Quest Software Releases New Version of Foglight for Application Performance Monitoring

August 2, 2010 By News Staff

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. - Quest Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: QSFT) today announced the addition of several enhancements to Foglight®, its industry-leading application performance monitoring product. Enriched features in the latest version of Foglight simplify application support and IT operations roles and drastically shorten time-to-value across mixed physical and virtual systems, multiple datacenters, third-party tools and complex deployments.


"Literally within an hour, Foglight made the process of collecting and categorizing our data much easier," reported Brian Garavuso, executive vice president of national marketing and chief information officer, Diamond Resorts International®. "Most similar tools require an extensive learning process where you have to dedicate a top-notch staff member to figure it out and get it all up and running, but Foglight worked seamlessly right out of the box."


In this new edition of Foglight, the expanded User Experience Management capabilities provide businesses with the ability to manage online revenue and conversion rates in real time, analyze trends in customer buying patterns and understand how application usability, performance, functionality and content affect conversion rates.


"This recent update to Foglight is our latest step toward unifying IT and the business," said Carl Eberling, vice president and general manager, virtualization and monitoring business unit, Quest Software. "The solution helps IT effectively manage the performance delivered to users, while at the same time helping the business learn user interests, buying patterns and preferences."

New Foglight features include the following:


  • Enhanced management visibility: Get the job done quickly with dashboards for every stakeholder - including executives, line-of-business, IT operations and support - coupled with role-based workflow support and drag-and-drop features.
  • Service-based alert subscription:  Streamline your day by only subscribing to critical services that impact your business and your responsibilities.  Become instantly aware of any condition within the monitored enterprise that impacts that service.
  • Simplified installation, deployment and maintenance: Shorten time-to-value with a wizard-based, common user interface that helps users and administrators configure and install Foglight within hours.
  • Greater user productivity: Easily transition Foglight metrics into information that all business stakeholders can understand with wizard-driven scheduling and reporting.
  • Integrate with your existing monitoring tools for faster time-to-value: Implement Foglight as an application-centric monitoring console to complement an existing framework or as a single enterprise console. Foglight can seamlessly integrate inbound alerts and host data from other monitors, or export them to other management consoles that organizations might be using.
