    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.

    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

    Micro Focus

    • Alerts can be configured as per business requirement.
    • It can take remedial action, when defined for a particular situation.
    • Severity, priority of tickets which are created upon a trigger can be well defined.
    • The teams which need to be alerted can be configured in the tool itself, in case of any event.

    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.

    • 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.

      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.

      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.

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

      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.

      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

      • 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.
