AppDynamics, a provider of application performance monitoring solutions for the cloud generation, has launched AppDynamics Lite, version 2.0 of its free java troubleshooting solution.
The new version is designed to significantly expand the solution's present capabilities. The release is aimed at supporting IT operations and development teams who need to rapidly troubleshoot and diagnose application performance problems in production.
AppDynamics Lite can add visibility into JMX metrics, while offering proactive alerting. The free version enables application development and operations teams to be notified when application performance degrades in production.
"AppDynamics Lite has helped Dev and Ops teams worldwide by equipping them with a free solution for getting full visibility and code-level detail in production environments," said Jyoti Bansal, founder and CEO of AppDynamics, in a statement.
"The addition of JMX Metrics and Alerting means that these same stakeholders will not require any other free monitoring tool such as JConsole or Visual VM in order to solve one-off problems in application performance," Bansal added.
The free Java troubleshooting product surpassed more than 50,000 downloads.
The solution can offer installation in minutes, identification and monitoring of an application's business transactions, immediate insight into common application issues such as slow SQL, stalls, errors, and slow response time.
With the additional ability to monitor JMX metrics and set up alerts that trigger based on an application's performance, AppDynamics Lite 2.0 becomes the most powerful free production monitoring tool in the industry, company officials said.
Recently, AppDynamics announced that it delivered a disruptive new .Net monitoring and management solution designed to remake the face of APM (News - Alert) for IT professionals who support critical .Net environments.
