ManageEngine announces support for big data
Applications Manager now able to monitor NoSQL systems
Real-time IT management company ManageEngine today announced that its on-premise application performance monitoring solution, Applications Manager, now supports NoSQL technologies that drive big data.
The suite can monitor application performance and provide operational intelligence for the Apache Cassandra and the MongoDB NoSQL databases. The ManageEngine solution also continues its existing support for traditional relational databases such as Oracle, MySQL and memcached.
As applications become more complex and distributed, many businesses are looking to exploit the benefits of NoSQL technologies such as Cassandra and MongoDB, which offer superior scalability and read/write performance when compared to traditional relational databases. However, these technologies can also increase the complexity of the applications they power, making it harder for IT operations teams to manage them.
According to ManageEngine, Applications Manager allows IT teams to proactively monitor the performance of Cassandra and MongoDB databases to ensure the applications based on those NoSQL databases perform as expected.
"NoSQL technologies are relatively new and expertise is hard to find, and that makes it difficult to ensure the performance of big data," said Gibu Mathew, director of product management at ManageEngine.
"With out-of-the-box support for Apache Cassandra and MongoDB, Applications Manager can empower existing IT teams and make it easy for businesses to justify their investments in big data technologies."
Applications Manager enables comprehensive Cassandra performance monitoring and administration of all nodes in a cluster from a centralised console. The key performance metrics of Cassandra monitored by Applications Manager include heap size and usage, garbage collection, IO wait, cache hit rate and compaction count.
For MongoDB, the key performance metrics tracked by Applications Manager include memory utilisation details, open connection statistics, CPU usage, database operation performance and latency, transaction details, response time, lock current queue and journaling statistics.
The support for MongoDB and Cassandra is complementary to the existing out-of-the-box support for 50+ apps such as memcached, Tomcat, JBoss and VMware.
Applications Manager is available immediately with prices starting at $795 for up to 25 servers or applications for the Professional Edition.
