As well as providing a free plan for Startups and a flexible pricing model for Cloud customers, Sematext also provides more affordable licensing than Dynatrace for On Premises customers. Annual licenses of Sematext Enterprise for APM begin at $5,000/year, which is a fraction of the equivalent Dynatrace annual license for the same infrastructure size. Thanks to volume discounting, pricing for larger Sematext licenses also compare very competitively with Dynatrace.

Please contact sales@sematext.com for pricing inquiries.


Only looking for a log monitoring solution and already have APM covered? No problem. Sematext allows for licensing of individual functionality in the Cloud and On Premises. Dynatrace, on the other hand, packages log monitoring together with APM as part of the DPM platform, which is only available with annual or perpetual licenses.

Ease of Use

Already familiar with the ELK stack (aka Elastic Stack)? Great, Sematext log monitoring is built on Elasticsearch meaning you can put those skills to good use. It can take as little as a few minutes to set up your log shippers and to start to get value from your data. With Sematext Cloud/Enterprise you can use any log shipping format or shipper you want (syslog, Logstash, Fluentd, Flume, nxlog, Filebeat), inspect your logs via the Sematext UI or Elasticsearch API, use the built-in Kibana or your own existing Kibana/Grafana instance for visualisations.

Secret Sauce? Monitoring and Logging, all in one

Unlike other solutions, which specialise in only APM or Log Monitoring functionality, Sematext Enterprise/Cloud allows you to jump from alerts, to metrics, to root cause log analysis all in one platform.
