Quotes From Members

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

"We use AppDynamics and Elastic. The reason why we're using Elastic APM is because of the license count. It's very favorable compared to AppDynamics. It's inexpensive; it's economical.""The solution allows us to dig deep into data.""For full stack observability, Elastic is the best tool compared with any other tool .""The price is very less expensive compared to the other solutions."

More Elastic APM Pros »

"The most valuable features are infrastructure monitoring and application performance monitoring (APM).""The solution is quite stable."

More New Relic Browser Pros »

"Elastic APM's visualization is not that great compared to other tools. It's number of metrics is very low.""The solution would be better if it was capable of more automation, especially in a monitoring capacity or for the response to abnormalities.""The auto-discovery isn't nearly as good. That's a big portion of it. When you drop the agent onto the JVM and you're trying to figure things out, having to go through and manually do all that is cumbersome.""The solution needs to use more AI. Once the product onboards AI, users would more effectively be able to track endpoints for specific messages."

More Elastic APM Cons »

"It would help customers if there were an on-premises version available.""The solution does not provide input on how the page performs in a big group. It just says that the page performance is bad, but it does not say what can be done to improve it. If they could provide some insight or guidance on how to make improvements, that would be a big help."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The solution allows us to dig deep into data.
Top Answer: I don't have any details in terms of pricing. It's not an aspect of the solution I am familiar with.
Top Answer: There needs to be less boiler code. That's where I see a solution such as Dynatrace as being very good. We need to just deploy the Dynatrace and then it just uses all the TCP packages et cetera, to… more »

Elastic APM is an application performance monitoring system built on the Elastic Stack. It allows you to monitor software services and applications in real time — collect detailed performance information on response time for incoming requests, database queries, calls to caches, external HTTP requests, and more. This makes it easy to pinpoint and fix performance problems quickly.

Elastic APM also automatically collects unhandled errors and exceptions. Errors are grouped based primarily on the stacktrace, so you can identify new errors as they appear and keep an eye on how many times specific errors happen.

New Relic Browser provides deep visibility and actionable insights into real users' experiences on your website. With standard page load timing (sometimes referred to as real user monitoring or RUM), New Relic measures the overall time to load the entire webpage. However, New Relic Browser goes beyond RUM to also help you monitor the performance of individual sessions, AJAX requests, and JavaScript errors extending the monitoring throughout the entire life cycle of the page.
