    "Agents used to be something to avoid in the monitoring world ..." That's been both a philosophical and a technical debate for ages. Going agent-less can simplify and speed up deployment. Using purpose-built agents can get you dramatically better data granularity and turn-around time for event-based monitoring.

    It's true...I remember the debate well from my storage days. :) Which do you prefer?

Do you expect your service provider to provide new cloud monitoring tools soon?

    Companies will begin to demand the same level of visibility in the cloud as they currently enjoy in their own hosted environments. Currently, there are limitations of what cloud vendors allow customers to do in terms of monitoring, such as no option for port mirroring on switches.

    That's an interesting point! Is there any way around the port mirroring issue, do you think?
