"Excellent APM to monitor performance"

What do you like best?

I used both the leading APM tools; I love the following features in AppDynamics which expedites the performance bottleneck detection: real-time monitoring both transactions and end-user monitoring, host health metrics, code-level detection, and intuitive performance reports.

AppDynamics supports all the major technology stacks (end to end) which is a great advantage and also, the alerts, health rules, email/SMS integration is simple to use and it requires less expertise to manage.

AppDynamics community has a huge user base and vibrant and the updates, fixes, and support from AppDynamics are excellent.

What do you dislike?

Pricing. To sign-up, it is must to have an email address. Only 14-days pro-trial for SaaS which can be increased to 60 days. 15 days trial for the AppDynamics Pro which also can be increased to 60 days. There is no lifetime personal license available in AppDynamics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other APM tools like New Relic, Stackify, Riverbed, etc are available if you are looking for a budget solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We execute various types of performance testing such load testing, stress testing, endurance testing and spike testing on daily basis in various environment. It was tough to detect and monitor the performance issues for each type of performance testing. But using AppDynamics, it is possible to create a trend in bottleneck detection. When the performance testing projects integrated with CI/CD pipeline, then AppDynamics plugin helps a lot e.g. if there is a performance degradation, it allows the job to be failed.

"The price of Omnipotence"

What do you like best?

The .NET and Java agents hide incredible amounts of additional monitoring capabilities not enabled by default. Given a fair level of autonomy a senior administrator would help any company realize an unparalleled level of visibility and reactivity.

The Server Visibility is just what an Ops team needs. Clean, effective, data-center-wide visibility on CPU, RAM, DISK, and NETWORK. All cleanly cut up into individual tabs.

Appdynamics is constantly improving,

You can work on a hybrid solution leaving the gathering of critical intel to occur within your own server hardware and the resource heavy EUM to occur on AppD hardware over a secure connection.

Having more visibility faster than even our data center hosts have it.

The entire 24x7 support staff knows their craft and are effective at resolution response.

The new logo looks great, this is important when you put your tool belt utility labels on your public site.

AppDynamics is highly configurable for "actions" which include alerts and actions.

What do you dislike?

There is no direct dial for support. I've been stuck playing email tag to get to a GTM going during a critical outage. Support is usually very responsive, but with all the alarms and whistles during mission critical outage I want clear connectivity to support, and a direct link to a GTM 5 minutes ago.

The database tools are a bit lacking in the 4.3 version and don't seem to have been improved that much leading into 4.4. You still get a really good level of "add-on" visibility to a tool such as Redgate. However, I wouldn't consider this a "one stop platform shop" until the database visibility improves greatly.

Large companies need to realize that the administration of AppDynamics is at least 1 full time job.

Some of the ability to configure when paired with a large environment can cause you the need to revert changes and re-configure to avoid confusion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not think that this application will solve your problems if you are not willing to invest the appropriate time and resources into it. Invest in training a local asset and have them work with the services group to properly implement. Appdynamics is well worth the money for the software if you have the money to support it internally as well. Almost all installations > 20 agents take a full time asset with Admin privileges in your environments.

Expect great things from this company in the near and distant future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have realized far greater visibility and mobility as an Operations team. We have been able to double our product footprint without increasing our staff and without overloading them either. Lastly, we were able to boost the "signal to noise" ratio on our alerting strategies and script out automated responses during out of office hours.

"For the reporting"

What do you like best?

It’s a tool that offers seamless traceability and a view that bridge both the APM and the Business product usage effectively.. Different people can interpret this definition differently so this article attempts to qualify what APM is, what it includes, and why it is important to your business. If you are going to take control of the performance of your applications, then it is important that you understand what you want to measure and how you want to interpret it in the context of your business.

What do you dislike?

The problem is that none of the server monitoring tools are capable of knowing how your applications are performing. Some of them can probe your application to see if it is available or not but none can tell you why your application has ceased to function.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its good to use and easy to adopt to your projects. I had lot many features. Application behavior and features such as monitoring asynchronous threads and End User Monitoring increase the number of metrics per minute flowing to the Controller and can affect the requirements. so try to keep this simple as possible so that it can improve your performance and reliability

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were using this for monitoring application health and also for thread counts

"Lots of features with simple deployment"

What do you like best?

Simple deployment with standard agents. It's very easy to develop new extensions with the machine agent. Requires some understanding of the application server to deploy.

Very intuitive metrics browser and dashboard creation is super simple.

You can view the full application and resources state during a snapshot.

User and developer support is good.

What do you dislike?

No very friendly debugging. The logs are very cryptic some times.

The metrics collector server requires a lot of resources.

The platform and collector installation "wizzard" is not so friendly

Recommendations to others considering the product

The trial last for 15 days which is more than enough to diagnose your application performance and possible errors or do some fine tuning.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Application mapping with connections to external systems (databases, web services, etc.).

In-depth application resource usage and performance.

Simple diagnostics of common misconfigurations

"Detailed transaction monitoring"

What do you like best?

In our environment, appdynamics is deployed in the jvm. There is minimal overhead. The GUI provides resource usage graphing and call chains with identified errors/exceptions.

What do you dislike?

I don’t think our company uses it to its fullest potential. It would take a lot of setup to get it fully running from what I can tell. Especially building all of your Business Transaction rules. Sometimes the scope of the automated monitoring frequency doesn't capture full traces of the exact transaction you are looking for but the collective results get you what you need. Again this may be something we have not utilized, but it would be interesting to get reports of all the exceptions over a week's time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Work with the AppDynamics team closely; they will help set it up, train your teams, and ensure you are off to a great start. Should anything arise during your deployment they will be there to help you along.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring heap usage, garbage collections and their timings, and handling exceptions. This is specifically used in our environment as an after-the-alarm tool, but it can be configured to perform the alarming itself.

"Brilliant Analysis "

What do you like best?

The amount of information you are able to pull from your network and have displayed in app dynamics is great. You can monitor all of your data without any worries that it may be lagging behind or you are missing information. This allows you to stay ahead on the game in terms of catching app issues.

What do you dislike?

For a small company, the price is probably a little too high, you are getting a brilliant program that can really save time but for some, it might not be a top priority to spend this much money.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want the security of being able to view all of your apps performance data in one place, in real time then this app is great. Keeping all your apps running is important and this will got a long way to making sure this happens.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can analyze a large amount of data quickly and it helps us spot upcoming issues before they have happened. This means we can be safe in the knowledge that our network is going to run without any problems which is extremely important to a business.

"Time Saver!"

What do you like best?

App Dynamics is a great time saver and very useful for reporting and monitoring in real time. It is very handy to be able to customise what data is actually being reported, so you can monitor exactly the bits you want, with ease. This can save a lot of time by removing any data or information that you have no desire to look at.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit overwhelming at times, the interface could do with a little more streamlining There are a lot of options available when using it, so that can slow it down a little.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The trial lasts for 15 days, so it's worth it to get a feel for everything without any commitment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring app usage and error reporting. App Dynamics can also help you drastically cut down the time spent looking for source of an issue, it can then help towards preventing a repeat of the same problem.

"All your apps in one place "

What do you like best?

The support provided by App Dynamics is second to none, when first setting it up i required some help and the support was great, They explained things in a simple and effective way.

The great thing about app dynamics is that it requires no experience of coding to use it, as this is the case for me i may have need at bit more help from the support team at the beginning but this was no problem for them.

What do you dislike?

The price of the product is a little bit high, i believe that it is well worth it but i think i could be a deciding factor for some businesses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for an APM tool give this a go, i doubt you will find it lacking in any department.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have placed all our all app reporting and data collecting in to one simple program, this has increased efficiency and saved time.

"A life saver "

What do you like best?

For me the best thing is the amount of control you have over the information that is displayed. You can really dial down the specific parameters you want to visibly monitor in real time. This can help you assess any situation quickly and effectively.

AppDynamics is a massive time saver, and reported issues with an app can be easily located and they can be solved so much quicker than previously. You can filter out parameters that you already know won't be an issue and get right to the cause.

What do you dislike?

The interface can be a little bit clunky at times and I think it could do with a bit of optimization. There are so many options available when using it it can slow it down a little.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This app can really help cut down the time it takes to find the cause of an issue. If you are finding yourself taking alot of time looking for the root of a reported problem and less time solving it then this will go a long way to making sure that doesn't happen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using app dynamics to easy monitor all the apps our company uses in one place. The fact you can customize the what data is being reported means you can easily monitor exactly what you want to. This can save a massive amount of time by cutting out any information you have no desire to look at.

"An incredible resource. "

What do you like best?

The support available for developers is brilliant and the fact that support is available 24 hours is really worth while. The interface looks great and makes it easy to access all the information you need just from glancing at the screen. It is so easy to have it open on one monitor and look periodically without having to dive deep in to the program to run just a few checks.

The reporting that App Dynamics provides has really cut down the amount of time we take troubleshooting an app issue. While monitoring it can help us spot an issue early when our systems are working hard and we can react to this before it causes any damage.

What do you dislike?

The price of it is quite high so you have to be sure that this suits your needs before investing. Although the price is to be expected for what you get.

Set up does take a while to complete but this is because the program is so in depth. A streamlining of this process would be beneficial to any business but this should not sacrifice the depth of the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For anyone looking to monitor multiply applications and produce real time reports then this does the job. It can help you react to arising issues before they have the chance to happen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring in real time on a cloud based platform means you are no longer limited to your office. You have freedom while maintaining control. It also helps us collate an overview of how all our applications are performing across the whole business.

"Real Time Snapshot: Right Here, Right Now!"

What do you like best?

This software is really easy to use and understand! AppD afforded us the opportunity to view the entire text of our queries, and the response times for the slower queries. This way we could easily locate which queries were causing a slower functional response to our applications.

What do you dislike?

. We’ve only used it during a trial session/period however once we have more usage, we can provide a more accurate response. For now, some colleagues have reported that it can be more complicated than necessary, but that has not been my experience so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try - you can't go wrong!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to accurately isolate which queries to optimize and ensure that the changes we made indeed addressed the issue in question, allowing us to concentrate on the application functions that are central to our business. We used it to explore real-time visibility of customer experience.

"Expensive but wow... the insight is worth it."

What do you like best?

Ease of integration using Javaagent. $$$

What do you dislike?

$$$ way too expensive for 90% of Corps..

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pricing is incredibly wrong. Only large corps can afford it. And many and up using Nw Relc which is a shame as this product is far superior and provides PRODUCTION APM and Monitoring.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product will dispel the myth that Engineers “know” i.e. Guess where performance problems are. It can show granular transaction costs down to SQL query plans. It integrates easily with JEE, JDBC drivers and JMS APIs using its own Aspect-oriented byte code rewriting. ALL while in production. Yes, this product is ran on production machines. One can trace actual business logic bottle necks on the real system without a significant performance* hit. The performance gains from fixing the bottlenecks far out weights the 2% degradation of using this product. One can obtain exponential gains once it’s clear where the real performance issues are and not guesses.

"AppDynamics is awesome"

What do you like best?

As a support engineer, AppDynamics is one of my daily tools that I cannot leave it. Especially for analyze production issues. For example, some sql query running very slow but I dont' know which one exactly. With the help of AppDynamics, I can filter out the long time request from end user, then analyze these bad performance requests to find out the sql performance issue.

What do you dislike?

It's a bit slow when you're navigating on the page. AppDynamics should improve its performance. There are lots of functions on AppDynamics, you need a formal training or someone is very experienced to guide you. If you're the first time to use it, you probably lost on the page because there're too many UIs on the page.

Recommendations to others considering the product

AppDynamics is a very powerful tools to monitor your distribute system. It's easy to use and has a very simplicity UI. You can find the functions what you need quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes, out customer said they encountered a very bad performance issue on our product. With the help of AppDynamics, we can quickly find out which request was slow. AppDynamics save our much time to looking for issue cause.

Besides, its alert function is very useful. There probably have hundreds or thousands servers running in your house, AppDynamics will alert you if one node is down.

Lastly, it's verify convenient to restart a batch of servers from AppDynamics. Yep, it saved you much time.

"Application performance monitoring for web applications"

What do you like best?

The full blown APM suite has the complete integration and collection of dashboards,reporting,databases and many more features which helps to get started and its ideal for small to medium business scale requirements and also robust and the end user experience includes web and mobile monitoring and gives regular checks and provides reliable updates all the time and its cloud based-unified monitoring goes a long way in determining the performance measure of each UX and individual transactions

What do you dislike?

It does not provide better support java end php nodes and mysql databases servers with the interactive flow of line of http calls from one server to another and sometimes the API calls and integration is a big hassles and takes a lot of comprehensive focus for any manual configuration issues

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best of the bunch for harnessing all the reporting data and customized back analysis reports all the time

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Best for APM,content cloud monitoring ,large scale business like ours and giving regular alerts,business health and critical analysis for all our products and the status updates are really worth it ,UI complexity is trimmed down and ideal for docker monitoring,pings and service monitoring

"Great all-around monitoring product"

What do you like best?

Integration with multiple frameworks (Java, NodeJS, .NET, etc). Good database monitoring tool as well as end-user and synthetic user monitoring tool. Works great for on-premise and is always maturing and keeping up with industry trends. It's been in Garter's Leader Quad for years now.

What do you dislike?

SaaS is developed prior, then on-premise. We have reasons to need all of it on premise. They stay in step pretty well, and will fulfill promises to deliver.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We didn't know where the slow-downs were happening. The up/down way of monitoring wasn't enough for us, so the slowness, machine learning and baselining was really nice.

Seeing user experience was also very helpful.

"Our helper from the last two years!!"

What do you like best?

The trouble shooting in production environment is a breeze with Appdynamics!! We have brought lot of stability to the production environment only with Appdynamics' help and its reporting. We have our annual client events where the system comes under load. Appdynamics provides a perfect insight into the load the system is in during those events helping us to be very proactive.

What do you dislike?

Appdynamics exceeds expectations in what it promises. It does not promise a code debug kind of feature. But if it ever did, that would be an icing on the cake.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned above, its been an extreme help on production troubleshooting. The errors it has been able to provide insight into has helped us bring a lot of stability to our product. It continues to do so release after release.

"Am impressive product that gives the ability to monitor, analyze, and understand your IT operations"

What do you like best?

-The responsiveness of the user interface and clean, readily understandable design

-The excellent diagnostics and trouble-shooting utilities

-The ability to see services on the lowest possible level as well as the highest level, interacting with the rest of the estate.

-The light-weight nature of the front-end

-The ease of user administration and controlling access

-The excellent customer support from the vendor

-Very light server load, less than 1% additional CPU load on every monitored host.

What do you dislike?

-Setup can take a very long time and quite some teething problems to overcome

-Ability to add new applications/services to be monitored isn't entirely straightforward in many cases, but that's understandable

-The cost of the product can get to be very significant very soon if you have a large and varied enterprise-level IT estate to cover and a large number of users

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider your IT estate carefully and try to limit the potential AppDynamics userbase to those who really need to use it as otherwise costs can swiftly spiral out of control.

Definitely try the trial with them, they are extremely responsive and accommodating with potential customers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

AppDynamics allow us to monitor the interaction between component services and applications in a solution stack, between discrete solutions interacting via the middleware with each other and MI reporting solutions, and all the external customer interactions hitting gateways and application servers on a unprecedented breadth and depth. The utility is immensely helpful for monitoring performance, finding problem spots, and diagnosing errors and significant performance hits.

"Strong and simple software!"

What do you like best?

Very intuitive. As vague as this sounds, it just seems to work. Whether it be developing custom dashboards or creating fresh extensions. I personally enjoy how easy how easy and simple it is to monitor resources state at a glance. It works with our current set up.

What do you dislike?

The one problem i have with this software is simply, how logs are processed and displayed. I've had to create multiple briefs for my department, just because the majority of employees aren't grasping it. Its taken up more time than i'm happy with. But apart from that, happy user.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Straight off the bat, we use AppDynamics for company-wide monitoring of all apps. Essentially we realised how outdated our previous systems were. Everything was fragmented and a chore to use, but with AD, its all together, working in tandem. After the initial period of getting our staff into the swing of things, it has begun to save us a massive amount of effort.

"Very useful tool"

What do you like best?

I like that my team can quickly identify which node member in our cluster is struggling and identify what the transaction is that is running poorly, and immediately have some actions to take, or talk with the appropriate group who can address the issue.

What do you dislike?

It is pretty expensive per JVM, so we really have to make a decision as to which servers to monitor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool, very useful features that normal "monitoring" software does not have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our main problem is to troubleshoot poorly running JVMs, which can be very difficult to troubleshoot what is going on. AppDynamics has helped us quickly identify slow running queries and denial of service attacks.

"Really reliable"

What do you like best?

I've found AppDynamics really makes life easy. As the reporting is in real-time and you can filter out certain data, it really makes cracking down on any trends and issues and resolving them effortlessly and in a nice timely fashion. The high levels of customisation and UI are very user-friendly too.

Very rare to have any major problems with this tool.

Customer support from the company is also fantastic, nothing is ever too much trouble.

What do you dislike?

It might be a bit on the more costly side for smaller businesses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the trial a go, you'll be sold!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overall, this has had much better feedback from colleagues than the previous APM used. There have been pretty much no issues with it, the occasional *tiny* bit of lag, but overall, if you're considering AppDynamics, try the free trial and you'll no doubt be sold!

"A indispensable application monitoring tool for any enterprise"

What do you like best?

Dashboards are easy to create and folks are able to point out potential problems easily.

Not much of an overhead , but its been able to provide reasonable amount of insights in to how the environment is behaving.

What do you dislike?

Its not able to trace all outgoing calls accurately, its work in progress. But given where we were appdynamics is a lifesaver.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ensure optimal settings while installing to ensure that it doesnt add too much of overhead.

Its advisable to restrict access, else many people will have opinions on what is going wrong and how to fix it.

Especially keep it away from management, other wise your dev team is going to spend lot of time explaining why things work in a particular way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great for Reporting"

What do you like best?

This software has good integration with a number of different frameworks, this includes JAVA. The dashboard is aesthetically good has lots of capabilities, can't forget the ability to view problems in real time - that's a great advantage.

What do you dislike?

For example, if your application fails to function as usual the software can not detect why, it can only see how they are performing and check if it is available or not.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It helps quickly identify problems so that the impact can be minimized before it reaches the customer.

"Exceptional Capability"

What do you like best?

I love the dashboard, business transactions and overall ease of use of the tool. It integrates well and has some very clever capabilities. The standard interface works well. We have tried EUM and are yet to get this fully implemented but it looks impressive.

What do you dislike?

It lacks some instrumentation capabilities for MS BizTalk.

Installation can be challenging at time, but once it's understood how it works and gets implemented, then it becomes easy, especially on Java applications.

However on .NET applications, this requires more work and a low level technical understanding of how to work with XML structures.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do a POC, use the software on a complex application in UAT that has sufficient data flowing through it.

"Great Insights, Great Troubleshooting"

What do you like best?

Being able to have insight into problems on a website, in real time, is extremely useful.

What do you dislike?

It's so expansive in functionality that it's very easy to get lost. Sometimes I run a graph or chart that really helps me out, then I can't find it again. It's not always intuitive where to find things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a free demo and then use it to troubleshoot an actual problem you're having. You'll be hooked. It is quite expensive, though, so you'll need buy-in from the decision (budget) makers.

"Master of Application Data Analysis"

What do you like best?

Best thing about this tool is that u don't need multiple tools for your needs. There are nearly all solutions available under single roof named AppDynamics. Good thing is its online website interface you can see things on the go. Usually you deploy something locally in-house and you going abroad you don't have a clear picture. No such problem exists in it.

What do you dislike?

For me not as such but its UI needs a lot improvements. You will not feel any issue if you got training for your people. But one day when a newbie will learning will be complaining about its Interface flow. I know things will be much better with time. Same improvement is required in Dashboard. Customization if fine. But there is a lot margin of improvement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It depends on your needs. Please invest some time in research of other tools also. And after that i bet you will not find a single tool capable like AppDynamics.

AppDynamics works rwally great for monitoring the performance of different applications and definitely something I would recommend to anyone interested to adapt for their business.

"Quickly and effeciently identify performance issues"

What do you like best?

Deep insights into application. The dashboards are easy to navigate. We've used this product to submit bug reports to our vendor of a closed-source java application. AppDynamics exposes the class and methods with timings and exceptions for each API call.

I can't think of anything. Maybe the "requires flash" is a problem, but I suspect they are working to get rid of flash.

I like that I can easily dig into an issue visually. We can find out down to the little detail what is causing a problem and deploy a fix.

"Very powerful tool that allows us to focus on development"

What do you dislike?

AppDynamics come with a hefty price tag. It is dissuading for our smaller client environments because it makes our SaaS offering too expensive when we roll in these costs into our business model.

AppDynamics allows our development team to focus more on developing and less on deep dive troubleshooting. This in turn saves the company money by making our developers more productive.

The end to end nature of how appdynamics captures an application experience makes it easy to follow what happened in a transaction failure, where it happened and why so that issues can be resolved in a timely manner without a lot of extra overhead in doing manual analysis to track down root causes.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve to leveraging the tool but that can be overcome with training.

What do you like best?

AppDynamics is a great tool for business monitoring transactions and end to end application monitoring at each level across enterprise. The best thing I like is the Dashboard and performance metrics dashboard. Also like the reporting features a lot.

"Best analytics platform"

What do you like best?

I have used analytics for my app and I found it really useful. But currently with ionic 2 I get it absolutely free, I have to see what more competitive features are provided

What do you dislike?

The cost model is mostly suitable for enterprise and not indie developers. I would like to see if there is any change considering that the most used feature for me is now available for free at ionic itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for the enterprise model.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm writing an independent app that is yet to see the market. It falls on the line of instagram. Considering that I've used analytics only so far it is hard to say my benefits at this moment.
