Pros

It also keeps you up to date with respect to the top process classes which are consuming CPU and Memory. It is one of the best application monitoring tool.
I like the application, server and even the network flow monitoring of the application. My best part of the application feature is it drill down capability in determine root cause of an issue.
Thanks to the product I have a clear vision of the full architecture including the communication/flow between different services part of the solution.

Pros

This application monitors my data in the most efficient and easy way. The overall experience is wonderful for me and I would definitely recommend investing into this software.
Datadog is an amazing cloud monitoring solution that provides great insight and alerting for our platform.
So nice to have that event stream and subscriptions. And it's very easy to share your findings with colleagues.

Cons

Able to see JVM memory usage, garbage collection, JVM error, and applications error per tier to associated systems.
No access to get AppD DB for capturing specific things. Scenario - I want my URL or API to be send in the app d alert but there is no provisioning , i raised ticket as well, but so far no provision.
One negative point that I can see is that the Lite version records data from only the last two hours, that´s not enough.

Cons

Had similar problem with another product and they could tell me the exact lines of the config and registry that needed changing.
Very poor set of solutions for Microsoft Azure monitoring. Very hard for new users, documentation is not very straightforward, so you'll need to spend a lit of time communicationg with support.
Sometimes it is very difficult to understand the graph report and it is bit technical to use. The various metric types require a little bit of reading and understanding.
