Slow Java code? Get end-to-end visibility and code-level diagnostics for your Java application with AppDynamics. With AppDynamics, operations teams can quickly find and troubleshoot performance bottlenecks in their Java applications, and Java developers can find out how their code performs in production.
Benefits of using AppDynamics over free Java profilers:
Pro-actively alert JVM health and performance issues
Detect and Resolve SQL and NoSQL latency
Troubleshoot and find root cause of application performance issues in minutes
Monitor MBean metrics in real-time
Lower Overhead than Java Profiling Tools
AppDynamics runs in production with less than 2% overhead on the application, which means you can leave it on all the time without worrying about impacting your end users. Most Java profilers introduce significant overhead into an application, which is unacceptable for a production environment. As a result, many organizations only use Java profiling tools when a crisis is occurring, and have no visibility into the application when it's performing normally.
Business Transaction Monitoring
Unlike free Java profilers, AppDynamics helps you understand your application as your end users experience it: through Business Transactions. By grouping user requests into Business Transactions, AppDynamics helps dev and ops teams identify and prioritize the performance bottlenecks that are affecting their end users the most. No Java profiling tools are able to provide Business Transaction context for bottlenecks, which makes it more difficult to quickly identify and prioritize problems.
Troubleshoot Java Code Latency in Minutes
AppDynamics provides full visibility into Java code execution as business transactions and requests are processed by the JVM. This allows you to isolate latency and pinpoint its root cause in minutes, making Java performance tuning easier than ever.
“With AppDynamics, you just load the program, it injects into the Java code, you restart the server, and it’s working.”
- Richard Rothschild, Senior Director of IT, TiVo
AppDynamics provides Java profiling capabilities for all JVMs and application servers with Java 1.5 and above. This includes full framework and protocol support to give you as much visibility into your application as any free Java profiler.

We engaged the AppDynamics Enablement Team and within a week we found over a dozen major defects that were affecting the performance and stability of our products. Great team, great enablement.
Bob Hartley, Family Search, Development Manager
We're enthusiastic with the support we received from the AppDynamics training team. They helped us gain critical visibility into our applications that's helped us make better architectural and design decisions.

Ask any developer to name a few common performance bottlenecks and 99.9% of them will say "the database" as their first answer. Ask a DBA the same question and 99.9% of them will respond "crappy application code." If we put aside the mutual love between each party, it’s actually worth looking at...
I’ve been looking into a lot of different statistical methods and algorithms lately and one particularly interesting model is Apdex. If you haven’t heard of it yet, Apdex has been adopted by many companies that sell monitoring software. The latest Apdex specification (v1.1) was released on January...
