Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds AppOptics
It is used by both DevOps and by Tech Support. We use it to track down source code-level issues and to monitor response time and service level stats.
- Faster troubleshooting when it works.
- Additional labor to keep up with documentation and backward compatibility breakages (in Python).
- Grafana has been implemented to deal with the shortcomings of AppOptic's statistical abilities.
Any web app that needs distributed tracing and transaction monitoring is well suited for this product. Python support for Gunicorn is good. Python support for celery tasks has been broken for some time. Releases of the Python language binding are infrequent. There is no GitLab or GitHub project to submit tickets to which would help with issue tracking for users.
