Active Database Software
This is a good framework to use if your project requires frequent database queries. The product is made for both complete amateurs and seasoned experts. Prompt, courteous, and expert assistance; any problems are addressed and fixed without delay. Relatively inexpensive Inadequate, if there are new people involved, delays due to a lack of documentation are likely, and issues with code completion may arise.

Grafana Labs
Grafana is a one stop solution for all application monitoring needs. In our organisation, we use nodeJs. We run it using pm2. Since we didn't use Grafana it was hard for us to know if an app has stopped working unless we find it ourselves because our other app components were failing, or someone called us up and told about the situation. We were already using Grafana for monitoring our Ubuntu servers, but we hadn't had set it up for our app monitoring. Somehow we decided to monitor our nodeJs app with Grafana. It's a really good decision we made. We used Grafana nodeJs module "prom-client" for our node app which brought us relief from app failing situations. Since we have implemented Grafana for our Node app, it has helped us to monitor every health aspect of our node app. Now we have set up alerts based on heap-memory, so when heap memory goes beyond a set threshold we get notified and take the right steps ultimately saving our app from crashing and of course from losing business and reputation.

I have used Flutter to begin and with flutter you need learn a language called Dart which is not needed with AQB, which is the main reason for us to pick Active Query Builder as a choice over Flutter. AQB supports all the merchant SQL databases with native syntax support, query optimizations and more

Grafana has a direct plugin to Icinga monitoring solution and allowed for easy configuration for us. At the time of implementation, other services did not have such an integration. As we already had a very customized and heavily introduced monitoring solution in place, we needed settings that could plug into the system quickly and efficiently. This was the case with Grafana and allowed us to have all the integrations we needed with services such as Icinga
