AppOptics is good for small to medium-sized organizations with less than 150 servers or less than 40 services to monitor. It performs well for this use case where people need to get an overview of application performance, and 95%ile data is okay. Somewhere every data point and every record is critical; it should be avoided.

Cons
Nastel Technologies
  • The UI needs a lot of improvements to meet today's standards while keeping the functional part highly performing as it used to be
  • Being unable to run reports through the workgroup security manager is a serious con, I think they need to consider giving it more attention
  • the auto-monitoring feature performance goes low when it's enabled during a heavy workloads, it leads to a lower/heavier performance, but during the latest update I feel it got lighter somehow.
  • They also need to give more attention to the encryption and enhance it with the latest encryption technologies

  • 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.

As far a usability is concerned for AppOptics, it is just as matter of few minutes away even if you start from scratch, as all you need to do is register on the site and you will get the URL and password. And after this all you have to do is follow the instruction, as per the configuration wizard (tool tip) within the console for various technology such as SQL, IIS, .NET

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.
