Scout does a fantastic job with all of the modules and it is easy to navigate. A nice addition was the cyber security module. I can not think of a less appropriate scenario.

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

Scout

  • I specifically use the risk assessment module and do risk assessments on any new product we introduce into our network or any company that we are thinking about taking on as a client.
  • I also use the vendor management module for any due diligence that comes up with a new company or a company that we may use once and then not use again.

  • 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

Scout

  • There are not many areas that I would change in Scout. If I were to change anything it would be just to add a description of when I would use a report, such as managers, board of directors, or regulators.

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

Alternatives Considered

Scout

I've already explained why this product beats Excel hands down in time and money. I also love the way it sends you an email when you forget any due diligence or testing that needs to be done.

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

Scout

  • I like that everything is in one place. We used to use Excel spreadsheets and it was very hard to keep everything in one place or to find something specific. Now it is very easy finding what you're looking for with this all in one solution.
  • This solution pays for itself with the time saved from not looking at spreadsheets.
  • When the regulators come and they ask for a assessment I can get it for them in very short order.

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.
