A new press release states, “Instana, a leading provider of automated Application Performance Management (APM) solutions for microservices, today announced the availability of the Instana Context Guide, providing GUI-based access to the company’s underlying system model called the Dynamic Graph. With the release of Context Guide, Instana becomes the first APM solution to provide a graphical navigator through managed applications’ service architecture. ‘A major challenge of modern Dev and Ops teams is the ability to see and understand what’s going on in complex application eco-systems,’ said Chris Farrell, Instana Technical Director and APM Strategist. ‘Instana’s new Context Guide allows any user to get an instant visualization of the upstream and downstream dependencies for any object or service in the application, without requiring any training or technical knowledge’.”
The release goes on, “Unlike traditional APM tools, Instana’s automated Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution discovers all application service components and application infrastructure, including Cloud infrastructure such as Azure, orchestration infrastructure like Kubernetes and Docker, application services and DevOps processes. Instana automatically deploys monitoring sensors for each part of the application technology stack and traces all application requests – without requiring any human configuration or even application restarts. The solution detects application and infrastructure changes in real-time, adjusting its own models and visualizing the changes and impacts to performance in seconds.”
