Monitis

Monitis does extremely well at monitoring external connections in a simple and intuitive way. However, it doesn't provide deeper insights into why those services may have gone offline. There isn't an integrated trace route or net path type capability for individual uptime monitors. Great for alerting, not so much for investigation. It is a fantastic tool for alerting you to outages.

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

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

Monitis

  • User experience
  • URL sharing
Tomasz Sikora | 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.

When sifting through various website speed testing sites, this one is very easy to use. Very visual to share with others without them getting overwhelmed, it shows the main points to focus on, time delays at the exact location of load on the website. To help show someone how a site is performing this is hands down one of the easiest to use and share.

We have very rarely needed to contact support and the product is well-documented. There are a number of helpful articles and FAQs that will solve your issues right away. Support is timely and reasonable. The product has been easy to use and has required very little in the way of support.

Alternatives Considered

Monitis

Monitis isn't a true RMM system in that it really lacks the second "M". This product does fantastic at remotely monitoring a large variety of endpoint types without an agent and is capable of getting even more in-depth with its agent-based monitoring. However, it is definitely not a replacement for a full RMM product like SolarWinds, Kaseya, or ConnectWise. It can be a great product to augment your existing tools but isn't likely a replacement.

SolarWinds Pingdom

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.

Return on Investment

Monitis

  • It has been adequate since it identifies my levels of financial indices which I wish to reach or maintain.
  • In the time I had this tool, the control has been more positive than negative, and I like how effective it can be in the different aspects that use it.

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Seeing a site go down in real time allows us to take action immediately. Site downtime in a 100% online marketing world can result to millions lost. This has helped as avoid all of that.
  • Website uptime is 100% essential in our industry and we've been able to fix all downtime issues immediately as soon as Pingdom notifies us.
