Compuware APM Platform's Support for IPv6 Addresses
Complexity at the Edge of the Internet, Optimizing
Application Performance of IPv4 and IPv6 Networks
DETROIT, June 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that
-- in recognition of World IPv6 launch -- the Compuware APM(R) platform
now supports IPv6 across its product brands -- Gomez and dynaTrace.
This support will help organizations ensure the quality and performance
of their web, mobile and cloud applications as they transition to IPv6,
providing unparalleled insight into application performance regardless
of the network used--IPv4 or IPv6.
The Internet is going through a major architectural change as its core
network layer protocol, Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), is being
replaced by IPv6 due to the rapid growth of the Internet and exhaustion
of IPv4 addresses. This change adds complexity at the edge of the
Internet to the way browsers and devices connect and how services
operate and are accessed.
This puts end-user experience, revenue and brand reputation at risk and
also impacts the way application performance is tested and monitored.
Compuware's analysis comparing performance of IPv4 and IPv6 URLs showed
that on average IPv6 sites were 80 percent slower than their IPv4
The Compuware APM platform addresses these complexities with the
following support for IPv6:
-- Compuware Gomez Synthetic Monitoring now available for testing over both
IPv4 and IPv6: this industry-first enables organizations to proactively
test and monitor web applications on both IPv4 and IPv6 using the Gomez
Global Performance Network from multiple global geographic locations
across North America, Europe and Asia. Now organizations can find and
fix IPv6 problems fast, ensuring quality end-user experience.
-- Gomez Global Performance Network testing locations with IPv6 support now
available at locations currently running IPv4 tests: now performance
comparisons can be made with the same geographical profile. All Gomez
charting options are available for IPv6 tests along with trend reports,
waterfalls, step- or network-level breakdowns for analyzing IPv6
performance and to quickly troubleshoot and resolve problems.
-- dynaTrace User Experience Management (UEM) automatically provides
insight into end users accessing web applications from IPv6-based
networks: dynaTrace UEM now supports monitoring of users coming from
IPv6 networks as well as web and application servers running on IPv6
networks. Setup, configuration and usage of IPv6 data within UEM all
work the same way as IPv4, simplifying the use of the IPv6
-- dynaTrace Data Center Real-User Monitoring (DC RUM) now allows users to
identify application performance problems regardless of the underlying
network technology: DC RUM enables users to monitor applications,
transactions and customer location-based end-user performance on IPv6
networks just as easily as on existing IPv4 networks.
-- dynaTrace Synthetic Monitoring setup for IPv6 is now identical to IPv4
network setup: any configuration element that uses an IP address use
IPv6 addresses. Reports that list Server IP addresses will now
automatically show the IPv6 address when encountered.
"IPv6 is important to our customers, and we understand the complexity
it adds at the edge of the Internet that can cause poor application
performance, putting end-user experience at risk," said John Van
Siclen, General Manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "With
Compuware APM's support for IPv6, we can ensure that our customers have
a smooth and successful transition to IPv6, with uninterrupted
