I would like to bring in some clarity.
>> For example... DataDogs dash-boarding capabilities are far beyond what Site24x7 offers today. I can also just throw data at DataDog and chart/monitor it. I have seen no easy way to just send a metric to Site24x7.
The answer to this is yes. This capability is in the works as Muralikrishnan put it. It would be called "Custom Metrics Monitor". You can push any data via a REST API in to our system and graph with the any of our other out of the box monitoring.
The screenshots are of something that is still not released.
>> But to answer the direct question. We do a lot of application monitoring with StatsD can Site24x7 monitor and display StatsD metrics?
We do not have any out-of-the-box integration with StatsD yet. However that will be one of the first things that our "Custom Metrics Monitor" team would work once they release the "Custom Metrics Monitor".
>>Now my 2018 budget has 2k extra. Thanks!
If you elaborate what you are spending for, in a new post, I believe we can help save that :-)
For others in the community. This new monitor is in addition to what we already have and what is called the "Site24x7 Plugins". As you know, "Site24x7 Plugin" uses the Site24x7 Server Agents for pushing data while the new one does not need any software installation.
