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.
The good thing about the tools is its integration with the load runner tool for performance testing. We can get the exact method and class names from the code which helps in finding the bottleneck.

Pros

It has been extremely helpful in enabling us to provide flawless products and services to our clients. It has enabled us to maintain stable and secure websites and applications.
The best part about Dynatrace is it is hosted in the cloud and the ease of use. We are able to implement our monitoring with ease.
They are both really good tools that are wonderful for getting to the core of the issue.

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.
Some of the data that I need gets lost on all of the functions. Curse of the blessing, I guess.

Cons

Every once in awhile you would receive a false alarm and end up wasting time trying to solve a problem which doesn't actually exist at the moment.
Their pricing model was an issue too and we were unable to put all our servers on their tool due to the high cost. So we were limited in what we could do.
With reports and giving exactly locations of the problems.

AppDynamics - why to choose it

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was able to keep monitoring the performance of a complex ecosystem. Thanks to the product I have a clear vision of the full architecture including the communication/flow between different services part of the solution. With the alert notification, I am able to keep monitoring the performance of the system (I can immediately understand if something is going bad after a delivery for example) and the error. Moreover I can check the status of the servers running the solution.

Pros

The possibility to go into detail in case of error. You can arrive to the line of code having the issue. At the same time, in case of bad performance, you are able to know what was happening at that moment. I would add also the alert section, it helps you to trigger alarm when it is needed. That may be fantastic for the team managing the operation / support h24. This team may be also helped by the dashboard that the users of AppDyn can create.

Cons

Setup of the Agent - there are other products doing better this part (the concept of OneAgent available for example in Dynatrace). Setup complex in case of SAP ecosystem. Real User Monitoring - the products specialized on this topic (doing only this) are better than AppDynamics. At the same time, with AppDyn you can have the monitoring end to end (from the final users to the specific server)
