Instana Adds Jenkins Monitoring to Automatic APM Solution

Instana has added Jenkins Monitoring to the company’s automatic application performance management (APM) solution.

Instana’s automatic Jenkins monitoring capabilities include performance visibility of individual builds and deployments, as well as health monitoring of the Jenkins tool stack itself— including the hosts and JVMs running Jenkins. This gives Agile D\development and DevOps teams the data they need to understand exactly where they can optimize their application delivery process.

“A common theme amongst Instana customers is the need to deliver and deploy quality applications faster, and Jenkins is a critical component of that delivery process,” said Peter Abrams, Instana co-founder and COO. “The latest monitoring addition to Instana’s automated APM solution for dynamic microservice applications moves up the deployment process to tackle application builds and deployment.”

Instana’s automated APM solution discovers application service components and application infrastructure, including Jenkins, Kubernetes, and Docker. The tool automatically deploys monitoring sensors for each part of the application technology stack and traces all application requests – without requiring any human configuration or even application restarts. The solution detects changes in the application environment in real-time, adjusting its own models and visualizing the changes and impacts to performance in seconds.
