anyone have APM suggestions here?
NewRelic is good… but pricey we’re interested in Elastic’s offering, but we have a PHP app and they don’t have an (official) PHP agent just yet…

@Tim Malone NR typically prices their APM product based on instance size. – I often suggest clients can reduce their costs by only deploying the NR agent on one instance in each service layer, rather than every instance.
Yeah we’ve done the same thing for now - but it means one instance has different config to the others, which is an anomaly. Also about to move to containers…. haven’t looked into what it’s gonna cost us then
We are looking at DataDog, decided on it this week to move forward as our solution.
NR is prety pricey. any recommendations for cheaper lesser known (up and coming as opposed to crappy) ones?
What do you want exactly? I’d like to try out honeycomb
Lightstep is promising.
Sysdig monitor is amazing for container monitoring but it’s not an APM, I agree
If cost troubles you, don’t look at app dynamics, the product is very good, but so much expensive (and really focused on big on-premise infra with a lot of java stuff)
