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.

DX Application Performance Management

CA Wily is well suited for monitoring the load balanced application nodes and determine their main performance bottlenecks like if problem exists in heap or in some connection issues. But I think when it comes to providing the entire report of the application, it is less appropriate as there is no way to create the entire report of the test for all the counters monitored. Also there is no way to detect some issues based on the system configuration.

Pros

AppDynamics

  • What sold me was the agent-less monitoring of the databases so we could actually see in real time what days/times we needed to apply additional CPU resources.
  • Provides complete visibility on the application's performance (Application Monitoring), database performance, and infrastructure performance ranging from 1 day - 1 year.
  • The level of insights it provided helped us address the production issues quickly and we started using it for all new development and deployment. It helped us move from being reactive to proactive in identifying and managing issues/ bottlenecks

  • Alerting which can be customized by the end user.
  • Visualization of the metrics and data presented to provide a unique and attractive interface.
  • Flexibility to manage actions and commands that we deem important for each application. The ability to define these and customize the metrics reported for each individual application is huge for us.

Cons

AppDynamics

  • SaaS is developed prior, then on-premise. We have reasons to need all of it on premise. They stay in step pretty well, and will fulfill promises to deliver. Sometimes, a new functionality is available only in SaaS until it's available for on-premise (2-8 months later depending)
  • It's not a real-time monitoring solution. There's a 90 second delay. That wasn't a problem for me, but I had a few that had issue with that.

  • We are facing challenges to meet RFP requirements in few areas where I would recommend CA to improve.
  • We are facing challenges for non (java and dotnet application) which CA APM does not support. SAP is another solution where CA APM is not able to address our business requirement.

Alternatives Considered

AppDynamics

AppDynamics was trialled in a shoot-out between New Relic and Dynatrace and just about edged New Relic simply for the ability to drill down to the methods and lines of code in the error monitoring, which is an invaluable feature for a development manager. New Relic Insights provides slightly easier dashboarding and New Relic generally is easier to use, but AppDynamics just came out on top.

App Dynamics seems to be far easier to instrument and has little overhead for additional configurations. While Team Center is a nice addition to the overall APM process. I feel it needs to be more streamlined in how to implement and configure. Not having a universal console for all the separate pieces is a distraction at best

Return on Investment

AppDynamics

  • No noticeable ROI as such but that's mainly down to our application type. E-Commerce organisations and similar would benefit hugely.
  • Did provide us early visibility of failing calls which got stuck in a loop and spammed some of our servers.
  • Positive impact in terms of highlighting slow running queries.

DX Application Performance Management

  • One APM solution can manage application systems distributed across many data centers, ones you own, and ones that you do not. The APM solution simply follows your application around. If you use VMware vMotion to move a VM that contains a Java application, the APM solution simply adjusts.
  • You benefit from the combination of the hosted back end and the Agile development practices of the APM vendor. If the APM vendor only has to enhance and maintain one copy of the back end, that back end can be evolved much more quickly than if the vendor has to ship software to customers and then support multiple back releases. So with an APM as a Service offering, the value of the offering simply improves over time at a faster rate than with on premise software.
  • We do not have to install and maintain an application system and its associated middleware and databases in order to manage your applications. There is only one back end and it is managed by the vendor.
