Liferay Connected Services
Fix Pack Management
Managing Enterprise software can be a challenging task. Our customers love having security updates and receiving bug fixes which are crucial for most projects. We have also seen how managing updates when having multiple servers and environments can be daunting. So we created a tool to easily manage and install fix packs across several servers and clusters.
Understanding platform performance and detecting performance issues can be difficult. We offer the metrics and the information that matters to our customers in a simple and clean format: page visits, application load times, memory metrics... start measuring your platform!
