Application Monitoring

Definition - What does Application Monitoring mean?

Application monitoring is a process that ensures that a software application processes and performs in an expected manner and scope. This technique routinely identifies, measures and evaluates the performance of an application and provides the means to isolate and rectify any abnormalities or shortcomings.

Application monitoring is also known as application performance monitoring (APM) and application performance management (APM).

Techopedia explains Application Monitoring

The application monitoring process is generally enabled through specialized APM software that is integrated within the primary application that is being monitored. Typically, application monitoring provides runtime metrics of system performance, which are provided to the application administrator. These metrics include the transaction time, system response, transaction volume and overall health of the back-end infrastructure. Generally, the metrics are delivered via an APM software dashboard in the form of graphical figures and statistics. These figures make it possible to evaluate the performance of an application or the overall application infrastructure. Application monitoring also assess the end-user experience and component-level performance of the application.
