Honeycomb vs Scout: What are the differences?

What is Honeycomb? 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.

What is Scout? Application Monitoring that Developers Love. Scout is application monitoring that points developers right to the source of problems: N+1 database queries, memory bloat, performance trends, and more Scout eliminates much of the investigation part when performance woes occur. .

Honeycomb and Scout can be primarily classified as "Performance Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Honeycomb are:

  • High-performance querying against high-cardinality or sparse events.
  • Accepts any structured JSON objects with a write key.
  • Submit events via API.

  • Monitors Ruby & Elixir apps with more languages to come
  • Easy install
  • Detailed transaction traces
