Recommended software if you are looking for a monitoring service

What do you like best?

The best thing I like about this product is that it provides a complete solution to monitor and analyze data. Librato offers various services which help to understand data and offers wonderful visualizations. In addition, it provides services which can provide notifications of activity alerts on various metrics when they are done the processing.

What do you dislike?

Librato team collaboration is not so good from my what I have heard. The team works independently and often provide less frequent updates. It would be difficult if the customer has a client to answer to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My company chose this product because it met client requirements. I cannot say that it goes same with your company too. There are many products on the market which offers similar service. Do proper research before considering this product.

Review of Librato

What do you like best?

I like that you do not need to install anything when using this program. As a not very technically savvy person, I get really nervous when I need to download new applications to my computer that I haven't heard of, so it's not to not feel as threatened by not needing to download anything to use it. Librato can also do the same things as its competitors, but has a very reasonable price in comparison. The interface is very simple so it makes it very user friendly.

What do you dislike?

I think that lots of little improvements could be made to this application, and knowing how to make things more advanced would be helpful. If you are going for cheap, this is your application, but there are some others that are more advanced than this. It can be hard sometimes to set up and figure out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would take the time to look at some of the competitors as well and determine if it will satisfy your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this for data configuration and analysis in a group setting. I would in a research laboratory so we use this application to consolidate and review the data for the entire lab. It was an easier transition in learning since some of the lab members had been using the application for some time before the rest of us starting using it. I would suggesting finding someone to help you learn it.

What Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Another way to measure cloud metrics

What do you like best?

Each task is not more than 2 clicks away, I like the fact that the interface gets right down to business with alerts and attributes tab.

What do you dislike?

Not the easiest to use configuration and setup. Not as good as NPM or WUG, but it gets the job done at a lower cost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are an e-commerce company with the primary focus on protecting our data. I like the fact that this is pay per use based on the number of data streams.

High potential monitoring software

What do you like best?

Bargain priced data monitoring tool which provides many ways to analyze this information. The notifications make it really convenient because it will allow you to know before something happens. Data analysts in our group work together using this software, easily learning and maintaining of it with simplicity.

What do you dislike?

The different pricing options can be rather difficult to choose from, even though the models are straight forward. It just can be different to choose which one would work best for you. Also the web interface is very simple and easy which is good but may need some improvement in terms of customization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest just giving it a try, it really has a lot of potential for you at a price point that's more than far comparing to other competitors. Could definitely see this software working at every level whether you are a small business or large, could see being the same amount of help at either.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Real time cloud monitoring of data and metrics at all levels of the business. There are many competitors in this space, we just found Librato to be the best match for us. It is fairly price once reviewing the options and really does get you everything you need from it.

Graduated to Datadog

What do you like best?

* Simple interface makes finding things easier

* Composite metric functions are neat

What do you dislike?

* Other services are starting to innovate better and faster (like Datadog).

* Using dashboards is better than spaces, but explore mode and drag-to-zoom made spaces easier to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are more players in this space than a few years ago, and Librato is a definite contender, but try other services to see if they fit your needs more appropriately.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Database and website monitoring. We've found that it helped us for awhile, but in the end (after about 4 years), was too costly so we went with a similar product that unlocked more integrations.

Excellent hosted solution for application and system metrics.

What do you like best?

Simple APIs, good dashboards, the Slack and PagerDuty integrations work well.

What do you dislike?

Complex charts or certain types of data points can get rendered weird when you have a limited amount or infrequent data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using it to monitor and alert on system, network, application, and business level metrics.
