How has it helped my organization?

We can see down into the layers, such as with databases. We can see database queries which are causing problems. We can see CPU usage for different containers. I can do a run and see what errors exist in containers which are causing… more»

What needs improvement?

The GUI has the most room for improvement. Sometimes, it can be a little cumbersome to find things and be able to create your own views, or be able to dig in and understand where things are. Some additional features would be the ability to… more»

What other advice do I have?

A PoC is the best way to go. Put it against an application and go through the paces of tagging, analyzing, and alerting on it. You can understand what it does and how it does it. Give it a very complex application, so you can see how well… more»

What is most valuable?

* It's reliable. * The Curry language is easy to use once you get used to it. * The user interface is pretty responsive. Therefore, it was a cost value proposition decision.

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to diagnose problems before our customers.

What needs improvement?

There are some API gaps that are missing.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The AWS Marketplace pricing is borderline. Every annual renewal, we always contemplate if we are getting what we think we could out of it or could we do it cheaper with some other product.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have our own logging solution previously.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I believe that we did look at another cloud-based solution, but I wasn't at the company during the evaluation process. I would recommend to look at Sumo Logic, but also look at Datadog and Loggly… more»

What do you think of AppDynamics?

What is our primary use case?

We are using it for monitoring. Our applications are in AWS, and the monitoring system is part of AppDynamics.

How has it helped my organization?

We have been able to monitor our applications more accurately.

What is most valuable?

It has better dashboards and more control over everything.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were previously using Dynatrace, then we shifted to…
