It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

SolarWinds AppOptics

SolarWinds AppOptics is a fit tool for monitoring modern technologies such as Cloud Services (AWs, Azure), Micro Services, SaaS solution - which would not require on-premises like attention for Maintenance, Patching etc, and hence no un-necessary downtime since it is being managed by Vendor itself. It also helps in application tracing like an APM 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.

AppOptics has performed well for all of the major functions we have needed it for. Especially when it comes to tracking down response time issues and researching app performance for different pages and different times of day we have been able to do everything we need to. We know there are some more advanced features that could help us in more niche areas, but haven't had the time to delve deeper into using or setting them up.

We cannot have any complaints regarding support provided for our deployments by germain CRT. We had some worries that with such big ecosystems of plugins issues are imminent, but it really only takes a few minutes for you to add a new plugin and germain CRT support team is happy to do it for you.

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

germain CRT

germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.

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.
