AppDynamics, Inc., an an application performance management (APM) company, has released a free edition of its solution called AppDynamics Lite -- a troubleshooting tool designed to help IT operations and development teams support applications in high-volume production environments. .

When severe performance problems occur, IT operations and development teams go into “firefighting” mode to identify the root cause and fix the problem. AppDynamics Lite includes 80 percent of the functionality of traditional, costly APM products..

AppDynamics Lite equips IT teams with the feature set of high-end legacy application monitoring products, enabling them to troubleshoot and diagnose performance problems. The tool takes only two minutes to install and immediately identifies typical application issues such as slow SQL, stalls, errors, and slow response time.

AppDynamics Lite enables users to:

  • Get visibility in two minutes. After a simple download and install, IT professionals can monitor application health and troubleshoot performance problems.

  • Diagnose root cause. IT professionals canfind which business transactions are showing slow response or drill down into bad requests: hotspots in code, stack traces for errors, and stalled requests.

  • Diagnose at the code level: Gain performance visibility into each class and method, as well as identify slow SQL and external calls.

The tool is available for download at no cost at http://www.appdynamics.com/free/.
