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 great for monitoring protocols like HTTP, FTP, SSH, SMTP, SNMP, etc. It also has great features like visual analysis, customizable dashboards and system "templates". Features like auto-discovery and auto-registration let us manage infrastructure on the fly. The auto-registration function is very handy for automatic monitoring of a new AWS host. When a new cloud host is spun up, Zabbix will automatically start collecting performance and availability data of that node. On the other hand, Zabbix tuning can take a bit of time. You have to learn by experience. It could also improve its agent's footprint on machines. Zabbix is less appropriate if you have a huge, constantly changing infrastructure such as autoscaling. Application level monitoring is better done by other tools out there like Datadog.

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.

  • Monitoring performance indicators like CPU, memory, network, disk space and processes can be done easily with Zabbix agent, which is available for Linux, UNIX and Windows platforms.
  • Zabbix can gather stats like disk failures, temperature and voltage from hardware through IPMI, thus ensuring uptime and reduces risk.
  • Zabbix lets you integrate it with your custom checks. You can write your own check scripts in Bash, Python or Perl and integrate it with Zabbix.

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.
Richard Phung profile photo
  • Zabbix has a steep learning curve and doesn't have a very intuitive and user-friendly interface.
  • Zabbix is resource hungry. It uses a DB to store all the stats and configuration and this can grow exponentially depending on the number of hosts you are monitoring.
  • Zabbix doesn't have a very thorough documentation, so you have to search for issues and ask the Zabbix community at times.

Alternatives Considered

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

More extensive and customizable than SaaS solutions. Much less learning curve than Nagios. Cost is very much lower than SaaS monitoring especially at scales over 1000 hosts ($15,000/month for SaaS!!) Templating systems allows for easy management and monitoring of groups of similar hosts. Not as 'pretty' as SaaS providers, but much more customizable

Return on Investment

No answers on this topic
  • Sound monitoring solution for very little cost out-of-the box
  • New trends and predictions functions allows us to maintain AWS MSP Standing without the purchase of SaaS monitoring solutions
  • Template and Autoregistration speeds deployment vs tools like Nagios
