We are happy to announce that the CA APM 9.7 release is now officially GA and available for download from CA Support Online (CSO).


Following the CA APM 9.7 announcement on Dec. 8th, we kicked off a 12 Days of CA APM Blog Series in the holiday spirit. I challenged our CA APM team get into the holiday spirit and sing ( to the tune of the 12 days of Christmas) their way through the 12 days of CA APM 9.7 . The CA Team accepted the challenge and covered top features of APM 9.7 in 12 blogs.

In addition to features already covered in these 12 blogs, CA APM 9.7 included following functionalities as well :


End User Endpoints Monitoring: It uses a common business transaction definition to monitor the performance of an end-user business transaction in context from the backend application perspective. It also brings end point performance data into the APM AppMap, Investigator, and Transaction Traces in context of business transactions


High Performance Transaction Impact Monitor (TIM): The Transaction Impact Monitor now provides parallel processing functionality enabling users to scale up to handle as much traffic as the network card and CPUs can handle.


Real Time Transaction Metrics (RTTM): provides real-time information about the end-user experience before that experience degrades to the point that an incident is created. Users can now organize their RTTM metrics by user group to capture more effective and meaningful business metrics.


For more information, see the APM 9.7 Release Notes included with the APM 9.7 product documentation posted to the wiki.ca.com site.


CA team had a lot of fun singing along these last 12 days. In this brief and amusing video members of CA Technologies APM team sing highlighting powerful new capabilities in CA APM 9.7 to the tune of the all-time classic, The Twelve Days of Christmas.



Happy Holidays!!
