AppDynamics is well suited to large IT organizations ie telcos where there is legacy combined with modern systems ie containerized environments and cloud deployments, mobile, web as well as onprem. AppDynamics can follow the transactions into all of these areas and provide a single view on the health of the systems.

Splunk
Splunk RUM was really helpful in identifying brute force attacks as we used Splunk query language and were able to identify how many failed login attempts were made from which country and blacklisted those IP's. Since Splunk entirely depends on Splunk query language, if there are no logs or you delete the logs you can't perform analysis, as there is no stream of live data and also it depends on how frequently your data can be indexed.
