As PHP has become more popular in the enterprise, a host of PHP performance tools have appeared to help organizations troubleshoot bottlenecks in their PHP code. Free profilers like XDebug are popular in a development environment, but are difficult to use and incur too much overhead to be used in production. To manage the performance of a mission-critical PHP application, organizations need a solution that is scalable and lightweight without sacrificing visibility.
AppDynamics for PHP is an easy-to-use PHP performance monitoring solution that's designed for production environments. With AppDynamics you can easily monitor, troubleshoot and diagnose bottlenecks in your production PHP application without having to worry about impacting performance.
AppDynamics' intuitive user interface makes it easy to identify bottlenecks and troubleshoot root cause. AppDynamics automatically detects and maps your application architecture, including remote web service calls and database calls. Furthermore, common issues like PHP errors and slow or stalled transactions are grouped in the Scorecard, giving you a high-level overview of how your application is performing.
No other monitoring tools offer call stacks as deep and complete as AppDynamics'. With AppDynamics Deep Dive Diagnostics you can quickly identify the root cause of PHP crashes, Drupal errors and more.
With AppDynamics' self-learning baselines you never have to receive an unnecessary alert again. Set up alerts based on business transaction, application and infrastructure-level metrics so you only receive alerts when your end users are affected.
