AppDynamics Python Application Monitoring is here, bringing the full capabilities of the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform to Python applications: the real-time end-to-end visibility, the rapid and intuitive drill-down into root cause, the fast mean-time-to-resolution, the collaborative tools and more, all working toward superior application performance and user experience.

Python has grown to be widely popular among developers. For many, there’s a certain purist mindset that goes along with Python coding — one that leans toward clarity, simplicity, and directness, and that strives to create a single, most superior solution. That’s a direction that AppDynamics leans toward, too, and that shows in our APM solution for Python applications.
Deployed in just minutes, Python Monitoring quickly creates a flow map of your Python application environment. You’re able to see not just how your Python application is doing, but also how all the databases, servers, and other infrastructure that supports it are impacting its performance.

Like all the components of the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform, Python Monitoring automatically discovers application topology and dependencies, correlates and traces key business transactions, and automatically incorporates changes and updates. Because it is focused on business transactions — and not just application and infrastructure health — our Python solution can quickly identify where the hot spots and slow methods are that are impacting Python performance, wherever they occur. Through a single pane of glass, Python Application Monitoring visually depicts mobile and web user experience around the world in real time, and enables rapid drill-down to the code level for issues that are impacting users.

“In our efforts to become the world’s largest travel search site, Skyscanner has adopted agile development methods and Python programming in particular to help our IT operations scale. In fact, all our new front line services have been developed in Python, which now comprises nearly 50 percent of our application real estate,” said John Paris, service manager at Skyscanner. “Because our success is based on giving travelers instant access to every commercial flight in the world, it’s critical that we offer a seamless user experience, 24 hours a day. AppDynamics’ new APM solution for Python now gives us a single view from the traveller, into— and across— our technology stacks, giving us faster detection and analysis of issues.”

Our Python Monitoring is enterprise-class, and leverages the Application Intelligence Platform’s ability to trace transactions through highly complex and heterogeneous environments, and to scale to handle even the most massive applications.

Python Monitoring proved its mettle through its beta program and is now moving into GA with AppDynamics Summer ’15 Release (4.1). We’re happy to welcome Python teams into the AppDynamics fold, and invite you to try AppDynamics Python Monitoring for free.
