Data-intensive infrastructures are increasingly used for on-line processing of live data to guide operations and decision making. VScope is a flexible monitoring and analysis middleware for trouble-shooting such large-scale, time-sensitive, multi-tier applications. With VScope, lightweight anomaly detection and interaction tracking methods can be run continuously throughout an application's execution. The runtime events generated by these methods can then initiate more detailed and heavier weight analyses which are dynamically deployed in the places where they may be most likely fruitful for root cause diagnosis and mitigation.
