Opsview Monitor

If you know Nagios or Nagios-like monitoring systems, OpsView will be really easy for you to learn and manage. Migrations process will be relatively easy. You're getting great U/I that will speed up adding new objects to the system and present data in a clear, organized way. In addition it's easy to create dedicated dashboards for your clients.

SolarWinds AppOptics

With the current set of features, AppOptics is a great option for startups that do not depend on downstream external services for their product. I have already recommended it to some friends working at other startups. I am rating it 8/10 instead of 10/10 because its monitoring of downstream services is inadequate. In our company, we have a monolithic application. So, we don't have an opinion on how it would operate in a service-oriented architecture.

Pros

Opsview Monitor

  • Easily extensible. We write many of our own monitoring plugins for Opsview and use open source Nagios community plugins as well
  • Quick to deploy. Don't need to worry about all of the dependencies that you need to with something like Nagios
  • It just works. Most of the housekeeping tasks are completely automated
  • Nice visualizations and dashboards

SolarWinds AppOptics

  • Easy to integrate with an application stack. Supports many. In my case, I just need the AppOptics client and client key to start integration with my application stack.
  • Provide real-time metrics like DB connection, query analysis, latency in API calls and other connections, response codes for various API's, etc.
  • We can also set thresholds based on use-cases and set up the alerts and publish one across various suitable channels.

Cons

Opsview Monitor

  • pricey
  • build in cloud monitoring packs need to be improved
  • smb version is missing some powerfull features

  • The only thing that I would add is the possibility to display every single query our servers receive to eventually analyze them and query through them. We could also generate nice visualizations from that. Right now I believe we can only see averages.

AppOptics has performed well for all of the major functions we have needed it for. Especially when it comes to tracking down response time issues and researching app performance for different pages and different times of day we have been able to do everything we need to. We know there are some more advanced features that could help us in more niche areas, but haven't had the time to delve deeper into using or setting them up.

Alternatives Considered

Opsview Monitor

Nagios and Zabbix - Opsview is much easier to setup and operate than both of them.SolarWinds Orion - Opsview is much more economical

SolarWinds AppOptics

SolarWinds AppOptics serves a specific use case for us--diving down on the application layer to identify root causes of latency. It does not offer the same use case as SignalFx, which offers metrics for the overall service and integration for custom metrics. AppOptics also does not keep logs of your service or enable searches on them like Kibana. It serves a different use case than the products listed above.
