Infrastructure and Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds AppOptics

I mostly use AppOptics to monitor our website performances, response time, status code, etc. How is the loading time distributed between servers, databases, and caches? Is one of our services spiking for some reason? We use it to focus our attention on pages that need to be optimized to improve the user experience. It also helps us to focus on what needs to be optimized.
  • Monitoring services.
  • Detect service failures.
  • Helps pinpoint problems in our website.
  • The only thing that I would add is the possibility to display every single query our servers receive to eventually analyze them and query through them. We could also generate nice visualizations from that. Right now I believe we can only see averages.
  • Allows us to detect failures really quick.
  • Allows us to really focus on what's important to optimize our website.
AppOptics is way more user friendly than Kibana. When you first log in to AppOptics, you have the information you need very easily while Kibana takes a lot of learning before getting your first results. Kibana almosts requires the help of developers and technicians to learn how to use it and setting it up.
Here is one scenario where AppOptics is well suited: when we deploy a new release. When you work on big projects, it is sometimes hard to evaluate all the impacts that our new release will have on our production environment. AppOptics allows us to monitor very easily the release behavior on production. Another scenario: when we'd like to optimize our website. AppOptics shows us what page is the most used and which one takes the most time to load and how the loading time is distributed between servers, database, and cache. That is very useful to focus our efforts on what's is important for our users.

As a developer I can only recommend the use of AppOptics. I wasn't included in the decision process to purchase AppOptics, but now that I've used it, I can only recommend it to everyone.
