Server Monitoring during an Application Stress Test

Monitoring

In order to pinpoint the root cause of a performance glitch during a stress test, NeoLoad collects information from the server infrastructure via its monitoring modules. This information is automatically correlated with performance measures on the application giving you actionable insights to help ensure peak performance.

Features

  • Preconfigured Monitoring: Each module ships pre-configured with the performance counters tailored to your system.
  • Threshold Alerts: NeoLoad provides threshold values –derived from industry best practices- to raise the appropriate alerts.
  • Agentless Monitoring: The design of our monitoring modules, based on industry standards, ensures non-intrusive remote monitoring.
  • Real Time: The counter values and the threshold alerts are available as soon as the test is run.
  • Import: Import data from external monitoring tools (learn more).
Note: All the modules are included with the trial license.

Why Use NeoLoad's Monitoring Modules?

Generally speaking, server monitoring allows you to monitor servers' behavior to pinpoint the causes of performance issues.

Using NeoLoad's monitoring modules allows you to:

  • Rapidly correlate the performance issues detected by NeoLoad with the various performance counters. You can easily overlay a graph curve showing errors or response times and the graph curve for a performance counter.
  • Take advantage of preselected performance counters to save time and ensure that you don’t miss an important counter.
  • Set alert thresholds for alerts to be triggered when counters return abnormal values, thus speeding up counter analysis considerably.
  • Take advantage of default threshold values to make detecting problems faster, even with no previous experience of the counters being used.
