Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

Error detection, outage detection, throughput monitoring, percentage monitoring are the scenarios that we’re currently using [Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)] for and they are well suited. I believe it is less appropriate when a precise number is required for monitoring. Because sometimes discrepancies occur because of metric collectors. For example, 100 metric is reported at time t, but on the charts, it’s split as 60 for time t and 40 for t1.

Pros

CoScale (discontinued)

  • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
  • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

  • Easy to create dashboards with different graphs and metrics
  • Very good APM with distributed traces
  • Nice mapping feature for a graphical presentation of the microservices and connections
  • Very easily to connect with our infra in AWS

Cons

CoScale (discontinued)

  • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
  • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

  • I'd say better advice on how best organizations can tailor it to suit their needs
  • I've seen newcomers face a steeper learning curve, and hence better documentation
  • I'm not a big fan of how active/inactive metrics can be told apart

We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

Alternatives Considered

CoScale (discontinued)

CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

SignalFX is a strong competitor in the monitoring SaaS space and provide the basic necessities for production grade monitoring and alerting. Other solutions may offer easier adoption and other helpful features, but will have trouble competing for cost for organizations that have bandwidth to tweak metric ingress.

Return on Investment

CoScale (discontinued)

  • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
  • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

  • Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring helps us to detect and monitor potential problem[s] (before they happen).
  • Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring helps us to fatly understand [the] root cause of a problem in the system (when we have the right metrics),.
  • We can't easily monitor our client usage with Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring.
