Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The solution is great for database monitoring. You don't have to install an agent on the database. You just install the server to a database agent. It's a good product for some database administration if you don't want to install an agent on the database for security.The ability to identify the top running queries has been extremely valuable for us.We were able to correct problems, which led to an increase in availability, time savings, and performance for our solutions.AppDynamics is scalable. They can monitor billions of transactions because they're not monitoring all transactions. They're monitoring samples. So, they can offer good monitoring for the huge sites.

The diagnostics and configuration are the solution's most valuable aspects.

Cons
The solution should add some monitoring similar to Oracle monitoring tools for databases. It has a lot of features to monitor SQL queries, and make some recommendation to resolve it. AppDynamics is just monitoring for delays and doesn't provide any recommendations for that. It's a deficiency.Stability-wise, we experienced some performance issues when upgrading from 4.4 to 4.5.Based on the user experience feedback that we have had, I think that the most important thing to improve is the availability of the SaaS, the cloud environment.The solution could improve the server size for AppDynamics to include middleware products, which is doesn't yet cover. If they add middleware for sophisticated sites, AppDynamics would be the global choice.
