AppDynamics

We had slowness, but didn't know where. We quickly would find out if it was the network, database, app server, webserver, or otherwise. They don't like me saying this, but it's a great "finger-pointer".

Dynatrace

Dynatrace provides real time insight into your web applications, your dev-ops/infrastructure & can give you a live view of how your end users are experiencing and interacting with your website. It does every single one of these things exceedingly well. It can help minimize any errors before they occur - preventing data loss at scale & minimizing downtime during production. You can eliminate problems before they cause severe damage due to their extensive alerting system.

Pros

  • Integration with multiple frameworks (Java, NodeJS, .NET, etc). Good database monitoring tool as well as end-user and synthetic user monitoring tool.
  • Works great for on-premise and is always maturing and keeping up with industry trends.
  • It's been in Garter's Leader Quad for years now.
  • Very intuitive web UI and IT, Mgmt, QA, Devs, and Ops could easily use it.

  • We loved Dynatrace's ability to show the data flow - from the front end points through the back end points straight to the database and various API's. It was advanced in its data visualization. This is useful for debugging - showing when/where the errors are. It can even enable non-technical individuals in the corporation to help debug
  • Dynatrace has some great highly customizable integration options as well as monitoring. You can configure your layout & integration options to create custom monitoring alerts for your applications performance. Further you can increase the extensibility of using a REST API on your architecture.
  • Some advanced dev-ops systems are utilizing Kubernetes/docker aswell as Node.JS - Dynatrace was able to log and help understand all of our dev-ops needs. It gave us native alerts based off of deviations from the baseline that we set during initial configuration. These metrics are priceless.

Cons

  • The initial set up for some parts of the features could be better documented.

  • Create flexible and detailed reports from logs collected by the Dynatrace agent-based solution.
  • Track network congestion on different points of an enterprise network.
  • Use the CMDB of ITOM tools such as Service Now to tag with meaningful attributes the elements monitored.
