    Datadog

    Datadog is a no-brainer for any environment that relies on multiple servers. Even for one server, it's so much better to use for monitoring and alert capability than anything else I remember looking at before we started using Datadog. Teams can even use it to track their progress of investigating an alert so multiple people aren't unknowingly looking into the same exact issue unnecessarily.

    Whenever you have to access data sources from more than one database engine provider, you should consider using DbVisualizer for the task. Switching between multiples IDE consumes time and resources (memory), and you also need to learn menus, shortcuts, etc., for each IDE, while using DbVisualizer allows you to work consistently no matter which database engine you are connecting. You can use it to simply navigate through data structures, write SQL sentences or even create new tables and views, develop stored procedures, etc.

    Pros

    Datadog

    • APIs, the ability to interact with the data we pull into data dog is key. We port the information over to Servicenow, so the ability to pull everything into DataDog, then Servicenow, is a key component of our success here at Wayfair.
    • Simple Interface - clean, useful, effective. Allows users to use DataDog for one reason, get work done.
    • Lightweight agent on hosts

    • Timed queries that add their result to the result grid for every execution are helpful. Creation of graphs also extremely helpful.
    • Query history and auto-recover feature makes sure we don't lose our queries.
    • Actions like exporting grids to Excel or other tools is a very easy task.

    Cons

    Datadog

    • User interface could be improved in some areas, looking for host information and the agent install link takes a bit of time.
    • Configuration of the agent is generally done via a config file which is a pro and a con. It would be nice to have some UI to configure various agent options.
    • Billing isn't entirely straightforward, they could use more reports to figure out the source of your monthly costs.

    • When exporting databases to jpg or png image, it should be possible to print banner type without losing quality and legibility
    • Be able to define sections or a set of tables with an identifier of colors that help a better visualization or understanding of large databases
    • Implement a cooperative mode for work teams

    We never had problems with it. It is able to connect to all data sources (Oracle, Informix, DB2, SQL Server) that we currently use.

    Usability

    Datadog

    The user interface is quite intuitive with the exception of the network map. As a deployer of software, it is trivial to setup.

    Menus are simple and well organized. You can use the same shortcuts no matter which database engine you are connecting to. Configuration of data source connections is simple while keeping all required options.

    Support Rating

    Datadog

    The support team usually gets it right. We did have a rather complicate issue setting up monitoring on a domain controller. However, they are usually responsive and helpful over chat. The downside would be I don’t think they have any phone support. If that is important to you this might not be a good fit.

    Datadog

    We are still trying other products, but people still like Datadog. After setting up a dashboard, it's great for monitoring instances on Datadog. Also, the DevOps team had a good time setting up Datadog. It means Datadog was way easier to set up compared to those others.

    DbVisualizer provides a good value when compared against other 3rd party products with similar features as well as products with similar functionality made by the database vendors. The user interface is good and user friendly / intuitive and easy to learn. It doesn't take too long for an experienced DBA / database developer to come up to speed.

    Return on Investment

    Datadog

    • One of our critical production databases went down a couple of weeks back. Just because we had the Datadog monitoring enabled for that database, Datadog sent the alerts to PagerDuty and we were instantly notified via pager and email alert. We could act right away and bring up the database within a few mins.
    • Ability to create custom screenboards have allowed us to track the critical and warning alerts in front of our eyes all the time

    • The pricing for DbVisualizer is fair.
    • The tool also succeeds in non-functional areas I find important, such as being able to install and/or run without requiring administrator privileges on Windows.
    • Has capability to generate diagrams and models from existing databases which is very helpful in reverse engineering.
