Infrastructure and Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds AppOptics

We use SolarWinds AppOptics in one project. We are providing engineering services to one US-based organization and we have integrated SolarWinds AppOptics in their application for performance monitoring. AppOptics helps us to create monitoring dashboards and configure alerts if some operation crosses the threshold response time to meet SLAs. Our project is based on the healthcare domain so real-time data is very important for this and AppOptics is useful to track database response time, communication time between two services, etc.
  • Provides default dashboards for all your services and we can create custom dashboards as well
  • We can configure alerts on API response times and can configure multiple notification channels
  • It tracks everything including infrastructure, database response, communication between different micro-services
  • Sometimes I have faced issues while creating custom dashboards
  • A few metrics do not provide accurate results
  • Documentation can be improved
  • Less downtime for application
  • We can meet SLAs with our business partners
  • Faster troubleshooting
I have not used other products but in my organization, one team is using Datadog for monitoring.

SolarWinds AppOptics is a great tool to monitor the health and performance of micro-services. Nowadays, every big organization is using distributed architecture, and application monitoring is an essential part of that. So SolarWinds AppOptics is providing almost every feature which is required to monitor a large distributed system.
