Foglight

Strengths [Foglight]
  • Monitoring, Alerting and Management of on-prem virtualization and physical servers
  • Historical trending and baselining are excellent and being able to compare a problem period against the same sets of data for a period when there was no issue is especially helpful as part of troubleshooting.
  • Ease of use for end users is appreciated
Weaknesses [of Foglight]
  • Creation and management of custom monitors is a developer level activity requiring Groovy skillset
  • Less useful for management of an environment where there is a large amount of custom implementations
  • Commitment to longevity of cartridges/packs for specific subsystems
  • Ability to create custom schedules/alerts/escalations is only available via a 3rd party product (from a former Quest developer) and is not particularly easy to manage/manipulate
  • Lack of API accessibility for external integrations to other analytics (splunk, etc.)

Pros

Foglight

  • Database monitoring
  • Database management suite
  • Customization (both monitors and dashboards)
Aletha Diaz | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • Server-less platform that is automatically managed
  • Pay per use - scale to zero results in an extremely cheap total cost of ownership.
  • There is no need for you to set the size, deploy, or scale container clusters yourself.
  • Auto scaling is always helpful and easy to use.

Cons

Foglight

  • While the Linux agents mostly work out of the box with the remote node receiving the push, some newer Linux distributions may require some tweaking of the agent install script due to upstream software package changes.
  • The canned reports are adequate for high-level overviews but I would like to be able to further customize them to include specific information from the monitored nodes.
  • I wish there was an application to migrate the Foglight NMS application and database (which reside on the same server) to a new server or VM. They make you open a support case to accomplish that for which you need an active maintenance contract.

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • It is limited to 100 apps per project[.]
  • Documentation - This can be more detailed and exhaustive. It might be intentional as the complexities are hidden away or abstracted to give an easy start for developers.

Alternatives Considered

Foglight

We were previously using Oracle to monitor resources across servers and networks. In general, that product was alright but the Foglight alerts are far superior to Oracle. The business goal of using Foglight is really to minimize business interruption costs so the faster and more noticeable the alerts, the better the product is at solving our problems.

Support for unlimited functions and 1000 concurrent executions2. Support for GitHub deployment3. Support for ~50MB code size4. Scalability options5. Support for a range of language including Python, Ruby, Java, .Net, Go and Swift

Return on Investment

Foglight

  • Great value for vmWare monitoring.
  • Helps our eCommerce team to troubleshoot issues and make end user experience better.
Anderson Costa | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • [One] positive is that we have one tool to learn (and a simple one) for all kinds of deployment. We need less people to maintain the system.
  • We have saved a lot of time on trouble shooting. It's clear how it works. It's "just" kubernetes..
