  • Easy Access

    Non-intrusive collection of performance data and easy access without requiring source code modification; user-friendly products with open, standard O&M data search interfaces and performance indicator collection; and development-testing-O&M collaboration

Business Challenges
  • Poor User Experience

    During e-commerce promotions, the instantaneous access traffic can increase to dozens or even hundreds of times the average, causing extreme server load. In this case, the system may repeatedly place orders, the inventory may be repeatedly deducted, and request response is slow, causing poor user experience.

  • Burdensome Link Pressure Testing

    Complex technologies and a long period of time are required for setting up a pressure testing environment. Even them, manual pressure testing cannot simulate numerous concurrent requests that will occur during promotions. Experienced performance testing and optimization experts are scarce, and building a professional team is costly.

  • Arduous Abnormality Locating

    O&M personnel cannot access real-time app throughput, QPS, error rate, delay, load status, and SQL execution status, making detecting system problems difficult. Without effective diagnosis and analysis tools, background call chains and service dependencies are masked to system administrators, making troubleshooting slow and difficult.

  • Difficult Collaboration

    After the development, potential system performance bugs cannot be detected, because the testing department cannot simulate a large-scale promotion. If problems occur after the system goes online, O&M personnel cannot quickly and accurately locate the faults because they are not familiar with the underlying code. If multi-party development is involved, it is difficult to cooperate and assign responsibilities.
