I like that I can see the stack trace when problems are detected. This points me to the area in the code that needs to be fixed.
Improvements to My Organization:
We have AppDynamics set up to email us alerts when certain things happen. We can start working on a problem before our customer notices.
Room for Improvement:
I did not find it easy to understand at first. It just looked like this sea of information, and I couldn’t see the logical breakdown of things, and the names for things didn’t immediately help me figure out what they were really for – what it could help me see and do.
Use of Solution:
About a year.
None that I am aware of.
I don’t know what we spent on it, but whatever we spent, it was a good investment. This tool is helping us get our application free of bugs and performance issues.
Learn as much as you can about it. It can do more than you think. Make use of the enthusiasm of the AppDynamics employees to help you learn.
