We performed a comparison between Dynatrace and Zabbix based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Datadog, Dynatrace, New Relic and others in Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and Observability.
"The solution can be deployed quickly on-prem. Once it's deployed, you can use discovery and review the process and service on this application."
"The visibility that it provides is most valuable."
"Having OneAgent is the most valuable feature of Dyantrace, as well as the monitoring."
"Great for monitoring critical internal and public-facing applications."
"Smartscape is a valuable feature. They also have a technology named PurePath. PurePath is the distributed tracing data."
"The most valuable features for me are the dashboard panels because they enable you to monitor multiple applications in one single site."
"Dynatrace has reduced our total headcount in operations and the mean time to detect and resolve problems. As a result, those challenging offline times are much shorter, if not non-existent, because of this solution."
"The move valuable feature is the AI engine, which is amazing."
"The flexibility of this solution is amazing."
"The most valuable feature is that it provides network segregation for server monitoring."
"There is a problems page that shows us every warning or problem that occurs on our VMs globally. The map screen is also really useful because this is something that was missing. I don't know every other tool in the market. So, I don't know if this is a good point of only Zabbix, or other tools are also doing it, but from my point of view, this is the most useful page that I use, along with the problems page that efficiently lists the problem, recovery time, ending hours, starting hours, and so on."
"Setup was straightforward. Initial deployment took two or three months."
"It meets my organizational needs. It's pretty easy to use."
"Zabbix helps to save time."
"The solution allows for good integration with other products."
"The initial setup, while not simple, is easier than other products."
"Support for cloud-based environments needs to be improved."
"Network monitoring is lacking and could be improved."
"For a new user of Dynatrace, the tool is not easy to understand, so this is an area for improvement. Before using it, you need to learn from an expert."
"There should be more visibility for network performance monitoring. There should be more metrics for things like 5G and IoT. That would be the main thing because they've moved more to mobile performance rather than fixed networks."
"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 solution could improve by allowing more dashboards customization. This would allow us to monitor the metric better."
"It would help if Dynatrace allowed more features that work with metrics like Grafana or New Relic."
"The con of Dynatrace is that, at times, because it has so much information, it becomes difficult to see the root cause of your problem, and then you have to dig around to find the root cause."
"I had problems using Zabbix when working with SUSE Enterprise; many companies use SUSE."
"The reports are not great and should be improved."
"The networking monitor is not too easy to work with."
"There is a bit of a learning curve during installation."
"Zabbix isn't very good at automation just yet."
"Documentation terminology could be improved."
"An area for improvement would be the ease of doing aggregation from the value or different devices."
"The GUI could be more intuitive. Also, we'd like streaming telemetry. Zabbix might have this feature, but I haven't seen it yet. It took us a long time to get started because the documentation isn't very descriptive. We had to go through various sources like YouTube and forums to get this solution working."

Reviews from Real Users
Dynatrace is the only solution that provides answers to organizations based on deep insight into each user, transaction, and organization's environment.
Barry P., a managing performance engineer at Medica Health Plans, writes, "With Dynatrace, we have synthetic checks and real-user monitoring of all of our websites, places where members and providers can interact with us over the web. We monitor the response times of those with Dynatrace, and it's all integrated into one place."
A consultant at a tech service company notes, "A feature that's one of the highlights of Dynatrace is the AI. The second most valuable feature is OneAgent. Between infrastructures, applications, operating systems, you can deploy with just a single agent and can practically install and forget about it."
