Cloud-Scale Application Performance Monitoring with SDN and NFV

Guyue Liu, Timothy Wood
2015 2015 IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering  
However, this makes it difficult for the cloud provider to identify which tier of the application is the bottleneck and how to resolve performance problems.  ...  Our system leverages knowledge of topology and routing information to build relationships between each tier of the application, and detect and locate performance bottlenecks by monitoring the network from  ...  Multi-Tier Web Application Performance Debugging Our first use case shows how NetAlytics can detect bottlenecks and debug network performance issues by monitoring response time statistics.  ...

FChain: Toward Black-Box Online Fault Localization for Cloud Systems

Hiep Nguyen, Zhiming Shen, Yongmin Tan, Xiaohui Gu
2013 2013 IEEE 33rd International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems  
In this paper, we present a black-box online fault localization system called FChain that can pinpoint faulty components immediately after a performance anomaly is detected.  ...  We have implemented FChain on top of the Xen platform and tested it using several benchmark applications (RUBiS, Hadoop, and IBM System S).  ...  Any opinions expressed in this paper are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of NSF, ARO, or U.S. Government.  ...

Mt-wave

2011 Proceeding of the second joint WOSP/SIPEW international conference on Performance engineering - ICPE '11  
We have built MT-WAVE, a system that integrates with the different tiers of a web application (including a browser extension) and collects light-weight instrumentation to a central location via X-Trace  ...  We postulate that multi-tier profiling, starting at the web browser, is the appropriate way to solve this problem.  ...  in place to receive log messages from these different systems, collecting and aggregating profiling information will further help the analyst understand the behaviour in the system, especially by providing  ...

Distributed Diagnosis of Failures in a Three Tier E-Commerce System

Gunjan Khanna, Ignacio Laguna, Fahad A. Arshad, Saurabh Bagchi
2007 Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems. Proceedings  
Complex applications deployed in multi-tier environments make diagnosis challenging because of fast error propagation, black-box applications, high diagnosis delay, the amount of states that can be maintained  ...  The monitoring system (the Monitor) passively observes the message exchanges between the components and, at runtime, performs a probabilistic diagnosis of the component that was the root cause of a failure  ...  There is an increased reliance on Internet services supported by multi-tier applications where the typical three tiers are the web, middleware and database tier.  ...
