“We used the BMC monitoring solutions to see the volume of transactions per second we could sustain. The monitors showed us the breaking points and provided the data we needed to accurately calculate how much processing power we would need to handle peak loads at acceptable performance levels.”

— Terry Glover, Director of Technical Architecture and Support, Dillard’s
