CA Wily is well suited for monitoring the load balanced application nodes and determine their main performance bottlenecks like if problem exists in heap or in some connection issues. But I think when it comes to providing the entire report of the application, it is less appropriate as there is no way to create the entire report of the test for all the counters monitored. Also there is no way to detect some issues based on the system configuration.

Easy to set up in all environments. With this tool, the company is now able to measure both well-functioning data and data that needs immediate intervention. This early detection facilitates decisions about actions to correct the disorder and improve indexes. Stackdriver is now essential for the company's security and monitoring team and we plan to expand to other branches.

Pros
Broadcom
  • Alerting which can be customized by the end user.
  • Visualization of the metrics and data presented to provide a unique and attractive interface.
  • Flexibility to manage actions and commands that we deem important for each application. The ability to define these and customize the metrics reported for each individual application is huge for us.

Cons
Broadcom
  • We are facing challenges to meet RFP requirements in few areas where I would recommend CA to improve.
  • We are facing challenges for non (java and dotnet application) which CA APM does not support. SAP is another solution where CA APM is not able to address our business requirement.

  • For searching and filtering the logs the system is slow sometimes.
  • An agent needs to be installed in each VM to monitor specific metrics.
  • The pricing model is confusing.

It is also a great problem detection tool, and this is extremely important for General Motors.
The user can count on the ease of flexible panels and advanced visualization tools that help to identify problems. Among the most common, we can mention:
- containment of hosts;
- cloud provider limitation;
- hardware wear.
And also Stackdriver Integration with other Google Cloud data tools such as BigQuery, Cloud Pub/Sub, Cloud Storage and Cloud Database.

We only have 1 application using DX APM, while most of other applications are instrumented using Dynatrace. Dynatrace provides a better monitoring and instrumentation for applications. The required effort to setup monitoring capability using DX APM is way more work compared to Dynatrace, also the amount of KPIs offered from Dynatrace is more than DX APM.

Return on Investment
Broadcom
  • Introscope is deeply utilized within the organization. However, CEM and Team Center not as much. Those that use one piece don't generally use the others. Partially because of the curve in learning how to use the consoles effectively.
  • reporting is pretty well configured and easy to setup if you know how to use the tools. So this can be easy to use and takes less time to configure for the different groups within the organization.
