"Being able to bridge two indispensable tools such as AppDynamics and Splunk
Enterprise is absolutely essential to our day-to-day operations," said John
Martin, Sr. Director of Production Engineering at "We use
AppDynamics to help us identify performance hotspots, and once those hotspots
are identified, we move into Splunk Enterprise to help us correlate this
information with machine data from our infrastructure. The ability to go into
one of these tools and click my way into one or the other at that exact point
in time for an issue that I'm researching is just fantastic."

Whereas AppDynamics is renowned for its ability to identify application
performance hotspots in minutes, Splunk is celebrated for contextualizing
operational intelligence from machine data such as log files, events, and
