    AppDynamics

    It handles auto-monitoring / configuring a dynamic performance set point that doesn't require manual configuration and the perspective is more end to end which from one perspective is good because you get a view of the whole application end to end but there is less focus than on actual response time to the end-user and detailed breakdown which is in some sense the ultimate purpose of performance monitoring.

    TruView

    Netscout’s TruView monitoring system gives your IT department the perfect view of your network landscape. With the pulse hardware app, you can perform VoIP or HTTP network monitoring tests from specific remote locations and it will populate the analysis results into your console. This will give you perspective on how your sites are performing and detect any out of Service Level Agreement (SLA) performance even before users report it.

    Pros

    AppDynamics

    • Ease of installing the agents is unbelievable. Supports almost all the servers and technologies.
    • The UI is very clean and very intuitive. Setting up widgets, Alarms, notifications are very powerful features
    • The ability to drill down to a particular layer in technology is useful to find out the performance bottlenecks efficiently.

    TruView

    • The app monitoring gives you the details to set different filters and do a quick identification of the root cause of the problem.
    • Remarkable ability to store details of performance to analyze baselining, run advance troubleshooting, error detection and catalog by trends.
    • The ability to sync with a device/interface whether is physical or virtual gives me the standpoint to set analysis upon network traffic across LAN or WAN and also get the insight of Cloud segments, setting the triggers to find out where the behavior changes to non-production traffic.

    Cons

    AppDynamics

    • In terms of dashboard I believe there is plenty of room for improvement as it's lacking many advance like searching data within the dashboard is not possible.
    • Synthetic monitoring part is still complex and need[s] to be addressed as hosting agents for synthetic monitoring is still [a] challenging task.
    • The on premise controller setup requires huge resources and since it's the important component of AppDynamics ignoring it will cause loss of metrics and slowness while capturing metrics.

    TruView

    • Product features are sometimes overwhelming if the IT team is not used to this technology. For a small and mid-size company, the number of settings and work that is needed to implement the solution could be a long and exhausting process.
    • A "lite" version of Visual TruView could help a lot to small sized environments looking to develop the solution.
    • I would like to add some mitigation tools for simple/common problems that could be easily managed by a monitoring tool like Netscout TruView.

    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.

    As mentioned before, our deployment success depended on their expertise. Recommendations and overall response from their support engineers was out of this world. We, as supporters ourselves, are very critical in regards to the response times and knowledge of support services representatives. Often they just want to resolve your ticket not caring about the result, or focus only on the performance review we could give them. That's a standard behavior in most overseas support centers. The TruView engineers and management cared about us, our needs, and how they delivered the help we needed.

    Alternatives Considered

    AppDynamics

    AppDynamics is still a good solution as this is one the earliest tool available in the APM space and people are used to this Application usage. However other products are also doing great as Dynatrace is the biggest competitor since it adds on all the AppDynamics features plus it gives additional information readily available. Now Honeycomb is also rising in terms of SLI and SLO objectives.
    Rekha Yadav | TrustRadius Reviewer

    TruView

    Visual TruView is a solid competitor with solutions such as SolarWinds NPM, Nagios, PRTG, or SolarWinds NTA. Why we chose TruView was because it goes straight to what we were looking for, no hidden modules or subscriptions to secondaries licensing terms, to get the results that we were expecting. TruView takes it to another level.

    Return on Investment

    AppDynamics

    • Platform map drilldown capabilities and code-level visibility helped us to find the root cause of problems faster
    • Threshold alerts made proactive problem handling easier
    • Data capture module helped us to link technical data with business data and support customers far more efficiently

    TruView

    • Tool consolidation, an amazing GUI that shows the most from the very beginning helping the IT Teams to set their own dashboards according to their needs.
    • When they meant one price tag, that's it! You won't get a headache after the purchase process is done.
    • Better be ready to set the scales your organization requires because if you miss something in the design you could get an application size that overrides your initial budget.
