AppDynamics Database Monitoring Review

Give the ability to monitor database performance but the solution has stability issues


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to check how the database is performing and to log and check queries.

What is most valuable?

The ability to identify the top running queries has been extremely valuable for us.

What needs improvement?

The monitoring of different schemas within the database could be improved. They should split the dashboard into different schemas, instead of having one.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for three to four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability-wise, we experienced some performance issues when upgrading from 4.4 to 4.5. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is pretty easy to scale.

How are customer service and technical support?

I'm not too happy with technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We weren't previously using a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It didn't take long; maybe about an hour.

What about the implementation team?

We used an Enterprise Console List for the deployment.

What other advice do I have?

We used an on-premises version of the solution.

I would rate the solution a seven out of ten. Technical support hasn't been too impressive so we ended up having to resolve our own issues. There are also a few challenges that we've had from a performance perspective when we upgraded from one version to the next.

That said, I would still recommend the solution.
