The new Correlatron feature helps FactFinder users accelerate root cause analysis

BlueStripe Software, a leader in application transaction management solutions, today announced the availability of transaction-specific analytics for problem isolation. BlueStripe’s FactFinder transaction monitoring solution now includes the Correlatron™ analytics engine that accelerates root cause analysis of application and transaction issues by showing users the most likely problem areas when an issue occurs.

Correlatron pares down the millions of metrics in typical application environments to just the thousands that are relevant to an application or transaction path; then analyzes that data to identify a small set of candidates most closely related to the problem. By leveraging FactFinder’s comprehensive transaction dependency awareness, Correlatron automates the process of identifying which metrics are likely connected to a specific problem (such as slow Login Response Time).

“Correlatron takes transaction performance management to a new level, further reducing the time and effort it takes to solve application and transaction issues,” said Chris Neal, CEO of BlueStripe. “FactFinder has proven itself as a great monitoring tool that reduces the time it takes to fix problems. Correlatron will make it possible to solve even the most complex problems quickly.”

Correlatron, included with FactFinder v5.6, includes:

Automatic filtering of metrics based on application and transaction dependencies
Statistical filtering from thousands of metrics to about a dozen metrics
Determination of all transactions and applications dependent on a specific metric / resource
An analytics workbench for accelerating problem solving, hypothesis testing, and metric analysis

“The ability to understand the relationships between application components and infrastructure is a critical aspect in the troubleshooting process. The addition of analytics technologies and algorithms that allow relationships to be built that are indirect or loosely coupled and not easily detected illustrate the impact that these methods can have in APM technologies,” said Jonah Kowall, Research Director at Gartner.

BlueStripe’s FactFinder transaction performance management solution automatically follows transactions in real-time, wherever they go – across tiers, across platforms and across architectures – even into virtual machines, private cloud, and third party services. This unmatched visibility into all the interconnections and dependencies, combined with monitoring and mapping, root cause analysis, benchmarking, forecasting and planning, enables IT Operations teams to more effectively manage application and transaction availability.

Correlatron is the initial step in BlueStripe’s larger strategy for addressing the growing need for analytics in application and transaction management.
