Nagios Log Server facilitates the ability to search all entries of logs in a quick and easy way. Beyond that, it has allowed us to configure alerts for notification when there are potential threats (may they be security threats or only application-side problems), and to filter the data for audits and compliance.

New Relic
New - relic is well suited if you want to analyse the performance of your services and you want to improve it. Integration with multiple services with same account gives a clear picture of flow of your APIs if you have micro-service architecture. New-relic is less appropriate when you want to do logging of your system. As it does not emits every single calls

  • Log auditing.
  • Server monitoring.

New Relic
  • gives us an monitoring of all our underlying servers and also we can configure some alerts upon them like CPU and memory alerts.
  • Kubernetes cluster monitoring with new relic for EKS gives us and minute details of our cluster utilisation like node usage, pods memory request and limits
  • Network traceability for each and every request with response time analysis is great we can trace which component is responsible for generating response delay
  • log managements of the logs the infrastructure is generating we can view logs through there only

Cons
Nagios Enterprises
  • A bit hard to install and configure.
  • High price.

New Relic
  • I would like to see sort of simulator inside the user interface, that way we can send requests directly from it to test some configuration instead of setting up a test environment in our end.
  • It would be nice if the data ingestion can be filtered by APM's. That way we can know which application is ingested most data.
  • It would be nice if we could ingest logs (apache, system logs, and other logs) and correlate them with the APM.

The only issue that we have had with New Relic is that the price might be a little expensive for smaller companies. The amount of data you store in New Relic impacts the cost, and can get away from you if you don't work closely with the vendor. Overall though the application is top notch.

As an engineer, New Relic has been very quick and easy for me to pick up/install/use. It has been less easy for some of the less technical-minded folks in our organization and their UI still is inconsistent multiple years after refactoring their platform to be New Relic One.

Support Rating
Nagios Enterprises
Nagios support is decent. Nothing bad to say about them, but nothing extraordinary too. We mostly asked them questions instead of actively asking them to change or fix things for us. The response time is OK, commonly you can get a response in the same day. You can also call, but they are available only during US office hours.

There are times I feel that the initial support is lacking. And in some cases the automated responses of not hearing anything are annoying if the reason why there has been no movement is because we are still waiting to hear back from NR support. So, i think they should loose the automation as it can seem disingenuous

It's better to start by implementing New Relic in one project and test everything. Try to follow best recommended practices and read all the official documentation. Everything seems well tested. Then, start by installing agents to the rest of your projects and keep a close look to all logs and metrics New Relic gives you.

Windows Event Log doesn't have 10% of the capabilities of Nagios Log Server. No real-time alerts, no scheduling, no external plugins or APIs. Nothing. The only advantage is that it is a native Windows application.

New Relic is the most full-featured offering that we've found, and is incredibly easy to start using with a PHP app. The New Relic agent is installed as a PHP extension so it is able to monitor and track the performance of any PHP app being run by the web server. Other tools required the installation and setup of a PHP dependency at the application level.

Return on Investment
Nagios Enterprises
  • We could react in way less time to a lot of potential outages since we started using it.

New Relic
  • Less time debugging issues or letting issues go unknown
  • We know of issues before our customers
  • One common tool for logs, apm, infrastructure, and most alerting. Makes for easier developer experience.
  • Cost is expensive and is one of highest engineering spends
