AppNeta

AppNeta is well suited any place where there are customer facing applications where speed/efficiency determines the customer perception of business service.

Zabbix

Zabbix is a great solution when monitoring a majority of Linux servers, in my experience. I have never personally used it with Microsoft Windows servers and I'm not sure that I would recommend doing so based on my lack of familiarity with doing so.In any case, I find Zabbix incredibly useful if you want a clean UI that lets you monitor absolutely anything that you could possibly imagine. The ability to set up "Templates" and "UserParameter"s within Zabbix are easily my favorite features.

Pros

  • AppNeta provides detailed application availability & uptime.
  • AppNeta provides great longitudinal data regarding how the applications perform including an overall grade or "AppDex."
  • AppNeta sends notifications of service downtime that aids in technical dispatch.

  • Single Pane view
  • Wealth of plugins available to then customise for alerting

Cons

  • AppNeta could bundle all of their applications together. We received a demo for TraceView which allows insight on specific DB & API calls which is very valuable, but was not part of our original agreement/pricing structure.

  • UI is getting updated, but still dated a bit.
  • Doesn't easily accept unsolicited data like Datadog, Prometheus, etc. can. Everything has to be pre-configured or discovered, making it hard to just send it metrics from code.
  • Integration with AWS, Docker, Java, etc. is via 3rd parties or outside tools, so while the agent is great, it needs more reach.

Alternatives Considered

We currently use Nagios/GroundWork and Cacti to perform network monitoring. AppNeta's UI is far superior.

The choice was made about 6 years ago, but nothing recent has called that into question. I don't really remember the details of the original choice.

Return on Investment

No answers on this topic
  • A 5 year "Linux team only" implementation leveraged automatic recovery scripts to eliminate a huge number of off hour wake-up tickets. Many problems were detected and automatically remediated before the old monitoring system ever detected the problem.
  • The ability to monitor almost anything you can imagine and script.
  • Quick one-off items and triggers can be deployed in a crisis.
  • Leveraging Puppet and The Foreman for server build and Zabbix for monitoring made it possible for system administrators to go from supporting about 40 servers each to 120 or more.
