Likelihood to Recommend

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

AppDynamics

  • 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

After looking at a number of different alternatives to AppDynamics its error reporting seems to be the greatest out of the lot. It tracks anything imaginable and allows for the reporting as much as you want with as much information as you want.

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.

Return on Investment

AppDynamics

  • It has had a positive impact because anytime there is an issue, we go to AppDynamics first to see what the root cause could have been.
  • We have been providing transaction snapshots to vendors for troubleshooting.
  • So far, I have had nothing but positive feedback from other team members on the functionality and how other team members are using the application.

  • 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.
