Overall Satisfaction with Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

Percona Monitoring and Management has helped in monitoring thousand of database servers "MySQL" in one place which has decreased the complexity of our system. I like to do an Advanced Configuration, there is more option available to customize. I think the most valuable and secure features are the warning critical levels. For example, in one case we were looking to alert of CPU usage - and if it's over 60% in an average period of time then it's not entrusting, and if it's over 90% it's critical, which you can specify the values that are best for your application. It's easy to use and deploy with a Beautiful GUI with Grafana and has Zabbix integration.
  • Everything has its graphs by category
  • Easy enough to customized and deploy
  • Very in depth metrics for MySQL, DBaaS, ProxySQL
  • PMM alerting system should be updated and improved
  • In some categories you cant grasp 25% of information
  • Great for MySQL Insights
  • Database internals Alerts
  • Its helps to give in depth view to Dev and DBA
  • Datadog and SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor (formerly VividCortex)
1. SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor is a good choice but has its own costly price. Percona Monitoring and Management is stacking up against it in managing hundreds of databases and storing them.
2.Datadog is also paid plus not Open source. PMM is free open source and easier to use.
