Get Real-Time Performance Insights Across Your Apps, Networks, Servers & End Users

Build and deliver high-performing applications, infrastructure and networks on and off the cloud. Continuously monitor them to get end-to-end visibility and end-user experience insights around-the-clock.


We’re now able to look inside of the developers’ code – without having to modify the code – while it’s running in our production environment. That’s fantastic. I can’t imagine someone running a site of any real size without this capability. - Eric McCraw, Global Web Systems Manager for IT, National Instruments

Measure impact and share performance insights across development, QA, and production. Detailed diagnostics help development and support teams fix problems without having to reproduce them.


"SteelCentral™ AppInternals helps us immediately identify performance slowdowns and resolve any application-related performance problems before our members are even aware of them." CIO, AAA (Missouri)

"SteelCentral™ AppInternals has proven successful where traditional tools and approaches have fallen short. We previously spent an average of 2000 hours yearly on application performance issues and resolved only about 65% of the cases. With AppInternals, we now resolve more than 95% of the reported cases and have been able to significantly reduce the mean time spent on each case." Web Systems Engineer, National Instruments

"SteelCentral™ AppInternals has proven itself to be a valuable tool for J2EE application performance troubleshooting at BAE Systems. We previously used several software packages to identify patterns and problem areas, which can now be performed with Riverbed's integrated solution, SteelCentral™ AppInternals. The level of detail shown by SteelCentral™ AppInternals has given us valuable insight into our J2EE and .NET applications, which enabled us to resolve significant performance bottlenecks." Principal Systems Engineer, BAE Systems

“SteelCentral™ AppInternals gives us a comprehensive application performance toolkit – with all the usual features such as the tracing and memory analysis, as well as unique features such as metrics correlation, that we can leverage to solve different kinds of problems. [AppInternals] allows us to attack the problem from multiple perspectives: in the code, the database, and the overall application system.”  Manager, Data Center Infrastructure, Prometric

“We reduced outages by 80% within 30 days of using Riverbed.”  VP of IT, Major Broadcasting Company
