More Instana Dynamic APM Pros →

"The most useful feature of this solution is tracking. When the application's traffic has been monitored it is taken from that particular application and analyzed. It is then given a live session of that particular user. For example, if you are using your bank application to do some kind of transaction, everything that you do can be tracked by that application.""Very easy to implement.""The most valuable feature is application performance monitoring.""The reporting feature is good for us.""The technical support is good at resolving issues."

Cons
"The configuration of Instana Dynamic APM needs improvement because it requires quite a bit of work.""I think that Instana should improve the university and the certification process, so the users can find experts in Instana with their certification module process."

More Instana Dynamic APM Cons →

"Everybody is moving away from traffic and installing agents on the application to do the job, but Micro Focus is using traditional ways to collect the traffic. They should change their architecture completely.""Some issues with login errors.""We would like to see support for non-Windows environments.""This technology is considered to be older.""When we want to monitor our encrypted traffic, this product doesn't work because our cipher is not supported."
