Once an application is deployed to a production environment, monitoring is one of the key aspects that comes into play.

This chapter gives some recommendations with regards to the techniques and tools that can be used to monitor the performance of an application, bearing in mind technical and business metrics.

Throughout this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Monitoring
    • Application Monitoring
