With networks becoming more complex, small and medium businesses are finding it more difficult to understand how their applications are performing. In response, Correlsense, a supplier of monitoring solutions, enhanced its SharePath RUM line.solutions, enhanced its SharePath RUM line. The product is designed to help businesses isolate problems and pinpoint bottlenecks that exist in the data centers, networks, or applications. The product measures items, such as the speed at which a data center processes user requests, the network delays between the end user and the data center, and the time it takes a browser to deliver a Web page. It is designed to trace workloads, response times, payloads (HTTP requests, SQL statements, etc.) and throughputs on each step of a transaction.

The monitoring solution is available in three configurations. SharePath RUM (Real user monitoring) Express is a free solution designed for one application and a couple of servers. SharePath RUM Enterprise is geared to traditional applications and SharePath Cloud focuses on public, say Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), as well as private hosted applications. Pricing for the latter two solutions starts at $1,000.

Founded in 2005, Correlsense is one of many vendors that recently focused on enhancing visibility into application performance. Because its approach is newer, its solutions can be less expensive and more functional than traditional monitoring tools. However, competition in this market space has been intensifying, and the company's relatively small size (it has about 60 employees) leaves its future as an open question.
