Observium alternatives due to polling intervals
5 projects | reddit.com/r/networking | 20 Oct 2021
At least a demo can be done with snmpcollector + influxdb (+ Grafana?). I think it allows faster polling, however if I recall, the polling interval is always configured in the measurement template itself.
Replacing cacti with Grafana, scaling question

One solution I tested. However I have no clue how it compares performance-wise.
Server metrics monitoring and reporting for centos?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/devops | 9 May 2022
For nginx, you'll need to setup a log parser like mtail because it doesn't really have much for metrics to begin with.
How do you monitor webserver traffic?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/sysadmin | 31 Mar 2022
mtail is an option if you have a set number of URLs. You'll need to either scrape the data it provides with prometheus, or send it to collectd, statsd, graphite, etc.
Another System Admin is always finding "problems" with my services but when I ask him to show me what is not working, it's working fine. Getting really annoyed.

Same thing with metrics, use mtail to parse dhcp logs. This way you can see graphs of requests and errors. Plus you can now write alerts for it in Prometheus.
Faster Alternatives to Logwatch

I use mtail. In addition to the real-time mode, you can also run it in "one shot" mode to count matches.
How to monitor log for keywords and trigger email when found?

I'm a fan of mtail for extracting data from logs. This fits well with the overall Prometheus Monitoring monitoring that I use.
Searching for a lightweight log server

How about using rsyslog to receive and store all logs in a central location. The use mtail to extract metrics from that to be used in Prometheus alert manager.
Route to devops modernization in small company

One useful example, you mention Apache. Apache as a webserver is not very useful for metrics. But you can get reasonable data via mtail. Plug that into your Prometheus and you get a minimum amount of latency and error data for your app SLI/SLOs.
Help Managing many linux servers

Yup, I typically convert my logs to metrics for alerting using tools like mtail. Plus for apps that don't expose any good metrics, mtail can gap-fill.
What's most important to you when it comes to log analysis tools?

Something like mtail.
