jKool LLC, a new company, spinning-off from Nastel Technologies is a highly scalable, SaaS solution for streaming analytics of Big Data. The jKool API is used to add real-time analytics to applications which will now be able to stream data into the service at jKoolCloud.com.  The service analyzes the data as it arrives, delivering its users instant insight. The story of the origin of jKool is interesting.  Some of Nastel’s customers found themselves hitting up against the upper limits of the performance and scalability of their relational databases.  These customers were trying to acquire insight into their customer data in order to make strategic decisions for competitive advantage.  And to further complicate the situation, the value in the data had a shelf-life.  If they didn’t figure out what the data meant quick enough, it would be stale and worthless.

How a “Momentum Oscillator” Helps with Performance Monitoring

Your day is going great.  Traffic was light, coffee is good this morning and the application release that you’ve been working on forever is being released today. One more acceptance test run and it’s a go!  Life is good….. until the call from server support. During final testing, the application started hoarding resources, otherwise known as a leak. Abnormal usage continues to rise.  Support had no idea that there was a problem. The server has failed.  Everyone from the CIO to the guy in the mailroom is in a panic.  This has happened more times than anyone wants to admit. In most companies, you either have someone that sits and stares at a screen all day, in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, they might see something that might indicate that there is a problem.  Or, you have the support group that can’t react until the server fails and then they panic and make excuses...

Adapting to the ‘System z Expert’ Decline

The mainframe is going away … never. But the experienced folks who have been managing these complex environments are becoming harder to find. And while there are excellent mainframe-based management tools, more and more mainframe environments are being incorporated into the monitoring infrastructure of the distributed world whose technical staff is not mainframe-educated. This changing of the guard presents both a problem and an opportunity. The problem is as follows: How do we enable the distributed support team to monitor the mainframe as part of their overall monitoring infrastructure without expecting team members to become mainframe experts? The opportunity is that by accomplishing this goal, we can have a better understanding of the performance of our composite applications that traverse both distributed and mainframe tiers and, as a result, present better se...

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. It is important to analyze all of the leak possibilities,... (more)
