And with multi-tenant support, individual users throughout your IT organization can login to see their own dashboard view of what’s important to them.

Self-Guided Workflows

So many times the workflows that you see in application and network performance tools today are patterned around what type of data is collected and from what elements that data is collected from. With this approach what you get is disparate views of performance metrics that are not correlated to help pinpoint the problem. With CenturyLink Performance Manager we purposely separated data collection from data presentation so that we could provide workflows patterned on how users think and logically approach solving problems. This results in logical workflows that are easy to follow and quickly drive to problem domain isolation and root cause. One user interface, correlated data and presentation, and single point of administration.

Instant Problem Domain Isolation to Application, Network or Server

CenturyLink Performance Manager combines disparate data sets into a single time correlated context. If the network delay is high, CenturyLink Performance Manager contextual site based pages also show traffic analysis data as well as device health information. This type of common sense approach to displaying data makes problem domain isolation possible by reviewing a single page rather than navigating through endless graphs of disparate data.

Advanced Transaction Analysis

CenturyLink Performance Manager automatically correlates transaction level performance across multiple application tiers within a multi-tiered application environment. From an End User Experience metric view, it is simple to see which tier of the application is degrading and then further analyze individual transactions.
