What's New in APM Server

Analysis Server is the central APM component that stores and processes performance data generated by web pages and Agent systems you want to monitor. The Analysis Server also provides the web interface for users to analyze data it collects. It is included as part of the APM virtual appliance or installed on a dedicated Linux system.
