“Hands down” it would be Dynatrace. I did a POC, business case for it and used it for 7 years, both APM and One Agent (this last one was only a few months).
The biggest advantages to Dynatrace “One Agent”:
1. Agentless, i.e., do not have to configure startup processes, e.g., JVM args.
2. Automatically discovers your integration touchpoints out-of-the-box.
3. Can do root cause analysis down to the line of code in minutes.
4. Excellent integration to familiar perf test tools for easy correlation of APM data to Script steps.
