Mutek Solutions AppSight 3.5 records application actions and stores information when AppSight senses a problem, such as a system crash. IT managers will likely be able to use the system to quickly diagnose and sometimes prevent problems but at a hefty cost (especially in maintaining the product).

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // AppSight requires substantial setup and training investment to ensure that the product doesnt unnecessarily impede server performance and to learn how to sort out relevant clues to system problems.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Intimate knowledge of application and operating system behavior should provide IT managers with the ability to keep systems running with fewer interruptions.

Provides detailed, blow-by-blow application and operating system tracking; sophisticated triggers ensure that relevant data is collected.

Captures many "false positives"; requires extensive training to use collected data to find problems; little integration with help desk or management tools.
