    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.

    It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

    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

    • It provides contextual information so you can reproduce any issue and validate a fix on test environments.
    • It allows us to identify misbehaving application code or business objects that cause application slowdowns and crashes.

    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.

    germain CRT

    • Email alerts configuration is not user-friendly
    • Tuning recommendations that are provided by germain CRT are not always right.

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

    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.

    We cannot have any complaints regarding support provided for our deployments by germain CRT. We had some worries that with such big ecosystems of plugins issues are imminent, but it really only takes a few minutes for you to add a new plugin and germain CRT support team is happy to do it for you.

    Alternatives Considered

    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.

    germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.

    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

    • germain CRT real-time insights helped us to improve our product UX and technology performance.
    • We significantly decreased cost of downtime and downtime itself.
