Neustar Webmetrics

If you need to gauge whether your site is up or down, then Neustar will give you exactly what you are looking for. However, if you need more granularity for specific application or sub-systems and their functionality, this product will need to be subsidized with other applications that provide more data or information on how individual components or systems are working.

Pros

Neustar Webmetrics

  • It allows access to a history of checks, how much time they took, and if any errors were detected.
  • It can alert several people, or many in a group, for information related to the application availability.
  • When drilling down into the check, the logs can pinpoint the exact time and code events and how long each step took to respond.

Cons

Neustar Webmetrics

  • The interface can be buggy.
  • We have experienced false positives of a system outage that was not accurate.
  • It's not a true measure of system performance or uptime, but simply judges up or down from a holistic view.

Alternatives Considered

Neustar Webmetrics

To be honest, I am not certain why this product was initially chosen over other products. It was being used when I started working at a new job. I was trained on its use and focused on tracking issues when an alert was given. There are many products that can be used for monitoring site uptime. Neustar definitely has its uses for monitoring if a site is up or down, but its lack of granularity can turn some away.

Pandora FMS

Before using Pandora FMS, tests were carried out with all these tools:
  • Nagios
  • Zabbix
  • System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
  • IBM Tivoli
  • PRTG
  • SolarWinds
Pandora FMS allows simple customization by making adjustments to text files, developing agent add-ons without the need to be a programmer, there is no scenario where we could not take data and save it in PandoraFMS, IoT, industrial products, and everything that any client needs to monitor.

Return on Investment

Neustar Webmetrics

  • Our company at one time gauged overall system uptime using Neustar WebMetrics to provide this data
  • Due to the limitations with the applications ability to show system functionality and uptime we have begun using other methods for determining system uptime for our customers.
  • The interface can be a bit tricky to understand during first use. There is somewhat of a learning curve.
Tyler Twitchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pandora FMS

  • It is a tool with an appropriate cost that allows to have results in a very limited time.
  • Having a health dashboard and alerts of important business in the company is an important differential with any other monitoring solution on the market.
  • Monitoring can be adjusted to the business, considering service SLAs and adjusting the platform according to the needs of each department of the company.
