Use AppDynamics to identify and map your Azure services and tiers automatically, and see the relationships between them.
AppDynamics is changing the way organizations monitor their cloud applications. We were built from the ground up to monitor modern application architectures – including ones that are distributed, agile, and extremely hard to manage.
What is AppDynamics?
AppDynamics, an application performance monitoring solution, helps:
Identify issues such as slow and delayed user requests and errors in a production setting
Fine-tune and identify the main cause of such issues
With AppDynamics, Windows Azure users can now:
Monitor their Windows Azure application health
Swiftly identify the main cause of performance issues
Troubleshoot performance problems in real-time
Ramp up and down their Windows Azure application dynamically based on performance metrics
End-to-End Distributed Business Transaction Tracing
Across all Windows Azure Services (SQL Azure, Service Bus & Storage - not just the Compute Services). AppDynamics identifies the business transactions that end users experience automatically. This enables the development and IT Operations teams the much-needed visibility to track and manage the end-user experience. Not only that, it helps them understand the flow of transactions inside and across each Azure Role, application tier, and Services.
Deep Diagnostics for Rapid Root-Cause Analysis
With AppDynamics, organizations can easily identify the main cause for issues like poor QoS, slowdowns, or outages within seconds with no blind spots. Its call graphs display not just the common Microsoft interfaces and libraries but also all classes & methods invoked (Inc. custom).
Auto-Scaling for Windows Azure
AppDynamics provides more Windows Azure resources automatically when your application and business transactions need it.
Application Mapping for Windows Azure - Roles and Services
AppDynamics automatically detects, maps, and foresees the living topology and production application performance functioning inside Windows Azure.
No Alert Storming
Superior base-lining, thresholds, and problem detection.
"You can't afford not having the visibility that AppDynamics provides. If we didn’t have AppDynamics, it would be really like driving a car at 100 miles per hour with your eyes closed.”
Hector Aguilar, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President of Engineering, Okta
Introducing Real-Time Business Metrics
"I’ve been looking forward to writing this blog for some time. I have worked with many enterprise customers to document the pain they solved using AppDynamics and a common question I always ask is “What was the actual business impact of that slowdown or outage?”, the result is that most customers guesstimate the revenue impact of slow performance, and are generally nervous about calculating such number...."
Dressing for dinner with Oracle Tuxedo
"Can you imagine a world where you have a single, centrally managed, platform instrumenting and collecting data from your whole IT landscape in real-time? Allowing you to troubleshoot issues, analyze their business impact, and even track the flow of business operations (order shipments, transaction settlements, phone line installations, etc.) in real time? We can at AppDynamics, which is why we have adopted the “Application Intelligence Platform” moniker...."
