AppDynamics

Using AppDynamics to gain insights into our application through the view of the endpoint which can be a web server, SQL Database or our storage systems, has provided our support teams the ability to narrow in on problems very quickly by looking at our application from a holistic view. We have been able to isolate a specific error and determine where in the application stack that occurs to determine if there is a coding problem or an issue with how the server communicates with other subsystems.

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

This tool is ideal for use when you have a medium or large amount of assets and you need to have control of them. You can even create a form for those assets so non-IT staff can access it. As an analyst, this tool helps a lot with the inventory task. I think that you will always need a tool like this in your company.

Pros

  • Giving a network map of our application that shows where slowdowns are occurring and where network traffic is running into a bottleneck.
  • We are able to gather node-specific information that shows the number of sessions a web server or even Redis session statistics.
  • We use AppDynamics to give a holistic view of our application allowing us to quickly narrow in on problems.

  • The asset discovery across the network is great.
  • The periodic scanning and updating of asset status is super valuable.
  • The software discovery is outstanding. Receiving list of installed software helps greatly with license compliance.

Cons

  • The user interface can be a bit challenging to use and configure for specific things.
  • Some of the performance graphs, such as CPU usage across many servers, can take some considerable time to set up whereas the same graphs can be compiled very quickly with another monitoring tool like Splunk.
  • I wish there was a way to show more performance graphs of trend lines, where you could mouse over one graph and show stats across all graphs in one dashboard.

  • You can fill the database and link it.
  • You can also add assets that aren't connected with the offline script, I would prefer to get a .exe but this import XML works well.
  • All is handled via the web, I would prefer a GUI standalone client.

Alternatives Considered

New Relic is only SaaS and keys off of AppDex scoring (i.e. industry baselines) and not on my application's baselines. Where most of our stuff is custom apps, going off of industry wasn't valuable to us. It was also cost prohibitive

Return on Investment

  • It's had a good ROI and solved some problems we've been working on for a while.

  • Allow us to stay in compliance with licensing requirements. We usually have just the right amount of licenses +2 or 3. We don't have to guess on where we are.
  • Allows us identify older assets and proactively replace them. Reduces downtime.
  • No negative impacts I can think of.
