AppDynamics

Using AppDynamics to gain insights into our application through the view of the endpoint which can be a web server, SQL Database or our storage systems, has provided our support teams the ability to narrow in on problems very quickly by looking at our application from a holistic view. We have been able to isolate a specific error and determine where in the application stack that occurs to determine if there is a coding problem or an issue with how the server communicates with other subsystems.

Micro Focus SiteScope

HP sitescope is mostly used if we need infrastructure monitoring. And in most companies, we have many servers and need to monitor their health and so Sitescope is a good buy for all such scenarios. It is not very useful when we want to have dashboards and depictions based on the data from Sitescope. We can't index the logs and create regex operations from those logs like we do in other monitoring tools

Pros

AppDynamics

  • The user interface is brilliant, especially the map showing the flow of network traffic between your various pieces of hardware being monitored.
  • Easy to identify slow running queries.
  • Quick and easy to set up.

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • All the infrastructure monitoring things are preexisting and we don't need to set up anything additional when using HP Sitescope. We have monitors for ps, CPU, etc., for our application.
  • HP Sitescope can also run the custom scripts in our servers and send an alert based on the output. For example, we are running one custom script with HP sitescope to monitor large size files and send an alert if they exceed the threshold.
  • Sitescope will have logs as well which can then be forwarded to splunk to draw graphs in splunk for the dashboard. For example, ps is very expensive in splunk and it was disabled. So we are sending that stat from HP sitescope and have a splunk dashboard to show the memory of that process over time.

Cons

AppDynamics

  • 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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

AppDynamics

Appdynamics offered so much more functionality than New Relic, albeit at a more expensive price. The UI was easier to navigate in Appdynamics than in New Relic and it was considerably easier to configure and deploy AppDynamics than New Relic. We had extensive discussions with engineers at AppDynamics and they provided great support in getting us up and running.

Nagios can also do most of the things that HP sitescope can do, but HP sitescope is right on target when it comes to infrastructure monitoring and also cost effective which is why we selected HP sitescope. We also have teh iPhone and Android apps which are very useful for monitoring on mobile devices as well

Return on Investment

AppDynamics

  • AppDynamics has given us the ability to identify and isolate issues much faster. Without it, engineering and dev ops would spend much more time in literally searching for issues. With AppDynamics we have become much more effective overall in identifying issues and resolving them.
  • AppDynamics has also provided support teams a single dashboard where all of our tiers are monitored for performance. At any given time anyone can take a look at the dashboard and see how our environment is performing.
