Visualize application transactions
In today’s complex application architectures, a user transaction can involve many server tiers and the exchange of thousands of messages between them. Finding the source of delay for individual user transactions in multi-tiered server environments can be like finding a needle in a haystack. As a result, IT engineers spend significant time analyzing trace data and performance metrics, often arriving at different and conflicting conclusions on the cause of performance problems.
Features and benefits of SteelCentral™ Transaction Analyzer Plus
SteelCentral™ Transaction Analyzer Plus provides powerful, detailed analysis of a single transaction through visualization and analysis techniques to help you quickly and conclusively determine the root cause of a performance problem.
You can collate multiple related packet traces for individual user transactions from across multiple server tiers into a single multi-tier view of application and network message exchanges. Then you can visualize multi-tier transactional behavior and performance and easily communicate information to application stakeholders.
- Powerful, graphical diagrams and customizable reports help stakeholders get a clear understanding of application behavior
- Expert analysis provides automatic diagnosis of performance bottlenecks
- Quantify the effects of change on your network and application performance before deployment
- Gain ubiquitous visibility across servers, desktops, even the cloud using light-weight capture agents
- Integrates with SteelCentral Packet Analyzer Plus
SteelCentral Transaction Analyzer Plus includes a license of SteelCentralTM Packet Analyzer Plus. Packet Analyzer Plus rapidly isolates the specific packets needed by Transaction Analyzer to diagnose and troubleshoot complex performance issues. It enables users to quickly analyze multi-terabyte packet recordings from SteelCentral AppResponse 11 or other packet capture engines. Because SteelCentral Packet Analyzer Plus uses indexing to speed analysis, it can quickly dissect large trace files to focus on specific transactions for multi-tier user transaction analysis and performance prediction in Transaction Analyzer.
Troubleshoot application problems faster
"This is what I really need! SteelCentral™ Transaction Analyzer provides more value than CA NetQoS SuperAgent. I know we don't have a network issue, but I can prove this with you, not with SuperAgent." – Senior network engineer, health care provider
