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.

Micro Focus SiteScope

SiteScope is definitely well suited in an HP server environment. It is also well suited for virtual server environments. It is also well suited for those who are happy with email and text based message alerting.It may not be appropriate in other environments where monitoring physical components is critical. Because HP SiteScope does not monitor certain physical components, it does fall short of being able to be a "one stop shop solution" in regard to monitoring. It is not well suited for those looking for logic in how alerts are sent and cascade to other people or groups.

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

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.
Kevin Van Heusen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • Sitescope is particularly used for infrastructure monitoring. Other kinds of monitors cannot be set using HP sitescope.
  • Sitescope cannot have graphs like splunk which is why we have splunk as well which is an additional cost for the company.
  • We can't have a direct regex operations on data inside HP sitescope. We need to have the logs placed as a single log and then do that.

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.

Can't really answer this. Setup was easy and no support has really been used at this point.

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.

Micro Focus SiteScope

SiteScope can be easily deployed. It required less care feeding as it is quite stable. Compared to other products which are agent-based, HP SiteScope can monitor remotely without any issues. We selected HP Sitescope as it was easier to manage compared to the other tools which require more human resources to manage.

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

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • Sitescope does exactly what it was purchased for. It may take some time to set it up but once its set up it is a rock solid product.
