Great AWS cost saving features and performance monitoring capabilities

We've been using Metricly for a couple years now and the overall benefits have been great. Very affordable price, cost saving features, and great depth of metrics when analyzing performance.

Metricly has simplified and improved our AWS monitoring

Metricly has been a part of our environment for 2+ years, and has greatly increased our visibility into our AWS infrastructure with and our peace of mind with the alerting capabilities. They are constantly evolving the product and have been very helpful and responsive to ideas and our use cases.

Great tool for AWS Cost Optimization and performance monitoring

Save on costs by retiring most of monitoring on our existing tools.

Metricly provides greater value than industry leading competing products for our AWS Cloud.

Cost control and insight into AWS resource usage with automatic adjusting heuristic alerts.

We were looking for a solution to analyze our environment and optimize our AWS spend. We were able to cut our AWS spend by 40+ %. Their tech support is extremely responsive. The company is constantly improving the offerings and building those products based on customer requests/feedback. The amount of time a request for a feature to beta to full release is amazing.

We've been using Metricly for a couple years now and the overall benefits have been great. Very affordable price, cost saving features, and great depth of metrics when analyzing performance.

Pros

I love the weekly AWS potential cost saving notifications. We've been able to reduce our monthly costs by resizing several EC2 instances.
The performance monitoring and alerts have helped us with proactive issue resolution before our customers noticed and performance issues.
Customer support is always ready and eager to help with any issues or questions. Their follow-up contact is also great.

Cons

Sometimes the amount of options and filters available can be a bit overwhelming, especially in the reporting area.
Since the product is based on weekly performance of metrics, monthly and bi-monthly performance patterns can cause false alerts.
No support for older Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003 (required for legacy 3rd party software), Oracle Linux 5.

Metricly has been a part of our environment for 2+ years, and has greatly increased our visibility into our AWS infrastructure with and our peace of mind with the alerting capabilities. They are constantly evolving the product and have been very helpful and responsive to ideas and our use cases.

Pros

Ease of generating alert policies including checks of multiple metrics, ability to view the same metric across different elements of the same type , custom costing reports for AWS, ability to send external events to Metricly. The dashboard tools are also very useful to create high level views of our infrastructure.

Cons

Ability to test policy conditions needs o be added to ensure confidence in the policy. Ability to have multiple conditions to select elements in AWS via custom tags needs to be added so that it is more easily controlled what goes into the inventory. I would also like to see improvements into the Zorka JVM monitoring application that is used , we havent gotten much use out of that yet.

Save on costs by retiring most of monitoring on our existing tools.

Pros

It's in the name, Metricly; plethora of metrics available with lots of customization for different dashboards and alerts. It is able to pick up and alert on historical data which is nice, since alerting on set thresholds isn't always helpful. Although we don't use the cost analysis tools often, I can see it pay for the cost of Metricly itself for other customers. Excellent customer support, and always willing to understand our use cases and add new features to better suit them.

Cons

Java monitoring is not a refined as other tools in the market, API calls need to be defined manually first. We have not retired one of our existing tools because of this as it provides better Java monitoring. However, this is the only value our existing tool provides, so it will be great to see when Metricly refine this feature so we can retire it.

Response from Metricly

Hi Joseph, great to hear your positive feedback! We'll be sure to pass your comments about Java monitoring along to our engineering team.

Cost control and insight into AWS resource usage with automatic adjusting heuristic alerts.

Pros

Metricly provides cost controls leveraging built-in analytics to analyze AWS usage patterns to reduce overall monthly spend. The cost savings is greater than the tool cost, enabling DevOps to justify Metricly use case. Metricly goes much further with value by monitoring individual EC2 instances metrics to further tailor cost-savings by right sizing CPU, and enabling our OPS department at-a-glance understand EC2 resource usage. (Network, CPU, Disk, etc). DevOps management complexity is expanding exponentially, and Metricly helps reduce the complexity by providing automatic resource threshold warning levels using heuristics to set warning levels issuing tickets to our DevOps group. With this feature, metricly becomes a tool with minimal administration while providing full value for monitoring, cost control, and historical SLA at a glance.

Response from Metricly

Great feedback Michael! Thanks for sharing your experiences using Metricly.

Pros

It was extremely easy to implement, we were able to start getting actionable data very quickly. It saved a tremendous amount of time in analyzing our usage and providing recommendations for cost and performance optimization.

Cons

There are a lot of filters and metrics to work through to get the specific data your are looking for. (This can be a good thing, but it takes a good understanding of AWS metrics to get what you need)
