A clear picture of system health
When JPX had to migrate approximately 30 internal and external information systems to the cloud, TSE’s hybrid cloud environment quickly became far more complex. Web monitoring and failure visualization grew more complicated, and existing manual log monitoring made it difficult to manage every system.
While TSE had already been relying on Splunk to manage its trading and core systems for years, Splunk Synthetic Monitoring unlocked new opportunities, enhancing frontend monitoring and automating operations to help TSE stay resilient in the cloud era. Akimitsu Okada — who helps lead TSE’s IT development department — monitors compute details like CPU and memory usage while also tracking system performance for frontend users.
“As a SaaS-based solution, Splunk Synthetic Monitoring allowed us to start small and move fast with zero change to our current systems,” says Okada. “By monitoring web services, application operation status, browser performance and user response time, Splunk lets us manage all systems in our cloud environment efficiently and cost-effectively.”
With a complete picture of all information systems, TSE can now proactively detect failure points and quickly resolve uptime and performance issues. The Splunk platform also replaces manual log searches and analyses with an automated framework. This enables Okada and his team to monitor the detailed performance of every system in real time on a single pane of glass, helping TSE provide a smooth user experience.
