As the AppInternals SME for the last 14 years, it's about time I joined the Splash discussion!
I've given a lot of presentations about how time-series charts often hide the subtle behaviors in the raw data.
Here's a quick & fun example of why AppInternals' Big-Data, no-sampling approach to APM is so powerful.
Coarse data hides a lot of detail:
AppInternals' 1-second granular data reveals a lot more of the subtle patterns occurring:
But A LOT can happen in even a SINGLE SECOND!
Only TruePlot tells the complete story:
...and before you chuckle and think this was photoshopped:
These are actual Big-Data APM transactions in AppInternals!
Hopefully this fun example illustrates how powerful AppInternals can be at exposing very complex behaviors in our applications.
Many thanks to Golan Shem-Tov for encouraging me to post this!
