What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I would like for them to develop a feature that controls .net agents remotely. It would be very useful and we don't have this feature now. They need to improve the crossing over of data from large files and they should use LUNIX heavily. There's room for improvement there.
Our users lag how to identify the root cause with this solution. If they could come up with a more user-friendly version, that would be a good thing, since other vendors currently have better features and more user-friendly products than CA APM. As applications move to the cloud, we need more cloud-based solutions from CA APM. This is currently unavailable. I know that this is something that they are looking to do in the future, but I am not sure how with the current solution.
A CA APM agent takes a lot of memory. That is one disadvantage. If you configure CA APM correctly it will still consume around 15 to 20 percent of memory.
* Root cause detection * Easy installation and configuration * It should facilitate real user monitoring to see what your users are experiencing in real time.
Compared to other tools, it's not good. First, there is no auto flow diagram. Second, the alert mechanism is not as good when compared to other tools. Third, there are many different folders, such as front end, back end, and BB queries, but it's very critical to centralize all the business connections. Fourth, there is an issue relative to the build all view.
CEM needs to be simplified, because it causes too many interruptions in our daily work.
It could be faster. For example, when we are upgrading the product, it takes a lot of time and there are a lot of things we have to do manually. If it is automated it would be really helpfull.
Automatic report generation needs work.
User Experience is a BIG one. Integration of all of APM components into one swift deployment. Can't emphasis the above two more.
The installation could be improved. Also, they need to concentrate more on the cloud for cloud monitoring.
