Enlightened release

Java performance measurement tool Satoris goes live

Version 1.0, which promises to fifty times faster than competitor NewRelic, as well as a potential IoT asset, now available for download.

It’s a pretty bold move to claim that your new tool
can outperform one of the biggest players in the space, but
Jinspired have
done just that with the launch of Satoris 1.0, a new bit of
software designed for Java performance measurement. You can get a
free Community Edition download here.

Interestingly, Satoris has a simplified Open API, which is
geared towards bringing software analytics to any internet
connected device – offering tantalising solutions for Internet of
Things projects.

With the Open API open sourced under the Apache 2.0
license, Jinspired’s hope is that the Java community (as well as
other JVM language users) will help standardize the software for
instrumenting applications and libraries.

In the future, the company plans to port a similar
Open API to other languages and runtimes, in the hopes that they
can be integrated into “a hugely scalable near real-time software
simulation engine for the ultimate in distributed systems
monitoring including the “internet of things”.”

According to Jinspired, Satoris, which is designed
specifically for parallel and distributed infrastructures, as well
as cloud environments, is the company’s highest performance
measurement solution to date.

In fact, so confident are Jinspired of the superiority
of the new release, they’re claiming that Satoris is capable of
scaling a whole fifty times
than rival NewRelic.

Unit cost per
measured instrumented method call

In terms of scalability, Jinspired also reckon that
Satoris is more than leading the pack when pitted against other
major Java application performance monitoring (APM) solutions.

Citing benchmarking tests carried out by the company,
Jinspired states that most APM software has “inherent scalability
issues” when the number of threads and computing cores increase.
Satoris however offers “near linear scalability” even with
additional data collection and statistical analysis of the metering
measurements performed.

Jinspired certainly has big ambitions for this
release, stating, “We have long replicated data, it is now time for
behavior to be similarly pushed beyond its borders – simultaneous
replicated simulation.” So far there have only been the smallest of
ripples around Satoris, but, with IoT focused communities growing
all the time, there’s clearly the potential for this software to
catch fire as the tech develops.
