What is Application Availability?

March 2, 2022


Application availability is measured to evaluate whether an application is functioning properly, whether it’s usable to meet the requirements of a business.

Application availability is determined based on application-specific key performance indicators such as overall application uptime and downtime. But many other other factors can be measured depending on your application such as number of completed transactions and responsiveness.
