Question

What APM do you recommend?

I have used NewRelic and AppSignal. NewRelic is quite good but expensive, especially as the number of servers grow.
Curious to know what others are using and recommend?

We'll also have to look into this soon. Heard good things about Datadog too.

Thanks for the tip - I looked into Datadog but it seems their main focus is logs, even though they do have an APM.

One other thing I noticed is that Newrelic has a really nice integration with ruby - they have a gem which is really easy to install.

Datadog has an agent which is installed as an executable (their ruby gem is just a client that relies on the agent as the server). So datadog requires quite a bit more devops work when using a stack like ElasticBeanstalk.

In the end, I went with Newrelic... for now 🙂
