I love SPM because it would usually take an endless amount of time to configure generic JMX-ready monitoring tools to render useful and carefully designed dashboards. With SPM it takes 2-3 minutes from scratch until the data is visible.

FAQ

What happens at the end of my trial?

New users get a 30-days free trial for each new SPM App (existing customers get 2 days free trial for each additional App). At the end of the trial the App is automatically switched to the Basic (free) plan, unless you picked a paid plan. If you pick a paid plan before the trial period ends we will honour the full trial period.

Can I cancel the service?

Of course. You can simply stop sending us metrics, or remove our agents, or switch to the Basic plan.

Hourly pricing, no contract, discounts

There are no contracts and no commitments. You can cancel any time. Price is metered and based on the running time for the app / server being monitored. Note: Docker monitoring is based on the base price and per-container price. The base price includes monitoring of a Docker host and free monitoring of up to N containers. Per-container price is applied only if you run more than N containers per host. The number of containers per host is averaged for the whole account. The base price and the number of containers included in it depends on the plan. We charge at the end of the month. For longer term and large contracts please get in touch.

Can I use multiple different plans?

Yes. Each SPM App is independent and each SPM can have a different plan. Each user account can have any number of SPM Apps. Moreover, each SPM App can use a different payment method (e.g. a different credit card).

Can I run SPM On Premises or in my Cloud?

Yes. Everything you see in the Cloud version of SPM is available in an on Premises version, packaged as an RPM, DEB package, or a VM. Please get in touch for more information.

How many servers can I monitor?

There are no limits to how many servers / instances / nodes / containers you can monitor.

Do I have to create my own charts and reports?

You don’t have to, though you can. SPM gives you instant gratification. SPM knows what type of application you are monitoring and gives you a number of charts out of the box, neatly grouped into multiple reports and filterable by a number of dimensions appropriate for each collected metric (or tags you can specify). As soon as you install the SPM agent SPM will become immediately useful and usable by your whole team.

Can I graph my own custom metrics?

Yes. You can send your custom metrics, chart them, alert on them, apply on anomaly detection on them, create custom dashboards with them, correlate them with other metrics, events, and logs.

How does SPM compare to New Relic? Datadog? AppDynamics? Marvel?

SPM is 4-5 times cheaper than New Relic APM. For more information see SPM vs. New Relic APM. SPM gives you deeper out of the box metric collection and charting, while Datadog requires you to figure out which metrics to collect, how to chart them, build charts and dashboards from scratch, etc. AppDynamics is rich, but very expensive and focused primarily on large enterprises and on premises deployments. Unlike Marvel, SPM is not limited to monitoring Elasticsearch. For more information see SPM vs. Marvel.
