collectd vs Ganglia: 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; Ganglia: Scalable distributed monitoring system. Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters.

collectd and Ganglia belong to "Monitoring Tools" category of the tech stack.

collectd is an open source tool with 2.26K GitHub stars and 1.08K GitHub forks. Here's a link to collectd's open source repository on GitHub.

Decisions about collectd and Ganglia

The objective of this work was to develop a system to monitor the materials of a production line using IoT technology. Currently, the process of monitoring and replacing parts depends on manual services. For this, load cells, microcontroller, Broker MQTT, Telegraf, InfluxDB, and Grafana were used. It was implemented in a workflow that had the function of collecting sensor data, storing it in a database, and visualizing it in the form of weight and quantity. With these developed solutions, he hopes to contribute to the logistics area, in the replacement and control of materials.
