AppDynamics is appropriate for today's highly distributed applications. In highly distributed applications, transaction requests execute across multiple servers. AppDynamics categorizes all activities in your distributed JVM web application under "business transactions." These act as the principal components of tracking and troubleshooting and give greater visibility on server-centric management.
AppDynamics' Benefits over Free Java profilers
Tracks the performance and availability of your JVM
Discovers and fixes SQL and NoSQL latency
Pro-actively notifies JVM health and performance issues
Fixes and locates the main cause for the issues with respect to application performance in minutes
Tracks MBean metrics in real-time
Monitor Business Transactions
AppDynamics possesses the ability to discover business transactions automatically from common entry points into your JVM (struts actions, spring MVC, POJO, servlets). It executes business transactions through various Java components that enable you to track JVMs from a superior level.
Real-Time Alerting for the JVM
AppDynamics warns the support teams about performance issues through dynamic SLA base-lining and pro-active alerting. This allows the application and production support teams to fix issues before it affects end-users.
Detect Thrown Exceptions
AppDynamics captures and briefs complete run-time exceptions of the application that are tossed inside the JVM server. This enables users with a superior view of thrown stack traces that occur when user requests and business transactions timeout or fail.
More Java Profiling and Free Java Profilers

AppDynamics Pro is a commercial product for application performance management. Instead of just Java profiling, it tracks and manages in a single-pane-of-glass, a large and distributed application.
