If you are at Velocity this week, be sure to visit Circonus at booth 103 to see how they’ve incorporated RPM metrics into their dashboard. Pretty cool stuff. Now you can use Circonus to correlate RPM with other Circonus services to get a big picture of performance bottlenecks. It’s pretty simple to get started. Just enable the public data API in your RPM-monitored app. Then, in the metric setup screen in Circonus, you can easily add a very nice subset of RPM metrics from your app.
Now you’ve got RPM data that you can correlate with any other service for which Circonus is reporting metrics, including Web, DNS and SSH data from Circonus’s own agents or statistics from Google Analytics, or import data formatted with Resmon XML. Want to cross reference your Apdex score with a specific server slowdown? Want to correlate your app’s response time with the network performance issue from 1-2 am last night? In just a few clicks it’s done.
Oh, and while you’re visiting Circonus at Velocity, be sure to ask them for a special promotion code that entitles you to a free 30-day upgrade to RPM Gold.
