What do you like most about AppDynamics?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The release management capabilities are great.
I have found the main feature of the solution to be its ability to analyze an application's code to see where there are issues. Additionally, it is easy to use and configure.
The solution helps us save a lot of time on certain tasks.
In 2014 and 2015, AppDynamics was one of the best products on the market.
AppDynamics is easy to implement if you follow the documentation, and the documentation that they provide is good.
The most valuable feature is the flow map.
From the performance management side, I like everything from business transaction work to tracking. On the database side, we can get a lot of insights from the database. On the server monitoring side, it helped us a lot to find out some of the issues on the VM side because VMs were creating a little trouble for us.
This is a stable product and we definitely plan to continue using it in the future.
The features that I like best are the dashboard and Business Journey.
Provides monitoring more around business processes versus just servers, applications, etc. E.g., with complex systems, where a business process passes across multiple applications, the business needs us to monitor the heath of the process, not just a segment of the application.
It helped to find quick solutions for specific business transactions.
After a major incident, root cause analysis is conducted and, most of the time, we understand what caused the incident and how it can be prevented from happening again.
The most valuable feature is the detailed statistics, like the consumer count, for the ActiveMQ server.
The most valuable feature is the ability to take a report, and in particular, a visual, and link it to actual application performance and then the consequences. This means you can show how an incident or action has an effect on the business.
In AppDynamics, everywhere I go, there's some sort of grouping and aggregation function, or there's some sort of timeline that lets me zero in more quickly on the traces that I need. They go to more pains to aggregate and bubble the important ones to the top. That removes a lot of manual work.
We previously had an operations team continuously monitoring applications. Now, they just have set things up and our developers can monitor, view, and act on them, accordingly.
We have been able to monitor our applications more accurately.
The most valuable feature is having our services being available and healthy.
It provides everything into one view, so we can track information from one place to another.
AppDynamics makes it much easier for us to detect problems or issues before they become problems. We have alerting on all of our business transactions.
The real user monitoring helps us evaluate our customers' real experiences, which is valuable as an eCommerce company.
Being able to install it on-prem and monitor our on-prem infrastructure is important for us... Most of our infrastructure is on-prem. We have highly scalable systems and AppDynamics will help us monitor our load on-prem. Our systems range from simple to the most complex and it gives us the visibility across transactions, in one dashboard.
It is used to test customer behavior on a website.
It has improved our organization with its ability to catch issues quickly and fix them.
Autodiscovery of application topology, based on real user traffic.
Despite dozens of deployments across hundreds of applications- we have yet to see a case where AD is negatively impacting application execution or functionality.
I'm comparing AppDynamics and Dynatrace for a company with over 5K employees. What are the pros and cons of each pproduct?
