The feature that I found most valuable in Azure Monitor is its monitoring abilities. With Azure Monitor, you are able to monitor all of your cloud resources across multiple subscriptions in one dashboard and create solution-specific alerts that can trigger an email to the team responsible for that specific solution.

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.

Splunk handles a high amount of data very well. We use Splunk to capture information and as an aggregator for monitoring information from different sources. Splunk is very good at alerting us if we have problems somewhere or if we are not getting the flow we expect. It is very easy to search for queries and events and then do analysis. The flexibility of the search capability is extremely valuable. Splunk works well with other solutions. It is very easy to set up and very straightforward to deploy. The more data you process with Splunk, the more expensive it gets; an improved pricing model is needed. It would be great if Splunk had more SIEM functionality with better customization and a better ticket tool. The on-premises scaling is a bit more limited than on the cloud. Splunk currently has some limited default rules and customizations. If they could concentrate more on compliance and security information, that would be an added bonus. Azure Monitor has made it significantly easier for us to monitor applications and infrastructure for possible problems. This solution offers a survey of surveillance in real time and a very helpful dashboard. Azure Monitor, which is integrated with Azure DevOps, has good load gathering and very good analytics. We get useful alerts with Azure Monitor that make recommendations about the security and the platform. There should be more specific detail about where problems lie. Azure Monitor is lacking somewhat in vulnerability assessment; this aspect could be better. Their automation also needs some improvement. From gathering metrics from more applications to getting processes quickly started when something goes down, automation should be better. Conclusion: For us, Splunk is the better solution. We use Splunk to search, monitor, analyze, and visualize machine data, which it does very well. The dashboard is very intuitive. The log collection and log management tools are very good. We find Splunk’s search capability to be very powerful and flexible. Splunk can access any kind of data and there is no limitation to the kind of structured or unstructured data you can extract. Our team also liked that Splunk offers better integration with more solutions.

People like you are visiting IT Central Station to learn about APM for their company. Who uses APM? What are the use cases? There's a lot of hype from vendors in this market. Thanks for helping your peers cut through vendor hype and make the best decision.

APM is being used by many groups: a) Support team – To identify the problems before they happen and take corrective actions. b) Infra team – To maintain the high availability SLA for their servers/services. c) Business/Functional team – Business KPIs are a good indicator of an underlying problem. d) CIO/CEO Dashboard to see how their Apps/Systems are behaving and what is the end user experience.

Companies and people who want to know how their applications are performing, how the users are experiencing the applications, where the bottlenecks are, want to reduce the MTTR and MTTI, reduce the noise, stop the blame game use APM. Use cases: - Transaction Monitoring - User Performance - User behaviour analytics - JVM/CLR monitoring - Remote Calls Monitoring - Middleware Monitoring - Business KPIs monitoring etc. There are great uses of APM products depending on what are your requirements are.
