AppDynamics allows you to drill down into any specific JVM call stack trace to detect all method and class level detail about response time latency. All just in a matter of seconds. Application performance monitors the display response time correlation across the application. However, AppDynamics offers complete visibility and easily enables users to get reach the root cause of JVM performance issues in a few seconds.
AppDynamics maps and detects a the tiers that interact with your Java application, offering a complete view into application performance that is a lot better than other Java performance monitoring tools.
Appdynamics helps you understand the health of your JVM along with key Java tuning and profiling metrics, such as - throughput, exception rate, response time,garbage collection time, code deadlock (Java). Using the same UI, you can monitor system resources that include memory, CPU, and disk I/O.
Automatically reporting all changes to the JVM run-time environment configuration, AppDynamics also tracks new application deployments and JVM restarts. This way you can understand the nature of the changes made to your application environment.
Although there are many free JVM monitoring tools, most of them are not easy to use and often incur too much overhead, making it unsuitable for production environments. AppDynamics allows you to track and monitor JVM performance and health in a live production environment without worrying about end user experience.
