Show me every transaction that missed the SLA this week?

monitoring SLA’s – That may sound like an easy and obvious request, but it can be incredibly complex to get a useful answer.

Firstly, you need to be able to describe your SLA (service level agreement) analytically, and then secondly you need to be able to trace each transaction from beginning to end to be able to identify any attributes that didn’t meet the definition within the SLA.

The classic tools-sets that operations teams use, do not provide a simple way to solve for this need, instead large teams of operations people end up spending a huge amount of their time with a mix of monitoring tools, apm tools, white boards and conference calls to find the answer. And even then, it’s rare that everyone is satisfied with the result.

There is a better way!

Nastel uses the configuration information already laid down within messaging middleware systems (using existing knowledge) to dynamically trace and track each transaction, and then overlays performance data from each associated system to describe the real performance as experienced by the user.

This is then visualized as a workflow, and by using machine learning each transaction can be compared to the historical record to identify any section of a transaction that is likely to miss any given SLA and allow you to focus on proactive remediation. The result is an entirely new level of business understanding, the end of war room calls and the rapid predictive discovery of root causes of issues.

Nothing else works this way, and the result is dramatically more efficient and effective. Nastel provides you a simpler way to see every transaction that missed the SLA this week!
