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

  • Slow query identification
  • Alerting

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.

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

  • It would be interesting to add support to more monitoring tools and improve the notification system so that there are more customization options.

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

I really like Grafana (the frontend of the PMM), but there are some minor things that sometimes don't click. For example the main dashboard lists all machines automatically, this page can be really slow when you have many instances(one can change the default landing page though). Sometimes the interface is not super responsive when making an overview for a lot of servers at once. Otherwise it's really well planned, logical and beautiful

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.

PMM Is community-supported, I have not used customer support so far. But as usual percona team is always receptive on feedback

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.

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

1. SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor is a good choice but has its own costly price. Percona Monitoring and Management is stacking up against it in managing hundreds of databases and storing them.2.Datadog is also paid plus not Open source. PMM is free open source and easier to use.

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

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

  • Allowed us to trace and identify a few of the patterns in the statuses
  • Identified slow queries for fixtures
