Turbocharging AppDynamics with OverOps

Posted by Mick McGuinness on 09 January 2018


OverOps has the ability to integrate with AppDynamics via a link that will take you to a screen showing the exact code and variables that were used in production at the time of an error.

AppDynamics is a leading APM (Application Performance Management) tool which monitors the performance of your applications in production and can also give visibility into the errors and exceptions that your application is throwing. AppDynamics is very good at giving you the error context such as which business transactions and which users were affected. AppDynamics can also show the error message or stack trace but often those aren't enough for a developer to diagnose the root cause of the problem without having to spend time in a pre-production environment attempting to reproduce the issue.

In a pre-production environment, a developer can fire up a debugger and step through the source code to see the variables and their states. But sometimes reproducing a problem can be hard, or even impossible, as you don't know the exact input variables that occured in the production environment that led to the error.

OverOps is like a low overhead production debugger. It gives you the source code and variable state that were used at the exact moment when the error occured in production. This means you no longer have to spend time attempting to reproduce it and can move straight to the fix.

From AppDynamics to OverOps in 1-click

To see the integration in action watch this short video. With a single click you can jump from the application error reported by AppDynamics to the source code and variable state view inside OverOps.

A similar integration is also available for Splunk, SumoLogic, ELK, dynatrace, New Relic and others.

OverOps can also post notifications of new errors to JIRA, Slack, HipChat or ServiceNow.
