AppDynamics Feature Reviews

Shaun D Simmons

Skeptical at first and now speechless and client ecstatic!

2018-04-29

In a digital economy now and more people embracing the "cloud", which comes at a premium......it's great to be able to "see" in real time not only your infrastructure performance but the performance of the users and the apps and allows you know EXACTLY where the change is needed.

Pros

What sold me was the agentless monitoring of the databases so we could actully see in real time what days/times we needed to apply additional CPU resources.

Cons

I guess I really can't state a "plausible" con......the software goes above and beyond what we had envisioned and actually made everyone's duties easier to complete which we were able to turn reports and analytics around quicker.......so if I had to complain about something.....maybe the price???

Integration with load runner

Pros

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

Cons

Extra license cost for the database monitoring can be more structured

Changed the way we do monitoring, shrunk our MTTR, and literally is making IT fun again.

2017-12-02

Pros

* Autodiscovery of application topology, based on real user traffic * Baselining of every single metric you throw at it * Easy to use API * Customizable extensions * Great SaaS support, performance and uptime * Responsive Support team * Responsive Extension dev team * Facilitates business, dev and ops communication * Agents have low CPU overhead compared to other agent-based products we've tried RUM, Synthetics, Mobile, Network and Browser Analytics make this a well rounded tool.

Cons

There is currently no automated agent management/upgrades for every agent type (currently the Universal Agent supports Java, expanding to .NET and machine agents in the future).

Its a great tool to capture the performance

2017-06-27

performance metrics, alerting and notifications

Pros

auto detection of environment connectivity, I don't have to do anything to configure my connection patterns which is amazing

Cons

none as of now, the only thing I could think is the cost, other than that we should check on integration with ticketing tools

Free Lite Version covers many tasks

2012-08-14

One negative point that I can see is that the Lite version records data from only the last two hours, that´s not enough.

Utilize AppDynamics to monitoring PROD Java applications

2018-02-08

Able to see JVM memory usage, garbage collection, JVM error, and applications error per tier to associated systems.

Pros

Easy to install, configure, and manage.

Cons

Nothing to do not like it. Sometimes could be difficult to troubleshoot it if they agent cannot start with JVM process.
