“Originally we were using Wily Introscope for deep method inspections. One of the reasons it didn’t pan out for us was the requirement that we tell it whenever a particular event was occurring, and that we needed to know more about that event. It becomes difficult whenever you don’t know that a particular type of event is about to happen and you go to your APM and say, ‘Now pay attention. Now give me some more.’ Something like AppDynamics, which detects that event and says, ‘Hey, something interesting is going on, I’m going to collect more data for you.’ That was more in line with the type of solution we were looking for.”
