Boundary vs Honeycomb: What are the differences?
Developers describe Boundary as "Real-time monitoring for server and applications with beatiful UI". Monitor it all: web servers, load balancers, application back-ends, big data clusters, queues, caching nodes, or databases. Boundary provides insights no matter what stack you use, whether you deploy in the cloud or your data center. On the other hand, Honeycomb is detailed as "Observability for a distributed world--designed for high cardinality data and collaborative problem solving 🐝💖". We built Honeycomb to answer the hard questions that come up when you're trying to operate your software–to debug microservices, serverless, distributed systems, polyglot persistence, containers, and a world of fast, parallel deploys.
Boundary and Honeycomb can be primarily classified as "Performance Monitoring" tools.
Some of the features offered by Boundary are:
- Monitor Servers and Applications in real-time
- Generate Alarms
- Customizable Dashboards
On the other hand, Honeycomb provides the following key features:
- High-performance querying against high-cardinality or sparse events.
- Accepts any structured JSON objects with a write key.
- Submit events via API.
