When services begin to slow down, is the root cause the service provider, the application, or have you increased your usage and need to look at your deployment? Often, by the time you get to investigate performance issues, they’ve gone away and you can’t replicate them. This can be frustrating, even worse, it could be massively damaging to your business if that slowdown happens again at exactly the wrong time.
