Alexander Podelko, a performance expert working with Oracle, recently wrote a blog post in which he takes a look at the current state of the APM market and what he thinks needs to change in order for companies to get the most out of their solutions.

Few enterprises have a division of IT called APM. The real chall... (more)

Where Is Your Focus for Memory Leak Detection?

*&%#* The system is running slow again!  Now what? Is there a space hog application sucking up all my resources?  Did we just crash? No, must not say that word...must not say that word...  ...still running, just sloooowly.  I wonder if anything new has been installed… Nice if they told me. I overheard that something new might have been installed  last week.  Could there be a memory leak?  Are they checking for one?  Are they looking in the right place? Hide and seek with a leak is NO fun.  How many times have you sat staring at your monitor until your eyes burn and blur, trying to figure out where the problem lies? There are so many places to look for a leak, that it is virtually impossible to find manually. And how do I tell the difference between a leak and increased demand?  The symptoms can be  similar.
