Anturis, founded in 2011 by serial entrepreneur Serguei Beloussov – founder of Parallels, has announced Anturis 2.0, an enhanced version of its IT monitoring and troubleshooting solution for SMBs and web hosting providers. The solution enables users to optimize their Java applications with Anturis Java Virtual Machine (JVM) monitoring. Anturis 2.0 also features Parallels Plesk Uptime monitoring capabilities.
The JVM is an integral part of an IT system’s Java application. Java was designed to allow programs to be built once and then run on any platform. JVM makes this possible by interpreting Java binary code for various hardware platforms, so that they can perform a Java program’s instructions.
However, Enterprise Java Applications are complex and the JVM hides its memory handling details. Improper clean-up of JVM memory can cause the application to slow. As a result, application administrators need to ensure optimal JVM configuration and monitor JVM memory and performance.
To simplify this complex process, Anturis JVM monitoring allows users to monitor total memory usage, heap, non-heap and pool memory usages, threads and classes of JVMs, to ensure the best performance. With Anturis JVM monitoring, users can monitor all of their Java applications in one web-console. Users can also set up warning and error thresholds for each parameter for each Java application running in the JVM. Anturis provides alarms and notifications to enable system administrators to take corrective actions and improve Java Application performance.
Parallels Plesk Uptime Monitor
Anturis Version 2.0 also includes Parallels Plesk Uptime Monitor, a new feature of Anturis Parallels Plesk plugin. This new Plesk Uptime Monitor periodically checks if servers are reachable and function properly. Users can start basic monitoring of their servers in the Parallels Plesk Panel – even if they don’t have an Anturis account.
For users who require more advanced monitoring features (including transactions monitoring, email, SMS or voice call alerts, reports, detailed graphs, dashboards, etc.), they can create an Anturis account through the Plesk Panel. Users can share server uptime status on their websites via the new Anturis Uptime widget, which shows website uptime percentage. This widget would enable businesses to show their customers that their web service is reliable.
