Infrastructure and Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

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.
Our application has millions of unique visitors every day. It's critical for us to render data as fast as possible to the end-user. Hence, we use the application to optimize the flow, remove unnecessary calls, and optimize the queries, thus leading to a smaller response time by the application.
The user experience has been fantastic. We benefit a lot from the trace-level root cause. This helps us narrow down the issue in the application and optimize/fix the issue.
  • SolarWinds AppOptics (formerly Librato)
In our team, we use AppOptics extensively. It has helped the team understand how to detect bottlenecks, which is very useful to optimize/fix the problem. It saves a lot of time in debugging, which would be the alternative in case we didn't use AppOptics.
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.
