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: Some flex calls cannot be captured with the appdynamics so cannot be used for the flex coded developed applications. Extra license cost for the database monitoring can be more structured

Overall: Integration with load runner

Its a great tool to capture the performance

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

Overall: performance metrics, alerting and notifications

AppDynamics has saved us so much time!

Pros: Deep, useful analysis of performance of applications. Makes for quick troubleshooting.

Cons: It's not user friendly at all. And instrumentation of non-web apps is a slow painful process.

Overall: It's not the easiest APM out there to use by far. And manually instrumenting non-web software is the pits. But it pays off in droves. We've cut support times by 80%+. Before when we had issues, it involved a lot of trial and error, randomly looking at diff server logs, and manual hunting for problems. Now we know right where to start, and most of the time, even know what exactly is causing the issue. Root cause analysis is quick and easy. Database traces, full cross-app traces, it's all there now and it works amazingly. Now they just need to make it easier to use, because anyone outside of IT is instantly lost.

Recommendations to other buyers: Hope that citrix doesn't screw it up like they do everything else they buy.

Fantastic Tool

Comments: Pretty new to this tool, but its already impressed me with the auto detection of nodes.
still exploring for more options.. but this tool could be one stop for all monitoring

Free Lite Version covers many tasks

Comments: The freemium version of AppDynamics offers many useful tasks for smaller websites. I think to a certain extend it can also be useful for larger ones. Right now, I am using the free version and I think I can get along with that for some time. That´s great!!! One negative point that I can see is that the Lite version records data from only the last two hours, that´s not enough.
