SolarWinds Pingdom

If you are looking to take your page speed optimization to the next level, Pingdom is a great tool. It is very valuable at helping to identify issues, benchmark your pefromance and check to see the results of your optimization efforts. If you aren't using other uptime alert and server monitoring tools, those features will be very beneficial

Pros

CoScale

  • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
  • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Monitoring as many websites as we can throw at it.
  • Customer Service has been extremely great with quick responses and resolution.
  • The ability to integrate with our chat client or via web hook with allows for maximum visibility amongst team members.
John Birks | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

CoScale

  • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
  • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • An easy way to update a mass group of alerts instead of one-by-one edits
  • Our less IT-oriented teams sometimes have a hard time understanding what the alerts mean, but that is a user education issue we should probably address ourselves to better explain purposes of alerts.

Recently added features have made Pingdom less intuitive for our requirements. While Pingdom has a broad offering and remains a good value, it is becoming more than we need. Our customer base is becoming more and more global and Pingdom still lacks Asia-Pacific monitoring, which we will need within a year.

Usability is good. Portability is also good. I am able to place this on various VMs in the DC and use that to help determine what areas to concentrate on. It also helps to find issues prior to a window that I can identify as not being part of the work to be performed and that the customer needs to address.

We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

They have a chatbot and if you need someone, they will come online or you can leave a message and they will email you back. They also have a great help support section anyone can go in and type their question to get quick answers. The support section is very comprehensive with many answers are your fingertips.

Alternatives Considered

CoScale

CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

I wasn't part of the selection process but I can say that the user-friendliness for a slightly technical person and the level of detail and reporting makes it better than the other ones I've worked with. I've heard of better ones in the market like Pingometer and up-down, but I haven't used them.
