This EMA paper reviews past approaches to providing application awareness and context for performance management and the unique approach now being offered by ExtraHop Networks.

There is no denying that high-performing, highly reliable networks are becoming increasingly important. In this age of growing application diversity, server virtualization and cloud adoption, when workloads and services are moving flexibly between systems and locations in dedicated, hybrid, and outsourced infrastructure models, one of the few constants is that networks must keep everything in contact and provide the communications element which allows all the parts to work together as a whole. Despite this, the productivity and agility that organizations look to their IT organizations to provide is primarily embodied not within the network, but rather within the applications and services that the network is entrusted to deliver. IT operations teams recognize this link and are looking for context-aware monitoring techniques that can provide insight into application traffic and transactions to reveal quality, health, issues, and problems. A number of approaches have been brought to market to address this need, but have fallen short either due to a lack of complete visibility or a lack of analytical depth or sophistication. New and innovative approaches are needed to close the gap between infrastructure and application performance visibility, and to provide actionable intelligence focused on the true center of IT's value to host organizations -- applications and services.
