Xenon Partners, a software-focused technology private equity firm, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Metricfire, a leading provider in time series data monitoring. Metricfire boasts two products that help developers and IT administrators monitor large quantities of performance metrics.
According to BusinessWire, the global IT monitoring tools market is expected to grow at over a 34% CAGR through 2022.

We were impressed with the company’s organic growth to date and believe it is well-positioned moving forward. This is a great opportunity for us to bring in our expertise and partner with the existing team to enable Metricfire to continue on its growth path,” says Jonathan Siegel, Partner at Xenon Partners.

Multiple trends have contributed to the growth of the IT monitoring tool market in recent years, such as an increased reliance on cloud computing and storage.
