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.

Entuity

I think that if your organization is network-oriented (such as telecom or ISP) deploying Entuity should be considered a mandatory step. Big organizations will benefit from the ITSM (ticketing, monitoring and CMDB) integrations.
However, if your goal is to ensure that the server layer is monitored in great level (process and service monitoring, log parsing etc.) then Entuity will not suit your needs.

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

  • Great CMDB integration capabilities.
  • Good event management integrations.

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.

Entuity

  • Detailed server monitoring.
  • Detailed storage monitoring.

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.

Entuity support has always been quick to respond and the majority of the calls I had were resolved on the first call. In addition, the product documentation is easy to read and goes into great detail of how the product works. This is probably a reason why a support call is literally the last call for Entuity (no pun intended).

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.

Entuity

The list above shows you some of the products that Entuity replaces.
The good product and excellent support behind it make it a better choice from the admin's and EA's perspective. My customers have praised the short learning curve and the swift and professional support staff. From my own experience I can tell that this product is delivered with one of the finest sets of documentation I have ever seen.

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

Entuity

  • Reconciling multiple tools (netflow, configuration, monitoring and discovery) into one tool simplified the support agreement.
  • Root cause analysis (RCA) time has been greatly reduced thanks to having all information in a single interface.
  • Security of the network devices has improved thanks to the discovery provided by Entuity.
