Topaz 3.0 also introduces custom monitors that collect web and application server information for Alaire, Ariba, BEA, Blue Martini, Broadvision, IBM WebSphere and others....."
"Designed to handle very large volumes of traffic, Topaz Prism traces real-time requests from the client to the server and collects the Web transaction data, analyzes the data in real time and generates a series of online reports that include both high-level overviews and the ability to drill down into greater detail...."
"In addition to alerting IT to end-user performance problems, Topaz 3.0 collects information from resources on Web servers, application servers, and database servers. Topaz 3.0 also introduces new custom server monitors that collect application specific information for Web servers such as Microsoft IIS, Apache and Netscape; application servers such as Allaire, Coldfusion, Ariba, Blue Martini, Broadvision, IBM Websphere, SilverStream, and Microsoft ASP; and database servers such as Microsoft SQL server and Oracle. Topaz 3.0 collects information from both the end-user presentation layer and system resources and correlates end-user performance problems to an application specific resource problem shortening the time for performance resolution."
