Overall Satisfaction with New Relic

We use New Relic on a daily basis to monitor software application performance and server utilization. We performance test a wide range of software and need to actively monitor and assess system capacity and address any issues found. New Relic provides the capacity for us to monitor the applications live or view historical data.

New Relic is easier to login and use as it's user friendly, its full-stack capacity lets us to monitor the whole system across all the tiers. However compared to Dynatrace its deep-dive analysis capacity needs to be improved, compared to Splunk its log analysis and reporting capacity needs to be improved.

Splunk Application Performance Monitoring (APM), Dynatrace, HP BTO (formerly OpenView) Discontinued
For testing or production live monitoring purposes, it's sufficient to use New Relic for general monitoring and reporting. But for deep-dive analysis or tracking its strength needs to be further improved, and some additional features might need to be added. Alerting is good enough for our own testing activities.
