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.

Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold

It's best suited for large/multinational organisations with complex networks with limited qualified personnel across every location. However, I wouldn't recommend it for a small organisation with a very simple network architecture.

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.

Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold

  • Monitoring the connection; performance, switching, and issues. We use a broadband connection for our primary and a cellular backup for the secondary. While we use routing protocols to make this switch and WhatsUp isn't used for Syslog monitoring. it alerts us within seconds.
  • Backup configurations and archiving. WhatsUp does this particularly well. I use it for both Cisco routers and switches.
  • The diagram feature is nice. Though I don't use it as much because of the size of our structure, it does come in handy for mapping routes of all traffic.

Cons

Monitis

  • User experience
  • URL sharing

Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold

  • Sales staff can be a bit pushy in terms of selling more product than you need. This is not unique to What's Up but it can be a bit unwelcome once you have already purchased the product.
  • Updates could be a little easier but overall not too bad. Once or twice we have had to start over with a new server when upgrading to a major numbered revision.
  • IIS site can be a bit slow at times. This could just be our setup but I have noticed that it can be slow to respond during high traffic times. It does always respond and work properly but the wait time to move from screen to screen could be lower.

Not too much to support as it doesn't do that much.

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.

For the sake of simplicity, WhatsUp Gold is better. It is cheaper and more cost-effective for what we need. I am sure it will scale up easily in the future if that growth comes.

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.

Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold

  • Ability to maintain network equipment inventory and health reports.
  • Inability to make the backups of the device using scripting or configurations of network devices.
  • Less graphical representation of circuit or network traffic.
