We performed a comparison between Dynatrace and Alluvio Aternity based on real PeerSpot user reviews in five categories. After reading all of the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison Results: Dynatrace is the preferred option over Alluvio Aternity due to its more comprehensive features such as real user monitoring, session replay, and synthetic monitoring functionalities, as well as AI capabilities for automating incident alerts and topology visualization. While Alluvio Aternity provides valuable data on machine health and performance, users suggest that it could benefit from more customizable reporting options and detailed performance counters.
"The ability to quickly utilize the dashboard to gather information is valuable from a DXI perspective."
"There are many valuable features. If I had to single out one, it would be the UXI score. That's a proprietary Aternity score that tells you how good or bad the experience is for a user on that particular machine, for a particular app. It neatly encapsulates the pain of the user in a single score. It's very easy to find issues and then drill down further into those issues, based on that score."
"Aternity easily provides visibility of all the endpoint machines to my clients."
"Alluvio Aternity is stable."
"The data the solution provides is valuable to us; we can see the health of the machines, how they are performing, and what might be causing issues on a particular machine."
"The most valuable feature of Alluvio Aternity is the compiling and displaying of end-user data so that we can utilize it to troubleshoot proactively."
"The move valuable feature is the AI engine, which is amazing."
"It is a 100 percent stable solution...Dynatrace is a highly scalable product since it is a SaaS-based application."
"It is very easy to create customized dashboards."
"Dynatrace has the most features compared to other products we looked at."
"The most useful features are cloud monitoring, application monitoring, and alert notifications."
"Dynatrace is stable."
"Dynatrace has multiple features that I need, but I love that you can analyze traffic, including any bottlenecks. I also find the tool user-friendly and has an easy-to-navigate interface."
"PurePath is one of the best features."
"The solution is available at a higher price than other solutions."
"The solution's downloadable reports could be improved."
"I would like to see more granular performance counters collected and viewable from the endpoints. That would be great."
"The licensing model doesn't suit the market we are in and has room for improvement."
"I want more reporting around asset management, with greater flexibility and customization ability."
"I would like Alluvio Aternity to be certified by the IRAP for petrol companies in Australia."
"The reporting could be better."
"Support for cloud-based environments needs to be improved."
"They're doing vulnerability assessments of the application stack by using OneAgent. It's a never-ending story if you are trying to be sure your application is also secure."
"The documentation of Dynatrace needs to be improved. There needs to be a more detailed description and additional examples for background understanding for beginners trying to use it."
"Dynatrace could be improved by having a fully functional applications and infrastructure monitoring feature. Their existing stack, which is SNMP-based, does not have full infrastructure monitoring, whereas if we compare it with other solutions like New Relic or Datadog, they have moved into infrastructure monitoring. The second improvement I would suggest is in regards to the cost. So far, Dynatrace is the most expensive APM that we sell, even compared to New Relic. I think they can improve a little bit in terms of the license pricing."
"The licensing part is complicated or not transparent. It is very difficult to assess the number of licenses for a prospect. You have to do a PoC, and calculating the number of licenses for two years or three years is sometimes very difficult. It also depends on each case. There are multiple types of licenses. Sometimes, you need only one of them, and sometimes, you need all of them. This is an area for improvement."
"It would help if Dynatrace allowed more features that work with metrics like Grafana or New Relic."
"I would say that this solution's reports are lacking a little bit, and because of this, you have to rely on API to fetch and pull data. I think they could have done a bit of a better job by providing a more user-friendly search from a reporting perspective."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by Aternity users.
PeerSpot user Ryan P., Head of Cyber Security Engineering & Oversight at a media company, says, "The most valuable thing that you get from Aternity is very broad visibility. You get visibility of your network, of your endpoints, of your software usage, your application performance, capacity, in one pane of glass. We had 20 to 30 IT tools, including application performance monitoring, network monitoring, security, endpoint detection, network protection, capacity management, service management — every kind of monitoring you can imagine. But Aternity was always the first place that I turned for anything, because you can see everything in it."
An Endpoint Administration Manager at a financial services firm mentions, “It gives you the ability to filter the comparison by geography, industry, or company size.” He also adds, “We have absolutely seen ROI. It's really given us a very high level of visibility that we've just not ever had.”
A Regional Network Manager at a recruiting/HR firm comments, "Aternity provides metrics about actual employee experience of all business-critical apps, rather than just a few. It does some out-of-the-box monitoring for the Office suite, but you can create custom monitoring for any of your applications, whether a web client or a desktop application."
A Sr. IT Manager at a manufacturing company states, "The most valuable feature is the application performance troubleshooting because Aternity is able to provide the performance from the end-user perspective. It doesn't just give the standard application logon time, etc., rather it's also able to measure the performance inside the application, the performance of specific transactions in the application, and break it down into three elements: the client time, the network time, and the server time. This gives us a lot of insights into what we need to focus on to improve the performance of an application."
