Application Performance Monitoring

Logical Server Requests

With the latest release of Oracle Management Cloud Application Performance Monitoring (APM), the solution now offers the ability to view server requests grouped by deployment, type, and name. This new group view is referred to as logical server request. In this new view, administrators can spot performance issues faster across a range of server groups. Administrators can apply an application classification to the servers that function as a group and define the application within this application classifier.

More Visibility into Cloud Services Discovery

Cloud Profiles are used to specify the cloud services and credentials for discovery and monitoring of cloud services and resources. When a Cloud Profile is created, several internal discovery jobs are, in turn, created and executed to discover the cloud services. In this release, more visibility into the status of these discovery jobs is provided, including errors for failed jobs. This increased visibility enables users to better assess the overall status of cloud services discovery as well as understand and resolve discovery-related issues.

UI Enhancements

The Infrastructure Monitoring pages now support the Global Time Selector’s “Latest” option. This is located under the "Custom" option of the time selector. When this option is selected, the most recent collected metric values are shown. This provides a straightforward way of seeing the most recent data values without having to think about the time period in which they were collected.
