Participants will execute on core concepts critical to understanding performance problems and bottlenecks in modern multi-tier networked applications. In addition, they will analyze metrics collected using packet capture and inspection techniques. Participants will also gain hands on configuration and problem solving experience using the SteelCentralTM solutions described above. Finally, the course includes a brief introduction to SteelCentralTM AppInternals and discusses how it can be used to extend performance monitoring with server-side transaction tracing and environmental metric collection.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
