Inspeqtor vs SeaLion: What are the differences?
Developers describe Inspeqtor as "Easy application infrastructure monitoring". Inspeqtor monitors your application infrastructure. It gathers and verifies key metrics from all the moving parts in your application and alerts you when something looks wrong. It understands the application deployment workflow so it won't bother you during a deploy. On the other hand, SeaLion is detailed as "Quickly diagnose problems with your Linux servers". SeaLion is a cloud based system monitoring tool for Linux servers. Getting started is as easy as executing a command. It installs an agent at /usr/local/sealion-agent and runs as an unprivileged user (sealion). This agent will collect data at regular intervals across servers and this data will be available on your workspace. The latest version is shipped with 5 default services namely Apache, NGINX, MongoDB, MySQL, Redis.
Inspeqtor and SeaLion belong to "Performance Monitoring" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Inspeqtor are:
- Monitor init.d-, systemd-, upstart-, runit- or launchd-managed services
- Monitor process memory and CPU usage
- Monitor daemon-specific metrics (e.g. redis, memcached, mysql, nginx...)
On the other hand, SeaLion provides the following key features:
- Raw output. No learning curve
- Quickly identify critical issues
- Historical analysis
