snorkel is a realtime exploratory data analysis tool that is complementary to your monitoring software. After you spot an anomaly in a time series graph, snorkel helps you create, refine and compare queries on your data that explain why your graphs are changing.
Ask and answer your questions in real time! Snorkel is an exploratory analysis tool that lets you ask question after question, each one unlocking new insights (and questions) about your running systems.
If you use a monitoring suite or TSDB, you probably know the familiar pain of seeing a graph change and not knowing why. Unlike a TSDB, Snorkel is meant for querying and browsing through raw samples.
Normally, aggregating millions of raw samples would be slow but Snorkel is fast because it uses a custom datastore, Sybil, that is built for speed and size. With columnar compression, your samples take up less space than believable. Built from the ground up in Go for instrumentation, Sybil is able to query millions of samples in under a second on commodity hardware.
