Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Prometheus JMX Exporter for Java17
6 projects | reddit.com/r/PrometheusMonitoring | 9 May 2023
After doing some research it appears this class references internal packages and therefore "makes it unusable for modern Java apps" (https://github.com/prometheus/client_java/issues/533 , https://github.com/open-telemetry/opentelemetry-java/issues/4192)
Python in SRE?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/sre | 22 Dec 2021
For monitoring: If you want to go the open source route, the open telemetry ecosystem is booming. You could use the open telemetry java agent along with their collector, and then use Elastic APM, which could give you a good starting point. Here is a small example project I found on github that was fun to play around with and explore the capabilities of a setup like this: https://github.com/riferrei/otel-with-apache-pulsar
Best performance monitoring tools?

OpenTelemetry and Java Flight Recorder (JFR) cover most bases. Use the OpenTelemetry Java agent if you want auto-instrumentation or just the APIs if you want to do your own instrumentation.

Deep Dive: Observability Tool Price Comparison with Calculator Spreadsheet
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Observability | 27 May 2023
Sure, we will include dynatrace and elastic in our next update. The line items are mostly based on how the product does the billing u/RabidWolfAlpha. Datadog has an SKU-based billing structure. If you visit their pricing page, they list down a lot of products, and they bill each of them separately. For example, APM and infrastructure monitoring are two separate paid products. SigNoz is based on usage-based pricing; only pay for how much data you ingest. Billing is based on how much logs, metrics and traces you ingest. There is no separate billing for APM and infrastructure monitoring. SigNoz has most features that Datadog provides, except things like network monitoring, Cloud SIEM, etc. Are you looking for any specific feature? p.s SigNoz is also open source: our github repo.2 projects | reddit.com/r/Observability | 27 May 2023
$65M for Obsevability

"Coinbase (?) had a $65M Datadog bill per its Q1 earnings call"
Folks on this thread might want to check out SigNoz (https://github.com/SigNoz/signoz). It's an open source alternative to Datadog.
I am one of the maintainers at SigNoz. We have come across many more horror stories around Datadog billing while interacting with our users.
We recently did a deep dive on pricing, and found some interesting insights on how it is priced compared to other products.
Datadog's billing has two key issues:
I am not sure when you tried OpenTelemetry, but it is decently mature now, esp. for tracing. I am a maintainer at SigNoz (https://github.com/signoz/signoz) and we have good support for tracing using Otel for most of the common frameworks.
I agree it was a bit rapidly evolving in early days, but now its much more mature.
You can check out our docs for distributed tracing here - https://signoz.io/docs/instrumentation/
We are building SigNoz (https://github.com/SigNoz/signoz) - an open source alternative to DataDog. We are natively based on opentelemetry and see lots of our users very interested in that.
As mentioned in some other places in the thread, DataDog pricing is very unpredictable and high - and I think more open standards based solutions are the way forward which provides users more predictability and flexibility
You should check out SigNoz (https://github.com/SigNoz/signoz) - It's an open source alternative to DataDog with metrics, traces and logs in a single application. You can just self host it yourself or try the hosted version.

I can't recommend serious use of an all-in-one local Grafana Loki setup
