AppDynamics Pricing


AppDynamics Overview:

AppDynamics offers application performance management at its most precise, allowing development and ops to hone in to the root cause of any bottlenecks in their apps and to fix it immediately. This cutting-edge software has three stages to its functionality – Monitor, Troubleshoot, and Automate.

AppDynamics will alert you of any issues, show you how that issue affects your customer and your business, and allow you to drill down to the application server and the database to view the code execution. Once you’ve pinpointed exactly where and what the root cause is, you can fix it automatically.

AppDynamics functions in real-time, alerting you of any issue or delay as it occurs. This is critical to minimizing any user or business interruption, and ensuring that the performance of your application is optimized.

Nice article about licensing. I was looking for it for a while now. Could you please also tell me whether licenses are based on number of users or number of servers?

Licenses are based on number of servers -- JVMs, IIS instances, Apache Web Servers, etc.
