We were looking for application performance management solution (APM) for our .net. We were using New Relic's free version but it wasn't cutting it and we were missing some capabilities. Stackify's solution is great and as a bonus we got their log management and exception aggregation tools that are integrated with the APM. Plus the team at Stackify was very helpful
Stackify does a great job at providing lots of useful information without it becoming overwhelming. All of the features are well thought out and it has proven very helpful at diagnosing and preventing bugs in our application.
Used for application performance management (APM), great solution with great pricing. Very cool how they integrated error and log data into stack trace
Profiling of slow requests. It helps to understand the bootstrapping and the whole requests cycle.
