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".

vRealize Operations

vRealize Operations (VRO) is the best option if you are a complete VMware shop. Like if you have vCenter, VRA and VCO. This is the right product to monitor your virtual environments. But it's not suited for any OS and application level monitoring. Some functions are very complex and need good technical knowledge. I cannot make some HTML based daily reports which we could use for management level reporting(like a graph and table in one report).

Pros

  • It is a VMware product so integration is so easy.
  • It is agentless and monitoring very well.
  • I like the dynamic threshold option where value is set on its own.

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.

We are a VMware shop and need monitoring from VMware. Also, I am not the decision maker here. I believe because of being a VMware shop we choose VRO and also may be my company got a great deal. I like this product although there is a lot of stuff to improve

Return on Investment

  • It has had a positive impact because anytime there is an issue, we go to AppDynamics first to see what the root cause could have been.
  • We have been providing transaction snapshots to vendors for troubleshooting.
  • So far, I have had nothing but positive feedback from other team members on the functionality and how other team members are using the application.
