Boundary Adds Application Context Data to Splunk Enterprise

Boundary Adds Application Context Data to Splunk Enterprise 
Boundary's Unique, Real-Time Application Topology Now Available
Directly Within Splunk(R) Enterprise, Enabling Faster Root Cause
Analysis of Application Issues 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/26/13 --  Boundary and
Splunk Inc. have significantly enhanced the integration between their
software, making it easier for IT operations staff to resolve
application and network performance issues before end users are
impacted. The integrated solution, the Boundary App for Splunk
Enterprise is available now through Splunk's community website
Splunkbase and provided free of charge to customers of both
companies.  
Boundary's application performance management (APM) service discovers
and monitors application topology and flow data every second. Its
data now appears within Splunk Enterprise, which collects and indexes
machine data such as logs, events and performance metrics from all
tiers of the technology stack. Splunk users will be able to see
dependencies between applications and components and trace problems
through all monitored applications and virtual machines. This is
particularly important as applications become more distributed and
dynamic with increasing adoption of virtualization and cloud
services. 
Splunk real-time alerts are tagged as annotations in Boundary's
second-by-second time-series graphs so customers can quickly
correlate alerts against application flow and performance data. 
Using Boundary and Splunk together allows IT operations staff to
instantly identify which servers are critical to the performance and
operation of each application and fix hot spots before application
performance suffers and end-users are impacted. 
"Boundary's integration with Splunk is highly functional, and a great
way to expose and promote the integration of networking performance
and application topology with our mountains of machine data," said
Beau Christensen, manager, SaaS Operations & Reliability at Ping
Identity. "It furthers the vision of collaboration between the layers
of our monitoring stack. Interoperability is one of the keys to
successfully deploying a best of breed monitoring strategy." 
"The ability to have data from Boundary's APM service correlated with
machine data direct
ly in Splunk not only allows operations staff to
proactively identify and resolve problems across physical, virtual
and cloud environments, but also provides greater context to key
performance indicators and ultimately a better experience for end
users," said Bill Gaylord, Senior Vice President, Business
Development at Splunk. 
"IT operations staff want to take advantage of the enormous volume of
machine data generated by their applications and equipment," said
Gary Read, CEO at Boundary. "Through this integration, users get
critical context around Splunk's rich machine data analytics for
proactive monitoring across the entire infrastructure in a way that
is more efficient and useful than ever before."
