AppDynamics

We had slowness, but didn't know where. We quickly would find out if it was the network, database, app server, webserver, or otherwise. They don't like me saying this, but it's a great "finger-pointer".

Precise Application Performance Platform

We like Precis, but there are better platforms out there that offer website and database integration, and cost less.

Pros

  • AppDynamics provides an excellent overview of all the interactions between all of your various applications, providing a high-level view of the overall health of the whole application and any interactions or elements that are unhealthy can be seen from here.
  • AppDynamics focusses on Business Transactions, rather than overall application or server performance, meaning you can quickly see if one part of the system is not working as it should, meaning production issues are shown clearly as isolated problems (if they are) rather than overall application health problems.
  • AppDynamics provides excellent functionality with regards to tracing coding exceptions - errors can easily be drilled down to the method or line of code that is problematic.
  • AppDynamics is hugely flexible allowing very fine grained configuration and customisation.

  • Provides a platform for the collection of data and additional supporting documents.
  • Provides private working space for reviews, and allows for multiple, blind reviews.
  • Provides the ability to communicate with all audiences, including applicants and reviewers.

Cons

  • It's just so complicated - it takes a while to get to grips with and needs careful thought and planning to get the most out of it. AppDynamics do provide excellent support for this though and will guide you.
  • It doesn't list out enough Database Transactions in the APM licencing model.

  • The website is clunky and does not allow for copying submissions, which require applicants to re-enter their information, and that of their colleagues for every application.
  • Their pricing is a bit high compared to their competition.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Return on Investment

  • No noticeable ROI as such but that's mainly down to our application type. E-Commerce organisations and similar would benefit hugely.
  • Did provide us early visibility of failing calls which got stuck in a loop and spammed some of our servers.
  • Positive impact in terms of highlighting slow running queries.

  • This system has allowed staff to focus on other conference activities rather than manually managing the abstract collection and review process.
