Monitoring != Root cause analysis

APM gives news, yCrash gives answer

Industry has seen cutting-edge Application Performance Monitoring tools (i.e., AppDynamics, NewRelic, Dynatrace) and infrastructure monitoring (i.e., Nagios, Ngmon) tools. These monitoring tools are great at detecting the symptoms of the problems. i.e., they can detect CPU spiked by x%, memory degraded by y%, and response time shot up by z seconds. But they dont answer the question: Why did the CPU spike up? Why is memory degraded? Why is response time increased?

To answer these questions, you need to capture & analyze various application and system level artifacts such as garbage collection logs, thread dumps, heap dumps, nestat, iostat, vmstat, top, disk usage, kernel parameters, … and several more artifacts from your application to identify the root cause of the problem. yCrash – the root cause analysis tool does this job for you automatically. yCrash captures and analyzes these artifacts and identifies the root cause of the problem instantly.
