Application monitoring 3D topology

Last Updated: Mar 25, 2019

ARMS Application Monitoring 3D Topology can show the health condition of applications, services, and hosts, in addition to the upstream and downstream dependencies of the applications. With the 3D Topology, you can quickly identify the services that caused failures, applications influenced by the failures, and associated hosts, which means you can investigate the root cause of the failures thoroughly, and then fix the issues quickly.

Quick start

Read the interactive document below to understand ARMS Application Monitoring 3D Topology. For the best experience, please open it in a new window.

Where to find it

Follow the steps below to enter ARMS Application Monitoring 3D Topology.

  1. In the left-side navigation pane, selectApplication Monitoring > Application List.

  2. On the application list page, take action as needed.

    • To view the 3D Topology of all applications, click View 3D Topology of All Applications (Beta) on the top.

    • To view the 3D Topology of a single application, click 3D Topology in the Actions column.

      Tip:

      The application list page is displayed in list view by default. If it’s in card view, then click the 3D Topology icon in the top-right corner of the application card.

Overview

On the Overview page that is displayed by default, you can see all content of the service layer, application layer, and host layer. In the top-right corner of the page, you can find the number of hosts, applications, and services.

On the overview layer, you can perform the following tasks:

  • In the top-left corner, click the time range area, and select specific start and end time in the pop-up time picker.
  • In the timeline on the top of the page, drag the slider to change the time range of the current view.
  • In the search box in the upper-right corner of the page, enter your key words and press Enter to search.
  • Drag with your mouse to view the data on all three layers from different angles.
  • Click any object in the view to check metrics related to that object on the right-side panel.

Service

The service layer shows the services that your applications depend on.

ARMS APM 3D Topology - Service Layer

Services under each application are grouped into a block. The more the services get called, the bigger their block is. Different statuses of the services are indicated in different colors.

  • : Service calls are normal
  • : Error rate of the service is relatively high
  • : No response for the service

Tip: The response time threshold of the services is configurable. In the left-side navigation pane, click the triangle icon next to Service to open the threshold setting box. Drag the slider in the setting box to set the threshold.

After you click a service, the right-side panel shows the following information:

  • Service name
  • QPS: Queries Per Second
  • RT (ms): Response Time (in milliseconds)
  • ErrQps: Error QPS (Error queries per second)

Tip: In the QPS, RT, and ErrQps areas, the left-side numbers are the average value within selected time range, while the corresponding line chart is on the right side.

Application

The application layer shows the applications and their upstream and downstream dependencies, including the middleware they depend on. By the direction of the connecting lines, you can tell who’s calling whom.

ARMS APM 3D Topology - Application Layer

After you click an application, the right-side panel shows the following information of that application:

  • Application Name
  • QPS: Queries Per Second
  • RT (ms): Response Time (in milliseconds)
  • ErrQps: Error QPS (Error queries per second)

Tip: In the QPS, RT, and ErrQps areas, the left-side numbers are the average value within selected time range, while the corresponding line chart is on the right side.

Docker/ECS

The Docker/ECS layer shows the hosts your applications.

ARMS APM 3D Topology - Host Layer

Each cube is a host. All hosts are grouped by applications. Different statuses of the hosts are indicated in different colors.

  • : Normal
  • : Slow
  • : Warning
  • : Exception
  • : Offline

After you click a host, the right-side panel shows the following information of that host:

  • IP address and basic information of the host:
    • IDC: Internet Data Center
    • Unit: The unit with the IDC
    • Host: Host name
    • CPU: number of cores
    • JVM: JVM version
    • Tomcat: Tomcat version
  • CPU: CPU usage
  • MEM: memory usage
  • LOAD: System load

Tip: In the CPU, MEM, and LOAD areas, the left-side numbers are the average value within selected time range, while the corresponding line chart is on the right side.
