Pros and Cons

  • "Immediately allows you to see the relationships between the different nodes."

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest a company takes the time to do an analysis of use cases, of the situation,of what you really need, and then pick the best fit. It's not something you compare by price or simply by features. It is something you should look into for your specific situation and then make a decision based on the use case, based on the business case, the justification that it gives your organization to invest in that tool. Take your time to do that. The other thing is, when you invest in a very rich tool, make sure that you have the people in place to look after it or get a managed service to do it…

A good solution for application monitoring and scalability

What is our primary use case?

We were testing this solution and wanted to do application monitoring for our websites.

Pros and Cons

  • "We had no issues with scalability. It was very good for us."
  • "The user experience is quite confusing. There are too many different development stages. The UI is not very intuitive."

What other advice do I have?

We used the on-premises version of the solution. I would rate the solution nine out of ten. Although we've decided against AppDynamics, I would still recommend the product.
