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.
