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.

Redgate SQL Monitor

Redgate SQL Monitor is well suited for database administrators or companies who implement software that relies on SQL servers. It will help them test new changes and ensure this will not impact the performance of their software. It is a last resort for MSPs to use to get to the bottom of an ongoing performance issue with their SQL server.

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.

Redgate SQL Monitor

  • It will tell you if your server is under attack.
  • You can quickly see how your server is performing and which queries are taking the longest
  • I gives you the feeling that you are in control of your database, that you know what is going on for when they users ring up and tell you that the server is slow

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.

Redgate SQL Monitor

  • Incremental releases can be buggy
  • Isn't the best for pinpointing performance issues
  • Web interface can be sluggish

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.

Redgate SQL Monitor

Redgate SQL Monitor is a lot cheaper than SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer. I prefer the SolarWinds' design and that it offers integration with other SolarWinds products we already use. SolarWinds supports more than SQL servers (Oracle, MySQL, Maria DB, IBM DB2) and the analysis seems to be much better. The Spiceworks SQL Server monitoring is a free tool and is ideal for monitoring small business SQL instances.

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

Redgate SQL Monitor

  • The quality of the product and give a negative investment impression, on the plus side when it does work it is a god send.
  • Day to day tasks as made simpler, and a feeling of security of realised. Just don't change anything.
