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

Spotlight is great when you need a tool to give a quick look at a SQL server as a whole. It gives you the ability to see a lot of things, which can be vital in diagnosing problems or identifying stressors. Less great is the open-end of some of the diagnoses it makes, and things it identifies as "problems" (unless you love users coming to you and saying something like "Spotlight says there's a problem with our page latch!!!").
Read full review Pros 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 Read full review I love the main page that provides a color code list of all the servers so I know very quickly where to focus my attention first. I love how easy it is to configure new notifications. I love how easy it is to configure a new server to monitor. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review Have not found any issues at this point.

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.

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

Though our support needs have been minimal, we have gotten good responses when we have needed it.
Read full review Implementation Rating
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.

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.

I think Dell is better with its dashboard and ease of use, but
is better at customization. We used Spotlight at my previous company, and SQLSentry at my current company.

Agent deployment is easily integrated into our workflow. Adding the agent to new servers is quick and painless
Read full review Return on Investment 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 Read full review We have not encountered any issues and continue to keep Spotlight's version current. Very simple to set up and add databases. The only thing that has to happen to the database is that a user ID needs to exist. Read full review ScreenShots
