In scenarios where proactively preventing performance issues is a priority, AppDynamics shines. Its machine learning capabilities and automatic baselining help predict and address potential problems before they impact users. If an organization has relatively simple monitoring needs and doesn't require the advanced features provided by AppDynamics, simpler and more cost-effective monitoring tools may be a better fit.

Auvik is well suited for managed service customers and small-scale SMB customers who do not have enough technical resource to manage and monitor their network. Also for customer who has distributed networks spreaded across worldwide or nation wide, Auvik is well suited since it does not need any on-premise setup at each site except for a collector. For customer who has already adopted and used cloud network and hosting services, Auvik is better as Auvik is also fully cloud based offering
Read full review Pros When an issue arises, AppDynamics shines in root cause analysis. For example, it provides a comprehensive breakdown of the factors contributing to a performance problem. This detailed analysis accelerates the troubleshooting process, allowing our teams to address the root cause swiftly and effectively. Read full review Auvik is the big pic tool of choice for network diagramming, helps layout of our network infrastructure, and we'll know immediately the status of the devices that are successfully communicating, and those that may have, for example, credentials issues. Auvik's "Traffic Insights" are key accelerators for intuitively isolating and resolving traffic-related issues quickly and easily, and the historical information makes it simpler to deduce what aspects may need replacement, capacity improvement, or possibly even re-architecture. Auvik integration tools are excellent solution enhancers - that are of particular interest to our company, as we make use of MS Teams and Connectwise products; we would like to see some features to integrate to ServiceNow as well. Read full review Cons The initial setup process of AppDynamics could be more user-friendly. Some users find the configuration and onboarding to be a bit complex. Improving the onboarding experience could make it more accessible, especially for smaller teams or those with limited resources. It can be difficult for some users to get AppDynamics up and running for the first time. For new users, the platform's usability might be improved by streamlining the onboarding process or providing more user-friendly setup wizards.

The program can be a bit unwieldy at times, however the majority of information is displayed in a readable and friendly way. The maps and popup information box from the bottom can be harder to use on a smaller screen but on a 1080p+ display tends to work fine.

I have used Splunk for a short period. It was difficult to connect with the server and it takes much time to connect with the central server but AppDynamics is quite fast in it. Plus the service handlers for Splunk were a little ignorant their response was usually late in AppDynamics we got a great service team that gave us the solution with application bugs and fixes. Overall AppDynamics is more reliable.

Auvik can stand up against any of the big network management and monitoring solutions on the market. I've implemented and used SolarWinds at many organizations for over 15 years. The paradigm that SolarWinds,
, Prime, etc., work under is completely different than Auvik. It's apparent that Auvik was aiming to solve a different problem and built that solution from the ground up. For any organization responsible for multiple other organizations' infrastructure, Auvik is invaluable in comparison to the other products listed.
