Automated Application Grouping


The left hand panel in the application view groups the applications in various different manners:

  • Commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS) applications such as Sharepoint, Citrix, VMware, Symantec, and many others to identify well-known apps from patterns and processes which have been captured in our application library.

  • Non COTS software is identified by the types of processes and patterns of communication indicating that the processes are working together as a single application or application component. These applications are labeled ‘App 0’, ‘App 1’, ‘App 2’, etc. in the left hand panel  

  • The remaining applications are identified by which processes appear to be working together to form an application or application component. These applications are labeled ‘Apps on machine_name’. Our software searches for well known patterns in components like web servers and databases and then analyzes the processes which interact with them to determine if they can likely be considered a part of a larger application.
