Pros: - Choice of Sematexts own simple UI, and Kibana
- Easy to integrate, since the API supports a number of common standards (elasticsearch, syslogd)

Cons: - User Management could be improved, members added to the team have to switch to the team sphere, even if they dont have and apps configured themselves
- Missing feature: Filtering the context view (e.g. if there is an exception, displaying its context works, but I cannot limit that context)

Sematext is great for monitoring SolrCloud, with out of the box dashboards and easy to setup alerts

Pros: Pre-built dashboards which are easy to drill into and get great insights, alerts of various types, relatively easy to setup, once setup just works

Cons: That it requires Linux for the monitoring agent, there is no Windows version.
Occasionally false alerts when issues at data collection end, improvements have been made.

Overall: Monitoring of Solr, alerts

Sematext shows one unified view for all of our Docker log, events, and metrics!

Pros: Docker Metrics and Docker Logs all in one place! Correlating between logs, metrics, and events is awesome! Hosted Kibana without the hassle of setting it up ourselves.

Cons: Sometimes the UI can be a bit cramped, and slow. Features of the UI, like getting a list of events when correlating is not as intuitive as it could be (little spreadsheet icon). Logsene searching has a learning curve. Having logs, events, and metrics on one page can be cramped, and sometimes results in the page becoming unresponsive.

Great but with a small caveat for what is probably an unusual setup

Pros: Super easy way to see metrics and do log analysis with alerting! We have clusters running in six regions around the globe and use Sematext for all our log analysis and error alerting.

Cons: If you have a lot of clusters that you would like to keep separate in Sematext for various reasons (for us we have the same setup running in different regions of the globe) but want the same Sematext configuration (filters, alerts, etc) then you have to manually keep things in sync. Currently, it is impossible to have the same Sematext configuration applied to multiple apps...

Pros: Fantastic technical support, even feature requests (for sematext-agent) were sometimes implemented within hours. Sematext even setup its EU data center (partly) on our request. Thank you very much!

Cons: Business arrangements like a custom contract or plan sizes are not so easy and speedy to "implement" - but that's only a non-technical issue in the case of bigger probably public corporations.

Overall: Easy setup, no-headache operations, flexible and instant sizing and fantastic technical support
