Release: VMware AppSpeed 1.5

VMware has released AppSpeed version 1.5. The product was acquired from B-Hive in May 2008, and soon became part of the VMware product suite.

AppSpeed is a performance analyzer tool that sniffs the network traffic and learns how the applications inside virtual machines usually perform, so it can help to understand the reason of performance issues.


New features:

  • AppSpeed integration in the vSphere Client Interface
  • AppSpeed User Interface can now be accessed from a Web browser
  • Redesigned User Interface
  • Side-by-side comparison of vCenter Key Performance Indicators
    • Identify if performance issues are related to services or underlying VM resources
    • Generation of general health indicators (SLAs) for services and servers based on response times which are monitored
