Instrumental vs Kadira: What are the differences?
Developers describe Instrumental as "Visualize any aspect of your application performance, measure production code in real-time, and share with your entire team". Instrumental is a real-time application and server monitoring platform. With over a million datapoints processed every second, we're one of the highest scale monitoring services. On the other hand, Kadira is detailed as "Performance Monitoring for Meteor". See what’s going on with your app with different performance metrics and traces. Kadira tracks all your client and server errors automatically. You can profile your app in production or locally with Kadira and analyze it using an easy-to-use CPU analyzer.
Instrumental and Kadira belong to "Performance Monitoring" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Instrumental are:
- Application monitoring - we accept any volume of arbitrary data, making it easy to set up graphs to measure the performance of your application in real time
- Server monitoring - Ruby apps can use our instrumental tools gem to monitor information like CPU statistics, memory usage, disk space, and all the other things you'll need to monitor your servers. Language support - Ruby is supported using a custom library, and all other languages are supported with our Statsd backend
- RESTful API - upon authentication, data is collected and returned in strict JSON format
On the other hand, Kadira provides the following key features:
- Performance Metrics and Traces
- Error Tracking
- CPU Profiling
"Best, fastest, and easiest-to-use Interface" is the primary reason why developers consider Instrumental over the competitors, whereas "Best performance monitoring tool for the best framewor" was stated as the key factor in picking Kadira.
