    We are a services organization and we use Riverbed SteelCentral AppInternals with our customers. It has allowed us to expand the footprint in the application management business with virtually all of our major accounts. We were able to expand and go into other applications that we weren't in or offering previously. Now, we have a new value proposition for our customer enhanced visibility, enhanced stability, and we can reduce our cost to them because our cost structure is reduced by using Riverbed SteelCentral AppInternals.

    Dynatrace Network Application Monitoring (NAM), formerly DCRUM, has improved greatly compared to when it was DCRUM; however, it still needs a lot of improvement in end-to-end flow capture with regards to network monitoring. Its alerting and integration capabilities are very good and easy to use. But it still needs a lot of tweaking in usability.

    Pros

    Aternity

    • Root cause finding/remediation (it goes beyond analysis).
    • Shows latency between applications and servers.
    • Identifies long-running SQL queries, and puts the onus back on developers to clean up their SQL code.

    Cons

    Aternity

    • The tool demands High CPU resources to perform monitoring which reduces the overall performance and the user experience is sluggish
    • Also a good amount of training is required to set up the different use cases and monitoring parameters which in return demands a dedicated resource to work on the tool

    • Major upgrades process is sometimes unpredictable.
    • The use of SQL Server should be evaluated for something else.

        Alternatives Considered

        Aternity

        There is a wide variety of APM solutions out there for companies to pick from. Riverbed AppInternals sits near the top of the stack certainly. We already deploy steelhead units across the estate with client licenses, that aided us in our decision to select AppInternals. We found the costs of AppDynamics and New Relic ( which we had trials for) both costly against AppInternals.

        Nagios can't trace real user transactions from a front-end tier through a backend-tier,;with Nagios you only can monitor server availability and hardware issues. Riverbed is commonly used to determine networking issues without considering real user transactions impact on an application stack.

        Return on Investment

        Aternity

        • This product has really wonderful features and one of the most valuable ones is the transaction searches into TTW.
        • This will show you the operations that occurred under conditions that the user specifies, giving you the opportunity to drill down on the things that are more important and affecting system performance.
        • Besides that, the capability of analyzing each individual transaction captured to a very low-level detail (method call/line of code). This ability empowers the testing teams to provide more visibility to developers on how they can improve.

        • It helped us figure out network bottlenecks in our environment.
        • It is a very costly tool and a lot of other cheaper tools give same kind of info.
