Redgate
Redgate SQL Monitor is well suited for database administrators or companies who implement software that relies on SQL servers. It will help them test new changes and ensure this will not impact the performance of their software. It is a last resort for MSPs to use to get to the bottom of an ongoing performance issue with their SQL server.

Pros
Catchpoint Systems Inc
  • Easy to login with SSO
  • Easy to review the test runs over the last hour or specific time period
  • Easy to check the results of any Catchpoint test that ran. This helps to understand why the test results may or may not be what is expected
  • I can't wait for the new Symphony UI to be completed because it is so much richer that the previous UI

  • It will tell you if your server is under attack.
  • You can quickly see how your server is performing and which queries are taking the longest
  • I gives you the feeling that you are in control of your database, that you know what is going on for when they users ring up and tell you that the server is slow

Cons
Catchpoint Systems Inc
  • Script recording could be more stable. Should be as smooth as chrome developer recording.
  • Needs a way to modularize the code so we don't have to repair in broad sections when it breaks because of some unplanned code change on our end.
  • How about a tutorial on selenium as relates to Catchpoint.
  • Some of the functions could have better descriptions.

Usability
Catchpoint Systems Inc
It's hard to find the functionalities that I am looking for in the application. Even if I did something in the past, after a time I have to re-learn again where the functionalities are. This is a powerful tool, but not user-friendly. Texts in the buttons and menus are not always meaningful or easily comprehensible.

Support Rating
Catchpoint Systems Inc
Catchpoint's customer support has been very impressive. They are always available when we needed help with setting up any tests that may also include help with scripting. They held an in-person workshop in our office to help train our internal resources with the scripting, dashboards, and metrics.

Primary reason we went with Catchpoint is that they offered us actual backbone testing locations. All the other features like a filmstrip and traceroutes have been very beneficial as well and were not available in the competitors' solutions.

Redgate SQL Monitor is a lot cheaper than SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer. I prefer the SolarWinds' design and that it offers integration with other SolarWinds products we already use. SolarWinds supports more than SQL servers (Oracle, MySQL, Maria DB, IBM DB2) and the analysis seems to be much better. The Spiceworks SQL Server monitoring is a free tool and is ideal for monitoring small business SQL instances.

Return on Investment
Catchpoint Systems Inc
  • The ROI has been very good with this product, we have seen multiple folds of time-saving by using this tool and preempting any risk associated with non-performant times of our server, hence increasing the team's capability to respond to certain downtime scenarios and the level of action that needs to be taken.
  • Catchpoint’s observability solution makes it easier to have global visibility of our website's performance and to fix issues quicker
  • I don't have any negatives, every good product comes with a cost, that is the fact but the Catchpoint tool has ultimately improved our ROI much beyond the changes that we pay

  • The quality of the product and give a negative investment impression, on the plus side when it does work it is a god send.
  • Day to day tasks as made simpler, and a feeling of security of realised. Just don't change anything.
