"The most valuable feature of New Relic APM is the dashboard, New Relic Insights. I configured my own dashboard to monitor certain parameters.""End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good.""The service maps that it creates, the health maps that it creates, the insights that it provides, etc., are all quite useful.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring.""The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."

Cons
"If I want to track any round-trip or breakdowns of my response times, I'm not able to get it. My request goes through various levels of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and comes back to my client machine. Suppose that my request has taken 10 seconds overall, so if I want to break it down, to see where the delay is happening within my architecture, I am not able to find that out using Stackdriver.""It is difficult to estimate in advance how much something is going to cost.""Lacking sufficient operations documentation."

More Google Stackdriver Cons »

"I would like to see the company implement the AI auto-baseline feature which Dynatrace has.""The deployment process could be improved.""The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be."
