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.

If you are looking for a software that looks decent but is not something you truly rely on, this is it. I have had bad experiences with IBM Tivoli Monitoring reporting on system errors that were not evident on the systems themselves at all. There is a lot of specific alerting you can set up which is nice.

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.

  • The GUI is easy to read.
  • The software is fairly easy to configure.
  • Almost real-time.

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.

  • The software is not reliable at all.
  • Reports errors that are false-negatives.
  • Hard to configure alarms/alerts.
  • Bulky installation (takes up quite a bit of space).

Alternatives Considered

Better capability set / there are more 3rd party integrations / appdynamics has a bigger profile

We selected IBM Tivoli Monitoring as a bundle deal, other than that I would have probably gone with another vendor. We use Brocade Network Advisor for our SAN also which I would suggest to anyone over this software. The software has not been that reliable for me since we started using it.

  • Clients visibility of business transactions
  • Visibility of server health

  • I would not purchase this again.
  • Other software monitoring tools have been more reliable and easier to manage.
  • Difficult to manage, if you patch the server the software is installed on and have to reboot it, IBM Tivoli Monitoring does not come up clean.
