If you are looking to avoid running your own infrastructure I would recommend Datadog. It’s not the cheapest solution but they aren’t too expensive either. Their tools also offer a fair amount of flexibility especially if you are coming from python. Each monitoring agent hosts an instance of dogstatsd which you can ship data to directly. If you instrument your app for statsd you can ship to Datadog the same way. Recently DD has also added APM features for python. I haven’t used them myself but assuming you are ok paying for it, the additional application performance monitoring tools you get are very useful. They also introduced a logging aggregation feature recently. If you are looking for a package deal DD might be the place to go.

For a small and affordable setup, I recommend Datadog for the following reasons: They have a robust free plan. Signing up for an account only requires an email address and password (i.e., no credit card required). The agent that is installed tracks a lot of data out of the box and can be used for much more than the data we are tracking in this tutorial. It handles the storage engine setup for you, which can be a little tricky to get set up on your own. Not only is it a storage engine, it also provides a highly configurable graphing interface on top of this data
