Spring Insight Monitoring & Management

Spring Insight, a component of VMware vFabric Application Performance Manager (APM), is a key management tool designed for Spring applications that captures Web application events known as traces. A trace represents a thread of execution. Traces are usually started by an HTTP request but can also be started by a background job. A trace contains operations, which represent significant points in the execution of the trace, for example, a JDBC query or transaction commit.

Insight uses trace data to calculate summary information that helps identify the root cause of application performance issues. VMware vFabric tc Server instances that run production Web applications run the Spring Insight Agent application, providing a convenient way to monitor applications across all servers and to get detailed statistics from individual servers.

Hyperic, also a component of APM, provides the infrastructure monitoring of the Insight server, agent and application service, ensuring administrators that the monitoring of the application traces is up and running.
