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.

Deep Dive: Observability Tool Price Comparison with Calculator Spreadsheet

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 | /r/Observability | 27 May 2023

"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.

Observability - Types Of Vendor Pricing Models
2 projects | dev.to | 16 Dec 2022
In the last 5 to 10 years, new Observability vendors have entered the market, including Honeycomb, Instana, Lightstep and Datadog. Similarly, traditional APM vendors such as Dynatrace, AppDynamics, and New Relic, as well as SIEM (and log management) vendors such as Splunk and Sumo Logic, have joined them in the Observability space too. Finally you also have major cloud providers such as AWS with their own observability solution. Each of them is attempting to address the observability issues that modern architecture presents by using Logs, Metrics, Traces, and Events.
