Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds AppOptics
It's being used by the department to detect performance issues like response time in the application. This helps us detect the bottlenecks in our application. This includes remote calls, database queries, cache calls. It also helps us determine the different layers in a request made. This helps in identifying ones that can be removed.
- Average response time.
- Average request rate.
- Tracing different layers in a request.
- Detection of slow queries.
- More data can be added, however, it could also be that we haven't set it up fully.
- Faster page response times.
- Optimization of database queries.
- Removal of all unnecessary cache calls.
It was a decision made based on our requirements. We felt like AppOptics gave us what we need precisely. When we tried it out, we were satisfied with the performance. It didn't compare to the rest in the market.
It is best for the detection of bottle necks in the application. It gives an idea of the different layers the application spends time in. The average response time and request rate give us a rough idea of what we are doing. Transaction details help in determining finer points in the application. It could do better with a lot of server performance stats as well. Maybe we need to set it up.
