ManageEngine Applications Manager Gains Support for NoSQL Databases

ManageEngine has announced that its on-premise application performance monitoring solution, Applications Manager, can now monitor application performance and provide operational intelligence for Apache Cassandra and MongoDB NoSQL technologies that drive big data..

According to ManageEngine, NoSQL technologies such as Cassandra and MongoDB offer greater scalability and read/write performance compared to traditional relational databases, but they can also increase the complexity of the applications they power. The company claims that Applications Manager makes it easier for IT teams to manage these complex applications because they can "proactively monitor the performance of Cassandra and MongoDB databases to ensure the applications based on those NoSQL databases perform as expected."

"NoSQL technologies are relatively new and expertise is hard to find, and that makes it difficult to ensure the performance of big data," said Gibu Mathew, director of product management at ManageEngine, in a prepared statement. "With out-of-the-box support for Apache Cassandra and MongoDB, Applications Manager can empower existing IT teams and make it easy for businesses to justify their investments in big data technologies."

Applications Manager retains support for traditional relational databases, such as Oracle, MySQL, and memcached, and can monitor the performance of both relational and nonrelational databases. According to the company, it offers out-of-the-box support for over 50 types of application servers, servers, and databases on physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures.

Key Cassandra performance metrics monitored by Applications Manager include:

  • Heap size and usage;
  • Garbage collection;
  • IO wait;
  • Cache hit rate; and
  • Compaction count.

Key MongoDB performance metrics monitored by Applications Manager include:

  • Memory utilization details;
  • Open connection statistics;
  • CPU usage;
  • Database operation performance and latency;
  • Transaction details;
  • Response time;
  • Lock current queue; and
  • Journaling statistics.

Applications Manager is available now in four editions: Free, Cloud Starter, Professional, and Enterprise. Prices for the Professional edition start at $795 for up to 25 servers or applications.
