploy and run with small runtime footprint, Load2Test is suitable for all load testing scenarios. Its back-end-centric load drivers are capable of producing very high loads very efficiently. The runtime framework is compatible with web applications, SOAP-based and RESTful web services, and desktop applications, as well as the database, web and application servers that drive them.
