21 LDAP Middleware/transactions Measures performance of LDAP services that are contacted by application servers as a part of the application architecture. Recognizes key LDAP operations, errors and user names RUM Architecture DC RUM is an effective, non-intrusive choice for monitoring business applications that are accessed by employees, partners, and customers outside the corporate enterprise or from the corporate network (intranet or extranet). DC RUM passively collects data from a switch port or tap in your data centre using an Agentless Monitoring Device (AMD). This approach complements Synthetic agent-based monitoring, which measures predictable, predefined transactions from a steady-state client. Together, agentless and agent-based monitoring give you total visibility of the infrastructure so you can see when and where slowdowns occur, respond to them faster, and prevent them from impacting business. DC RUM targets Web-based applications and their supporting middleware and databases, providing an excellent picture of end-user experience, supplemented by analysis of the network and Web server impact on transaction performance. The software highlights the most widely used Web pages to help with the prioritization of problem resolution efforts COMPUWARE CORPORATION PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION 21
22 Monitoring between server tiers provides response times for database and middleware operations. In a Citrix environment, agentless monitoring ties these back-end performance measurements to the end user who initiated the transaction. For all other enterprise applications, DC RUM can be used to gauge application performance using metrics such as user wait time, server delay, network delay, and throughput. The DC RUM solution consists of two logical tiers and a configuration component: Measurement data collector: Agentless Monitoring Device (AMD), a network device that analyses network traffic and feeds the application and network performance data to report servers as the basis for the analysis of end-user experience and IT resource usage. There may be one or more, depending on the sizing requirements and monitored application/network topology COMPUWARE CORPORATION PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION 22
23 Report server: Central Analysis Server (CAS). CAS is the main reporting component for DC RUM. CAS reads data from one or more AMDs and Network Monitoring Probes, maintains a short-term and long-term database of the measurements data, and provides reports, alerts, and configuration means for the whole DC RUM system. RUM Console: DC RUM component for configuring the monitoring system (both monitoring and reporting devices), traffic monitoring rules and the alert system. It also enables you to verify the quality of sniffing points traffic detection, record traffic and preview the captured traffic traces, view top application categories, and it offers a step-by-step guide to configuring application traffic monitoring for first-time Compuware APM users and a wizard-based process for creating and editing software service.

30 Proactively discovers performance issues before end users experience them Synthetic Monitoring Architecture Synthetic Monitoring is a complete end-user experience solution that monitors, captures, reports and pinpoints the cause of application performance problems from an end-user s perspective. Application transaction response times are monitored from the workstations and compared to service level thresholds. Application diagnostic information is captured 24x7 and reported when the service level thresholds are exceeded. The Synthetic Monitoring is built by three components: a. Synthetic Monitoring Console The Synthetic Monitoring Console is the central user interface for Private Enterprise active monitoring. It is installed anywhere in the enterprise and provides centralized control of the Synthetic Monitoring components. Use the Synthetic Monitoring Console to directly apply configuration changes to all Agent Managers and Agents, as well as perform on-demand or automatic health checks of Agents, view logs and test the connection between an Agent and the Agent Manager. b. Agent Manager/Parent Agent Manager The Agent Manager is the component that connects directly to the agents and processes the data collected by the agents and alerts. The Agent Manager performs network packet capture analysis and generates reports for the collected packet files associated with Synthetic Monitoring. This is done by using a runtime component of the Transaction Trace Analysis application. Once the data is collected and processed, the Agent Manager stores the collected data in the Synthetic Monitoring SQL database. For scalability, Agent Managers can be implemented with a hierarchical structure so that child Agent Managers report to a designated parent Agent Manager. All data collected by a child Agent Manager is propagated to its parent Agent Manager and stored in its database. c. Active Agents Synthetic Monitoring agents monitor the actual response time of key business transactions by detecting start and stop events for each defined transaction. You configure the agents to perform specific monitoring tasks base d on the setup information defined in the Synthetic Monitoring Console. Data is gathered by Active Agents. These agents are used for Active Monitoring. Workstations, known as Active Agents, are installed with the Active Agent software and Synthetic Monitoring Recorder, the scripting tool of solution. These Active Agents represent predictable users in a known environment performing measurements at scheduled intervals COMPUWARE CORPORATION PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION 30
