Hi! I have some general questions. I just found out about SigNoz and i have worked with monitoring/observ for a while now. I'm looking for a more easy way of setting up surveillance for hybrid solutions. "opensource". I have worked with tools such as Zabbix/Datadog/op5"nagios"/prometheus"grafana stack",loki,tempo,mimir. Tools like newrelic/Datadog/logicmonitor is easier to start with, but cost a lot. And the most opensource-tools takes to much time to instrument and get to work as you want. and "sometimes hard to understand documentation". For example. To just to get monitor a jvm with jmx scraper in prometheus you need to do too many steps. Zabbix is opensource and they are trying to become more like DataDog with APM monitoring, logs, Distributed Tracing.. but they are not mature for APM yet. Do you guys think the same as me? For now i will try out SigNoz together with odigos.io see if it's easy to setup. So you will get logs,metrics,traces in same place without a headache. And does SigNoz use's a agent like other tooling? Is SigNoz mainly focusing on APM or is it also monitor server's etc? Thanks! 🙂

yeah, it's recommended to use opentelemetry agents in your applications cluster and send data to signoz cluster
SigNoz mainly focusing on APM or is it also monitor server's etc?
Users have seen great value as OSS APM in SigNoz but SigNoz can ingest all sorts of metrics, traces and logs which are compliant to OpenTelemetry. And yes, it can be used for infra monitoring too
For now i will try out SigNoz together with odigos.io see if it's easy to setup.
Interesting... I see SigNoz as the only OSS supporting all of metrics, traces and logs in the destinations mentioned by them. Though we have not tested out the completeness of instrumentation but would love to know how it turns out. Otherwise, you can always refer to our docs
