"The features that I have found most valuable are its graphs - if I need any statistics, in Kubernetes or Kong level or VPN level, I can quickly get the reports.""The most valuable feature is the multi-cloud integration, where there is support for both GCP and AWS.""Provides visibility into the performance uptime."

"I like it that one can match IPs with the application name.""The most valuable aspect of this solution is the integration with their other systems. It's easy to understand and it points out the relevant problems in the enterprise.""As an Administrator, before we bought this AppInternals, I didn't have visibility on why items were slow or why an application was not running. This gives us the ability to see what's going on. The application is load balancing. We can now see if its own server has issues or just one specific server has issues."

Cons
"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

"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 »

"The technical support is not very good and should be improved.""I would like for it to have automated updates, the way the product updates itself should be all automated, as opposed to what it is now.""It would be great if the solution could offer fixed bundles and more features."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Educational pricing is available for this solution.""We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.""Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD."
