Instrumental vs TraceView: What are the differences?

Instrumental: 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; TraceView: Ridiculously Detailed Application Monitoring. Expose everything, from the webserver to database, cache and API calls. The core technology is based on X-Trace, a distributed tracing framework that’s served as the inspiration for companies like Google and Twitter.

Instrumental and TraceView 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, TraceView provides the following key features:

  • Track every machine involved in a transaction and identify bottlenecks in a single click.
  • Isolate interesting calls and drill down to the line of code and machine it ran on.
  • Tie together code and infrastructure metrics with database, service, and cache calls, all in the context of a single transaction.

"Best, fastest, and easiest-to-use Interface" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Instrumental, while over 2 developers mention "The heatmap helped me isolate DB related issues" as the leading cause for choosing TraceView.
