SignalFx Infrastructure Monitoring

Overall Satisfaction with Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring

The whole organization is using it to monitor our applications: CPU usage, memory consumption, sometimes JVM metrics. Mostly we use it to alert us when applications go down.
  • It’s very customizable and accepts any metric.
  • Customer support is quick and good quality.
  • Easy to create graphs and detectors.
  • Accumulates alerts from terminated EC2 instances and then sends false/incorrect alerts when another instance uses the same IP.
  • Documentation is sometimes hard to understand. Could use more examples.
  • Reduced downtime.
  • Caused us to get a lot of spam when we redeployed apps and old instances stopped sending metrics. Muting alerts solves this, but people often forget to do it or do it incorrectly.
  • Helped us find historical info about instances/apps.
SignalFx is similar to Datadog, but I don’t have enough experience with Datadog to compare them.

It would probably work much better for static servers, not ephemeral VMs like EC2 instances.
