Real-time collection and visualization?Up to 15 minutes latency, 1-10 seconds granularity, good for post-mortem analysisMillisecond latency, one-second granularity, designed for troubleshooting emerging issues
Ultralight operation?Welcome to your CPU hog<1% CPU usage
Data privacy?It dependsYour data stays at the node – we don’t store it, can’t share or sell it
Scalability and updates?Patchy, expensive. Typically requires dedicated resources and expertise to install and run, with lots of moving parts to update.Unlimited and easy, at marginal cost, with no dedicated resources or expertise required
Zero configuration?Hours or days of configuration time. Update with care.Zero config metrics, charts, integrations and alerts. Additional configuration performed centrally, applied anywhere.
Unlimited metrics?~100 metrics (and may need self-assembly)2,000+ per node: every metric that can be collected
Metric visualizations?Configuration requiredEvery metric displayed graphically, automatically
Automated troubleshooting?Very limitedIntelligent, opinionated anomaly detection, notification and correlation
Time to value?Typically days or weeksPotentially just minutes
