Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis.""Azure Monitor is really just a source for Dynatrace. It's just collecting data and monitoring the environment and the infrastructure. It is fairly good at that.""We like this searchability and availability of the data.""Azure Monitor is very stable.""The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds.""The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use.""The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up.""The solution is quite stable."

"It does everything we wanted it to do.""The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us.""Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly.""The service maps that it creates, the health maps that it creates, the insights that it provides, etc., are all quite useful.""The simplicity of the dashboard is very good.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring.""The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done.""End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good."

Cons
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie.""When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible.""In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs.""There are a lot of things that take more time to do, such as charting, alerting, and correlation of data, and things like that. Azure Monitor doesn't tell you why something happened. It just tells you that it happened. It should also have some type of AI. Environments and applications are becoming more and more complex every day with hundreds or thousands of microservices. Therefore, having to do a lot of the stuff manually takes a lot of time, and on top of that, troubleshooting issues takes a lot of time. The traditional method of troubleshooting doesn't really work for or apply to this environment we're in. So, having an AI-based system and the ability to automate deployments of your monitoring and configurations makes it much easier.""I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now.""The troubleshooting logs need improvement. There should be some improvement there. I have a hard time finding the right logs at the right times whenever there is an issue occurring.""Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved.""The price could be lower but it is not a must."

"It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level.""The deployment process could be improved.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited.""There has been some problem with the agent, and it is just not working well. It is not able to record information with the application server. They have been able to fix the issue, but it took quite a long time. This is the main issue in the APM products and also in New Relic. The mobile application monitoring has been pretty difficult to set up and also quite expensive. It should be a little bit easier and cheaper. Because it is pretty difficult and expensive, many customers don't take it.""It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards.""The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be."
