SignalFx Infrastructure Monitoring

Overall Satisfaction with Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (formerly SignalFx)

As the engineering team, we use Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring mainly to monitor the application usage and system load (DevOps) together. We do share some metrics with other teams within the organization (marketing, BizDev, Product, and so on) mainly to understand our user usage and main flow.
  • Easy integration with the code and infrastructure.
  • Easy to define new (and complex) metrics.
  • Advance alerts mechanize.
  • Better integration with our clients (native mobile clients SDKs will be great).
  • A way to easily tag filters and move them across metrics/formula.
  • Alert system to easy false [alarm] and hard to configure.
  • Be able to have group more dimensions (and have more values on each).
  • 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.
Being a SAS reduce[s] our infrastructure is the main reason for using Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring.

We do monitor our infrastructure using Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, and it is the main reason and purpose of using it.
IMO ramping up my team and understand Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring is not an easy task. However, managing the quotas and team management is relatively easy.
We do get [too] many false alarms when we usage outlier detection and smart monitoring. Those days we prefer to use more [simple] alerting mechanized (which are pretty sad). I hope that while receiving alarms I'll be able to set it as "false alarm" so Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring algorithm will not trigger on those cases again.
Monitor our application usage and system load.
