AppDynamics

AppDynamics is really good for comprehensive application monitoring and alerting, but does carry a learning curve to get the real value out of it.

Foglight

Foglight is particularly helpful when you have multiple platforms, software solutions, or applications running across a variety of networks. It allows users to pinpoint potential problems across these fields and combat them to minimize disruption to the technology itself. The alerts are generally almost instantaneous which allows swift responses and low business interruption.

Pros

  • It provides a break down of trends based on a baseline. This gives you an idea on how the application is performing.
  • The ability to drill down and look at the application code is extremely helpful.
  • The application has the ability create its own baseline, which by far is one of the best features.

  • Pinpointing of issues

Cons

  • Search function. As of now we need to drill down through the tiers in order to get to a specific section. A search function via keyword would make drilling down much faster.
  • A historical view function where you can overlay a WoW (week over Week) view. This would provide value when creating custom graphs. An overlay of WoW can give a comprehensive view of performance and allow for comparison and validation of issues.

  • There are not many problems with this product
  • Limited ability to use Foglight itself to solve problems it identifies

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

We were previously using Oracle to monitor resources across servers and networks. In general, that product was alright but the Foglight alerts are far superior to Oracle. The business goal of using Foglight is really to minimize business interruption costs so the faster and more noticeable the alerts, the better the product is at solving our problems.
