DX Application Performance Management (formerly CA APM, or CA Application Performance Management) is an application performance management platform designed to correlate and analyze data in real-time. DX APM supports hybrid environments and customizable failure thresholds.Great tool for app monitoring and customized dashboards!Our enterprise monitoring group is piloting CA APM for our most important applications. We have built app specific dashboards that report on the success/failure of the most commonly performed actions. We are using APM to get more accurate and useful data from our most heavily used applications.,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.,The product was overly complex to set up and required a lot of interaction from CA and third-party resources. Make sure you have the appropriate amount of vendor services when you implement the tool. Support/documentation is also not as available as other products we have used in the past. The user community is not quite as strong either. Authentication setup was difficult also and took lots of troubleshooting and vendor help to set up.,8,APM has allowed us to customize a dashboard view for each specific application. This allows for unique monitoring of top functions and unique alerts. It is awesome for this use. APM allows us better data and faster alerting compared to previous products. We moved away from another product because it was not reporting on problems accurately. Once set up, APM requires little management and overhead time. The setup can be somewhat time consuming, but once setup we see no issues,Dynatrace Application Monitoring,LANDesk Service Desk, MS SharePoint, Microsoft Office 2016, RSA ArcherHere you go CA Wily Customer Experience Manager in my wayCA Wily identifies the potential performance problems by analyzing the user transactions when we do performance testing of scalable web apps and thus allows the organization to understand and respond to the end user, which is within organization. It addresses all the performance issues in the configuration of middle ware architecture like connections to the database, active number of threads in the application server, heap usage and memory leak issues.,Heap Consumption in the Application servers and its traces throughout the test scenarios. Active number of database connections from application server to the database server. It provides the CPU usage in the JVM and also provides if all the instances of application server are having load while running the test on the load balancing server. Traces the active number of threads in each node of application server.,To kill the thread explicitly in the server as per our need. To explicitly invoke the garbage collection so as to monitor the load as per our desire. Sampling frequency to be reduced to get more deterministic of some counters. Determine the first response byte from the server.,8,One APM solution can manage application systems distributed across many data centers, ones you own, and ones that you do not. The APM solution simply follows your application around. If you use VMware vMotion to move a VM that contains a Java application, the APM solution simply adjusts. You benefit from the combination of the hosted back end and the Agile development practices of the APM vendor. If the APM vendor only has to enhance and maintain one copy of the back end, that back end can be evolved much more quickly than if the vendor has to ship software to customers and then support multiple back releases. So with an APM as a Service offering, the value of the offering simply improves over time at a faster rate than with on premise software. We do not have to install and maintain an application system and its associated middleware and databases in order to manage your applications. There is only one back end and it is managed by the vendor.,,Dynatrace, HP SiteScope, AppDynamicsCA APM is a StandardMy organization primarily utilizes CA APM to track the performance of all of our in house java web applications and websites. We us it to gather performance metrics from an Dev App prospective to better understand how our sites and applications are being utilized. So we as a company know what our goals and progress moving forward should be.,Introscope does a good job of tracking performance of java jvm applications. CEM does a good job of creating the reports that can be used to track web trends. Team Center can quickly map out the applications and pin point possible issues and gaps within the monitoring.,There is a steep learning curve with the tool which can make it at times daunting to use. APM can at times be fickle with what it can and cannot track as far as performance metrics go. Other than Team Center, the rest of the pieces of the tool aren't as intuitive and require more time to instrument.,6,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.,AppDynamics,System Center Operations Manager, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor, Site24x7Business Critical Application MonitoringWe have recommended CA APM to other companies. CA APM has been implemented and supported in my current project for the past 4 years. It is used in banking, POS and HR solutions for the complete project (whole organisation) and not for any specific department. It does address most of our business requirements.,CA APM supports .Net and Java applications which are the strong areas of CA APM. It does very well in banking solutions where we are able to meet our business requirements.,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.,6,Based on my current project experience, I would say ROI is okay and not as per my expectations as it has not been able to meet the complete business requirements.,CA Unified Infrastructure Management, CA Client Automation, CA eHealth

  • Authentication setup was difficult also and took lots of troubleshooting and vendor help to set up.
We use APM for application-specific monitoring, initially our high priority apps that are used most heavily. The product is flexible and customizable to set up specific monitoring on each application and alert criteria/thresholds. We have used other tools and considered alternatives, but APM shines in this area.

It addresses all the performance issues in the configuration of middle ware architecture like connections to the database, active number of threads in the application server, heap usage and memory leak issues.
  • Heap Consumption in the Application servers and its traces throughout the test scenarios.
  • Active number of database connections from application server to the database server.

  • To kill the thread explicitly in the server as per our need.
  • To explicitly invoke the garbage collection so as to monitor the load as per our desire.
  • Sampling frequency to be reduced to get more deterministic of some counters.
  • Determine the first response byte from the server.
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.

I think it does a good job monitoring JVM's but there are other tools that seem easier to use and instrument for .net based applications. Now that all three tools are within the same suite. Hopefully there will be a better console that merges them into one cohesive monitoring application in future releases.

CA APM is well suited for Java and .Net technologies but needs to come out of boundaries and support other technologies like non (Java and .Net), SAP solutions etc...In our environment, the tool is not able to meet the 100% requirement as asked by RFP. Maybe you can say it is able to meet 70% of our requirements.
