Chronograf vs collectd: What are the differences?

Chronograf: It is the user interface and administrative component *. The complete interface. allows you to quickly see the data that you have stored, so you can build robust queries and alerts; *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.

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

Chronograf and collectd are both open source tools. Chronograf with 17.1K GitHub stars and 2.43K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than collectd with 2.28K GitHub stars and 1.09K GitHub forks.

Exoscale, AdStage, and Warby Parker are some of the popular companies that use collectd, whereas Chronograf is used by Zencom, Veris, and WinSocial. collectd has a broader approval, being mentioned in 14 company stacks & 33 developers stacks; compared to Chronograf, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

        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
