Nodetime vs Sysdig: What are the differences?

What is Nodetime? Performance Profiler and Monitor for Node.js Applications. Nodetime is an application performance management toolset in the cloud - an all-round solution for performance monitoring, optimization and troubleshooting.

What is Sysdig? Open source container monitoring for all Linux container technologies, including Docker, LXC, etc. Sysdig is open source, system-level exploration: capture system state and activity from a running Linux instance, then save, filter and analyze Sysdig is scriptable in Lua and includes a command line interface and a powerful interactive UI, csysdig, that runs in your terminal. Think of sysdig as strace + tcpdump + htop + iftop + lsof + awesome sauce. With state of the art container visibility on top..

Nodetime belongs to "node.js Application Monitoring" category of the tech stack, while Sysdig can be primarily classified under "Monitoring Tools".

Some of the features offered by Nodetime are:

  • Transaction Tracing- gives you visibility of what's happening inside your application by showing requests and operations, e.g. API calls, with a lot of information, including response time, CPU time, operations such as database calls, http client requests, file system and other API calls which happened at the same time
  • Sample Filtering- If there are too many requests or operations handled by the application, Nodetime will send only the slowest samples of requests and their operations to the profiler web console
  • Custom Tracing- Nodetime samples requests and some Socket.io communication out of the box. For other types of applications or a specific operation tracing need it provides simple API functions and extension mechanisms

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

  • Real-Time Dashboard
  • Historical Replay
  • Dynamic Topology

Sysdig is an open source tool with 5.7K GitHub stars and 530 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sysdig's open source repository on GitHub.

      nodemon
      It is an open source utility that will monitor for any changes in your source and automatically restart your server. It has a default support for node & coffeescript, but easy to run any executable (such as python, make, etc).
      nodejs-dashboard
      Determine in realtime what's happening inside your node process from the terminal. No need to instrument code to get the deets. Also splits stderr/stdout to help spot errors sooner.
      NodeFly
      NodeFly APM provides real-time monitoring for your Node.js application. Simplicity is the key! We allow our users to gain detailed, real-time performance monitoring of your Node.js application services so they can see everything that is happening, as it happens. This includes understanding system usage at every moment in time to uncover and resolve issues within the application as they arise.

      Prometheus

      We have Prometheus as a monitoring engine as a part of our stack which contains Kubernetes cluster, container images and other open source tools. Also, I am aware that Sysdig can be integrated with Prometheus but I really wanted to know whether Sysdig or sysdig+prometheus will make better monitoring solution.
