Free .NET Monitoring

There weren’t any free tools for monitoring .NET applications—until now. AppDynamics Lite is the first .NET-specific tool designed to help with web application performance.

Monitor your Application Topology

AppDynamics Lite 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 Lite 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.

Monitor Slow SQL

AppDynamics Lite can also detect SQL statement and give full visibility into SQL text. It also includes support for all relational databases like Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Sybase and DB2.



Pro-Active Alerting

With AppDynamics Lite you can now configure alerts on your application, business transactions or CLR performance. This allows you to manage application performance proactively so you get notified as soon as any problems start to occur.
