Top 23 Monitoring Open-Source Projects

  • netdata

    Real-time performance monitoring, done right!

    Project mention: Container / host monitoring strategy? | | 2022-06-19

    Netdata is very good for monitoring.

  • Grafana

    The open and composable observability and data visualization platform. Visualize metrics, logs, and traces from multiple sources like Prometheus, Loki, Elasticsearch, InfluxDB, Postgres and many more.

    Project mention: old ipad as display? | | 2022-06-25

    u/Long_jawn_silver A Dashboard in this context is a web page that shows information (see the Magic Mirror project for one way of using a Pi and monitor - other ideas are here) - Grafana is often used on a Pi with node-red to create a reporting system.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • prometheus

    The Prometheus monitoring system and time series database.

    Project mention: Emergency Alerts over Bash | | 2022-06-20

    Also, don't build a random script. Get a proper monitoring system.

  • PM2

    Node.js Production Process Manager with a built-in Load Balancer.

    Project mention: Anyone saw almost 100% CPU usage with pm2? | | 2022-06-15

    Almost 100% CPU pm2 usage as reported by v8 inspector · Issue #5379 · Unitech/pm2

    Sentry is cross-platform application monitoring, with a focus on error reporting.

    Project mention: Future-proof-ish logging abstraction for React.js in browser app? | | 2022-06-24

    I guess what you want is something like Sentry. It'll help you to monitor and catch errors on your client-side application.

    Scalable datastore for metrics, events, and real-time analytics

    Project mention: Open Source Databases in Go | | 2022-06-08

    osquery, with or without fleetdm or kolide.

  • DoraemonKit


  • TDengine

    An open-source time-series database with high-performance, scalability and SQL support. It can be widely used in IoT, Connected Vehicles, DevOps, Energy, Finance and other fields.

  • cadvisor

    Analyzes resource usage and performance characteristics of running containers.

    Project mention: Transparent memory offloading: more memory at a fraction of the cost and power | | 2022-06-21

    We added it to the Prometheus node_exporter ages ago. It's extremely useful in detecting system stalls.

    What I really need now is to have this information at the container level in cgroups v2.

    This metric will really help with measuring the impact of workload CPU bursting.

  • ctop

    Top-like interface for container metrics

    Project mention: Any tool that compares which of 2 docker containers is the best performing? | | 2022-04-25

    If you're looking for something a bit DIY/YOLO (i.e. quick and cheap), then I would combine a simple CLI load testing tool like Wrk with a basic container observability tool like ctop

  • cilium

    eBPF-based Networking, Security, and Observability

    Project mention: Cilium - Ebpf-based networking, security, and observability | | 2022-06-13
  • Pinpoint

    Project mention: Common Performance Management Mistakes | | 2021-12-21

    Pinpoint is a performance monitoring tool for Python, Java, and PHP applications. It can monitor CPU, memory, and storage utilization. You can integrate it into your project without changing a single line of code.

  • Telegraf

    The plugin-driven server agent for collecting & reporting metrics.

    Project mention: Scraping Info from Docker Inspect for Prometheus | | 2022-06-20

    Won't telegraf work?

  • bettercap

    The Swiss Army knife for 802.11, BLE, IPv4 and IPv6 networks reconnaissance and MITM attacks.

    Project mention: Men in the middle framework error | | 2022-02-05

    This project is no longer being updated. MITMf was written to address the need, at the time, of a modern tool for performing Man-In-The-Middle attacks. Since then many other tools have been created to fill this space, you should probably be using Bettercap as it is far more feature complete and better maintained.

  • sampler

    Tool for shell commands execution, visualization and alerting. Configured with a simple YAML file.

    Project mention: [May Update] Wasp - language for developing full-stack JS apps with no boilerplate | | 2022-06-27

    *Sampler *- Visualization for any shell command - if we ever saw a cool CLI tool, this is the one. Sample any dynamic process right from the terminal, and look like a true h4x0r while doing so! This is actually coming close to Wasp Alpha Testing Program in coolness.

  • Dash

    A beautiful web dashboard for Linux

    Project mention: what monitoring tool would you recommend to monitor a linux machine used as server? | | 2022-04-28

    I use
