Best Container Monitoring Tools & Docker Monitoring Solutions
To help you find the best container monitoring solutions & docker monitoring tools, IT Central Station ranked them based on hundreds of real user reviews, from our esteemed community of enterprise technology professionals. You'll find comparisons of pricing, performance, features, stability and many other criteria. Read below to find out what your peers have to say about vendors such as Dynatrace, AppDynamics, CA Technologies, BMC and others.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.
It is different for me than other users. I like the PurePaths dashlet the most. This is mostly because (and I can count a handful at times where this has not been this scenario) as soon I open the PurePaths dashlet and sort by response time, there is the problem. Every time. If the PurePaths dashlet pulls up 750,000 PurePaths, I really only needed to know about... more»
I would love to see a better data export, because AppMon's charting capabilities leaves a lot to be desired. The dashboarding capabilities leaves a lot to be desired. There are a lot of times, for example, at my last company, they wanted Dynatrace data in addition to a bunch of other stuff dumped into one place. It was not just performance metrics. The CEO... more»
Dashboards is one, troubleshooting is another. I come from the monitoring perspective, so the ability to triage quickly is important, and the ability to alert and tell people where the problem is, that's what I really like about the product.
Right now in an AppMon, when you have DevOps teams looking to see where transactions are going through from business transactions, and they want to set up measurements to see how things are. And dashboards - dashboards are extremely important... more»
I haven't had a chance to go through all of it, but I would like to see the ability, from an administrative standpoint, for it to collect statistics. I want to be able to see the servers that the agents are installed on. I want it to be able... more»
* End-to-end visibility of the applications, since we have them instrumented. Understanding where the hotspots are in the applications. * Quick Fault Domain Isolations: When people are having a problem, understanding where to look, and... more»
Mean time to resolution is probably the biggest improvement. Also, operational awareness is probably one I haven't touched on too much. I think in the past a lot of teams really didn't have a comfortable feel for how well, or not well, their... more»
Over the last year, one of the things we've had a challenge with is, we've used AppMon for so long, people are quite comfortable with it. We had a pilot of Dynatrace SaaS up and running for about a year, trying to transition application teams... more»
It increases productivity first of all, and it makes our troubleshooting efforts more efficient. We don’t do the war-room thing, I hate the war-room thing. A lot of the time, when there’s an issue, before they can even assemble the war room,... more»
Can it talk to me? But seriously, the additional feature I would like to see: I did like the old dashboards, the legacy 6.3 for example; the way we were able to do the dashboarding in the client. I would like to be able to see that in the new... more»
The most valuable feature of the solution is the visibility. It creates visibility - from when the user starts interacting with our application - all the way back to our database calls, our network path, everything. The triaging is amazing.... more»
Once we started adopting this tool, it become an integral part of our business goals. As an industrial manufacturing company, the big investment and the interest area for us is to have our presence in the e-commerce platform, with stable and... more»
From the Dynatrace SaaS platform, they talk about the APIs. The approach they take is, "We create the APIs, you use them however you want." I like it, that gives us flexibility. But at the same time, if your company does not have a huge... more»
Being able to identify the blind spots. Before, we had lots of monitoring, but it was all very manual. It was literally taking server logs and dumping them somewhere and someone had to manually go through things. You only monitor what you... more»
We have had a few instances where we found small problems. They may or may not have been a full site-outage, but they certainly would have had some kind of customer impact. We only put the tool in a year ago but we've already got quite a... more»
I think the one that's coming soon, the customer playback and the session replay. Notwithstanding the challenge we might have around GDPR, and the collection of data - which worries me - what we have quite a lot is, a very specific customer... more»
The most valuable things that we have seen are the user experience and capturing what the users are doing inside the browser, and being able to equate that back to the business and telling them how much of their company is doing what. Also,... more»
Before we had the tool we had no visibility into the user experience and capturing what was going on inside the browser. We utilized tags so we knew how many times people were doing certain things, but we did not know how the performance was,... more»
Stability and scalability have been issues right now. My understanding going forward, and I am cautiously optimistic, is that we will not have these problems anymore. I would really like for that to be the case. We are a large company. We do... more»
The transaction snapshots are probably by far the most used feature because it gives a lot of details. It adds a lot of value. You can really get to the details really, really quick. You can drill down very, very quick. When you show it to... more»
As I’ve mentioned elsewhere about correlation, it's really helpful because I don't have to spend time with multiple teams. A lot of times, what might have happened in the past was where, if there was a problem, we would call like six, seven,... more»
I can think of 2-3 complex problems that probably would be helpful to most customers. Heap analysis is one; memory leaks. That's already there, so maybe that does not count at this point. The second one I would probably call out is connection... more»
* The threshold alerting is what makes the difference. * The PurePath stuff for deep dive analysis on problems. That is massive as far as having a benefit. The dashboard is eye candy, because it's just a screen. It looks nice but the... more»
We have substantially lowered incidents in our organization. It is hard to really measure it exactly from a percentage of how many have been lowered. As a general statement, there is no question that the number of incidents and the duration... more»
I do not know everything that is in the hopper. What I am about to say could already be in the hopper. I am learning more about so called 7.1, be it SaaS or AppMon. Setting up the thresholds and alerting, it is complicated to understand their... more»
Problem detection. Obviously, during the building of a system that is new and it's in development, there are a lot of bugs. Being in the cloud it is very difficult, sometimes, to diagnose where the issues are. Dynatrace gives us that deep... more»
The benefit we've seen so far is the ease of configuration, ease of set-up, just drop an agent in the machine and off it goes. That's been good. Also, having a single point of availability of all your performance data has been a big benefit.... more»
The one feature that I was really pleased to see coming is that configuration management - that's scripted configuration management - which really fits into that whole DevOps idea of being able to do that. I'd like to see the UI a bit more... more»
It gives a complete, end-to-end visualization of an environment. That's where it is a little easier to analyze any issue in production compared to the other APM tools. That's the key difference between the other tools and AppDynamics.
The first thing is that they are going in the right direction. That's the great thing because they're linking IT with business. That's why we mostly like it because the other APM tools are just talking about your IT. They're not linking that... more»
For me, the most valuable feature of this solution is that deep dive that we get out of the AppMon product with the PurePath technology, and the way that the PurePath stack works. It's visibility that we didn't have into our applications... more»
I think it has improved the way our company has functions because of the insight that we have now into our applications. On top of bringing in the AppMon product to our organization, we've also really been trying to push APM as a culture,... more»
I've learned a lot during this Perform 2018 conference about the direction and the roadmap that Dynatrace is going with the actual Dynatrace product. One thing that I would like to see is for companies like us - large AppMon customers that... more»
Features that are valuable to us are the business transaction transparency from one tier to the next and the ability to be able to drill down into the called stack. The ability to identify the stalled and error transactions in real time. And... more»
AppDynamics lets you find things that you wouldn't otherwise be able to see. Without APM, you'd be spending a lot more time to try and investigate into all the individual event logs. Our services are massive. It's not a simple application... more»
One of the things that I've noticed is when you have a massive scale, turning on too much of data logging is not possible. So sometimes what's happening is we would use the snapshot capabilities to a minimum. But then what's happening as a... more»
The performance features are most important ones. That would include reporting, you get reports on your performance data. The next is the alerting feature. For example, my applications are going out on some thresholds. So I get alerts,... more»
We got to know which modules of my application are used more by the customers, as well as which modules of my application are very slow. It has helped with my overall my performance statistics. There are different phases of product... more»
If Dynatrace is capturing everything in your application, it has to "sense" that information, and that sensing needs sensors which we have to include in our applications. The more you apply sensors - the more details you want - the more you... more»
The most valuable feature is real-time performance monitoring of my production applications; being able to determine within just a couple of minutes, whether or not my applications are having a problem; and being able to correlate that with... more»
We use it pretty widely across the company. In my particular group, where we've been able to get it situated for all of our .NET and related applications, we've been able to really improve our time to resolution on incidents. We've been able... more»
One of the things that I would like to see is a little bit more ease of use with regards to the analytics component. I know that's new. At a recent conference, there was a session for hands on with analytics that I signed up for. I planned to... more»
Mainly, if the user rarely utilizes user monitoring, this is the biggest feature. Because when the user has an issue, we have configured the alerting so the error or the incident will go to the respective team. Then, the team can contact the... more»
* The deployment configuration and everything is simple. It is not that complicated. That is critical, because that saves time. Whenever something goes wrong, since in deployment everything is easy, you are saving time solving the issues. *... more»
There is a limitation on timeframe. Now, if you look at the dashboard, it will state five minutes, then 15 minutes, then one hour, then six hours, and finally 24 hours. I would like them to provide a set of options defining the business hour.... more»
The stuff that's coming with the new pieces around the Dynatrace Managed SaaS implementation. The ease of implementation there is significant. We've spent a lot of time with AppMon and DC RUM - that's a lot of time to set up, configure. With... more»
The Managed SaaS is going to simplify things a lot and allow us to consolidate a lot of tool sets. We are going to be able to get rid of some of the old Legacy monitoring tools and replace them with something much better that puts everything... more»
One of the things that I was talking about with Simon earlier was getting mobile native replay. They don't have a timeline on it yet, but that's one of the key things we're looking at, to get rid of one of our incumbent products that does... more»
The PurePath is one feature, which I actually like. When I have a problem that is being detected by the alerting profiles, I just go in and see what the part is talking to, then what its dependencies are. For example, if a middleware... more»
When Dynatrace shows us an entire lifecycle. I can go back to my document and see A points to B, then B points to C, and so on. I can then back and see that I plugged it in every box to see how it is behaving and how the product is... more»
* To improve in Dynatrace the log analytics, this is the first thing that has to be enabled. * We are using Splunk or Sumo Logic as an enterprise logging tool. We have been there for a long time, since even before the Dynatrace was. There... more»
What I like about the APM is that it allows us to quickly identify where there are issues. It allows us to configure health rules so that we can, based on our own experience, determine when an application is behaving incorrectly. It's very... more»
A couple of things that it's done is that it's allowed us to become a bit more proactive as opposed to reactive. We can see from the dashboards when a problem is happening before it becomes too serious. It allows us to react much quicker than... more»
If you look at, for example, the two big updates that are coming out, as mentioned in the keynote address at a recent conference, I think those are two really big ones. For example, the ability to automate the deployment of the agents and the... more»
The most valuable feature is the live reporting on the current health\performance of our application: Are all of our transactions going smoothly? Are we having a bottleneck somewhere? Identifying problems before they impact the users. The... more»
The benefits are less man hours, less downtime, and faster resolutions. In the past, it was, "Oh no. The application isn't working. Let's fix it." It might get fixed within 24 hours because we did not have any idea what the issue was. It... more»
A year earlier, if someone had asked me about room for improvement, I would've said end-user monitoring, which they have now. Analytics was great. I didn't even think that we would need that. I think I would like to see a better way to deploy... more»
