Compuware Delivers IPv6 Support For Application Performance Management
Compuware Corporation, the technology performance company, has announced that – in recognition of World IPv6 launch – the Compuware APM platform now supports IPv6 across its product brands — Gomez and dynaTrace. This support will help organisations 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 counterparts.
The Compuware APM platform addresses these complexities with support for IPv6 with Compuware Gomez and Compuware dynaTrace.
Compuware Gomez, with the help of Compuware Gomez Synthetic Monitoring, enables organisations to proactively test and monitor web applications on both IPv4 and IPv6 using the Gomez Global Performance Network from multiple global geographic locations

Gomez Global Performance Network, helps make performance comparisons with the same geographical profile.

The dynaTrace User Experience Management (UEM) automatically provides insight into end users accessing web applications from IPv6-based networks.
The dynaTrace Data Center Real-User Monitoring (DC RUM) also allows users to identify application performance problems regardless of the underlying network technology. Additionally, the dynaTrace Synthetic Monitoring setup for IPv6 is now identical to IPv4 network setup.
“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, 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 services.”
