Shinken vs Sysdig: What are the differences?

Developers describe Shinken as "Nagios compatible monitoring framework, written in Python". Shinken's main goal is to give users a flexible architecture for their monitoring system that is designed to scale to large environments. Shinken is backwards-compatible with the Nagios configuration standard and plugins. It works on any operating system and architecture that supports Python, which includes Windows, GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. On the other hand, Sysdig is detailed as "Open source container monitoring for all Linux container technologies, including Docker, LXC, etc". Sysdig is open source, system-level exploration: capture system state and activity from a running Linux instance, then save, filter and analyze Sysdig is scriptable in Lua and includes a command line interface and a powerful interactive UI, csysdig, that runs in your terminal. Think of sysdig as strace + tcpdump + htop + iftop + lsof + awesome sauce. With state of the art container visibility on top..

Shinken and Sysdig can be primarily classified as "Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Shinken are:

  • Easy to install : install is mainly done with pip but some packages are available (deb / rpm) and we are planning to provide nightly build
  • Easy for new users : once installed, Shinken provide a simple command line interface to install new module and packs
  • Easy to migrate from Nagios : we want Nagios configuration and plugins to work in Shinken so that it is a “in place” replacement

On the other hand, Sysdig provides the following key features:

  • Real-Time Dashboard
  • Historical Replay
  • Dynamic Topology

Shinken and Sysdig are both open source tools. Sysdig with 5.68K GitHub stars and 526 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Shinken with 1.08K GitHub stars and 354 GitHub forks.
