Pros: Instrumental is easy and fast to implement. The dashboards allow to monitor the health on the system in one view. The querying language is very powerful and flexible. I can create customized alerts for system critical metrics. The documentation is clear and detailed. Outstanding customer service.

Cons: The user and project settings are very simple and could use a little polish. Other than that I have no complaints.

High level system health with the ability to drill down into specifics.

Pros: It is very easy to get everybody who needs access to it up and running at our company. We use Instrumental as a real time health dashboard of our physical locations as well as monitoring all aspects of our production system.

I love the flexibility that it offers over other similar tools. I never worry about it not being available and it has been a very solid product.

Cons: I'd really like the ability to clone graph groups, this would really help us set up new locations easier.

Pros: The flexibility! Instrumental gives you the ability to track pretty much anything your app can do: how often it happens, how long it takes, trends over time, with alerts when unexpected things happen. In addition to these custom metrics, the instrumental_agent library gives you a rock-solid foundation of commonly-used, actionable metrics right from the get-go.

Cons: While the core functionality of the Instrumental web app is extremely user-friendly, some ancillary tasks like user management (especially with lots of users) aren't as simple as I'd love to see eventually.
