OCS: Application Response Measurement (ARM) Instrumentation
Application Response Measurement (ARM) provides the most precise way to measure transaction response time.
The main reason more organizations don't take advantage of ARM instrumentation is the cost and difficulty involved in adding the ARM instrumentation to all the components of a composite application.
OC Systems resolves this problem by using RootCause to add ARM calls to applications without changing the source code. The instrumentation technology in RootCause makes it possible to add, remove and modify ARM calls easily.
Using RootCause to add ARM instrumentation reduces the time it takes to get to the right set of calls, demonstrates that the ARMed system can stand up to a full load, and speeds buy-in among IT staff and management.
The net result is that the time, risk and cost involved in implementing an end-to-end ARM solution are significantly reduced.
