CORTE MADERA, Calif. -- December 11, 2012

SL Corporation^®, a leading provider of application and service-level system
monitoring solutions, today announced that their flagship product, RTView^®
Enterprise Monitor, offers a new adapter for Amazon^® CloudWatch^® data,
enabling users to view a broad array of monitoring metrics for Amazon Web
Services (AWS) resources in the context of application performance metrics.
RTView further enables users to archive their Amazon CloudWatch metrics,
maintaining a long-term history of preferred metrics for historical trend
analysis and alerting.

“Amazon EC2 has become the de facto standard for many organizations needing
additional on-demand compute power or application development and testing
resources,” said Tom Lubinski, CEO of SL Corporation. “A truly holistic view
of Application Health State would not be complete without performance
information from EC2 instances on which application components may be running.
We’re pleased to offer AWS users the ability to automate the integration of
these metrics with RTView Enterprise Monitor.”

Amazon CloudWatch enables users to monitor AWS resources in real-time,
automatically providing metrics such as CPU utilization, latency, and request
counts. SL’s RTView Enterprise Monitor is able to incorporate these metrics
along with application performance data obtained from other sources such as an
application server or message bus into holistic, single-pane-of-glass views
via a highly scalable and customizable platform.

Using the RTView Historian, Amazon CloudWatch metrics can be stored in an
arbitrary SQL database for trend analysis. Historical trends can then be used
to help define alert thresholds against Amazon CloudWatch data which, when
correlated with alerts from other application components through RTView’s
alert management system, can help users identify the source of performance
problems more quickly.

The lightweight, flexible nature of RTView Enterprise Monitor is also of
particular use in complex environments where the monitoring of both
cloud-based and on-premise components is required.
