Graphite vs Packetbeat vs Prometheus





What is Graphite?

Graphite does two things: 1) Store numeric time-series data and 2) Render graphs of this data on demand

What is Packetbeat?

Packetbeat agents sniff the traffic between your application processes, parse on the fly protocols like HTTP, MySQL, Postgresql or REDIS and correlate the messages into transactions.

What is 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 primarily use Prometheus to gather metrics and statistics to display them in Grafana. Aside from that we poll Prometheus for our orchestration-solution "JCOverseer" to determine, which host is least occupied at the moment.

Utilizando computação em nuvens e o modelo de pagar pelo uso com _graphite _nós conseguimos analisar todos os logs de informação gerada pelo sistema.
