What do you like best?

Transaction snapshot drill down gives very detailed insight of the transaction that was slow or in error, the call graphs provide the quickest view of an transaction path with time taken at each node and time taken between nodes.

The upsides are baseline comparison against daily/weekly/monthly trends.

Custom dashboards caters the needs of all the teams across every level in our organization.

Violations and Anomalies section is much helpful to view all violations with severity and timeline when we have a major disruption Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

AppD must colloborate with SAP and enable to monitor SAP Cloud Applications.

The downsides are sometimes AppD gave incorrect CPU utilization which then needed fine tuning.

It caused 15 minutes disruption to our business when the AppD machine agents were reconfigured during business hours.

During the troubleshooting underlying error showed more than 90% of the time consumed by AppD agent which was later corrected.

Real time user monitoring browser plugin for SAP cloud applications was causing other issues which prevented the SAP application to work as expected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

AppD helped to identify that the F5 load balancers were distributing more load to only 2 nodes and remaining 4 nodes were underutilized.

Identified a long running query in the database which lead the developer to identify a code issue by Wipro which caused the user to wait for almost 2 minutes on a C4C screen.

It highlighted the violation by a batch program which was processing 10 times more than the usual records.

Whenever a major disruption is reported by users, it reflected the exact user experience, the timeline and the number of slow/error transactions match with user report Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

AppDynamics self discovery made it useful soon after installation. The Flowmaps is awesome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When configuring for multiple regions running identical software products, AppDynamics it time consuming (and boring) to configure all applications the same. This applies to dashboards, as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be sure to know what you want. It can be costly to add additional features after the agreement has been reached.

Dedicate staff to the install and administration.

Take classes and/or sign-up for consulting time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

On the IT side, AppDynamics provides the quickest notification, sometimes less than 5 minutes) of an issue. Also, also with the flowmaps, one can quickly see if there are any warnings or issues starting or continuing. On the development side, the AppDynamics call stack output is useful in debugging issues.

Benefits - faster time of notification, which leads to faster time to recovery. Also, new releases can be compared with baselines to see if there is any positive or negative impacts due to the release. Paired with Splunk, the duo provides nearly all of our monitoring needs.

What do you like best?

It is one of the best tools for monitoring applications(Eg. Java App). Easy to check the error details when an error encountered. Alerts can be configured (Eg. Whenever a particular functionality, payment page takes time to load, immediately mails will be triggered if configured, which helps further to investigate the issue asap). It offers many other functionalities. I can see its one of the great tools available for application monitoring. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing as of now. It has great features, however I should admit the fact that I didn't explore much so I haven't find any cons yet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To check the errors in Production environment. In an enterprise application, it is not possible to monitor the app manually, so with the help of the tool we will be knowing as and when any error occurs which is helpful in resolving issues as and when occured.

Alerts configuration when a page is slow, on configurations we get mails so we will get to know when exactly the app is slow which further helps to improve scalability. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Its fast, its easy to understand and here is where many competitors fail. No likes to work with a tool that is slow or that we cant explain or navigate in. All layers are included like databases, network, enduser, apllication, logs, docker etc. And it gives results. At Volvocars we almost completely eliminated incidents by working proactivly with Appdynamcs. No other tool proved such value in the warroms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. Trying to think hard but cant come up with anything i dislike. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Almost completely eliminated downtime. We didnt have less issues. They all had to be worked out as normal. They didnt stop occuring. But doing it before the incident is the whole point. Finding it in an early stage when problem is small or in dev/qa. Many times we easily optimised applications to be twice as fast. The few incidents we couldnt prevent had a decreased resolutiontime from normal 6hrs to 1 hr in average. Sometimes minutes. Im not working in operations anywhere without appdynamics from now on.

What do you like best?

The Best part is getting everything visualised in graph and easy to understand with the help of the baseline that we define according to the different application and requirement, also those can be changed anytime with the requirement to meet the expectations. Also we can set up the alerts and can configure to receive them from different channels which helps us to know if there is any issue in any application before hand. Other then above in AppDynamics we can build different dashboard according to our requirement which use to be of great use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The think i would say i don't like in appdynamics is , it don't show the complete logs like the look splunk shows us, for proper log analysis we have to login to servers or use splunk if we have that in place , that is the major area if that can be addressed by Appdynamics it will be super. There can be more scope in improvement with terms to Controller, we have experience were we have faced the issue with AppDynamics controllers and agents and it doesn't show traffic or data, there it create the panic situation for support team Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

One of best Monitoring tool available in the market i would say, i help very much to fulfil the purpose that's the most important so would surely recommend it to others. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We majorly use appdynamics for monitoring infra response, errors, and all related to infra like CPU utilisation thread consumption and all, and it help us to identify and mitigate the issue before hand so it would not impact to our end customers Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The tool has a wealth of features, though i find the End User Monitoring alongside the BizIQ really powerful and gives great insights as to the customers experience. AppDynamics continue to grow and have some exciting integrations such as the acquisition of ThousandEyes network monitoring. This tool keeps getting better and the support from the Customer success programs has really helped us get ROI Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not much to say hear. It is a bit pricey but it is a high end product and provides a high level of monitoring Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To have one tool that covers many aspects of monitoring which AppDynamics does flawlessly. The capabilities of AppDynamics have helped us move to a more pro-active monitoring model. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

1) Convenient UI

2) Comprehensive documentation and friendly user groups + support

3) Metrics + Alerts - amazing functionality to keep eye on all applications friction parts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1) Does not allow grouping in Analytics by custom fields

2) Does not store ADQL in Analytics in URL, you can lose your query in case of simple QL grammar error (NewRelic is more duligent for this case)

3) Some anarchy on capturing parameters (may allow to have different UserId and UserID columns which makes hard to group data in future) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1. Dashboarding and Reporting with Dash Studio give greater insights

2. Database insight( DB Monitoring) gives an application team a transparency

3. Root cause Analysis /Anomaly detection( SAAS only)

4. Application Flow maps and Transaction Score give a good visibility

5. Custom Schema in Analytics

6. Auto Baseline concept Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1. Appd doesn't have any roadmap to add AI/ML and many more capabilities to on-premise setup which they already have in SAAS from years.

2. Appd license model is very difficult to understand and then if we want to manage per application, it is very difficult.

3. Appd Synthetic is having many flaws - stability, manage PSA health, support etc, raise my enhancement but no luck

4. Appd DB events are moving to Analytics even it is there in Event service cluster which restrict us in proactive alerting, reporting and analysis.

5. Appd doesn't have any integration or way to analysis threads and provide the root cause at thread level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommends to have a business requirement listed down and then select the tool. For my organization use case , Appd suits best as we have done POC with Dynatrace, appd and NEw-Relic , from all the three Appd scored highest.

Use SAAS for better AIOPs feature and being ahead in technology and solutioning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Solved various issue in the below direction

a. Faster RCA - provided the visibility the issue is around Infra, Application, DB or user experience

b. Prevent P0,P1 - prevented P0 *P1 by proactive anomaly detection using baseline

c. End user productivity - By increasing end user performance by improving on error and heavy call/methods.

d. Automation - Using the auto remediation and auto thread dump collections

e. KPIs - Earlier their was no way to measure the Service health, now with appd, we have such KPIs.

f. Management Dashboard - With the help of analytics/metric, we can present management related values or cost which help them to take decision faster. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

While the APM component is very mature, the EUM tool adds a critical aspect that we have really been missing - the visibility into network errors, app crashes, and other client side issues, which provide a much more compelling story during incident triage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The OnPrem EUM product has had a lot of scalability issues handling our large customer base. Features for the OnPrem version lag far behind the SAS offering when compared to other OnPrem vendors. Responsiveness and effectiveness of the support resources for the EUM product have been inconsistent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EUM allows us to detect network problems, which in the past, we could only infer. This has been extremely helpful when compelling vendors to address connectivity issues in their networks. Similarly - EUM paints a much clearer picture of the impact to clients from server-side performance issues, many of which seem minor to app developers, but may cause seconds of delay for customers. Visibility is the most critical aspect for solving any problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Data representation based on different views is one of the best feature.

For an example if you a developer the granularity of telimetry data and metrics you can represent for a developer mind set is a huge advantage. On the other side if you are a business person rather going technical level of granularity, the way the business important data as in Business transactions been presented in an understanding manner is a huge benifict. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Appdynamics is an agent based solution for different monitoring scopes. In modern world with devOps mindset,in multi tenant scenario, integrating agent installation with the custom configuration in devOps generic pipelines is hard.

There is a reason for that, that is because to give the tenants to do customisation. But they can be done only during installation not after. So to have a generic pipeline for installtion covering everything is hard to keep up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

AppD is one of the market leaders in APM industry in Gartenr Quodrant reviews,

Plus the benificts you get as a user is massive per my personal experience. Highly recommended for enterprises to use AppD as the main Monitoring tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

appdynamics is a comprehensive monitoring tool for traditional world. It has a lot to offer. It reduces timet to identify of root causes of problems . Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

appdynamics is not for cloud native world. we had a poc with appdynamics for our kubernetes environment. It was terribly time consuming to implement on kubernetes. Appdynamics is not aware of variations of kubernetes in technical details. There are many missing parts like end to end observability. Ability to create custom dashboards for kubernetes services is pretty poor. All the offerings are perfect in paper but we were not able to see them on real world. We were unable to see a full picture of our environment with end to end point of view, full stack. We were not able to see underlying infrastructure , the VMs of kubernetes. It's a full-time job for one or more people to get trained, perform integration, maintain, and analyze output from AppDynamics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please work with a good knowledgable partner or directly with appdynamics. AppDynamics offers lots of functionality, but doesn't implement any one of the features particularly well. Other APM solutions suffer from similar problems. Consider if you need a more specialized tool or custom solution to solve a specific issue you're having. Make sure that the way AppDynamics expects a centralized team to handle operations matches your organizational structure.

Detailed breakdown of a transaction performance.It can zero in on piece of code to piece of sql causing performance bottleneck.

Using appdynamics we were able to pin point even issue in our web server which were otherwise being thought to be an application issue

Pictorial representation of server health,jmx charts, transaction wise performance data made easy for us to explain issues to non technical persons easily

Ease of integration

One can also pin point JavaScript performance issues using End User experience Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While finding out issues in application stack to go to the root cause takes time and patience

In event of GC we have found that the server shows not available in dashboard which is correct but post GC event it should change the server availability in green which is not the case though we have found the server is processing request Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The dashboards are the best thing in AppD. It gives a very clear view of what is going on in your infrastructure and application landscape. Drill down from infrastructure to the lowest level application classes with the right implementation.

It does not slow down your business applications.

The licensing model is good too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

AppD needs a large amount of storage and it adds up to the cost of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of the infrastructure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use AppD for Application and Infrastructure monitoring. It has helped us in determining the stability of infrastructure and robustness of our application code. We were able to identify which part of our code was mostly used and we could prioritise the optimisation of that piece of code. It also helped us determine which business opportunity was most used by our customers and thereby giving us insights of what contributes best to the bottom line of the organisation.
