Immediately knew we needed it

Reviewed 6 years ago

We had been searching for a good APM solution for a better price than the goldmines others were charging for too few features. We found Stackify and immediately knew that it was the right fit for us. It was very EASY to get useful data right away with a minimum of knowledge of the Stackify product.

Pros

Data is easily visually consumable. Traces make it easy to tell what calls are problematic.

Cons

Averaging data over a time period. For example, I want to know what the Average CPU or RAM usage is for a certain time period and not just see a graph and guess the average. Also, better delineation between server and webapp monitors (why do each share some fields?). Finally, need the ability to apply more than one monitor to a server or webapp.

Best in Market - In Budget - Gives In-depth insight of your application

Reviewed 5 years ago

Performance and Error monitoring of application on different servers. We include both web applications and APIs as well.

Pros

There are a lot of features that one can like about STACKIFY. To begin with, we have alerts that can be setup when you cross the threshold value for a particular variable that you are concerned about. You have a fancy dashboard which gives you a good idea of what is happening around with your application. The other good thing is the segregation of alerts into three parts - warning alert, critical alert and outage alert. We have a variety of filters given in the tool making it easier for the user to get to the issue without wasting much time - Filter by error, Filter by logs, filter by APM. Implementation of this tool is as easy and simple as it can be.

Cons

Dashboard is something that can still be improved and make more detail oriented. Slow SQL Queries can be more drilled down to get to the root level as to which query is taking more time.

Quick error resolution

Reviewed 6 years ago

was a long time customer of a competitor's tool since early 2013 and thought I was happy with what I was getting. I cannot say that price wasn't a consideration in my decision but I read quite a few positive reviews and after reading one that went something like "...in just a couple days of installing Stackify we found an error on our site we didn't even know was occurring previously..." it was decided...

Pros

Quick error resolution, detailed error from exceptions, fantastic customer support

Cons

So far none that I have seen

Feature rich, easy to use, very cheap APM tool available in the market

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Stackify gives a complete picture of your code and the server behavior with server monitoring, errors, logs, metrics and insight which provides testers and developers with a clear idea of the performance bottlenecks. Its very cheap compared to its competitors

Cons

At this cost, you can't actually find lot of cons. It shows you in which part of the request is taking time but it does not drill down to point out the code snippet causing the issue. I am using retrace on performance test servers and not on prod

The best .NET APM tool

Reviewed 8 years ago

We were using New Relic, but it wasn't providing us the info we wanted and it was so expensive that we couldn't afford having it on all prod servers. I've been using Stackify in a .net , Azure based webapp, the app is with high traffic subscription service, and solid services is essential. In one case we were using Stackify to identify an issue that made the site slow occasionally, it was very hard to pin point the source of the problem. Once installed it was a very fast process and we identified the combination of issues that lead to this behavior. Having the log and error data as part of the detailed trace was tremendous help. And seeing all the logs recorded when an exception was thrown is a cool little feature. Personally I can watch their real-time tailing all day long.

Pros

Easy to use Simple installation In-line log and error data in trace Integration of performance management with log management Lower cost than most competitors

Cons

Need to improve their mobile support APM needed in more languages

Vendor response

Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that you managed to fix the issue fast, are you now monitoring this issue, so if it will ever come back you'll be notified about it?

Great tool to do error followup

Reviewed 6 years ago

I use the free version so I can't complain about the pricing and didn't need support up till now. I especially like the fact you can flag errors as 'resolved', 'ignore' etc. What would be helpful here is an auto update of the list when I flag one. To keep the list up-to-date, I always need to refilter it every time taking quite a bit of time (search, filter by project)...

Pros

Clean and easy to do some followup.

Cons

Some missing auto-refresh of the current list.

Great devops for Azure apps.

Reviewed 6 years ago

We were up and running with Retrace APM on our Azure App Service WebAPI within an hour (just add NuGet package, Azure Extension, and Azure App Settings w/ API Key). Insight was gained into slow running calls of our endpoint within a day's worth of data. Value seems amazing vs the other big APM out there. Go for it.

Decent idea, abysmal customer service and support

Reviewed a year ago

They are essentially no better than scammers and fraudsters, and I highly advise anyone considering this tool to look elsewhere.

Pros

Before it was aquired by Netreo, the team there were very helpful in setup and support. The pricing was also much more competitive.

Cons

The monitoring tool stopped collecting traces with no warning issued. I logged in to find Stackify non-functional. Customer support blamed me for not magically knowing that I needed to install the latest version, then refused a refund of the (now exhorbitant) monthly fees.

An awful product so far. APM doesn't stay running. Waste of money.

Reviewed 5 years ago

It was great at taking money from our budget while delivering no value.

Pros

No pros were added to this review

Cons

The APM constantly stops and requires human intervention or a support call to get running again. We started it this morning and it died in less than 15 minutes. This week is the final straw for this product in our environment. If it can't run all week without human intervention I'm pulling it from the app and we're going to stop wasting money on it.

Instant troubleshooting that helped with performance bottleneck. Run time error analysis

Pros

Quick to setup, it only requires installing agent in the servers. less overhead as it is could based, there was no need to install collector, server, etc.

Cons

It would be good to have a feature that will combine data from different apps in one view. Good to have collaborative graphs to compare data from multiple sensors

Pros

It is very easy to use, and allows us to see detailed information about what is going on in our production environment.

If I had to pick a con it would probably have to be the cost per server, it isn't unreasonable but would be more palatable at a lower cost.
