I'm working for an organization with ~1000 employees and I'm exploring the two monitoring solutions for cloud services: Azure Monitor and PRTG Network Monitor.

Please share your personal experience on the pros and the cons of each product. What would be your choice and why?

Hi pprofessionals,

I'm still a newbie to monitoring tools like APM and I have a question: 

Are there any Application Performance Management (APM) certifications for tools like CA APM, AppDynamics, Dynatrace, or any other APM-related certification?  

Thank you!

I'm researching APM tools. What solutions can perform end-to-end monitoring? I'm looking for a tool that also has the ability to correlate errors. Has anyone tested Tingyun before?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to purchase an APM solution, and looking for some feedback.

I've shortlisted AppDynamics, New Relic, Dynatrace, Datadog, as well as some others like Big Panda and Corelogic that might be used to bolt on as value add. I have experience with AppDynamics, Datadog and Dynatrace but not New Relic - I'm leaning towards New Relic though.

I want to hear how you did your discovery/research, and what were some deciding factors when you finally picked a solution (E.g.: New Relic has xyz but the fact that Datadog gave us 1 and 2 and sort of has xyz made us go with Datadog).

Some background:

I have background in DevOps, Java and Cloud. Theoretically, my group is DevOps but we're still developing in this area. I'm looking to modernize and automate more, and get rid of all the noise. With whatever solution I end up choosing, I want to improve monitoring and do app tracing for developers. I also need predictive analysis. We're currently doing everything on-prem but we have plans to move to the cloud, so the solution needs to support both on-prem and cloud.

I've put together a survey to help me with researching the tools. I'd really appreciate if you could take a few minutes to fill in the survey to help me out: APM tool survey
