The paper focused on evaluating the different approaches currently
used for performance monitoring of distributed applications.
Therefore a classification and analysis of available approaches has
been done. Overall result was, that current techniques are not
sufficient to solve today's service management problems. The paper
concludes with open research questions in the area of application
performance management that - in our opinion - are most important to
be tackled in the forthcoming years.
Our current work focuses on the research questions raised above.
Especially in the area of component based application development some
promising prototypes are under development that might lead to a high
degree of instrumentation automation. In the area of automated
transaction correlation we already have achieved some first substantial
progress which is about to be published soon.
