Benefits: Using AppDynamics has helped simultaneously scale the application, continuously integrate new features and deliver an optimized customer experience
Within the newly distributed architecture at VS, the front-end application was interfaced with a middle service layer that brokered communication with various database and micro-service backends. The performance of the database layer was critical in the overall application health. By using AppDynamics, the engineering team maintains a 23ms response time with the middle service layer, including communication with the database. “AppDynamics has given us insight that has enabled us to go in and rewrite multiple queries throughout the application to improve performance,” says King, “AppDynamics had an immediate impact on our database layer. With the insight we gained, we optimized our middle service layer to maintain an average 23ms response time even with the database calls“.
