The 4 Modes of ARM-CM - Application Reliability Management via Collaborating Machines:
https://www.thinkingsoftware.com/4_modes_of_arm-cm/

Mode 1: Race Catcher™ Workstation and the VMs with Race Catcher™ Agents are all running on the same VPC (Virtual Private Cloud). One Workstation can provide the analysis of hundreds of Race Catcher™ Agents equipped VMs.

Mode 2: Race Catcher™ Workstation is running on your local laptop. VMs with Race Catcher™ Agents are running on AWS.

Mode 3: Same as Mode 2. However the local (yearly) Race Catcher™ Agent licenses where used instead of the hourly metering charge via the BYOL (Bring Your Own License) option.

Mode 4: Number of Race Catcher™ Workstations and Race Catcher™ Agents on the premises are communicating. Workstation-A can publish to its account. Workstation-B can subscribe to its account. Workstation-A can also publish to different account, and so on.
An ISV can keep track of its installed Worldwide processes health.

Race Catcher™ is specializing on potential of multithreading contentions - on locating conditions for bugs in software results caused by incorrectly synchronized multithreading - on Race Conditions.

Race Catcher™ diagnoses vulnerability of software processes. That is, if a Race Condition was diagnosed by Race Catcher™, even when a software process has provided correct result, the correct result today does not mean that the same code will provide a correct result tomorrow, or a month from now.

To see what Race Conditions can cost an organization, see some of well known examples here:
