One of the most valuable features is auto-discovery and that it needs little configuration. This was valuable because we had a variety of stacks to support. Also, it collects data at a higher granularity than other tools. Other tools will usually collect data at longer intervals, and that's not usually configurable. But Instana collects data much more frequently, around every second and, as the data gets older, it stores samples of it. For something that is an issue, if the data is sampled, you may not be able to figure out the behavior of that application. You may be looking for when a very small spike occurred. If you're only collecting one data point per minute, you may not be able to catch that behavior. If you're collecting more frequently, you can. The granularity is a useful feature. View full review »
