In scenarios where proactively preventing performance issues is a priority, AppDynamics shines. Its machine learning capabilities and automatic baselining help predict and address potential problems before they impact users. If an organization has relatively simple monitoring needs and doesn't require the advanced features provided by AppDynamics, simpler and more cost-effective monitoring tools may be a better fit.

Logz.io is an effective solution if your alerting needs are fairly straightforward and you don't need long-term retention of logs with easy access. If being able to maintain easy access to logs longer than this is necessary, another solution might be better. If you need a high degree of precision with alerting triggers and the ability to suppress alerts, you will need to combine Logz.io with an integration to get this or you might consider a different solution.

I initially struggled trying to ensure the correct data was returned in the Kibana search, but I found it overall easy to use. Some of the UI is not as seamless as I'd expect, like changing the environment completely resets your search criteria and filters, which is annoying since it's a common use case to search something in multiple environments

I have used Splunk for a short period. It was difficult to connect with the server and it takes much time to connect with the central server but AppDynamics is quite fast in it. Plus the service handlers for Splunk were a little ignorant their response was usually late in AppDynamics we got a great service team that gave us the solution with application bugs and fixes. Overall AppDynamics is more reliable.
