Dynatrace NAM (formerly DCRUM)

If you have an application service like SAP or Oracle Forms with a client-server architecture with clients across the country, with Dynatrace you can monitor real user transactions from clients to main servers in a central point. Then you can pinpoint whether you are experiencing regional networking issues, application performance degradation, or SQL queries latency.

Pros

CoScale

  • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
  • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Dynatrace NAM (formerly DCRUM)

  • The ability to correlate Citrix users and their performance to an actual backend application.
  • Full insight into SAP over all the protocols as well as the customized code makes DCRUM a nice augmention to Solution Manager.
  • The high capacity to decode 20 Gbps traffic on a single box/probe makes it easy to slot in even in high density populated DCs.
  • In an effort to help understand and decode unknown traffic the configuration wizard helps and suggests what things to use in the datastream, since hardly any customers have documentation that covers the network traffic/protocol.
  • It's also very handy to be able to define specific traffic to/from a node as Software Services when they are a shared resource, such as a database, web farm or a DNS. That enables you to cherry pick from as many software services as you want when building the application delivery chain which makes up what a user perceives as "an application".
  • High capacity netflow processing helps you to get insight into devices that might be out of reach for various reasons.
  • One very convenient thing is the self-monitoring/maintenance of the system. Often the installations are left running for a very long time and there is comfort in knowing that they will maintain themselves with data rollup and cleaning tasks so you won't be met by a blank screen due to a full HD or the inability to restart without user intervention.

Cons

CoScale

  • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
  • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Dynatrace NAM (formerly DCRUM)

  • Its configuration requires a lot of technical and business knowledge to drive monitoring expectations to dashboards.
  • DCRUM needs a robust monitoring architecture to store, analyze and visualize all collected data.
  • DCRUM can't monitor the latest Microsoft Exchange versions.

We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

The only thing missing for a 10, would be if they texted or called you back.

Alternatives Considered

CoScale

CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

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

CoScale

  • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
  • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.

Dynatrace NAM (formerly DCRUM)

  • Dynatrace DRUM has helped us to discover issues before affecting a wider range of users.
  • Dynatrace DCRUM has generated a visual impact to monitor degradation service issues to help us resolve problems faster.
