How much should my observability stack cost?  ↦

I love the way Charity Majors, CEO of, opens up this post…

What should one pay for observability?

How much observability is enough? How much is too much, or is there such a thing?

Is it better to pay for one product that claims (dubiously) to do everything, or twenty products that are each optimized to do a different part of the problem super well?

It’s almost enough to make a busy engineer say “Screw it, I’m spinning up Nagios”.

(Hey, I said almost.)
