    Presentation Overview

    J2EE Applications Performance Management

    Complex Enterprise Java systems can be very difficult to manage. When performance problems occur, any number of system resources or components could be to blame: Servlets, EJBs, CPU overhead, memory utilization, application server connection pools, the database connection or connections with any other supporting systems. If not properly and quickly diagnosed, poor application performance could negatively affect the organization's ability to serve its customers and seriously impact its revenue stream. This presentation will discuss a number of typical Java application performance problems and approaches to identifying and eliminating them. You will learn that performance problems can be addressed beyond a reactionary point of view as well as preventing any future performance failures all together. This presentation will discuss the following topics: Challenges in the Java environment; performance issues in deployment and production; scenarios, samples, and tuning techniques to manage performance.

    Identifying and Resolving J2EE Application Performance Issues with Cyanea/One

    Managing enterprise J2EE applications in a heterogeneous environment presents IT managers with several challenges. Through case studies and scenario demonstrations, learn how to overcome those challenges and proactively manage your most problematic applications throughout the Application Development Life Cycle.
