Quotes From Members Comparing Micro Focus SiteScope vs New Relic APM

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
SiteScope has built-in flat file DB, hence it removes the dependency of an external DB for higher stability.Has a simple setup. It can be up and running within hours.It can monitor over a 100 technologies with built-in solution templates.The Monitor Templates functionality allowed us to spin up monitoring with .csv files pretty easily.Simplest tool for monitoring servers, web content, databases and other hardware. Its dashboard is really good.Simple deployment: The deployment uses protocols such as NetBios, SSH, WMI, SNMP, which means that any device with any of these protocols will be monitored.It's easy to template standard monitoring configurations, and automate monitoring configuration.It's a very flexible product so you can run a script out of it, even straight out of the box.

The most important thing is that it tells us where the latency in throughput and response time are.As New Relic is already integrated with Drupal, we can get our projects done with best practice and with the best value that we believe in.It has the ability to monitor random URLs not tied to the one pinger per application (though it costs extra).They instrument up from the bottom to the top – every piece of code - they have a very perfect read of what’s being done, and how long it’s taking.The most valuable feature is the New Relic APM module to deep-dive into the application, to get bottlenecks to the surface, and to improve application performance. Also, the New Relic Insights module creates a real-time dashboard on application performance to create awareness for the DevOps team.

Cons
Direct integration with an SMS gateway for sending critical alerts to the support SME. This will help customer investing in third party middleware solutions for SMS.They have not kept up with browser security requirements or advances in GUIs, they switched to a corruptible database architecture instead of text config files.They should provide more templates for new vendor devices.It could be more reliable using a database repository instead of a log repository.Full application functionality available via the API. There are some functions you can perform managing monitors, that are only available through the UI.More out of the box Cloud integration and capabilities.

Some of our customers see New Relic as a promising product to have, and we would like to deliver it to them. The only way we would be able to do that would be if we had server appliance for clients that we could install in their data centres.I think that there have been some questionable product enhancements. Over a year ago, New Relic rolled out a new navigation that really disrupted our workflow.It gives you amazing statistics, but doesn’t give you enough information about what to do with the statistics.They need to improve the alerting and dashboarding as these are the key features in DevOps.

Pricing and Cost Advice
SiteScope licensing can be node based-or monitor-based. I would recommend for node-based licensing.You have to pay for their "solution templates". Other tools do not charge you for knowledge-based monitoring bundles.Depending on your requirements, there are two licensing models available. A simple point model, or an endpoint model.Licensing is a little steep.

If it’s the right tool, it doesn’t matter what it costs because you’re going to get it back many-fold from your productivity.It would be nice if we could buy it annually instead of monthly.Cost is significant with a lot of extras.The monthly cost os $1000 per server per month, but it could be even more. We pay about $250 for the server, and then New Relic wants over $1000 to give us statistics on those servers.New Relic is either free with low retention and minimal functionalities, or expensive with full options and retention.
