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 Database Performance Monitor (formerly VividCortex)

It has got a powerful engine behind to track the database operation and allows you to deploy releases in production environment and check efficiency. If you are having a product with numerous clients using it, then DPA is the required tool to manage your database operations. It has space for improvement mostly on supporting newer databases like Cockroch DB and Arango DB.

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.

SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor (formerly VividCortex)

  • More integration with CI/CD setup is needed so that it can [simply] be configured.
  • With microservices in boom, it needs to be enable API's to track using API and manage DB issues more promptly.
  • Feature like live queries running in DB is missing and would add more power to it.

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.

Catchpoint

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

SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor (formerly VividCortex)

We wanted to scale up our deployment and track the health of our Database servers. SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor comes up with various capacity for enhancing visualization and reports every issue which DB is having. We were able to optimize most of the query and also helped with the Performance or Load Testing. All the features and advantages helped us to select SolarWinds against other vendors.

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).

  • License cost is quite costly and further pricing model can be improved as many of the feature[s] might not be required and hence can be customized.
  • After deploying the product with Solarwind DPM, we got the granular level processing in database, and helped us to carry multiple fixes for its optimization.
  • No need of separate Support team, as alerts can be created and hence reduces manual efforts for tracking.
