AppDynamics

As it pertains to monitoring database transactions, as our application relies heavily on SQL, AppDynamic's monitoring tool made an immediate impact on sorting which ones are slow. The business transactions that we can capture are limited in the sense that our application works where it can't be limited to 200, so we ended having to setup service endpoints to account for it.

It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

Pros

AppDynamics

  • Giving a network map of our application that shows where slowdowns are occurring and where network traffic is running into a bottleneck.
  • We are able to gather node-specific information that shows the number of sessions a web server or even Redis session statistics.
  • We use AppDynamics to give a holistic view of our application allowing us to quickly narrow in on problems.

  • It provides contextual information so you can reproduce any issue and validate a fix on test environments.
  • It allows us to identify misbehaving application code or business objects that cause application slowdowns and crashes.

Cons

AppDynamics

  • Price of the AppDynamics is high. But it has many valuable features. This makes it difficult for small businesses to enter.
  • Functionality is overkill for most small to midsize businesses (SMBs). When stacking up product units, it can get pricey for enterprises as well.
  • With fine granular configs and customizations available, it will also mean that it is very complicated and requires a certain amount of knowledge before we can make full use of all features in the product. Much careful thought and planning is required to get the most of it. Set-up will be longer. One recommendation is for features to be better documented.

AppDynamics has its own community site that includes forums and a knowledge base. On the forums, you can converse with other members of the community and ask technical questions as you have them. Though this forum isn’t filled with people there are active members for you to gain some valuable insights.

We cannot have any complaints regarding support provided for our deployments by germain CRT. We had some worries that with such big ecosystems of plugins issues are imminent, but it really only takes a few minutes for you to add a new plugin and germain CRT support team is happy to do it for you.

Alternatives Considered

AppDynamics

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

germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.

Return on Investment

AppDynamics

  • AppDynamics isn't cheap, but it definitely helps to ensure our applications and APIs are up and running without issue. The alerting is usually good but occasionally mixed, for example sometimes flagging a single error as a critical issue since the API is usually completely error free.
  • The cost saving in terms of trouble shooting and analyzing issues in production is fantastic - to know about issues before they are reported by customers enables you to be proactive in resolving them and ensuring maximum up time for our applications.
