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.

It has strength in collecting information through SSH, WMI, Telnet, SNMP, http, https, MSSQL ports (several types of DB postgresql, db2, SAP MaxDB, HANA which we must monitor).The information it extracts is very useful to us since each type of monitor gives us visibility of what happens internally in them.The truth is that the needs that we have had during these years, ManageEngine Application Manager has been able to cover them especially with business core (ERP) with monitoring of SAP Server and SAP CCMS.

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.

  • Plugin Quirks where it times out
  • Navigation through some of the screen seems a bit confusing
  • Consistency such as where license info is location between op and app manager are in different places. Better if it were consistent
  • Maintenance schedules in different locations in both Op and App manger product, needs consistency. They are all Zoho products!!

The intuitive ease of the administration interface, the new features, improvements and security fixes that are quickly integrated with frequent updates. Tuning or more detailed reports associated with attributes of services, applications or containers that help us detect certain flaws in our services. The capacity for improvements that are implemented and the ease of integrating new monitors into the product, which we need, gives us the speed and ease of preventing interruptions or events that helps us avoid.

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.

Other solutions like Microsoft EM and SCCM can be interdependent and cause all sorts of issues and additional costs. I think software should be optionally integrated and work on its own as a standalone solution. I like that ManageEngine allows for specific use of its software and not forcing users into an unneeded license or contract.

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.

  • We calculated the daily cost for the amount of services we had to maintain 24x7, 365 days a year, and we were clearly satisfied with the value.
  • The granularity or fine tuning capacity that it manages to monitor has helped us prevent loss of service and ensure that our SLAs are optimal.
  • With the user experience feature, it has given us valuable support to detect, from end users, slowdowns or events that occur in the operation.
