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 Application Monitoring

Well suited when there is a customer with a solution that has issues and they would like to start monitoring. With Dynatrace SaaS is very easy to start monitoring fast with the 2-weeks trial... usually helps a lot with after sales.

Pros

  • AppDynamics provides an excellent overview of all the interactions between all of your various applications, providing a high-level view of the overall health of the whole application and any interactions or elements that are unhealthy can be seen from here.
  • AppDynamics focusses on Business Transactions, rather than overall application or server performance, meaning you can quickly see if one part of the system is not working as it should, meaning production issues are shown clearly as isolated problems (if they are) rather than overall application health problems.
  • AppDynamics provides excellent functionality with regards to tracing coding exceptions - errors can easily be drilled down to the method or line of code that is problematic.
  • AppDynamics is hugely flexible allowing very fine grained configuration and customisation.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Return on Investment

  • Being able to see potential chokepoints throughout all of our systems helped from day one to optimise key areas.
  • The relational diagram for each system actually shown somewhere helps identify what relies on what.

  • Those customers that have started using Dynatrace monitoring are still our customers. This has given us, as a solution supplier, a good way to predict problems and focus on solution development.
