- Cloud Service Monitoring
- New Technologies Monitoring such as Containers Docker
- GCP is not Supported
- Oracle is not Supported
- No Integration available with Service Now
- Request tracing with code profiling.
- Automated alerting on latency and response codes for each API.
- Low resource overhead while collecting data from our application servers.
- Highly performant dashboard that enables us to make progress rapidly.
- Very resilient. We have not seen a downtime in their service in the entire year that we have used them.
- Monitoring and alerting for downstream services can be improved significantly.
- They can make it easier and faster to setup alerts for the infrastructure and application.
- They should support SSO login.
- Interactive graph
- Monitoring services.
- Detect service failures.
- Helps pinpoint problems in our website.
- 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.
- Compares performance to previous day/week.
- Shows detail of traced requests including DB queries and cache calls.
- Performs quickly and has little lag time between reported detail.
- Report filtering could be more powerful.
- Date comparison options like 4 weeks ago instead of 1 month.
- SolarWinds AppOptics has an easy to use and fast interface. Thus, you can use time more efficiently.
- SolarWinds AppOptics has as many details as you want. So you only display deep details when you want.
- SolarWinds AppOptics already has many plugins. So you can easily connect with your other services.
- The number of plugins should be increased.
- The number of warning methods should be increased.
- The time frame options help track peak hours and compare impact of improvements.
- The detailed breakdown of traces requests helps track down the source of slowness in applications.
- The database queries tracked help find most used tables and help decide where indexing is needed.
- The exceptions graph on the overview screen can be misleading as not all exceptions are high priority.
- Could use more customization on the overview screen. Would like to change what graphs are shown for each service.
- Application Performance Monitoring.
- DB Monitoring.
- Network Monitoring.
- API level check.
- Running application box stats.
- Consumed memory stats.
- Shows each layer of application.
- Code tracing.
- Easy to visualize where the issues are.
- Aggregate info to show problems
- Show layer by layer overview of where time is spent
- Might be related to our setup but correlating info between different apps is not possible.
- Best GUI.
- Detailed view of latencies.
- Application integration is easy.
- 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.
- It would be good if could get some sort of dynamic report generation functionality base on historical trends. The rest is good.
1) Current response code from the API.
2) Number of DB connections.
3) Queries requested from app to DB.
4) Queries that track latency.
5) Failing APIs.
- Markers: Drill down into specific logical blocks of the execution timeline.
- Remote services: Possibility to track external API calls separately from the main stack.
- Alerting: Possibility to receive alerts as soon as a certain threshold was reached.
- Get to the errors from the dashboard graphs.
- Custom-selected Nth percentile.
- Auto-refresh option for close to live-monitoring.
- Average response time.
- Average request rate.
- Tracing different layers in a request.
- Detection of slow queries.
- More data can be added, however, it could also be that we haven't set it up fully.
- Compact monitoring
- Tracking of transactions, requests, etc.
- Its simplicity of usage. Less is more.
- Its SMS gateway for notification, so we don't need to use a third party.
- On Infrastructure page, select multiple choices and see Host details for all of them
- Better organization of metrics
- Simple installation and configuration
- Easy to use UI
- Good value
- Many integrations with third-party software
- Better cluster support: identify and group all related hosts automatically based on name
- Provides default dashboards for all your services and we can create custom dashboards as well
- We can configure alerts on API response times and can configure multiple notification channels
- It tracks everything including infrastructure, database response, communication between different micro-services
- Sometimes I have faced issues while creating custom dashboards
- A few metrics do not provide accurate results
- Documentation can be improved
- Full application stack trace
- Measuring latency
- Providing historical map of calls
- It's confusing sometimes to dig into a trace, like certain levels don't have much info. AppOptics just says this level occupies 95% of the call time.
- It would be nice to have AppOptics identify if the root cause of an issue was caused by a dependency, e.g. another service it calls. It would be great to chain them together.
- Not very intuitive, if you don't know what you're doing or know what to look for.
- Distributed tracing.
- Basic hardware monitoring.
- Application transaction stats/details.
- Support for celery in Python.
- Overall better Python support.
- Backwards compatibility.
As our infra is very huge so we haven't implemented it in the whole organization. But still, we are using it for most of the critical services. Pinpointing the issues becomes very easy during production downtimes.
- Trace debugging
- Remote calls detection
- flexibility of configuration
- Linked graph of microservices can be included
- Deep insight into the ASP.NET pipeline, allowing drill-down into individual requests.
- Intuitive dashboards with the ability to slice by time give a good overview of real-world endpoint performance.
- Ability to drill into individual queries executed during the lifetime of an IIS request provide excellent intelligence for targeted optimization of SQL bottlenecks.
- Extending visualization into the asp.net processing pipeline would be really helpful - the ability to see which handler/piece of middleware did what, and when would be great.
- The ability to capture parameters for certain SQL queries - possibly based on a filter.
- The ability to describe the relationship between requests and users - so being able to see all requests submitted in a particular session (by cookie, http header value, etc) would be most useful.
- Monitoring infrastructure in production. We also use it to track AWS usage and its APM capabilities.
- Whenever there's an exception or slow performance in production we use AppOptics.
- Drilldown to slow transactions in DB or server-side code.
- General visibility of usage vs. spending on AWS.
- Quick view to usage statistics in AWS, instead of going to CloudWatch (for example, SNS messages).
- Easy to integrate.
- No need to instrument code.
- Full visibility.
- Better python instrumentation.
- Monitoring AWS lambda.
- Pinpoints the area of concern
- Provides most of the database-level details
- Good graphical presentation
- Database-level details SPID
- Provide a notepad file for longer SQL Code
- Google Chrome new window open gets stuck sometime
2) Only database queries
3) Big data queries
4) Performance tuning stored procedures. Very important when users complain about a long-running query. Queries can be sorted by the highest wait statistics and can help to know the number of requests as well.
SolarWinds AppOptics allows us to see if we are getting better or worse.
