Overall Satisfaction with AppDynamics

AppDynamics was introduced to help point out any parts of our products that might not be running as smoothly or as efficiently as possible to help maintain a 100% up time of our products and provide the best possible service to our customers. AppDynamics is designed to be as user friendly as possible for people of any any level of proficiency with technology. This allows for different departments within the company to utilise AppDynamics for things from analytics to monitoring hardware to potential threats.
  • AppDynamics presents its information in an easily digestible way to allow as many people as possible to gain the benefits from it.
  • Quick and easy visualisions of problem areas.
  • The ability to delve into each problem and follow through the exact journey from start to finish.
  • The initial set up for some parts of the features could be better documented.
  • Being able to see potential chokepoints throughout all of our systems helped from day one to optimise key areas.
  • The relational diagram for each system actually shown somewhere helps identify what relies on what.
After looking at a number of different alternatives to AppDynamics its error reporting seems to be the greatest out of the lot. It tracks anything imaginable and allows for the reporting as much as you want with as much information as you want.
Errors ranging from JavaScript errors to database errors are shown within the dashboard. The only problem is that setting up the alert for all the different kinds of possible errors isn't always as straight forward as it could be. For example the JavaScript errors, a way to document and report on all of them over a set period of time should be an easy one to set up.
