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.

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

DbVisualizer

  • 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.

DbVisualizer

  • 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

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

Our experience working with their support found them to be helpful and quick to respond. Also, as many of their integrations are open source, improvements we desired could be tracked and even driven by us. Their documentation is excellent and makes integrating their tooling simple and makes standing up monitoring for new application a quick and painless process.

Alternatives Considered

Datadog

New Relic APM is a great application performance monitoring tool, but the agent was producing an increased load on our system compared to Datadog. Datadog also gives the flexibility of going outside of the boundaries of the application and looking at system performance as well, which can have a large impact on application performance.
Stephen Groat | TrustRadius Reviewer

DbVisualizer

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

DbVisualizer

  • The institution is of the governmental type, therefore we do not measure the commercial impact of using this tool
  • The impact on the benefit of the population is always positive with tools that streamline our processes, and DbVisualizer is one of the best
