Freshping

Freshing is well suited for user-facing systems, the systems they directly use. It also serves as nice eye-candy for them to look at. It does not monitor internal IT systems as well as we had hoped, so we use other tools to monitor those systems.

SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor (WPM)

We've found WPM to be a fit for every web application that we wanted to monitor. If you have a web app that you'd like monitoring/alerting for then WPM may work for you. So far our only struggles have been when after logging in the app launches a new tab.

It's perfectly easy and straightforward to use. There's no need to read documentation, you just register and will surely be able to configure whatever monitor you want to set up. It's also very easy to use other features like the status page, reporting, alerts, etc.

To date we have had no need of support from Freshping, it has just been that easy to use. It is highly intuitive and self-explanatory.

Solarwinds support is top-notch, and while we rarely have to call them, they are always very helpful when we do.

Alternatives Considered

Freshping

We use Uptime Robot, and also some internal health checks, which report directly to our emails and chat applications. They all work "pretty fine," but unfortunately all of them have had some false positives or missed some minor downtime, so as for us, it doesn't add too much overhead, and we prefer to use several. I would say all the ones mentioned are good for the job.

At the time we purchased WPM we were not aware of alternatives and therefore did not compare them.

Return on Investment

Freshping

  • Good visual for end users
  • Adds another check to verify uptime/outages
  • Cost for us was free, so we had nothing to lose by adding it

SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor (WPM)

  • Better reporting of down states to allow for SLA reporting
  • Better alerting during certain failure conditions which allows the IT org to respond faster
  • More thorough history to review past errors and see screenshots of the errors.
