We performed a comparison between Avada Software Infrared360 and Dynatrace based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Datadog, Dynatrace, New Relic and others in Application Performance Management (APM).
"To me, the most valuable feature of New Relic APM is the traceability, mainly based on the time travel method, so you get the overall response time, which is pretty helpful for developers and ADR techs looking into issues on a deeper level. New Relic APM is a very good, tailor-made solution."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to receive in-depth information about applications. It can detect a lot of important information."
"Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly."
"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."
"The monitoring so far has been good and we are happy with it."
"The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."
"The stability of New Relic APM is very good."
"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"It has role-based access to queues, giving us more insights into problems."
"It is useful for analytics, web performance, end-to-end coverage of a user experience, and database analytics. It is absolutely a monitoring tool that is worth having. The visibility that it provides is a unique feature of this product."
"It helps to improve code efficiency and has quicker performance analysis."
"Dynatrace helped us with root cause analysis of poor performing components of our applications."
"With the Agentless monitoring and ability to create custom plugins, we've been able to transform the tool not just into a great APM solution but a really good enterprise monitoring solution too."
"The Davis artificial intelligence built-in program is valuable. It keeps all the information about the systems, connections, service calls, and requests in its database. It looks at response times and keeps everything in check with baseline figures. If anything goes outside of that baseline, it reports based on that. If the performance starts degrading, it reports on that. Before something breaks, it tells you that it is going to break, and that's the most useful feature of Dynatrace."
"Its monitoring and key purpose capabilities are the most valuable. It provides the root cause of problems and helps peers join the war room."
"The solution is amazing, it does well when you need to use it."
"Having OneAgent is the most valuable feature of Dyantrace, as well as the monitoring."
"It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."
"How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited."
"It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards."
"New Relic APM could improve error debugging and the correlation with the logs. We are receiving some alerts or alarms but we need to correlate with the error log, but it is difficult if it is more than seven months retention period, it is hard to trace. We need this especially for getting historical information."
"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."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"I haven't come across any features that are lacking."
"Documentation could be improved in New Relic APM, so users would have more clarity on configuring the dashboard. If New Relic gave better guidelines, users would find it easier to understand the metrics and features of New Relic APM. Another area for improvement is integration with Kubernetes. Currently, the process isn't user-friendly. It's challenging and lacks documentation for users to understand how to integrate New Relic APM with Kubernetes quickly. With multiple levels of Kubernetes dockers and other DBs on different clouds, it's tricky to gather all into New Relic APM on a single dashboard. What I'd like to see in the next version of New Relic APM is a single dashboard where you can easily view which applications fall under specific APMs. If there's a search feature where you can type in a keyword to find out if an APM is related to a particular application, that would be great."
"We desire a dashboard that could accumulate BOQ lengths per tenant on one screen for all tenants."
"Its infra monitoring is not that good. They are mainly into the APM environment, such as network monitoring and other things. Strong end-to-end infrastructure monitoring is missing. SNMP monitoring is currently not very good in this solution."
"The solution could improve on integration, cloud services, and making the configuration less difficult."
"For the user, for the customer, they expect a solution to be not so expensive."
"Dashboards and monitoring capabilities can be improved for monitoring applications in Azure. In Azure, it would be cool to be able to monitor network consumption as well as flow communication."
"I would like a testing module focused on quality gates."
"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 flexibility when it comes to integrating with other tools is very low."
"The reporting could be better."

“To me, the most valuable feature of New Relic APM is the traceability, mainly based on the time travel method, so you get the overall response time, which is pretty helpful for developers and ADR techs looking into issues on a deeper level. “ - Sreenivasula M., Sr. Engineer of Quality Assurance at a tech consulting company.
“The alert mechanism is quite accurate when something goes wrong in your system. For example, if you have hundreds of APIs on your server, and any of the APIs is not performing well, you get an alert. When there is a drop or change in the threshold value, the beauty of New Relic is that within a fraction of seconds, all the stakeholders who are configured in the New Relic system will get an alert. That's one good thing.” - A PeerSpot user who is a Middleware Specialist at a tech services company.
Avada Software specializes in Enterprise Middleware solutions. Founded by some pioneers in SOA, MQ and J2EE technology, Avada’s Flagship product, Infrared360, is a holistic & innovative private cloud enabled portal providing self-service administration, monitoring, load testing, auditing & statistical reporting for Enterprise Middleware including IBM’s middleware stack of MQ, IIB (message broker), WAS, and Datapower, as well as other applications servers such as JBoss, TC Server, Weblogic, and other messaging technologies such as Tibco EMS and Kafka*.
Accessed via any web browser on any device, Infrared360 is a single web application, yet scales to 2500+ endpoints without deploying anything (no agents, no scripts) to those endpoints.
Using trusted ‘spaces’ and delegated visibility and control, the portal uniquely provides different business units or even different application users virtual ‘spaces’ in which to work. Within those spaces are only the objects and resources the user has been granted visibility. Role policy dictates permissions on those resources.
It is the ONLY Enterprise Messaging Solution with a built in SOA engine that lets you leverage internal and external services for managing and correcting problems within your middleware messaging environment.
