ManageEngine OpManager

Great for managing infrastructure on the same LAN. Does not work to monitor Azure/AWS metrics.

SolarWinds AppOptics

With the current set of features, AppOptics is a great option for startups that do not depend on downstream external services for their product. I have already recommended it to some friends working at other startups. I am rating it 8/10 instead of 10/10 because its monitoring of downstream services is inadequate. In our company, we have a monolithic application. So, we don't have an opinion on how it would operate in a service-oriented architecture.

Pros

ManageEngine OpManager

  • Central Console for top-down view.
  • Custom alerts to alert me of high-traffic usage.
  • Custom reports for management.
Mike Maner | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds AppOptics

  • Easy to integrate with an application stack. Supports many. In my case, I just need the AppOptics client and client key to start integration with my application stack.
  • Provide real-time metrics like DB connection, query analysis, latency in API calls and other connections, response codes for various API's, etc.
  • We can also set thresholds based on use-cases and set up the alerts and publish one across various suitable channels.

Cons

ManageEngine OpManager

  • Some legacy products is complicated to add.
  • They need to study about MIB files to customize certain values.
  • Network knowledge is needed to configure the SNMP on the routers and configure the server where the Opmanager will be so that it can reach all your networks.
Daniel J. Canto Bonilla | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds AppOptics

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

ManageEngine OpManager

The other competing products in functionality stack up pretty good but pricing is always a lot higher for what you get with the other solutions for small/medium sized companies use.
Ray Koch | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds AppOptics

SolarWinds AppOptics serves a specific use case for us--diving down on the application layer to identify root causes of latency. It does not offer the same use case as SignalFx, which offers metrics for the overall service and integration for custom metrics. AppOptics also does not keep logs of your service or enable searches on them like Kibana. It serves a different use case than the products listed above.

Daniel J. Canto Bonilla | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds AppOptics

  • Faster Troubleshooting of issues in the infrastructure or our application, which helped us reduce downtime
  • Helped us identify resource bottlenecks, which in turn, helped reduce our overall footprint and operational costs.
  • It enables us to continuously monitor our application and alert us. This has allowed us to focus on product development without worrying about any underlying, hidden issues.
