AlertBot Website Monitoring

It is well suited for a business that wants simplistic web monitoring of their websites. It does a great job of alerting depending on how you fine-tune the timers.

If you are looking to take your page speed optimization to the next level, Pingdom is a great tool. It is very valuable at helping to identify issues, benchmark your pefromance and check to see the results of your optimization efforts. If you aren't using other uptime alert and server monitoring tools, those features will be very beneficial

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Monitoring as many websites as we can throw at it.
  • Customer Service has been extremely great with quick responses and resolution.

John Birks | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AlertBot Website Monitoring

  • Give more granular logs.
  • Easier web GUI that's more user intuitive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • An easy way to update a mass group of alerts instead of one-by-one edits
  • Our less IT-oriented teams sometimes have a hard time understanding what the alerts mean, but that is a user education issue we should probably address ourselves to better explain purposes of alerts.

Recently added features have made Pingdom less intuitive for our requirements. While Pingdom has a broad offering and remains a good value, it is becoming more than we need. Our customer base is becoming more and more global and Pingdom still lacks Asia-Pacific monitoring, which we will need within a year.

Usability is good. Portability is also good. I am able to place this on various VMs in the DC and use that to help determine what areas to concentrate on. It also helps to find issues prior to a window that I can identify as not being part of the work to be performed and that the customer needs to address.

Have always had very fast, smart, and professional help from the support teams. They have always quickly resolved my issues and helped me get the right sized package of services to meet our current business needs. Overall the support has been some of the best I get from SaaS software.

Alternatives Considered

AlertBot Website Monitoring

As I have reviewed previously. It offers more positive and friendly stuff when it comes to its application. It doesn't redirect visitors elsewhere and also gives updates when the website is being tampered or hacked. Even though there is a delay on updates but the good thing is, it suggest solutions to every incident.
Jason Myers | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

The detailed reporting and website uptime monitoring is something other tools don't provide. You don't want to get a call from a client or customer that your site is down, or lose sales if it brings in sales to you.You get recommendations on how to enhance the page performance, breakdown of content type for the page, requests by domain, file requests, everything

Return on Investment

AlertBot Website Monitoring

  • It needs a large capital.
  • ROI is good.
  • Fast ROI.
Jason Myers | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Excellent site monitoring allowing us to take necessary steps instantly to address outage or downtimes, thus keeping steady up time for our website customers
  • Detailed enough to get reasons of outages, which then lets us liaise with 3rd parties if necessary and to even get compensations in the event of missing SLAs
  • Negative: we still need to rely on our technical team to understand the reports from Pingdom
