Request Metrics is great for small web development teams that want to make fast web applications. It was quick for us to get started and we could use the reports right away without having to read through documentation. If you just need to get some performance metrics, Request Metrics is perfect. It would not be so good for a larger team or a complex backend application as it is pretty limited in what it can measure.

Snowplow Insights has been by far one of the best programs to better track and store each of the data for events and product expansion, the versatility of this program makes it an immediate and real-time solution for development of each of its users, I recommend it for its price and quality of execution in my work.

Snowplow
  • The amount of options and information that this program presents can be a bit overwhelming for users new to running this program.
  • I have the duty to warn that the free versions of this program are not really effective, we have put it to the test and they always leave us a lot to be desired, we do not recommend them.

We also consider Speedcurve and Calibre for monitoring. Speedcurve was really nice, but the reports were slow. We had to wait a lot to get information. It was also out of our budget and would require extra justification to use it. Calibre was also nice, but the numbers were based on synthetic rather than real user performance. We felt that this wasn't as helpful for us.

Twilio Segment is a powerful alternative to Snowplow Insights, but ultimately Snowplow Insights is marginally better, but with a largely reduced cost which is extremely important to us
