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.

A powerful open-source monitoring and alerting toolkit that excels at collecting, querying, and visualizing metrics
We use it for monitoring our infrastructure metrics It is highly valuable as it serves as the foundation for our infrastructure monitoring tools. The installation process proved to be exceptionally straightforward. The interface is not particularly user-friendly and that could be improved. We…

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 best feature of this solution allows us to correlate logs, metrics and traces."
"The solution offers very good convenience filtering."
"The solution is easy to use and to start with."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"Numerous data monitoring tools are available, but Coralogix somehow fine-tunes our policies and effectively supports our teams."
"The solution can be deployed in thirty minutes."
"Prometheus is an open-source product that helps mold and improve it per our requirements. It is a lightweight solution that gives you many different metrics you can use in your application. The product offers complete granularity of your infrastructure. It integrates seamlessly with other tools like Grafana, which offers dashboard visibility. Prometheus is an extensively used product. I haven't seen any organization that is not using it."
"The scalability of Prometheus is very good."
"It has lots of APIs and libraries to integrate with any kind of language."
"It is a scalable solution."
"The solution offers an easy way to install and scratch values."
"Prometheus provides a flexible and adjustable querying and describing time, allowing for more responsive monitoring."
"I like its lightweight configuration functions."
 

Cons

"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 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."
"From my experience, Coralogix has horrible Terraform providers."
"Maybe they could make it more user-friendly."
"The user interface could be more intuitive and explanatory."
"Prometheus can be initially difficult for users since it has its query language, PromQL. The minimalistic interface is complicated to understand. They need to improve their interface so that users who don't know PromQL can also use it. You can only leverage the tool when you know PromQL."
"One potential area for improvement would be fixing the occasional glitches and bugs."
"Its stability could be even better."
"There isn’t much clarity regarding the issues that happen at the server end. It is a push model and from the client’s point of view, it needs to look better and solve remote issues."
"A slight alteration to the user interface should be made to increase efficiency and streamline the process. Currently, we are utilizing Prometheus to gather and compile metrics and then utilizing Grafana to display them in the form of a graph. However, I believe that Prometheus has the capability to handle both of these tasks on its own, with perhaps the addition of a supplementary plugin. By doing so, the need for utilizing two separate applications will be eliminated."
"The DSL could be improved."
"Prometheus has a learning curve when setting it up. It definitely requires a little bit more hands-on than other solutions. It is an open source solution which means you do need to go through and read the literature that they have online for setting it up. The setup could be made easier."
"The solution has shortcomings regarding security monitoring-oriented features to support custom use cases, like out-of-the-box test scenarios and threat-related use cases of its users."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The cost of the solution is per volume of data ingested."
"The platform has a reasonable cost. I rate the pricing a three out of ten."
"We are paying roughly $5,000 a month."
"The solution is not expensive."
"The solution is free of cost."
"The price of Prometheus is good, it is affordable because it is open source and there is no cost to it. You put it on your own server and the costs incurred completely depend on how you set it up."
"Prometheus is an open-source solution."
"Prometheus is an open-source solution."
"The solution is open source."
"Prometheus is an open-source tool."
"The product is expensive compared to Datadog."
