CoScale

CoScale is designed specifically to monitor container and microservices environments managed by Kubernetes ecosystem.

Icinga

Icinga is a world-class monitoring system. It can be used for most general monitoring situations. It is not a silver bullet, however, and there are instances where domain-specific monitoring systems are necessary. However, the output from those monitoring systems can be funneled into Icinga as a central monitoring and alerting system.

Pros

CoScale

  • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
  • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Icinga

  • Wealth of community-developed plugins.
  • Stable codebase.
  • Icinga 2 supports distributed monitoring.
  • Very performant, can support tens of thousands of checks per server.

Cons

CoScale

  • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
  • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Icinga

  • High learning curve, setting up Icinga from scratch can be a bit of a challenge starting out.
  • If the io2db process fails you UI stops updating, which can be very frustrating.
  • There is no simple mechanism for adding new hosts and services through the web UI, it's all very config-file based.

Icinga is a solid solution which does everything it promises. It is backwards compatible with most Nagios instances, making the transition very easy. Once you get the hang of installing new plugins and editing configuration files expanding its monitoring capabilities are easy.

Based on 1 answer
We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

Alternatives Considered

CoScale

CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

Icinga

Icinga is better than Nagios because of its nicer user interface. New Relic can monitor CPU/memory and disk usage, but it's more of a performance and application troubleshooting tool rather than monitoring

Return on Investment

CoScale

  • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
  • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Icinga

  • Icinga is free, but costs in initial setup manhours. This can be surprising, but it's still cheaper than other products.
  • The setup and maintenance requires a fairly adept sysadmin.
