Evident ClearStone 4.6 Gives DevOps and Support Teams New Monitoring and Troubleshooting Tools for JBoss, WebLogic, and NoSQL Applications

New Software Release Adds Operational Health Dashboard and Fine-Grained Alerting

ASBURY PARK, NJ--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - Evident Software, the leading provider of Application Performance Management (APM) for NoSQL, data caching, and Java applications, today announced the availability of Evident ClearStone® 4.6, the company's production-class solution for monitoring and managing all tiers of enterprise applications. ClearStone 4.6 introduces new features to help development, operations, and support teams monitor and troubleshoot business-critical applications. Using ClearStone 4.6, engineers can correlate the status of JBoss or WebLogic application servers with other data tiers, such as a Cassandra data caching tier or system-level metrics. This multi-tier correlation helps engineers rapidly identify the root cause of performance problems.

New Features Improve Visibility and Accelerate Troubleshooting

ClearStone 4.6 introduces an Operational Health Dashboard that enables engineers to discover at a glance the health of application resources. ClearStone determines each resource's health based on system metrics, key performance indicators (KPIs), and the status of events. The Operational Health Dashboard presents green, yellow, and red indicators of a resource's health over time. Support engineers can click on a health indicator to discover the underlying details and to read troubleshooting tips written by the applications developers. By putting this information at a support engineer's fingertips, ClearStone 4.6 accelerates troubleshooting and helps bridge the divide between Development and Operations.

ClearStone 4.6 also introduces fine-grained alerting that enables specific users or groups of users to be notified when specific conditions occur. This fine-grained alerting helps developers and operations teams ensure that the proper people are notified when specific error conditions or outages occur.

"With the release of ClearStone 4.6, we're giving developers and operations engineers unprecedented visibility into enterprise and Web applications, including 'Internet-scale' applications that work with vast amounts of data," said Scott Barnett, CEO of Evident Software. "ClearStone lets developers and operations engineers see all tiers of an application, now including the JBoss or WebLogic application server tier, in a 'single pane of glass.' This comprehensive view of real-time and historical data gives IT departments the information they need in order to optimize application performance."
