Likelihood to Recommend

Catchpoint

It's an excellent tool for monitoring results and looking for failures, errors, or abnormal behavior in your applications; also, you can configure alerts to be sent to the appropriate person in case of failures. It can be used to run a smoke test so you can save some time. It's not the appropriate tool to run regression testing.

SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset

I have found the toolset especially useful for scanning subnets to discover devices, and for setting up temporary real-time monitors when we are troubleshooting or setting up new connections. The most useful aspect has been the ability to apply the tools to help troubleshoot and pinpoint intermittent issues. More general tools like Orion often do not have the granularity to detect issues like intermittent packet loss which are especially impactful to applications like Voice. The toolset gives us another level of capability to dig into issues.

Cons

Catchpoint

  • Would like Catchpoint to replace awful canned scheduled reports with customized ad-hoc reports built from the Performance tab.
  • Pricing for Catchpoint Points is too high. Limits the number of tests we use.

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.

Very easy to use and intuitive. Just be careful with the WAN Killer...it does what it says.

Alternatives Considered

Catchpoint

We are an ex-Keynote customer and an ex-Gomez customer. Catchpoint is better than both of those platforms.

SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset

I haven't compared any tools similar to SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset. This might be because I'm pretty biased when it comes to monitoring, and reporting solutions. I've found that SolarWinds provides the biggest bang for the buck in my opinion. I'm sure there are other solutions on the market that compete, but I haven't tried any of them because I've been very satisfied with SolarWinds.

Return on Investment

Catchpoint

  • It's very helpful to run tests after a deployment or release, so we can quickly see at the results before investing time on testing manually or running other tools.
  • It provides alerts, so we can be aware of errors even during the weekends (when our engineering team is not usually looking at the application).
