We are excited to announce yet another feature update to ManageEngine Applications Manager. Infact, we recently had two back to back releases, version 10.7 and 10.8. My blog will take you through the gist of what has gone into these releases.

Support for monitoring the Microsoft Cloud Platform- Windows Azure

Applications Manager’s Windows Azure monitoring capability will aid the IT administrators to view the performance of the Web, Worker and VM Roles as visually comprehensible graphs and reports.

Wndows Azure OverviewUsing Windows Azure monitoring in ManageEngine Applications Manager, you will be able to:

  • Discover Windows Azure applications and all its role instances.

  • Monitor any error with the Windows Azure application deployment and get notified through our Diagnostic Infrastructure logs monitoring.

.NET Transaction Monitoring

With the .NET Monitoring capability of Applications Manager, IT administrators can monitor the performance of complex .NET Web Transactions from the end user to database perspective. It will help the development team to identify slow spots in transactions by showing method level traces and database queries.

Applications Manager provides Apdex user experience scores for .NET components, helping IT communicate application performance achievements to the line of business managers in business-friendly language.
