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.

Sentry
[Sentry] is honestly an amazing product. It allows us to detect errors in real time complete with stack traces and any extra accompanying information the developer wants to provide in the alert. With the alerting into Slack it has allowed us to quickly triage and tag in people who need eyes on a specific issue. It would be really useful in any Saas product environment.

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.

  • Great web interface. Lots of data available in a really clean format, with filtering options and more.
  • Per-user exception tracking. User is complaining about something being broken? Look up their account ID in Sentry and you can see if they've run into any exceptions (with device information included, of course).
  • Source map uploading. Took a little while to figure this out but now we have our deploy script upload sourcemaps to Sentry on each deployment, meaning we get to see stack traces that aren't obfuscated!
  • Very generous free tier – 10,000 events per month. We're nowhere near that yet.

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.

  • The UI is overwhelming and it takes time to "digest it"
  • It would have been nice to have the ability to "group together" minor releases into one that represents a bigger release

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.

I think Sentry is far more user-friendly and has a better UI. Sentry is also a more affordable option.

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.

  • The first notice of an issue more than paid for it for the month.
  • However, it's not as useful if you aren’t doing active development.
