We performed a comparison between Honeycomb.io and New Relic based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Datadog, Dynatrace, New Relic and others in Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and Observability.
"The solution's initial setup process was straightforward since we were getting enough support from Honeycomb.io's team."
"We appreciate the way that this solution allows us to monitor the ongoing status of the UI at any given time."
"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to receive in-depth information about applications. It can detect a lot of important information."
"New features are added often."
"The solution is scalable, and it is easy because all the documentation is available."
"The synthetics, alerts, and native inbuilt capabilities for monitoring the cloud with the New Relic agents have been helpful."
"What I like best about New Relic APM is its user interface because it's simple. The most valuable feature of New Relic APM is end-to-end monitoring."
"New Relic's dashboard is nice, and it's reliable. It's also compatible with many services, especially Java and the Python ecosystem."
"The process of log scraping gets delayed on Honeycomb.io. At times, it gives false alerts to the application team."
"The UX/UI design of New Relic APM could be improved. The solution currently has some slow pages in terms of loading and viewing the pages, for example, the reports. The reports and other pages take a long time to load."
"Real-user monitoring would be helpful as it would help me to really understand the client-side performance of the application."
"The customization of the start and end time is kind of cool."
"The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure."
"The solution only supports the cloud platform and not on-premises."
"There were some settings we had issues with."
"Documentation could be improved in New Relic APM, so users would have more clarity on configuring the dashboard. If New Relic gave better guidelines, users would find it easier to understand the metrics and features of New Relic APM. Another area for improvement is integration with Kubernetes. Currently, the process isn't user-friendly. It's challenging and lacks documentation for users to understand how to integrate New Relic APM with Kubernetes quickly. With multiple levels of Kubernetes dockers and other DBs on different clouds, it's tricky to gather all into New Relic APM on a single dashboard. What I'd like to see in the next version of New Relic APM is a single dashboard where you can easily view which applications fall under specific APMs. If there's a search feature where you can type in a keyword to find out if an APM is related to a particular application, that would be great."
"New Relic APM can improve the information when we dig deeper to check a problem. There should be more detailed information provided."
Many offerings tout observability. How is Honeycomb different? We have defined what Observability is and have built a tool to help modern Dev, DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering teams operate more efficiently. Because it’s all about delivering high quality code, maintaining reliability and getting precious time back.
We made a critical decision to provide a seamless, current view of your system (from logs to events and traces) in a single data store, regardless of how complex your architecture is. This means you no longer have to toil with multiple tools or stitched-together solutions – burning time as you address issues affecting users.
We also believe strongly that optimizing systems and debugging should not be difficult and draining, freeing up more time to ship new code. Our approach emphasizes efficiency and knowledge sharing, thereby elevating everyone’s game and ultimately business outcomes.
New Relic is a versatile tool that can be customized to fit the needs of different organizations. Its primary use cases include performance monitoring, time series analysis, infrastructure monitoring, synthetic monitoring of APIs, and providing insight into UI performance. New Relic APM is a popular application monitoring tool that provides in-depth observability of an application's performance, including database queries, website response times, and page load times.
The solution provides clear information and a complete picture of what is happening in the organization's system, allowing for easy monitoring of servers and providing value in code detection and resolution and user experience metrics.
