Application Visibility Definition

Application visibility is the ability to gain insights into application performance, health, security and other such aspects of an application.  These insights enable application developers and owners in continuously optimizing app performance to match its usage patterns.

How does VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer provide Application Visibility?

VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer leverages its strategic placement as a load balancer in the application traffic path.  The Service Engines are the distributed load balancers that can be deployed closest to the applications to enable optimal performance.  These Service Engines collect real-time telemetry on the application performance, usage, health, and security posture.  These metrics are then sent to the centralized Controller which analyzes and processes them to provide visual dashboards to application owners.
