    Experience testing. We have many many many forms that require the user step thru certain sequences to get to specific places to enter in the information. Once achieved, the user must use that information to perform other actions that must be frequently tested for response time and information accuracy. Once the first several forms are completed, they will in turn effect the outcome of the other actions. CP allows us to test each step of the experience and allows us to focus on specific actions and results. CP is not well suited to test environments that are ever changing as it is not as modularized as it can be. In environments that constantly change, it is difficult to keep CP up to date.

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    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

    • Performance Chart Metrics: series of graphs and a chart summary. The number of graphs drawn depends on the metrics and settings chosen for the chart.
    • Catchpoint synthetic test that will be set up target an endpoint or URLS
    • Catchpoint Real User Monitoring (RUM) collects data from users browsing our sites via a JavaScript snippet.

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    • 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
    Doug Thompson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Catchpoint

    • Adding an endpoint to be monitored requires a lot of steps (since there are a lot of functions and features). A quick-add feature would be nice. If the settings are similar, the interface allows you to duplicate an existing setup and tweak the settings.

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    • Incremental releases can be buggy
    • Isn't the best for pinpointing performance issues
    • Web interface can be sluggish

    Usability

    Catchpoint

    Catchpoint 5.5
    Based on 2 answers
    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.

    I have supported 20-30 different vendor tools in my career and Catchpoint, by far, has the best customer service that I have ever experienced. They are very responsive and thoroughly track and provide visibility on progress. Their level one resources are generally very knowledgeable. Also, support is more than happy to join bridge calls to help troubleshoot application issues if requested. Finally, the scope of service provided by support is not just typical support activities - they will also help in creating new monitors, providing training/education, etc... I am extremely happy with Catchpoint support!

    Alternatives Considered

    Catchpoint

    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

    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

    • 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

    Redgate SQL Monitor

    • 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.
