AppDynamics vs App Enlight: What are the differences?

AppDynamics: Application management for the cloud generation. AppDynamics develops application performance management (APM) solutions that deliver problem resolution for highly distributed applications through transaction flow monitoring and deep diagnostics; App Enlight: Track errors and performance issues in your app. App Enlight provides a helpful interface to let you and your team save time spent on debugging and reproducing exceptions and performance issues from a production environment.

AppDynamics can be classified as a tool in the "Performance Monitoring" category, while App Enlight is grouped under "Exception Monitoring".

Some of the features offered by AppDynamics are:

  • End User Monitoring
  • Real-Time Business Transaction Monitoring
  • Visualize & Manage your Entire Application

On the other hand, App Enlight provides the following key features:

  • Provides exception tracking including local variables
  • Gathers global performance metrics per server
  • Provides application response times, throughput divided by layers and distinct views/controllers

"Deep code visibility" is the top reason why over 10 developers like AppDynamics, while over 4 developers mention "Instant setup" as the leading cause for choosing App Enlight.

Hi Folks,

I am trying to evaluate Site24x7 against AppDynamics, Dynatrace, and New Relic. Has anyone used Site24X7? If so, what are your opinions on the tool? I know that the license costs are very low compared to other tools in the market. Other than that, are there any major issues anyone has encountered using the tool itself?
