Valuable for infrastructure owners and useful for real-time information and transaction tracking

What is our primary use case?

We are using it mainly for monitoring client infrastructure, IT infrastructure, middleware applications, and servers-based and cloud-based applications.

Pros and Cons

  • "The transaction tracking feature from IBM is the most important feature for us. It is something that provides a terrific value for us and our clients. It has a lot of data sources and agents that are collectors. It is also stable."
  • "Its web user interface is a little bit old in comparison to other solutions, such as New Relic, and it should be improved. Its scalability and technical support should also be improved. Currently, it is scalable, but only in a vertical way. They provide good technical support, but the initial steps for a new case can be improved to fasten the resolution process."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. It has fantastic functionalities. I would rate IBM Application Performance Management an eight out of ten.

Provides valuable breakdown of information, but the agent negatively impacts server performance

What is our primary use case?

We are a service provider and this is one of the solutions that we implement for our customers. One of our largest customers uses this solution to monitor the performance of their application for Enterprise Content Management. It is deployed on-premises.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the breakdown that it provides, such as a description of the fields for a particular transaction."
  • "Technical support can be slow and needs improvement."

What other advice do I have?

Depending on the requirements, this may be a solution that I recommend. It is working, but it is not the best one. I would discuss the details of the requirements and environment with the customer before implementing this solution. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
