Likelihood to Recommend

Apica WebPerformance

It's a good starter solution, but it was difficult to maintain. Often, the vendor wanted to use us as a guinea pig for upgrades and then writing the upgrade document based on what they found/broke/etc with our environment. I prefer late adopter.

Do you need to monitor OS-based workloads? Do you have a mix of on-prem and Cloud instances? Do you need to have a converged view to see your OS, application, real-user monitoring (REUM), Synthetics, and other time-series data? New Relic is the platform that can deliver on those requirements.Their technical support one of the best engagements we have had with a vendor. Exemplary in every way!

Pros

Apica WebPerformance

  • It is an easy-to-use product and you can build out checks with Firefox Selenium IDE (no longer supported). A good measure of availability.

New Relic

  • New Relic lets you drill down into the nitty-gritty of your application, breaking down requests however far you want in order to inspect the performance of your application throughout the request lifecycle.
  • New Relic offers many integrations with other services and technologies, making it easy to get it set up and start using it.
  • New Relic offers many views and types of visualizations to help you understand what's going on in as much detail as you want to know.

Cons

Apica WebPerformance

  • It's very clunky. Infrastructure is large and very difficult to upgrade.
  • SaaS and On-premise versions are different. There is an LDAP integration but users can only be assigned to one group (i.e. department). If you are in 2 departments, you need 2 separate logins.
  • It filled a gap in monitoring for us, but we're looking to move on.

New Relic

  • New Relic can instrument many web frameworks out-of-the-box, but some of the less-popular frameworks require development.
  • It can be hard to express that some 400-series responses are acceptable and expected, but that an unusual volume of them could be a defect.
  • New Relic is very expensive, particularly if you have many QA environments.

I have not yet found any similar product that offers me this range of features to help us keep our online service fast and reliable. Besides this, New Relic is constantly evolving by adding new plugins to emerging technologies and platforms. Server performance measuring features are a key point as our user database grows.

New Relic interface can be tricky to setup sometimes, especially on dashboards, but the overall usability is great. We also find particularly interesting the chart creation tools. There are no major issues that prevented us using any of their services.

There are times I feel that the initial support is lacking. And in some cases the automated responses of not hearing anything are annoying if the reason why there has been no movement is because we are still waiting to hear back from NR support. So, i think they should loose the automation as it can seem disingenuous

The documentation was clear and concise; the only issue we ran into was custom application naming. Due to HTTPD mod_fcgid and the need for the application name to be set in php.ini (not in .htaccess or the virtual host directive) ... we had issues setting this up.

Alternatives Considered

Apica WebPerformance

Seemed to work well, but we didn't want to do a long renewal. Other products are maturing and better integrated with our systems. It works for now, but we're looking to replace it.

We had originally looked into CloudWatch to monitor our resources since we have our stack built in AWS, but found that it would take additional work to setup the dashboards, alerts, and details that we wanted to see in our reports. It was worth the additional investment for us to get the data we needed with less work.

It's easy to scale. However, it isn't as easy to keep track of costs and who own's what/
