Provides real-time alerts and has efficient features for incident management
We have integrated Coralogix with Slack and other tools, which has helped us receive real-time alerts. We don't have to constantly monitor the tool because it generates alerts and pushes them to us, providing notifications on Slack. This enhancement has strengthened our security, fulfilling our need when searching for such a tool. Numerous data monitoring tools are available, but Coralogix somehow fine-tunes our policies and effectively supports our teams. This SaaS platform utilizes machine learning for behavioral analysis of logs, yielding the results we need. For instance, there was a scenario where we received extension logs that were difficult to interpret. However, we obtained the analysis with the help of the product.

Great monitors and APM with helpful Terraform support
Delta traces on the Golang profiler are extremely expensive concerning memory utilization. In a Kubernetes environment where we would like to set per-pod memory allocations as low as possible, the overhead of that profiler feature is prohibitive. In one case, our pods (which were provisioned to target 250 MB and max at 500 MB memory) got stuck in a crash loop due to out-of-memory, which was caused entirely by the delta profiles feature of the profiler. Multistep Datadog synthetics lack the feature of basic arithmetic. For our use case, performing basic arithmetic on the output of previous steps to produce input for subsequent steps would be extremely useful.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"A non-tech person can easily get used to it."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"The best feature of this solution allows us to correlate logs, metrics and traces."
"Numerous data monitoring tools are available, but Coralogix somehow fine-tunes our policies and effectively supports our teams."
"The solution is easy to use and to start with."
"The solution offers very good convenience filtering."
"We really like the charts and visualization."
"Dashboards and their versatility are among the most valuable features."
"APM and tracing are super useful."
"The observability on offer is the most useful aspect of the product."
"APM is great and has provided low-effort out-of-the-box observability for various services."
"The flexibility to create notebooks and dashboards and fully customize them gives us a lot of power to track the exact services and endpoints we are working on."
"The solution has offered increased visibility via logging APM, metrics, RUM, etc."
"Datadog has flexibility."
 

Cons

"From my experience, Coralogix has horrible Terraform providers."
"The documentation of the tool could be improved"
"It would be helpful if Coralogix could integrate the main modules that any organization requires into a single subscription."
"We want it to work at what it is expected to work at and not really based on the updated configuration which one developer has decided to change."
"The user interface could be more intuitive and explanatory."
"Maybe they could make it more user-friendly."
"I'd like to see better pricing and more integration in the next release."
"Even though it is powerful on its own, the UI-based design lacks elegance, efficiency, and complexity."
"It does not have the best interface."
"Datadog lacks a deeper application-level insight. Their competitors had eclipsed them in offering ET functionality that was important to us. That's why we stopped using it and switched to New Relic. Datadog's price is also high."
"The more tools that they can build that allow you to run AWX playbooks, or other similar fixes, would benefit clients greatly."
"It would also be nice if we had more insight into our own usage of Datadog (agents and custom metrics). They provide a usage page which does help, but it is not in real-time."
"The product could do better with its notifications."
"Delta traces on the Golang profiler are extremely expensive concerning memory utilization."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The platform has a reasonable cost. I rate the pricing a three out of ten."
"The cost of the solution is per volume of data ingested."
"We are paying roughly $5,000 a month."
"The pricing and licensing through AWS Marketplace has been good. It would be nice if it was cheaper, but their pricing is reasonable for what it is. Sometimes, for their newer features, they charge as if it's fully fleshed out, even though it is a newer feature and it may have less stuff than their other items."
"​Pricing seems reasonable. It depends on the size of your organization, the size of your infrastructure, and what portion of your overall business costs go toward infrastructure."
"It is easy to run up a large bill, so become familiar with the cost of each piece of your bill and use the metrics they supply to estimate and monitor your bill."
"They prefer monthly subscriptions."
"The price of Datadog is reasonable. Other solutions are more expensive, such as AppDynamics."
"My advice is to really keep an eye on your overage costs, as they can spiral really fast."
"The tool is open-source."
"It didn't scale well from the cost perspective. We had a custom package deal."
