  • Get full call-stack traces
  • Easy to use
  • Running in minutes

Monitor your Application Topology

AppDynamics auto-discovers and maps the application tiers in your .NET environment, giving you a breakdown of where response time is spent in your application. This means you see a high level view of what your application looks like with respect to application tiers like LDAP, 3rd party web services, databases, NoSQL data stores, caches and Message Buses.

Monitor Your Business Transactions

Rather than see raw URL or service requests in your application, AppDynamics is able to classify these entities with business context so you can understand the business activity which flows through your application and IIS server. This monitoring perspective allows you to track response time, Service levels and throughput of your business transactions, as well as drill down to their code execution.

Find Bottlenecks in Your Application Code

When you identify a slow application request or business transaction you can drill down to see individual executions known as snapshots. In a single click, you can view the full code execution call stack of a business transaction and pin-point the associated latency across every class, method and interface that was invoked. Meaning you get full visibility of where time was spent in the IIS server and code to help you resolve any bottlenecks.

Customer Success

"With AppDynamics' support for .NET, we can now trace transactions that span our Java and .NET application tiers. We've tried other tools to watch our applications, but AppDynamics is the first one that enables eCollege to monitor transaction performance across technology stacks with business context. These capabilities have been key for us to respond to new demands on our application."

- Jim Wyatt, Systems Architect at Pearson eCollege.
