    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.

    AppOptics is good for small to medium-sized organizations with less than 150 servers or less than 40 services to monitor. It performs well for this use case where people need to get an overview of application performance, and 95%ile data is okay. Somewhere every data point and every record is critical; it should be avoided.

    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.

    SolarWinds

    • Request tracing with code profiling.
    • Automated alerting on latency and response codes for each API.
    • Low resource overhead while collecting data from our application servers.
    • Highly performant dashboard that enables us to make progress rapidly.
    • Very resilient. We have not seen a downtime in their service in the entire year that we have used them.

    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

    • The only thing that I would add is the possibility to display every single query our servers receive to eventually analyze them and query through them. We could also generate nice visualizations from that. Right now I believe we can only see averages.

        As far a usability is concerned for AppOptics, it is just as matter of few minutes away even if you start from scratch, as all you need to do is register on the site and you will get the URL and password. And after this all you have to do is follow the instruction, as per the configuration wizard (tool tip) within the console for various technology such as SQL, IIS, .NET

        The support I give the highest rating because it is really amazing. Every time we triggered the tool support, we were very well served very quickly and efficiently. The problems were solved quickly and without stress. The staff helped us within minutes and had a lot of patience with us

        Solarwinds AppOptics is rated as 9 out of 10 and the reason is there are still few areas where AppOptics needs to improve such as Service Now Integration, GCP Cloud Support, Better Dashboard visualization for application transactions flow. Other than these feature everything is there in AppOptics and that's a reason given 9 points out of 10.

        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.

        What we found positive in AppOptics from others is:
        • Easy to install and manage.
        • Various stack support.
        • Point to point deep-dive metrics and correlation.
        • Metrics like DB connection, query analysis, latency in API calls, and other connections, response codes for various APIs, etc are the key ones in our case, which AppOptics provides efficiently.
        • Alerts can be sent on different channels.

        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.

        SolarWinds

        • Faster Troubleshooting of issues in the infrastructure or our application, which helped us reduce downtime
        • Helped us identify resource bottlenecks, which in turn, helped reduce our overall footprint and operational costs.
        • It enables us to continuously monitor our application and alert us. This has allowed us to focus on product development without worrying about any underlying, hidden issues.
