Instrumentation is essential for quality assurance during application development as well as for production system monitoring. Especially for enterprise applications, a detailed analysis of internal processes is essential. Depending on the requested kind of monitoring information, instrumentation can be achieved by inserting general purpose logging statements (e.g. complying to the Log4J specification) or the use of more specialised performance measurement APIs, e.g. Open Group Application Response Measurement.
