Redirected from: application performance monitoring

Definition: application performance management

Monitoring the response times and behavior of an application. As users wait for a Web page or other set of data to download into their computer or mobile device, they understand the value of fast response times. However, they are not always aware of the resources the software may take up, such as using an excessive amount of memory (RAM). Application performance management (APM) measures both of these elements.
