application topology mapping
A subset of network topology and network mapping software, application topology mapping software tools are designed to map or diagram the layout of mission-critical applications in an enterprise, how different apps are connected to each other, how they can be accessed by various computers and networks, and how they are currently performing in terms of efficiency and availability. The applications mapped by these tools can range from non-connected applications to Web-enabled applications, streaming apps and even cloud applications.
Application topology mapping tools also typically include application discovery and dependency mapping capabilities as well as application performance management (APM) features for alerting IT staff to disruptions in availability and/or quality to end users. Many application topology mapping software tools also combine sophisticated network mapping to provide real-time views and performance monitoring of all network devices, services, applications, connections and traffic patterns on one or more networks.
