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.

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

I suggest you try [Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)] at least once. Afterward, it
will make you feel relaxed. It really works and gives you more than your
expectations. It is equipped with multiple latest and advanced tools that will
fully satisfy you. So obviously there will be no need to concern other devices. It is
an excellent data management solution and also it is the best monitoring device than
any other.

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

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

  • Measure the time and performance of queries made in a database
  • Integration with tools like Prometheus with the aim of storing information based on time
  • Monitor our databases in the cloud, as well as optimize the performance of the database, improving the usability of customer applications

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)

  • Sometimes it creates problems while serving a huge number of servers but I am sure its efficient team will overcome this problem soon and with its rapid advancements there will surely be more latest and advanced alerting options.
  • Truly speaking this is a great invention with very few shortcomings. I never face any dependency issues.

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

I am using PMM for a long time now and the Dashboard provides a great overview for general server health and law. You get to watch if there are many queries when you get a problem. Time-based analysis for MySQL and MongoDB servers to confirm that your data works as efficiently as possible. We could improve database performance significantly.

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.

Percona has a history of being good at providing really informative materials in form of blog post, documentation, webinars or conference presentations. T is also true to the Percona Monitoring and Management, you can find excellent source of information on their site or on the forum. Support tickets are also handled well.

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.

Vividcortex is nice but is costly.
Datadog loses for me on the UI front and, of course, it will be a charged product.
Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) has been best blend of technologies and is supported by the Percona community very well.

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)

  • This is a matchless tool for keeping us alert with all amazing monitoring capabilities. Almost all of its features and functionalities help us in achieving our goals by enhancing success rates.
  • Customer support is responsible.
  • Its performance is mind-blowing.
