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.

Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring

While Site24x7 can monitor almost anything, it is the most cost effective when using its basic monitor. The basic monitor covers certificate health, web sites/services, general server health, IIS health, and much more. The advanced monitors cover SQL, Microsoft Failover Clustering, etc. but even though we get three advanced monitors with the initial subscription, we don't use them because the SQL monitoring can be very noisy without some fine-tuning. It wasn't uncommon to get woken up at 3 am because of a SQL anomaly that tripped a metric.

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.

Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring

  • Very clean website UI. Tests are well categorized and navigation is very simple.
  • The accompanying mobile app is very useful when on the go as it can also notify you of any issues.
  • The cost of the platform is very cheap and the cost also scales at a low amount.
  • No on-premise footprint. All cloud-based.
Rob Bates | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring

  • Analysis: Site24x7 sends a report when a site is back up, with an "analysis" of the outage. The idea is to help pinpoint the cause, but it's almost always useless.
  • Overalerting on larger outages: Site24x7 sends an alert on every site that we have configured when they go down. A hierarchical setup would be better, or some way for it to recognize that if more than two sites are down simultaneously, it only needs to send one alert with that information. Getting 12 text messages at 1 AM is not fun.
  • Complex setup: It takes a long time to set up everything for monitoring. Automation would be nice.

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.

I have only had to use support once, so I can't go into much detail about their support team. The one time I did use it the response was fast but the resolution took some time.

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

Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring

Each solution excels in their own areas. Site24x7 provides the easiest and most cost-effective transactional monitoring from the previous and existing solutions which we use. However, Solarwinds Orion suite, which includes the virtualization manager, gives us full-stack monitoring of our VMware environment, which Site24x7 cannot. In the same way, Cloudwatch gives us better visibility into our AWS workloads compared to SolarWinds.AlertSite was previously used for our transactional monitoring, and while the configuration of transactions and playback with Deja Click plugin was incredibly beneficial, it didn't justify the cost difference to Site24x7.

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.

Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring

  • We are better able to be notified of critical downtime, allowing us to act faster to restore critical services/applications.
  • Sometimes we get flooded with emails due to false alerts and that can often be distracting to many of us.
  • Thanks to their add-on pricing scheme, it eliminates the need to buy expensive modules straightaway, thus saving money.
