This solution provides you with visibility of your applications, ensuring optimal performance and efficient use of resources.The Performance Management solution collects data from both Performance Management agents and Tivoli® Monitoring agents. Data is displayed in the Application Performance Dashboard for both Performance Management agents and their hybridized Tivoli Monitoring counterparts.
The IBM Performance Management solution has four offerings:
- IBM Application Performance Management Advanced combines IBM Monitoring, IBM Application Performance Management, and IBM Application Diagnostics into one offering.
- IBM Application Performance Management for end user experience, transaction tracking, and resource monitoring of all your application components. Application Performance Management is useful for managing your critical applications in production.

- IBM Application Diagnostics for code level visibility into your applications and the health of your application servers. Use the diagnostics dashboards to find performance bottlenecks in application code.
A new piece of documentation included with this release is the Scenarios guide. There is currently only one scenario documented, but it is very detailed and represents the most common scenario by far.
