SeeFusion vs. FusionReactor

I don't believe that CF8 Standard comes with the server monitoring tools. morgan l 10/24/2007 11:30 AM
The Server Monitor doesn't ship with CF8 Standard, hence why Ben is Andy Allan 10/24/2007 11:19 AM

Author: DURETTE, STEVEN J (ATTASIAIT) Short Link: http://www.houseoffusion.com/groups/cf-talk/thread.cfm/threadid:54007#292065 Even with that change to the licensing, that still costs more than Fusion Reactor when you have 6 CF instances on one box.  1 Fusion Reactor License or 3 SeeFusion licenses. Actually, the SeeFusion pricing is a little different then that.   http://www.seefusion.com/index.cfm?do=c.whatsnew The last item on this page details their 2 for 1 pricing model. ================== New 2-for-1 pricing model for individual servers For any single physical server, every 2 ColdFusion instances that you want to monitor now require just 1 SeeFusion license. So for a server with 4 ColdFusion instances that you want to monitor, you'd need 2 SeeFusion licenses. Or, for 2 physical servers each with 2 ColdFusion instances you want to monitor, you'd also still only need 2 SeeFusion licenses.   ================== ~Brad A SeeFusion license had to be purchased for each instance of ColdFusion running on the server.  Whereas, one FusionReactor license was used per server (not instance).

Author: DURETTE, STEVEN J (ATTASIAIT) Short Link: http://www.houseoffusion.com/groups/cf-talk/thread.cfm/threadid:54007#291990 One other thing you might want to consider is the licensing. The last time I checked SeeFusion and FusionReactor were licensed in different ways. A SeeFusion license had to be purchased for each instance of ColdFusion running on the server.  Whereas, one FusionReactor license was used per server (not instance). This locked in FusionReactor for us.  At the time, FusionReactor cost us a little of $700 with a year update subscription.  To do the same with SeeFusion we figured out our costs to be over $3000. Of course licensing may have changed since then (almost a year ago), but I'm happy with FusionReactor.  Within 45 minutes of installing it, we found what was randomly crashing our server.  A user found out how to fudge a url to pull down massive amounts of data.  We corrected the code and booted the user.  This after 4 weeks of trying to find the problem.

Not really. I've used them both, and like them both.

They are both inexpensive enough that if you prefer one to the other, you should get it.

The latest version of SeeFusion uses a very slick Flex interface that allows constant streaming of stats among other things which I have found to be very easy to use.   The active monitoring rules E-mail me before anyone even notices the servers have a problem Where I take SeeFusion to the bank is in the database logging.  I have a separate database for my webserver stats which I aggregate via jobs every night and I can produce pretty nice trending reports at the end of the month. (I will send you an example of a report I made from SeeFusion data if you are interested) Even cooler is the API that is available to build your own monitoring interfaces using live SeeFusion data.  I have a monitor I built that shows me every spid running on the database, the NAME of the user running it, and the page of the application they are on.  I used the SeeFusion API to tie the web server info together with the database info via running spid and web server IP. Finally, I have never had a bad experience calling up for tech support. I bugged the crap out of them for a while, and they still kept answering the phones with a smile.  lol Anyway, just my 2 cents.  :) ~Brad I'm about to invest in one of these, and I'm looking for advice and/or practical experience.  We have several applications running, and we're trying to hunt down the source of site slowdowns.  Is there an overriding reason to pick one over the other?
