We were designing an Airlines reservation system, where we wanted to check the maximum number if reservation our system can handle, this tool helped us to get the test results but the issue was from set up point of view, the initial set up took too much time. But we were able to achieve our Reservation system process.

If you need to gauge whether your site is up or down, then Neustar will give you exactly what you are looking for. However, if you need more granularity for specific application or sub-systems and their functionality, this product will need to be subsidized with other applications that provide more data or information on how individual components or systems are working.

  • It allows access to a history of checks, how much time they took, and if any errors were detected.
  • It can alert several people, or many in a group, for information related to the application availability.
  • When drilling down into the check, the logs can pinpoint the exact time and code events and how long each step took to respond.

  • The interface can be buggy.
  • We have experienced false positives of a system outage that was not accurate.
  • It's not a true measure of system performance or uptime, but simply judges up or down from a holistic view.

The bundle of features that other tools provide is much higher when compared to the one provided by Akamai CloudTest, this is something they need to focus on Priority. Most tools comes with default setup and ends to end testing scenario that can be covered, such as Regression testing. From Akamai CloudTest this is a missing features that can be added up soon.

To be honest, I am not certain why this product was initially chosen over other products. It was being used when I started working at a new job. I was trained on its use and focused on tracking issues when an alert was given. There are many products that can be used for monitoring site uptime. Neustar definitely has its uses for monitoring if a site is up or down, but its lack of granularity can turn some away.

Return on Investment
Akamai
  • System Hangs as where severe load testing is required
  • Authentication is an issue when using OAUTH
  • Scalability can be improved and also an on premise tool can be of great help

Vercara (formerly Neustar Security Services)
  • Our company at one time gauged overall system uptime using Neustar WebMetrics to provide this data
  • Due to the limitations with the applications ability to show system functionality and uptime we have begun using other methods for determining system uptime for our customers.
  • The interface can be a bit tricky to understand during first use. There is somewhat of a learning curve.
