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.

Micro Focus SiteScope

SiteScope is definitely well suited in an HP server environment. It is also well suited for virtual server environments. It is also well suited for those who are happy with email and text based message alerting.It may not be appropriate in other environments where monitoring physical components is critical. Because HP SiteScope does not monitor certain physical components, it does fall short of being able to be a "one stop shop solution" in regard to monitoring. It is not well suited for those looking for logic in how alerts are sent and cascade to other people or groups.

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.

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • Alerts can be configured as per business requirement.
  • It can take remedial action, when defined for a particular situation.
  • Severity, priority of tickets which are created upon a trigger can be well defined.
  • The teams which need to be alerted can be configured in the tool itself, in case of any event.

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.

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • Sitescope is particularly used for infrastructure monitoring. Other kinds of monitors cannot be set using HP sitescope.
  • Sitescope cannot have graphs like splunk which is why we have splunk as well which is an additional cost for the company.
  • We can't have a direct regex operations on data inside HP sitescope. We need to have the logs placed as a single log and then do that.

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.

Can't really answer this. Setup was easy and no support has really been used at this point.

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

Micro Focus SiteScope

SiteScope can be easily deployed. It required less care feeding as it is quite stable. Compared to other products which are agent-based, HP SiteScope can monitor remotely without any issues. We selected HP Sitescope as it was easier to manage compared to the other tools which require more human resources to manage.

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.

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • Sitescope does exactly what it was purchased for. It may take some time to set it up but once its set up it is a rock solid product.
