Hosted Graphite vs Sensu: What are the differences?

Developers describe Hosted Graphite as "Graphite as a service". Hosted Graphite is the powerful open-source application metrics system used by hundreds of companies. We take away the headaches of scaling, maintenance, and upgrades and let you do what you do best - write great software. On the other hand, Sensu is detailed as "Open source monitoring framework". A monitoring framework that aims to be simple, malleable, and scalable. Essentially, Sensu takes the results of “check” scripts run across many systems, and if certain conditions are met; passes their information to one or more “handlers”. Checks are used, for example, to determine if a service like Apache is up or down.

Hosted Graphite and Sensu can be primarily classified as "Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Hosted Graphite are:

  • Dashboards- Standard Graphite and Tasseo dashboards out of the box
  • Account Sharing- Allow team members to customise graphs and dashboards
  • Access Keys- Export data to external monitoring systems, dashboards and alerting systems

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

  • Execute service checks
  • Send notifications
  • Collect metrics

"Great customer support" is the primary reason why developers consider Hosted Graphite over the competitors, whereas "Support for almost anything" was stated as the key factor in picking Sensu.

Sensu is an open source tool with 2.96K GitHub stars and 389 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sensu's open source repository on GitHub.
