Overall Satisfaction with AppDynamics

We use it to monitor one core application. It's being used by [the] IT department, but it benefits the entire company. It simply helps us to have a completely different view of our environment. It's amazing how AppDynamics display[s] problems and different viewpoints. Better than any application that I tested before.

Pros

  • Dashboards.
  • Easy to use.
  • Quick to setup.
  • Ready to use.

Cons

  • Price.
  • Licensing options.
  • Pay per month in AWS.
  • Find what's causing trouble in our application.
  • Quick to report problems in business level.
  • No need to have specialists setting it up.
  • Quickly help to find and solve problems. You may have lots of other tools. They're great, but aren't as quick as AppDynamics, to setup and discover what's happening.
  • Perfect for small teams.
  • Negative, is, a little bit, the price and licensing options.
Data dog, it's not an APM to me, yet. It's more like a Nagios or PRTG. And New Relic, it was good. Now it's poor in setup a .Net application. AppDynamics is simply perfect in setup, usage, tips, alarms. It's really what we needed for our environment. All in a single application, and, "fast".

Yes

Would you buy AppDynamics again?

Yes

When you don't have any idea about how your environment is really working, this application will help you, for sure. When you already know your environment, but don't have more ideas of what's happening, this application is also for you. When you know your environment, already monitor, and want to have a better opinion of how your application is working, what [t] really does, how [it's] impacted by other applications, AppDynamics [is] again, your application. I didn't know any scenario, except price, that this application shouldn't work.
