Cisco AppDynamics



Cisco AppDynamics is an APM solution that provides real-time insights into your business applications. Turbonomic leverages the application metrics to make smarter resourcing decisions in the underlying infrastructure to ensure that your business applications always get the resources they need to perform.

When using AppDynamics along with Kubernetes, Turbonomic supports the full stack representation of containerized workloads from application, to Kubernetes components, to the underlying infrastructure of the APM tool.
