View how database performance correlates to application performance in real-time to understand the root-cause of application performance issues.

Data collectors for PHP

AppDynamics has added support for data collectors in PHP to capture useful data from HTTP requests and cookie data.  This makes it really easy to query all transactions for a specific user.

With data collectors for PHP developers can track and correlate data from user interactions to get a more complete picture of the applications and it’s users.  Understanding how users interact with the application gives developers the information they need to prioritize development efforts.

Real-time business metrics for PHP

AppDynamics has added support for real-time business metrics in PHP.  This allows developers to quickly configure and view important business metrics in real-time like how revenue correlates with different application events like code release.

By automatically correlating application performance metrics with business metrics with no code changes required, developers get visibility into how the releases they work on positively affect the business.
