Stackify offers a robust application performance monitoring solution that provides developers, operations and support teams with complete DevOps visibility. The app monitoring software gives you a 360 degree view of all all performance metrics related to your stack in one platform. Stackify does this by providing app, database and server monitoring, along with error tracking and log management. The software combines the functionalities of a number of monitoring and troubleshooting apps in one. This all-in-one approach means Stackify can give insight into how server and app performance issues and data are connected, flagging up errors and speeding up time to resolution.
Stackify’s integrated platform is built to answer three pertinent questions that often plague developers: Why is my application down? Why is my app slow? And why is my app behaving oddly? These questions are resolved through app and server monitoring, web page performance monitoring, error and log management, and KPI metrics and reports. These tools are further enhanced through a range of smart notifications that capture and report vital information, such as the user identity and the server the error happened on. With Stackify, you can receive emails of SMS alerts when new errors arise or when error rates exceed defined thresholds.
Stackify supports cloud, VMs (virtual machines), and on-premise applications on all Windows and Linux servers. Aside from flagging and troubleshooting errors, the solution allows you to continuously monitor your apps performance and user engagement. You can see user satisfaction metrics, monitor page load times, track code level performance and monitor database query speeds. Through Stackify’s API you can define and track your own custom KPI metrics, as well as set your own alerts and notifications. The app also helps to automatically log errors for full visibility of stack traces, web requests, and log statements. All app can be aggregated together with full text searching.Show more screenshots »
Stackify was born in 2012, and was the brainchild of Matt Watson, former CTO of an enterprise SaaS provider. Watson was inspired to build the tool to combat the frustration his agile development team experienced in troubleshooting IT problems. Stackify aims to remove the need to implement numerous tools to accurately monitor all your apps and servers, providing one go-to solution for all your app performance and error resolution needs. Current clients include Ticket Solutions, VeriShip, ABPathfinder and SWAAS.
Stackify differs from other app monitoring tools in its ability to cover all ground related to app performance monitoring, troubleshooting and reporting. The app removes the need to have multiple tools for different monitoring tasks by aggregating data from across all servers, environments and stacks, offering contextual information through errors, logs and app metrics. Stackify provides a single dashboard for a complete overview of the health of your entire stack in real-time, including error log, alert and notification history.
Stackify’s interface comprises a spectrum of different shades of navy and blue, with a navigation header for quick access to all the app’s key features: Stacks, Monitoring, Database, Errors, Logs and Settings. Stackify provides a dashboard that displays app monitoring and performance KPIs through visual, color-coded graphs and tables. This single dashboard view allows you to visualize the performance of all our apps across multiple environments, with data such as app logging rate, server CPU %, server memory %, app pool memory, satisfaction score and much more.
