CA APM – the world’s smartest application performance management
APM monitors how well your apps are running, and thereby if your users’ experiences of your apps are positive. If your apps start to slow down (or perish the thought fail altogether), APM shows you where to start looking for the causes. That might be faulty code, database issues, overloaded networks etc., but whatever the reasons, APM points you to what needs fixing, and who’s responsible.
application overview
Experience View
Experience view lets you see the performance of your environment from the highest level of your universe and drill down to specific transactions for fault finding. Assisted Triage identifies most likely causes and provides details. Experience cards display aggregated data for groups of related business transactions available in your Universe.
You can add cards, configure and re-order the cards. Click the chart to cycle through the metrics charts. Click the health summary to expand the card and see more details Assisted Triage pull out panel. Click the title of the chart to drill down to the next level of grouping. Click the notebook icon to open an Analysis Notebook for the group of components. The summary panel show aggregated results for all cards displayed in the view.
Drilling down into your environment
From the first drill down level, the Assisted Triage panel is available as a pull out from the right. The Assisted Triage panel shows all Problems and Anomalies for the cards displayed in the view.
The Assisted Triage engine analyses the agent data from the monitored environment and identifies connections and patterns between individual alerts that indicate a developing issue. Results are displayed in the Assisted Triage panel in the Experience View and Analysis Notebook. The panel displays Anomalies and Problems. An Anomaly indicates a situation where one or more components in related transactions has triggered caution alerts. A Problem indicates a situation where one or more components in related transactions triggered warning alerts. Click the Problem or Anomaly title to see a summary of the details. Individual evidence cards show each instance of an alert that Assisted Triage linked to the issue. Click an evidence card to see the related node highlighted in the Relationship Flow.  All issues that share a connection are collected into a single Anomaly or Problem.
Analysis Notebook
The Analysis Notebook lets you investigate further into individual problems. When you identify an experience with apparent problems, open the analysis notebook. The notebook shows the transactions affected in the map format. Use the map timeline to see events and alerts. Use the standard Map perspectives feature to group the map with a predefined perspective or create your own. Click on any component in the map to see metric data in the metric viewer side by side with comparative metrics for an earlier period. Select the time period for the metric comparison using the drop-down. The assisted triage panel shows the detected problems and anomalies. Click a problem or anomaly to see details. Click an evidence box to see the affected component highlighted on the map.

This is some text inside of a div block.
Experience Cards are divided into sections:
Header
The Card title is a link to the aggregated data of Business Views the Card collects and displays. The title is greyed-out when there are no more layers to drill through. There are three status icons which surfaces Introscope alerts.
Health & Data
A Card has a Health Score. 100 represents a perfectly healthy Experience. The number of Problems and Anomalies surfaced by AT is indicated. Poor transactions are those that failed to meet SLAs.
Graphs
There are three graphs to cycle through: Transaction Volume; Response Times/Seconds; Response Time/Milliseconds.

typography
Roboto Condensed
Roboto is one of the standard typefaces used in Android and Chrome. In ATC we make use of the Roboto Condensed as space is at a premium.
Roboto is designed to work across a wide set of supported platforms.

Examples of Roboto
Hinted fonts
Hints are the instructions embedded in a font on how to modify (distort) a glyph to look better on low-resolution displays. As a tradeoff, a hinted font consumes more space than the unhinted version. Use the unhinted versions on Android and on Mac OS X, which doesn’t implement hints. Use hinted fonts on Chrome OS, Windows, and Linux.
