Application Spotlight

Get a 360° view of all your applications in real time—in the context of the entire cluster—in one place.


Get a 360° View of Your Applications

Pepperdata Application Spotlight provides you with a 360° view of all your data in one place, so you can gauge performance in the context of the entire cluster. This allows you to quickly diagnose application performance issues up to 90% faster, and improve overall efficiency. Pepperdata also delivers job-specific recommendations, and allows you to set up alerts on specific behaviors and outcomes to avoid the risk of failure.
