Phalcon is an open-source web application framework that is implemented as a compiled C extension to optimize its performance and handle more requests per second than comparable PHP-based frameworks. Known as a "full-stack" framework, Phalcon employs an MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture and Object Relational Mapping (ORM) to handle events, behaviors, profiling, relations, transactions, logging, validations, and other tasks. Its many features include caching and pagination capabilities, a request object library, the Volt template engine, a universal class loader, and object-oriented encryption. Phalcon may be installed on AWS (Amazon Web Services), RackSpace, and WindowsAzure, among other cloud hosting platforms.
The AppDynamics platform provides full, code-level visibility into the performance of your PHP application built on the Phalcon framework. With rapid installation and the most scalable architecture in the industry, AppDynamics solutions help you deploy your applications more quickly and with more confidence.
Distributed transaction tracing
Quickly find performance bottlenecks by tracing transactions across any heterogeneous application environment and correlating PHP calls to downstream Java/.Net/PHP/Node.js tiers.
Web and mobile user experience correlation
Understand the client-side performance impact of business transactions by automatically correlating browser and device performance to originating business transaction performance metrics.
Database / NoSQL visibility
Expand visibility from the user to the database by correlating database performance to originating business transaction performance metrics.
