Problems can happen anywhere - at the end user device, on the network, or across application infrastructures and networks. IT operations staff often know there's a problem but can't get to the right level of analysis quickly or easily enough. Frequently, expert staff must be taken off key projects in order to troubleshoot the issue.

IT operations teams need a performance management solution that provides visibility across the entire application delivery environment. They need intelligence into the end-user experience, application transactions, and network performance to quickly diagnose root cause before the enterprise is impacted.

Riverbed AppResponse joins together advanced application and transaction insight, comprehensive end-user experience monitoring, and deep network intelligence into a single appliance to provide total visibility into your application performance problems.

It helps you discover where and when bottlenecks are occurring so that you can troubleshoot problems faster, and it streamlines workflows and reporting to enable cross-team collaboration and put an end to finger pointing.

Use it to gain actionable insights to monitor and improve business-critical application performance and make users happy.

AppResponse passively monitors the network and collects packet, application, and transaction data for continuous monitoring and fast troubleshooting. Using high-speed packet acquisition and multi-stage analytic processing, it delivers powerful capabilities, such as automatic application discovery and rich application insights, end-user experience monitoring for web and non-web applications, and response time decomposition.

Moreover, it delivers real-time and historical application transaction analytics, VoIP and video quality monitoring, and deep network intelligence.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy interfacing with Wireshark or Riverbed Transaction Analyzer to view detailed packet data. Valuable Features:Ability to see end to end user, application,server, and network response time and throughput data. Good reporting andalerting mechanism. Easy interfacing with Wireshark or Riverbed TransactionAnalyzer to view detailed packet data. Easy to organize web page families,network device interface, and server response time and throughout into real-timeor historical views.Improvements to My Organization:We see trends developing and can get a fix in place before the customers notice. The database module has helped us spot troublesome queries. We can usually find within a few clicks if a performance issue is related to a specific server, the application, web page or network device. Scheduled reports provide historical data for our application and network teams.Room for Improvement:Need to bring back the NetFlow module for AppResponse.Use of Solution:Over 5 yearsDeployment Issues:None, very easy to get started.Stability Issues:NoScalability Issues:Not at all.Customer Service:Sales and Sale support have been very responsiveTechnical Support:AppResponse Support is excellent.Previous Solutions:BMC TrueSight. Easier to use and better functionality.Initial Setup:Setup was very easy.Implementation Team:We used a combination of in-house and Riverbed PS. Expertise was good.Other Advice:Creating a functional network map before implementation will insure you are getting the correct view of you network and applications.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AppResponse Xpert is a great solution for whoever is looking to for infrastructure troubleshooter. Valuable Features:End User Experience Monitoring: conversations, protocols but first of all the web transaction analysis feature with waterfall capabilities is now a fundamental tool for our NOC/SOC team.Improvements to My Organization:Any potential issue is now discovered by our NOC/SOC team before it impacts the end-user experience. We are currently monitoring the performance perceived by the end user accessing and using the strategic applications of our worldwide customers. Usually, a problem is analyzed from a variety of different viewpoints but never from the most important: the End User. Thanks to the Riverbed Steelcentral AppResponse technology our remote services are now focused on monitoring the End User "satisfaction" instead of watching only the infrastructure.Room for Improvement:We are working to improve SAP transactions monitoring capabilities. This feature will give us a great differentiator to our monitoring and managed services.Use of Solution:1 yearDeployment Issues:No. As any monitoring tool, the deployment is a process and it never ends.Stability Issues:Absolutely none.Scalability Issues:The 1200 and 2200 models are sufficient for any PMI. If you want to scale in terms of performances and features you have to consider the 3300.Technical Support:The support we had as of now is excellent.Previous Solutions:No, we didn't use any other NPM/APM solution before Riverbed, but we tested some competitors.Initial Setup:Again, the setup is easy but it has to be considered a never ending process as the infrastructure is, at the end, dynamic.Implementation Team:In houseOther Solutions Considered:AppDynamics, Fluke NetworksOther Advice:It's a great solution and we think it could be used in many different ways.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Riverbed partner August 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for strategic metrics and as a troubleshooting/analysis tool, but needs better integration with AppInternals Xpert Valuable Features:Appliance passively monitors network traffic. Ability to group transactions, great charts and correlation capabilities. Excellent for strategic metrics and as a troubleshooting/analysis tool. Thresholds and trap generation. Excellent protocol analytics out-of-the-box. Traffic capture warehouse. Good integration with AppTransaction Xpert (transaction analysis like wireshark) and Wireshark. Publishes reports. Some data accessible though API - can be integrated with existing management systems.Use of Solution:I began using ARX in 2008. I use it frequently as an APM analytic tool.Stability Issues:I've found these appliances to be very stableScalability Issues:Although the Director provides some centralized management and RPM Dashboards provides some degree of integration, each appliance stands alone in collection and analytical ability. The appliances come in rather large sizes, but if you have a large enterprise and you're looking to bring data feeds in from several locations, it will likely have to be served on several appliances.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We provide professional services replying and using the analytic functions for Riverbed customers. We are also a partner. September 29, 2014
