  • Application Monitoring

    Real-time monitoring of distributed applications.

    Application Topology Discovery

    Automatically generates a topology of distributed applications based on the call references through dynamic analysis and intelligent computing of tracing information.

    Drill-down of Metrics for Typical Diagnostics Scenarios

    Performs drill-down analysis of the metrics, such as the application response time, number of requests, and error rate. You can view the analysis results by application, event, or database.

    Capture of Unusual and Slow Transactions

    Analyzes timeouts and exceptions based on traces and automatically identifies them in the relevant call operations, such as SQL statements or MQ API operations.

    Transaction Snapshot Query

    Intelligently collects trace-based unusual transactions and identifies the sources of exceptions or errors by troubleshooting detailed data.

  • Frontend Monitoring

    Real-time user experience monitoring.

    High Time-efficiency

    Detects the real-time response time and error rate of the websites that users access.

    Monitoring Analysis Using Multiple Dimensions

    Analyzes user access rates and errors by geological region, ISP, or browser.

    Page Exception Monitoring

    Monitors and diagnoses the performance and success rate of asynchronous API operation calls.

  • Custom Monitoring

    Advanced custom business monitoring.

    Diversified Data Sources

    Supports multiple types of real-time data sources, such as logs, SDKs, Message Queue, and Loghub.

    Real-Time Orchestrations of Computing and Storage Resources

    Allows you to orchestrate real-time computing and storage modes based on the specified dimensions and calculations.
