Let’s Answer Some Of Your Questions
What is APM monitoring?
Application performance monitoring (APM) tools monitor metrics such as infrastructure, user experience and business transactions, collecting data from the inside looking out. This goes for all APMs, including AppDynamics, Dynatrace etc.
Alternatively, Website Monitoring specialists (such as RapidSpike) collect data from the outside looking in – exactly how your customers see your website. Both have important functions when collecting a holistic view of your website health.
Why choose RapidSpike?
When it comes to monitoring your websites performance, security and reliability metrics in depth, APM tools such as New Relic are too broad to focus down into the data required to gain deeper analysis.
Synthetic testing is key to understanding the root cause of website issues. New Relic does provide a Synthetics product (one of thirteen areas of application performance monitoring!). However this is not their area of expertise, as they are primarily focused on the code, infrastructure and observability side of APM. Therefore, their synthetics solution does not provide deep enough data to monitor your complex website.
Should I use APM monitoring or Website Monitoring?
Both tools have different viewpoints, functionalities, and specialities. For example – if you were to decorate your house, you may choose to whitewash with a general contractor (New Relic) or decorate each room with a specialist interior designer (RapidSpike).
It depends on your individual needs, but if your website is important to your business goals, you likely need a specialist tool that understands that complexity. For a holistic understanding from every view point, it would be beneficial to use both tools together.
