Dan Lepinski

One of the best monitoring solutions I've used

2016-10-03

There's a plethora of documentation provided by Hosted Graphite, and many third party applications that you can integrate with to get even more use from Hosted Graphite.

Pros

The graphs are easy to read, and you can create really great dashboards for your key systems.

Cons

I'd love to see their Alerts feature come out of Beta.

Simple, Useful, Essential

The real star of HG is the Grafana dashboards. They look great, giving a clear presentation of key data which can be shared around the organisation.

Fantastic product, fantastic service

2015-04-17

Hosted Graphite (HG) is the best thing for server monitoring since sliced bread.

Pros

* Use your statsd (with HG config out-of-the-box) or theirs * Zero-conf metric storage and partitioning, it just works * Automagic grafana integration

Cons

* You still have to wire up your own metrics inside your service (not really their fault though) * Performance at peak business hours hasn't always been perfect, but has improved tremendously in late 2014 (I believe they mentioned they scaled out their backend horizontally quite a bit). * Doesn't replace New Relic, but then it doesn't really try to

Great software, easy to integrate and use

2016-02-25

We had experience with server monitoring, but it was not detailed enough by definition, because result was like "something happened", not helping in real troubleshooting.

Great service

2016-03-02

There are a few downsides for me so far: - there is no established alerting yet (currently in beta), however you can attach external altering that works with Graphite, you know, you have access to their Graphite endpoint

Completes our stack

2015-04-17

Add in hosted Graphana dashboards, sharable Graphana URLs, expiring statistics for use in auto-scaled/virtual environments like AWS and Rackspace, redundant storage, and near-zero-work configuration, and we save not only having to have institutional knowledge for hosting Graphite and Graphana (and their associated DB servers like ElastiCache) but almost the entire cost of doing so.

Pros

- Hosted Graphite (seriously) - Hosted StatsD (if you don't want to run it locally) - Hosted Graphana dashboards - Redundant storage - Expiring stats for auto-scaled environments - AWS CloudWatch integration - Logentries integration - Not having to host and run any of this on our own

Low-effort solution for great insights

2015-08-17

In the space of an afternoon we were able to integrate our NodeJS apps with Hosted Graphite and get some pretty graphs to isolate the problems.

So much better than trying to run your own Graphite system

2016-03-08

Having said that, it's a real pain to build and monitor. Whisper is a complex system to maintain, and it's very easy to make a setting which will have a lasting impact on your data in a way you don't want.

a year with Hosted graphite

2015-08-11

Hosted graphite is a great metrics SAAS product based on graphite but also provides additional tools such as statsd and grafana integrated together and at a price point which makes it cheaper than the same amount of amazon instances required to handle the load we're putting on it - not to talk about time .

Friction-less and stays out of my way. It just works.

Other: Comes with a two week trial but I wasted too much time and hadn't had a chance to show my client the tool. I emailed support and asked for an extension (just a couple of days).

Awesome service

2015-08-12

Hosted Graphite was incredibly easy to startup and the one issue we had, the customer service went above and beyond, providing some custom filters on the inbound metrics so we didn't have to worry about changing our own system -- all because we wanted to spend _less_ money with them.
