We used to have another tool which wasn't as robust. One of our favorite features of AppInternals is the dashboards.

Pros and Cons

  • "We just control on the backend of AppInternals what we want to instrument and what we don't want to instrument."
  • "We have put in a request as an enhancement that we would like to search for items. If we're searching for a URL and we want to know was it a get or was it a post."

Pros and Cons

  • "The product is very useful to find problems in middleware for the application servers, especially agent instrumentation and management is user friendly."
  • "The admin dashboard could be easier as it takes a little bit of time to get used to it."

What other advice do I have?

Every service assurance and monitoring team should try the product. It can probably improve your internal business relationships.

We use it to see the experience of users hitting our sites and analyze performance by region, browser, etc.

Pros and Cons

  • "Browsermetrix, which is real-user monitoring via JS injection and linked back to TTW via cookie. It allows us to see the experience of every user hitting our sites and analyze performance by region, browser, etc."
  • "Deployment and agent patch management is not managed centrally, resulting in a large level of effort to update."

What other advice do I have?

Your most immediate benefits will come from the ARX appliances, but the real rock star is TTW.
