Overall Satisfaction with AppDynamics

We have an internet banking platform with a quite complex architecture that involves different dev and ops teams. Our performance and stability requirements are high. We needed to modernize the way we monitor the platform and improve our support SLA. AppDynamics gave us a brand new centralized vision of our environment. We now monitor the platform, detect slowness, and get more accurate information quicker. AppDynamics is used by all of our IT teams.
  • Complete visual application monitoring--slowness, bottlenecks, crashes...
  • Provides a lot of dashboards and insights on platform behavior
  • Non-intrusive monitoring on existing deployments
  • Gives a lot of very accurate data
  • Very expensive licensing policy
  • Quite confusing and complex interface (with a quite tough learning curve)
  • Real-time performance and activity monitoring
  • Real-time performance and crashes alerts
  • Code-level visibility for troubleshooting
  • Platform network map, showing traffic, slowdowns, and bottlenecks
  • Requests-level data capture
  • Platform map drilldown capabilities and code-level visibility helped us to find the root cause of problems faster
  • Threshold alerts made proactive problem handling easier
  • Data capture module helped us to link technical data with business data and support customers far more efficiently
AppDynamics perfectly does the job and does more. We choose it after a successful POC that showed its efficiency from the trenches.

Did implementation of AppDynamics go as expected?


Would you buy AppDynamics again?


Very useful if you want to monitor multi-server complex architectures involving different technologies and IT teams. Very useful to proactively detect or prevent slowness on load increase. I think AppDynamics would be far less appropriate for small companies or "simple" software, or when you have to deal with it alone (without support for setup, learning, features activation, and troubleshooting).
