AppDynamics vs TraceView: 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; TraceView: Ridiculously Detailed Application Monitoring. Expose everything, from the webserver to database, cache and API calls. The core technology is based on X-Trace, a distributed tracing framework that’s served as the inspiration for companies like Google and Twitter.

AppDynamics and TraceView can be categorized as "Performance Monitoring" tools.

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, TraceView provides the following key features:

  • Track every machine involved in a transaction and identify bottlenecks in a single click.
  • Isolate interesting calls and drill down to the line of code and machine it ran on.
  • Tie together code and infrastructure metrics with database, service, and cache calls, all in the context of a single transaction.

"Deep code visibility" is the primary reason why developers consider AppDynamics over the competitors, whereas "The heatmap helped me isolate DB related issues" was stated as the key factor in picking TraceView.
