Cons
This solution could be improved with better compatibility with legacy applications.It would be nice if there were a way that it could be made simpler, given the complexity of the things that we're monitoring.This solution needs better support for security and monolithic batch processes.If the user interface were made more intuitive then it would really benefit the product.Sometimes it is hard to find the right setting for what you want to change.This solution needs improvement in terms of automation.We would like the AI to produce more scientific data with less configuration.The reporting is still too young and needs to be improved.

They should improve their support process and add chat.ScienceLogic should provide detailed documents to customer as the current documents are not sufficient.They should add CLI command modes​ and scripts for high performance.One important area we feel could be improved is the UI. It takes a lot of clicks to do very simple tasks.They should improve database issues in HA and Failover mode, and provide documentation for all users , even if they are not customers.Addressing duplicate IPs: There is the ability to edit the DB and fix this, but adding some logic to understand them would be a plus.I would like to see out-of-the-box standard dashboards for common services.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our annual costs were about the same for both AppDynamics and Dynatrace.Pricing can be high, especially for Portuguese standards. But as one says, you get what you pay for.Setup cost is very low considering that it is an almost totally, automatic process.Licensing is very interesting, as you pay only for what is being monitored. A lot of things are given away for no additional cost. If you have a great IT consolidation, it will be pretty cheap. If you have a lot of servers, it will be heavier.I have not been able to observe more than 1% overhead, despite Dynatrace saying that it can be slightly higher in some situations.Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is excellent.The pricing and licensing are very expensive.Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was a pretty straightforward process. We had no hiccups.

Absorb other elements as you grow.Pricing between the two is quiet large therefore you can save some money if you don't require to collect all info on each device.
