Application Insights (Microsoft)

Microsoft App Insights is arguably not a full-fledged APM solution. It does not do code level profiling but instead provides some high-level performance details only for SQL queries and web service calls. We would call it “APM light”.

Cons: No reporting per SQL query. No transaction tracing view. Does not correlate logs, errors, and request details well. No reporting across apps. Does not work for non web apps without major code changes. Can not track the performance of any line of code in your app via custom CLR profiling.

  • Languages: .NET, Java
  • Application dependency mapping
  • Integrated into Azure portal
  • Advanced reporting and analytics capabilities

Cost: $15 per month per server + data charges
