AppDynamics

Excellent tool for Application monitoring. Can be combined with Performance tests to understand pain points in the application and improve Setting up alarms/notification on an excellent UI is awesome. If you want to fine-tune performance issues looking at various layers of architecture like middle layer, DB layer, etc.., this tool is a perfect fit. Areas that are not best fit - In my opinion, If you want to do infrastructure monitoring AppDynamics is not yet there. Eventually, it will catch up is what I think.

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

  • AppDynamics community support is really strong so even if you are not premium member of its product. You can reach out to community regarding your issue and the resolution is quite strong.
  • Documentation maintained with each version support is quite good. So make sure if you looking for any kind of implementation do check the version as every new version they release new feature and fix the bugs of previous version.
  • Trial product is really good as they provide this option of running controller in the cloud without you getting your hands dirty with installation parts and checking the ports numbers that need to be opened for communication purpose.

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

  • It's has two versions - the actual and lite. The lite version only shows data from last 2 hours. It is certainly not enough to monitor.
  • Some data gets lost on all functions.
  • Sometimes JVM errors and application error[s] show up - not sure why.

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.

Data dog, it's not an APM to me, yet. It's more like a Nagios or PRTG. And New Relic, it was good. Now it's poor in setup a .Net application. AppDynamics is simply perfect in setup, usage, tips, alarms. It's really what we needed for our environment. All in a single application, and, "fast".

  • Data capture module helped us to link technical data with business data and support customers far more efficiently

  • 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.
