Infrastructure Planning Process

It is NOT About Tools, It is About Process


  • Monitor an Application for Quality
  • Insight into Application Performance before Deployment
  • Diagnosis for Application Quality Problems
  • Bandwidth Capacity Planning


Infrastructure Planning is a process for improving the performance of applications over a WAN.

IPP gives the network engineer a view into how the application acts on the network. Generally, this means, "what are the bandwidth requirements".

IPP gives the application designers a view into how the application performs on the network. This usually means "what is the response time" of the application.

IPP is a process that can reveal the characteristics of applications when they reside on the network. The key here is process.


Application Expert

Application Expert v2.6 and Application Expert v8.0 are the products of Compuware Corporation. The Infrastructure Planning Process requires the use of Application Expert tool. As mission-critical business applications and the network infrastructures transporting them evolve, so too must analysis tools to help eliminate networked application slowness or unresponsiveness. Application Expert helps identify and resolve application performance issues quickly before an application goes live. It demonstrates how changes in network bandwidth, latency, load, and TCP window size affect each end user's response time.

With Application Expert, IT professionals Can:†††††††

  • Help ensure production readiness
  • Verify bandwidth requirements
  • Discover application bottlenecks
  • Tune applications for wide area networks
  • Understand and communicate test results
  • Support a wide variety of applications and data sources
  • Performance management for .NET applications


Response Time:

The Response Time Analysis summarizes where time is being spent during the transaction. This allows the user to focus on those areas that

Time Plot:

The Time Plot allows the user to see how efficiently and effectively the transaction is using bandwidth.


Thread Analysis:

Thread Analysis allows the user to visualize the behavior of the components of the transaction. This quickly identifies where performance improvements can be made.



The Response Time Prediction allows the user to quickly see how the transaction will behave once deployed across a distributed network. This allows them to determine realistic and attainable SLAs.



The response Time Sweep allows the user to understand how the network will affect response time, so they donít waste money on unnecessary bandwidth.


WAN Provisioning Module (WPM):

With the WPM, you can immediately determine if our new application will run on an existing WAN link, or if you need more, and how much.†††††††


Payload View:

Application Expert can provide visualizations ofXML files being used. Application vantage provides visualization of your web pages.††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††


Define User Profiles:

With the WPM, you need only know who will be using your application, and how they will be using it.
