AWS X-Ray vs Dynatrace: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS X-Ray as "An application performance management service". It helps developers analyze and debug production, distributed applications, such as those built using a microservices architecture. With this, you can understand how your application and its underlying services are performing to identify and troubleshoot the root cause of performance issues and errors. It provides an end-to-end view of requests as they travel through your application, and shows a map of your application’s underlying components. On the other hand, Dynatrace is detailed as "Monitor, optimize, and scale every app, in any cloud". It is an AI-powered, full stack, automated performance management solution. It provides user experience analysis that identifies and resolves application performance issues faster than ever before.

AWS X-Ray and Dynatrace belong to "Performance Monitoring" category of the tech stack.

According to the StackShare community, Dynatrace has a broader approval, being mentioned in 99 company stacks & 10 developers stacks; compared to AWS X-Ray, which is listed in 17 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.

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?
