Oracle Application Performance Monitoring

OCI Application Performance Monitoring (APM) is a service that provides deep visibility into the performance of applications and enables DevOps professionals to diagnose issues quickly in order to deliver a consistent level of service. Organizations depend on their applications to support core business processes and need to take proactive steps to ensure that online customers can successfully access information and complete transactions in a timely manner. Using APM, customers have been able to reduce application performance glitches by 90%* with less effort and cost.

Introduction to Oracle Application Performance Monitoring.

Distributed tracing service

APM is a robust implementation of a Distributed Tracing System as a Service. It enables devops teams to track every step of every transaction (no sampling, no aggregation) of new and older applications running on OCI, on-premises, or on other public clouds. The service provides effective monitoring for microservices-based applications as well as legacy, multi-tier applications.

Using open standard like OpenTracing and OpenTelemetry, the service can monitor all the common programing languages. A dedicated Java agent extends the coverage to the older generation J2EE applications, allowing End-to-End transaction tracing for hybrid environments. These capabilities, combined with Logging Analytics enables developers and IT operations staff to perform the following:

Monitoring and alerting

Get automatic alerts on performance, availability, and load analysis based on a rich set of metrics enabled by instance level observation, which traces each individual transaction.


Find the exact execution details of any transaction, in real time or over long periods with comprehensive instance level diagnostics. Distributed tracing is compatible with OpenTracing/OpenTelemetry such as Zipkin and Jaeger.

Exploration and analysis

Get insights into application behavior using a flexible query language. Filter and cluster trace data using out of the box or custom dimensions for comprehensive analysis.

End-user monitoring

Delivering great end-user experience is a tough job for any application manager. APM reduces this burden by providing monitoring to track the actual experiences of each end-user, all the time, no matter where and how they access the application.

Browser instrumentation

Enables the collection of data from browser to app and measure true end-to-end user experience.

Session diagnostics

Traces each individual user session end-to-end for diagnostics. Helpdesk employees can use this capability to document problems that are otherwise hard to reproduce.

Combined with server side tracing

Connects the actions of each individual end-user to the back-end trace, enabling quick resolution to problems experienced by them. It also enables impact analysis for back-end problems, allowing DevOps staff to prioritize issues affecting large groups of end-users.

Synthetic monitoring

Proactive monitoring helps developers and operators prevent issues before users are impacted. Synthetic monitoring provides the ability to run scheduled, scripted monitors to ensure application availability.

Browser and Scripted Browser monitors

Monitor a single URL or create scripts (.side files) via Selenium IDE and execute them from within APM to visualize potential problems and understand flows by collecting and retrieving HTTP Archive (HAR) files and Screenshots.

REST API and scripted REST monitors

Monitor a single REST API or create scripts (JavaScript file) via Postman to execute a sequence of dependent API interactions which can be used to monitor APIs used on Custom applications, SaaS service integrations or third-party applications.

Combined with server side tracing

The actions of each monitor run are connected to the back-end trace, enabling quick resolution to problems experienced test executions. It also enables impact analysis for back-end problems, allowing DevOps to prioritize issues on Services or Network issues that could be affecting large groups of end-users.

OCI vantage points

Execute the monitors from multiple locations (vantage points), available in all OCI data centers.

Server monitoring

Open metrics/open telemetry compatibility

Pull metrics from any component and collect cloud native metrics at scale. Take advantage of existing Prometheus exporters or write custom metrics source to have the exact metrics needed for optimal monitoring.

AppServer metric collection

Collect metrics from Java virtual machines (JVM’s). Out-of-the-box configurations for Tomcat, Oracle WebLogic Server and other popular app servers can be extended to collect any Java Management Extensions (JMX) data.

Integration with OCI Monitoring and Logging Analytics services

Use OCI Monitoring service for alarms and notifications. Integration with OCI Logging Analytics provides drill-down into related logs for the application experiencing issues. Out-of-the-box and custom dashboards can be created to show APM collected data (server metrics and metrics based on trace data) together with log data and other data sources utilizing the monitoring service.
