AppDynamics vs Scout: What are the differences?

What is AppDynamics? Application management for the cloud generation. AppDynamics develops application performance management (APM) solutions that deliver problem resolution for highly distributed applications through transaction flow monitoring and deep diagnostics.

What is Scout? Application Monitoring that Developers Love. Scout is application monitoring that points developers right to the source of problems: N+1 database queries, memory bloat, performance trends, and more Scout eliminates much of the investigation part when performance woes occur. .

AppDynamics and Scout belong to "Performance Monitoring" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by AppDynamics are:

  • End User Monitoring
  • Real-Time Business Transaction Monitoring
  • Visualize & Manage your Entire Application

On the other hand, Scout provides the following key features:

  • Monitors Ruby & Elixir apps with more languages to come
  • Easy install
  • Detailed transaction traces

"Deep code visibility" is the primary reason why developers consider AppDynamics over the competitors, whereas "Easy setup" was stated as the key factor in picking Scout.

Binary.com, Rollbar, and Publitas are some of the popular companies that use Scout, whereas AppDynamics is used by Intuit, Zalando, and Okta. Scout has a broader approval, being mentioned in 29 company stacks & 7 developers stacks; compared to AppDynamics, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

Hi Folks,

I am trying to evaluate Site24x7 against AppDynamics, Dynatrace, and New Relic. Has anyone used Site24X7? If so, what are your opinions on the tool? I know that the license costs are very low compared to other tools in the market. Other than that, are there any major issues anyone has encountered using the tool itself?
