Application performance monitoring (APM) is getting more and more common in practice.

The APM data obtained from the monitored application systems – ranging from aggregated response time and resource utilization values to detailed event traces of individual transactions – includes valuable information for detecting and diagnosing performance problems even before they occur. However, problem diagnosis is currently often performed manually with little guidance by APM tools.

After a brief introduction into application performance problem detection and diagnosis, this seminar will present what we have done in the context of our open-source APM framework Kieker and outline our plans for the recently started collaborative research project diagnoseIT on expert-guided automatic diagnosis of performance problems in enterprise applications.
