Mendix App Monitoring

Challenge

Keeping track of performance, stability and availability of your Mendix application landscape can be a time consuming task. One or two applications are usually still manageable, but once you are dealing with a (complex) multi-app landscape, monitoring becomes increasingly hard. Log files tend to spread across different locations and performance metrics are often absent or decentralized. This results in application management being a reactive process instead of proactively resolving issues before they start to cause production issues.

   

Mendix App Monitoring

TimeSeries’ Mendix App Monitoring gives you a centralized and out-of-the box foundation for your multi-app landscape. It is possible to connect to your applications, whether they are hosted on-premise or in the Mendix cloud. It also allows to monitor non-Mendix components such as the availability and performance of external API endpoints. A common requirement for Enterprise grade applications is to keep track of important data mutations. With the Audit Trail component of our Mendix App Monitoring you are able to see who is responsible for which change in your application, why a certain object is in a certain state and you are able to get a history of each object. We store all these data in our own Big Data platform, thereby not impacting performance of the Mendix applications themselves.

Results

TimeSeries’ Mendix App Monitoring solves many challenges faced by organizations with large Mendix application landscapes.
