PHP Monitoring Solution

AppDynamics for PHP allows you to get to the bottom of performance bottlenecks in all PHP applications. With AppDynamics’ PHP monitoring solution, you can find out all call stack traces in a live production environment to quickly detect performance bottlenecks in mission-critical PHP application.

Visualize application performance in real time

With AppDynamics you can automatically detect your application architecture, application servers, remote web service as well as database calls. AppDynamics displays your architecture in the Application Flowmap, revealing the bottlenecks in your production application.

Comprehend performance the way your end users do

AppDynamics baselines your traffic into Business Transactions, unlike other PHP management solutions, bucketing and revealing how end users are affected when performance degrades. Drill down into Business Transaction and obtain associated call stack traces to identify root cause.

Trend PHP performance over time

AppDynamics’ powerful analytics engine helps understand various application performance trends and creates intuitive dashboards.

Drill down into the complete call stack

AppDynamics, unlike other PHP monitoring tools, gathers entire call stack trace for slow stalls and transactions. Performance bottlenecks also can be detected in just a matter of seconds (instead of hours) with Appdynamics.

Use performance baselines for intelligent alerting

Most PHP management tools often have alerting capabilities, but their global, static thresholds usually result in alert storms or missed developing problem in the application. With intelligent baselines, AppDynamics that ensure you never receive an unnecessary alert again. You can set up alerts on irregular performance, infrastructure or application metric for or a particular Business Transaction.

See the impact of new code releases

Appdynamics allows you to compare the performance of your applications prior to and after release of a code to know how if the new code had an impact on performance.
