How about 1M+ data points per second?

About the Wavefront Service

Wavefront is a cloud-hosted service where you send your time-series (metric) data – from CollectD, StatsD, JMX, Ruby’s logger, AWS, anything.

You can then perform arbitrary mathematical operations on any number of those series, render charts to see anomalies or KPI dashboards, and ultimately create truly intelligent alerts to proactively watch over your entire stack.

It scales seamlessly, it’s reliable, it’s feature complete, and the support is great. It’s everything you always want, but never get.

Why Wavefront


You want to see right into the heart of your system, at granular detail, however big and complicated that might be.


You want to create smarter, dynamic alerts off meaningful telemetry gathered from every corner of your estate.


Your current monitoring approach isn’t scaling, i.e. it’s taking too much time, expertise, and cost to get what you want.
