SolarWinds announced SolarWinds AppOptics Dev Edition, a free version of its SaaS infrastructure and application performance management (APM) solution, AppOptics—part of the SolarWinds APM Suite.

AppOptics Dev Edition offers the same rich features of the full AppOptics solution in a scaled-back version well-suited for development environments, enabling technology professionals at any stage in the APM journey to test, optimize, and troubleshoot business applications before they go live in production operations.

“The need to manage custom business applications is on the rise, placing new pressures on tech pros to monitor the performance and availability of apps in hybrid and cloud-native environments. SolarWinds is helping tech pros ease this burden and overcome the cost and complexity traditionally associated with most APM tools available on the market by offering free access to its AppOptics APM features and functionality,” said Denny LeCompte, SVP and GM, Application Management, SolarWinds. “Whether a tech pro is just getting started with APM or if they’re looking for a means to test and troubleshoot apps before production, the AppOptics Dev Edition provides real value for a variety of business application use cases.”

Designed to deliver end-to-end visibility down to the transaction level, AppOptics helps users prove where and when end-user experiences do not meet intended-for service levels through performance information for each element of a request, providing insight into the root cause of performance bottlenecks. AppOptics supports custom applications in hybrid and cloud-native environments with broad language support (.Net, Java, PHP, Python, Scala, Node.js, Go, and Ruby).

AppOptics Dev Edition highlights include:

- Comprehensive troubleshooting: Combine distributed tracing, live code profiling, and exception tracking to quickly identify performance issues down to the line of code. In addition, with automated log context tracking, tech pros can view the logs related to a particular trace to get full understanding of an issue.

- Infrastructure monitoring: Measure infrastructure, application, and business performance—from custom on-premises to highly distributed cloud applications—by incorporating metrics that matter most to assessing infrastructure impact.

- Dev environment focus: Determine if the application in development has the appropriate host and/or container resources to support your application before going live. Quickly recognize if you have exceeded thresholds that could be impacting application availability and performance using color-coded heatmaps that provide visualizations of hosts and containers, as well as comprehensive alerting on key resource and performance metrics across the stack.

AppOptics Dev Edition comes with up to five traces per minute, 100 metrics, three hosts, and six containers.
