Its that time of the year again! We are happy to inform you that Applications Manager 8.5 is released. We have been receiving some positive feedback from customers and we were able to incorporate those feedback into the product. With 8.5 release, Applications Manager will now have out-of-the-box support for Database Query monitoring and Active Directory monitoring.
Database query monitoring will enable the user to check the status of a particular database by executing a query. He/she will also be able to monitor specific queries execution time which will enable them to find out any issue caused due its lag.
