Monitoring WordPress, Drupal and other PHP applications
Monitoring WordPress, Drupal and other PHP applications has never been easier. Get a free trial of AppDynamics for PHP and you’ll be up and running with best-in-class PHP monitoring software in a matter of minutes.
Get to the root cause of performance bottlenecks in your PHP applications with AppDynamics for PHP. With AppDynamics’ PHP monitoring solution, you can drill down into call stack traces to diagnose performance bottlenecks in your mission-critical PHP application – all while running in a live production environment.
Key Features of PHP Monitoring
Business Transactions: Automatic detection, response time, calls per minute, slow, very slow, stalls
Real User Monitoring: Browser diagnostics correlated with code-level diagnostics
Change Detection: Record application change events
Application Flow Map: Visualize all dependencies of your application
Real-Time Analytics: Automatic baselining and scoring of application and transaction performance
Disributed Transaction Tracing: Our monitoring agent has advanced tag-and-follow tracing capabilities that correlate calls made from your PHP application to any JVM or .NET backend tier.
Visualize application performance in real time
AppDynamics automatically detects your application architecture, including your own application servers as well as remote web service and database calls. AppDynamics then displays your architecture in the Application Flowmap, allowing you to quickly see where the bottlenecks are in your production application.
Use performance baselines for intelligent alerting
Many PHP management tools include alerting capabilities, but their static, global thresholds often result in alert storming or, worse, missing a developing problem in the application. With AppDynamics’ intelligent baselines, you’ll never have to receive an unnecessary alert again – set up alerts to fire only on irregular performance for a particular Business Transaction, infrastructure or application metric.
See the impact of new code releases
Compare the performance of your application before and after a code release to understand how performance was affected by the new code.
Trend PHP performance over time
Use AppDynamics’ powerful analytics engine to understand application performance trends over time and create intuitive dashboards for other teams and management to watch.
