    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.

    It is really good to have Business Process Monitor for being proactive with monitoring critical business services. And it is even more recommended along with APM. However, you will still need some training in order to configure them as they are sophisticated tools.

    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

    • It depends heavily on Vugen so it would be great to give more courses on writing scripts in the Business Process Monitor trainings.
    • When issues arise, we don't have insights into if the issue is from the script itself or if it is a real issue. Here you lose trust in determining which is right until you interfere personally. As an example, one day I got an alert from a business server and the issue was that the script didn't finish successfully and thus it kept the session opened. So the next schedule of the script will fail, not because there is a real issue on the business service, but because you need to go yourself open the application, close all pages, then log out so that the script will continue to monitor.

        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.

        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.
