Introduction to FusionReactor APM

FusionReactor APM provides you with real-time observability metrics, combined with application, system and database performance data. Using FusionReactor you can quickly investigate and pinpoint issues and performance bottlenecks.

Our goal is to support developer and DevOps teams and enable them to identify and understand application issues before these affect your end customers. FusionReactor’s low-level insight approach will cut to the chase and deliver the answers you need in the format that you understand – which is data and code.

FusionReactor is an agent and can be used to monitor Java and ColdFusion to deliver current and historical information about web transactions, memory & CPU usage, database query performance, code – memory and thread profiling, garbage collection data and automated error detection plus much more.
