Business Process Monitoring for mobile - best practices for you

In rapidly changing and complex IT environments, monitoring of mobile application performance can be quite challenging task. HP Business Process Monitor (BPM) provides a quick and easy solution to deliver the visibility on your mobile application performance. Mobile application performance can be measured by HP BPM from multiple internal or external locations. Monitoring locations can be extended by the HP SaaS hosted global Points-of-Presence (PoP). These PoP's include mobile transaction monitoring Over-the-Air (OTA), which then will capture the impact of mobile carrier network (latency per carrier) to the end user response times. All BPM measured monitoring data can be reported in various perspectives, clearly indicating per application, user, location or SLA performance.   


HP BPM is an application performance management solution which runs monitoring scripts recorded by a Virtual User Generator (VuGen). The document in this blog provides best practices for using VuGen to record mobile native applications for BPM. The document provides general best practices, as well as explanations how to utilize a number of emulators in script creation. The document also provides a brief description of how to record scripts using the MobileTrue client protocol. Both of these recording technologies are supported by HP LoadRunner and HP Performance Center, so customers can seamlessly integrate the mobile application testing and monitoring solutions and reuse scripts from application performance test phase in production monitoring.


A typical mobile app (HTTP/HTML) uses protocols which enable you to develop scripts using mobile devices

or device emulators that communicate with servers over HTTP. It is easy to record network traffic to a

capture file (PCAP file) and create a VuGen script, or alternatively mobile emulator on your VuGen

machine can be used to develop monitoring scripts. Many mobile device emulators are available on the internet sites. Correct emulator version needs to be installed (supported by your application) and secure match to system requirements for each emulator software used. There is more information in the attached documenton on the best practices for mobile script creation.
