Is Gmail Feeling Slow Today?
Monitor Google Apps Performance End-to-End
Business are 'Going Google', but some IT leaders are concerned about the speed and reliability of Google Apps and how their network will hold up. It's understandable - IT leaders have years of experience and investment in on-premises environments and the tools that monitor and manage them. Moving to Google Apps should not require a loss of visibility into application performance and up-time, but it does require a new approach.
Comprehensive Google Apps performance monitoring requires:
- Proactive Monitoring from Multiple Locations
Google has been proactive with its App Status Dashboard, but it only gives insight into one side of the equation. Every business should have an end-to-end perspective of the performance of their mission-critical business services - including Gmail and Google Docs.
- Measuring Real Application Usage Over Time
Simple latency or ping tests are not sufficient to understand the true performance of Google Apps. Comprehensive monitoring requires testing the actual applications, recording baseline characteristics and tracking long term trending.
- Pinpointing the Problem
Is it the WAN, the application or the local LAN? Continuously capturing diagnostic information for troubleshooting can help to determine where the problem is and to address it more quickly.
