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.

ThousandEyes

ThousandEyes works well for BGP monitoring (e.g. watching for hijacks, monitoring external reachability, etc.). If you are already using a tool to perform these functions like BGPmon, going with ThousandEyes can absorb a lot of those features and save on OpEx compared to running two different tools. ThousandEyes also does a great job with reports. A great example of this is tracking availability/uptime. You can build reports including information like "what percentage of time was I not down" and put together reports about how many nines you had last month and pat yourself on the back. If you didn't have a great month, it's possible to isolate incidents that may have led to that reduced uptime, and help yourself find leverage for upgrades or enhancement. As with any tool, ThousandEyes is not going to be a good fit for your organization if only one or two individuals are ever going to use it. At its core, it really shines as a collaborative troubleshooting tool; if you're the only one troubleshooting through ThousandEyes and other people or departments are using other tools, its usefulness starts to fade a bit.

Pros

Monitis

  • Monitis is very strong in networks
  • Monitis is valuable in all the monitoring procedures relating to telephony and general control of lines.
  • The administration of networks in the servers allows an adequate and centralized control.

ThousandEyes

  • Agent to Agent testing. Full round trip test. Have a customer using a Server Side API that is having an issue. Loan a Nuc, or have them install the ThousandEyes agent in their network. You'll find the issue guaranteed.
  • Device Layer vision - ability to see from the server, through the Firewall, switches Proxy and internet. Measure jitter, latency, response time, load time and see the path your packet takes.
  • Share your tests live. Provide the customer a link to a live test, they can see what you do, review your metrics and verify your tests. They can also use it as a tool to better their service. Build the trust and stickiness with your customers' most difficult users - the IT Operations team.
  • Validate your QOS and routes for VOIP, video conferences, and data traffic. Highly flexible and configurable complete with transaction-based testing, custom headers, calls and tools to mimic any scenario you need.

Cons

Monitis

  • User experience
  • URL sharing
Tomasz Sikora | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThousandEyes

  • The EndPoint agent (client installed on the user's PC) has very limited functionality, mostly only to monitor web (HTTP/HTTPS) transactions.
  • Synthetic monitoring only emulates connections to the respective server or other ThousandEyes agents. It does NOT emulate actual end-user transactions.

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.

ThousandEyes

ThousandEyes stands out from its competition on the below points:1) Their endpoint stability and robustness are better than other tools, which ensures that we detect even minor disruption in our services.2) Reporting & Alerting in ThousandEyes is far better than its competitors. 3) ThousandEyes' gui is web-based, with an easy to use design.4) It can integrate well with other interfaces, hence making it adjustable to your current setup.

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.
Jose Raul Faria | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThousandEyes

  • We use the product to monitor our servers/hardware and added an APM tool to measure application specific performance. Between the two products we were able to save money over a previous solution.
  • ThousandEyes has a fast and efficient sales force and it is easy to get started with the product. You get to ROI faster with the tool because there is less overhead up front and the company is easy to contract with.
  • We are able to get real time hardware data on our environment that we can TRUST! Overall this product has already paid for itself.
