AppDynamics for PHP performs real-time Drupal code profiling, discover bottlenecks and go down to the method and class level to detect the root cause.
Tuning your code for any language is highly important to be it interpreted languages like PHP. Though PHP is a bit slower than compiled languages, it is the foundation for many popular applications. Even in hybrid environments, real-time profiling PHP nodes play an important role in managing overall application performance.
Most often developers work for days and weeks together on a performance optimization project but couldn't achieve even the slightest improvement in application performance. Hence, visibility is highly important to know where to begin.
For effective and efficient performance optimization, it's important to have a PHP profiler that monitors your production environment. This helps you to figure out the impact that your optimization efforts had on your end-users.
Easy to install and use
AppDynamics does PHP tuning easily. It discovers and maps your PHP application automatically and initiates baselining performance for each Business Transaction. This helps you to find the bottleneck in your application easily and begin troubleshooting swiftly once the performance starts to degrade.
Drill down to code-level detail
Compared to other PHP performance tools, AppDynamics has the most absolute call stack traces. This helps to detect a poor-performing transaction quickly, go down within the call stack trace, and detect the code line accountable for the latency.
No more alert storms
Most monitoring tools depend on static, global thresholds to send alerts. This leads to alert storms or missed problems. But AppDynamics sets alerts based on Business Transaction performance. Hence, it alerts only when something is actually wrong.
Key Features of PHP Monitoring
Business Transactions: It includes automatic detection, calls per minute, response time, slow, very slow, stalls
SQL Statement Visibility: prep statements & PDO statements, remove sensitive data
Application Flow Map: It visualizes all dependencies of your application
Errors: It includes transaction errors, backend errors and so on
Code-level Diagnostics: It involves sessions of diagnostic that reveal full code execution, policy-based collection
Real User Monitoring: Code-level diagnostics matched with browser diagnostics
Change Detection: Record application change events
Real-Time Analytics: Scoring and baselining and of application and transaction performance automatically
“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.”

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...."
