Quick and Powerful Log Monitoring
Centralize your logs with Sematext and get all your insight within the same dashboard. Seamlessly integrate your favorite log shipper and get to work in minutes. No complicated setup process, and no unnecessary headaches. Take your logging experience to the next level with shared views, alerts, reliable filtering, pipelines, and a lot more.
Full stack infrastructure visibility at 1/4 the price.
Datadog starts their paid plans at $15 per host per month, and that's if you opt to be billed annually. If you cannot or just don't want to commit to pay for the full year in advance, then you'll pay $18/host/month. On the other hand, Sematext Monitoring is only $3.6 per month per host without commitment. All the same insight at a quarter of the price. And you're not trapped in an annual billing plan.
Affordable & Comprehensive Synthetic Monitoring
Datadog charges you based on the number of test runs per month. API testing costs $5 per ten thousand runs. For browser tests, you’ll be charged $12 per 1,000 runs, billed annually.
If you choose Sematext Synthetics, you’ll only pay $2 per API monitor and $7 per browser monitor in a Pay As You Go plan. The big difference here is that Sematext allows you to run up to 200,000 API and 15,000 browser tests per month. Sematext also offers monthly plans that give you better deals and more test runs.
Actionable Data from Real User Insights
Sematext Experience offers you all the insight you need with Real User Monitoring. Learn from real users in real sessions and troubleshoot your website based on real data. Starting at just $9/month, you can customize your plan based on views and retention.
