collectd vs Checkmk: What are the differences?

collectd: System and applications metrics collector. collectd gathers statistics about the system it is running on and stores this information. Those statistics can then be used to find current performance bottlenecks (i.e. performance analysis) and predict future system load (i.e. capacity planning). Or if you just want pretty graphs of your private server and are fed up with some homegrown solution you're at the right place, too; Checkmk: A tool for Infrastructure & Application Monitoring. It is a software developed for IT Infrastructure monitoring. It is used for the monitoring of servers, applications, networks, cloud infrastructures, containers, storage, databases and environment sensors.

collectd and Checkmk can be primarily classified as "Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by collectd are:

  • fast
  • simple
  • integrated

On the other hand, Checkmk provides the following key features:

  • State-based monitoring
  • Log- and event-based monitoring
  • Graphing and analytics

collectd is an open source tool with 2.31K GitHub stars and 1.11K GitHub forks. Here's a link to collectd's open source repository on GitHub.

        Grafana
        Grafana is a general purpose dashboard and graph composer. It's focused on providing rich ways to visualize time series metrics, mainly though graphs but supports other ways to visualize data through a pluggable panel architecture. It currently has rich support for for Graphite, InfluxDB and OpenTSDB. But supports other data sources via plugins.
        Prometheus
        Prometheus is a systems and service monitoring system. It collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true.

        We use collectd because of it's low footprint and great capabilities. We use it to monitor our Google Compute Engine machines. More interestingly we setup collectd as StatsD replacement - all our Clojure services push application-level metrics using our own metrics library and collectd pushes them to Stackdriver
