To integrate Amazon DynamoDB and collectd with your monitoring system, please reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Amazon DynamoDB and collectd and how that can support your monitoring system.
Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service. The service provides predictable performance and can scale seamlessly. Administrative tasks, such as operating and scaling a distributed database are handled automatically. You never have to worry about cluster scaling, software patching, replication, or set up and configuration.
DynamoDB encrypts data while not in use, keeping your data safe and secure at all times. The database tables you create can be stored and easily retrieved even during high peak traffic. Tables can be scaled up or down without loss of performance or downtime. Performance metrics and resource utilization can be monitored through your AWS Management Console.
The on-demand back-up makes it possible for you to create complete back-ups of all tables that you can keep in storage or archive for future needs. The back-ups can be enabled with a specific point-in-time recovery, which helps to protect your tables from being accidentally over-written or deleted.
Expired items can be set to delete automatically at a certain time, freeing up storage space.
As a non-relational service, Amazon DynamoDB is reliable and capable of helping small businesses as well as large companies. The back-up and restores, built-in security, and in-memory caching make it the best choice for any size business.
The AWS DynamoDB is chosen for Internet of Things, mobile, gaming, web, ad tech, and other applications requiring low-latency access to data. You create a new table and DynamoDB handles the rest of the work.
Integrate Amazon DynamoDB with MetricFire for complete control over all of your data. The DynamoDB is a perfect database for applications requiring consistent millisecond latency at any scale. MetricFire allows you to see this in real time.
With MetricFire, you can integrate with tools you know and trust. Stay on top of exactly what's going on at all times by monitoring the performance of your software and servers. Data is sent over high-resolution dashboards that show you exactly, in detail, what is happening with the technology stored inside. Plus, you are instantly alerted to any discrepancies or irregular behavior.
Collectd is system statistics collection daemon that periodically retrieves system and application performance metrics and then stores them using various storage solutions such as RRD files. Collectd is a free open-source project. It can gather metrics from multiple sources, including operating systems, applications, log files, and external devices. You can use the statistics compiled by collectd to monitor systems, detect performance bottlenecks, and predict future system loads.
Because it's written in C, collectd is built for performance and portability, allowing you to run it on systems with no scripting language or an embedded system. It comes with optimizations and features to handle hundreds of thousands of metrics. Collectd also lets you configure what metrics you want to capture and what frequency you want to capture them, allowing you to scale back your metrics collection collect only the metrics that make sense for your business needs. Its modular architecture allows the daemon to use only the resources required to do the job.
Collectd only performs the collection and transmission of the metrics. It does not analyze or present the metrics on its own. But by integrating collectd with the Metricfire platform, you can enjoy metrics displayed on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. Our integration lets you view metrics on essential systems and application log messages on your Hosted Graphite graphs and dashboards.
You can download a collectd configuration file pre-filled with your Hosted Graphite account details on our add-ons page. This configuration comes with several collectd plugins enabled, including CPU, DF (file system usage), disk, entropy, interface, load, memory, processes, rrdtool, swap, users and write_graphite.
MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.
MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.

Why thousands of engineers choose us:
Vendor lock-in's not our thing. We’re believers in you still owning your data, so you can request a full export at any time. That means you get all the benefits of an open-source tool, but with the security and stability of a SaaS tool.
“We now have over ten times the amount of metrics we started with, and on different accounts. One of the great things about MetricFire is that scaling to support this increase has been hassle-free, requiring no additional work on our side.”
Maxime Audet, Cloud-Ops Team Lead, CoveoRead customer story
Save valuable engineering time and stick within your budget. We're known for our predictable and transparent pricing so it's easy to keeps costs under control.
“Building and managing an on-premise installation at this scale would require a lot of engineer time, especially in the first year...we use this engineering time to work on initiatives closer to our core business”
Jim Davies, Head of DevOps, MoneySuperMarket.comRead customer story
Transparency is at the root of how we operate: from pricing to postmortems we're open about how we do things. We even publish our internal system metrics to our public status page.
“There’s complete transparency with everything MetricFire do which means we can accurately predict what we’ll be spending and comfortably keep within our budget.”
