Master Player just Born

Everyone used to know the names of AppDynamics and Dynatrace when it comes to APM or Application Tracing Monitoring. Since these tools were the evolver of this particular technology, I still believe that these tools are the market player. But SolarWinds AppOptics is not less, and it is becoming a good competitor with less cost and same features in the market. Also as we have seen SolarWinds Development team has done brilliant in learning the users requirement and evolving their products that make more trust in SolarWinds AppOptics.

AppOptics is way more user friendly than Kibana. When you first log in to AppOptics, you have the information you need very easily while Kibana takes a lot of learning before getting your first results. Kibana almosts requires the help of developers and technicians to learn how to use it and setting it up.

AppOptics provides us visibility of the overall system. Slack helps us to keep the communication better among our collegues. Sentry One is also being used to dive deeper into SQL queries performance tuning. SolarWinds AppOptics clearly displays the flow of information in scripts. This is definitely an advantage to the organization identifying where the problem is--that's what AppOptics does.

As an early-stage startup, we evaluated the different options on the following parameters:
  1. Functionality
  2. Monitoring overhead
  3. Cost
  4. Easy-to-use dashboard
AppOptics had most of the features that we needed and offered their services at a reasonable price that made sense for us. While CloudWatch provided a lot of the required functionality, we needed to spend a lot of time configuring it as per our needs.

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.

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.

We analyzed a number of alternatives to AppOptics, but none combined strong performance in all of our key areas - we needed a solution which could be deployed on premise, supported multi tenant hosts, provided the ability to analyse individual requests, presented intuitive dashboards and had a licensing model we could easily account for.

Monitor your applications across many programming languages, including Java, Python, .Net and PHP. Get started quickly with auto-instrumentation. With distributed transaction tracing, trace requests through your complete infrastructure and easily visualize application bottlenecks. When you experience application latency issues, you can identify the cause in three easy steps. First, look at the average time the application takes to serve a Web request. Second, check out the transaction table's list of endpoints in the application, as well as their response time, volume, and error rate. This helps you identify the specific endpoint affecting your application. And third, use heat maps to isolate outliers and trends and drill down into traces to identify the root cause Detect your application problems faster and troubleshoot them more easily with Solarwinds AppOptics.
