It is a good tool to monitor applications availability and some basic metrics, and it provides very good integration with other tools like OpsGenie through which you can increase the boundaries of features that Pingdom provides and it is a good tool to purchase if your use case is similar. I have been using this tool for more than 2 years and I like it.

As I mentioned earlier, for us, the product's "Uptime" service fits us like a glove in terms of monitoring the health / availability / uptime / response time / outages of our servers/services, by alerting us in real time on problematic events. It's UI/UX is very user-friendly, no need to be an expert to add or configure existing monitoring rules. Another advantage is the simplicity of deciding and configuring how would you like to be alerted (for example - we use both Slack and email alerts).

it is very well suited for those environments who are using Saas-based applications or web-based applications and they require in-depth application monitoring and multiple applications at a time, rather than the physical server-based monitoring for in-house applications where monitoring can be done by other SolarWinds products and not very well suited for pingdom.

Overall, I feel SolarWinds Pingdom is a great product at a very reasonable price, it does it's job fairly well and for the most part we are happy with the product and will continue to use it to monitor our production workloads to ensure we meet SLAs and maintain the highest uptime possible for our customers. The integration with OpsGenie greatly helps with this as we can be paged 24/7 should a downtime event be encountered. Unfortunately, support for this product is not the best, and we have had some back and forth discussions regarding some bugs in their API, as we have a large number of workloads being monitored, not being able to use an API to maintain all these workloads is a massive bottleneck. Thankfully for the most part, the API is good and we have been able to workaround this issue, but it would be nice if the Support was more attentive and the problem we encountered was resolved.

It was a good cheap option for us to incorporate an external monitoring solution for our business-critical websites and services. We have not used any other features it provides. Since we are a small shop with limited IT staff, we don't need multiple users, just a simple monitoring solution that will alert staff when there is an issue.

I've found Pingdom to be the best solution for relatively simple uptime checks when you need a reliable way to run those checks and alert on failures. I haven't used their transaction monitoring or Real User Monitoring features but it may be great at those too.

The best use case for our Pingdom implementation is to monitor uptime, from multiple locations, publicly accessible web endpoints. For that use case, it is invaluable. The use cases where Pingdom lacks is being able to monitor private resources. It also lacks the ability to troubleshoot code-level errors.

The tool is well suited to create custom monitoring from the user's perspective. When you need a detailed overview on how your tool performs remotely from multiple locations, this tool is for you. Since it also supports custom ways to gather this view, it's easy to adapt to your needs, and monitor your custom applications and services as well.

It is great for monitoring website uptime and IPs associated with commercial internet services. We don't use it for anything else, so we don't have a sense of what it isn't good for in this regard. We are pleased with the service and plan to continue using it for the foreseeable future.

  • Well suited for simple uptime monitoring for a few services in a startup with flat pricing and/or for transactional monitoring (synthetic tests).
  • Well suited for integrating with Atlassian Statuspage.
  • Not well suited if you need some advanced monitoring that requires gathering metrics from the host.

It's simple to use and quick to set up for monitoring uptime for websites. It can also be useful whether you own and manage the websites, or whether you use a service provider and just want to keep tabs on the level of service provided. The charting and tracking can be very effective for that.

Very good for our business and we happily recommend this to others. Industry-leading service with fair prices. Scenarios are like FTP uptime check, web (port 80) check as well as database port up or down checks. Works great and you are getting a summary every month with a report of uptime.

SolarWinds Pingdom is best suited for companies seeking a solution to notify them if they have servers that are down. There are other solutions, which provide for a rich and full system solution, but I think they're the best at one of the most important needs for any company with a customer facing server: down/up status.

Where you are aiming for simplicity in the tool. It's not the full lifecycle or has the features of tools like DataDog or New Relic in monitoring and understanding what is happening in your stack. It's basically a nice PING feature ;-) Hence the name. If you want to monitor all layers of your tech stack, this isn't the right tool. Want to know if some things are up and running, just fine!

If you have a website that experiences heavy traffic or will experience money lost due to any potential downtime, Pingdom is an essential tool. You have the option to pick from four different plans depending on which one works better for your website. However, if you have a website that does not meet either of those two scenarios, I don't believe Pingdom is a necessity.

SolarWind Pingdom seems to have the experience and expertise at monitoring websites and services uptime. I have been using it for 7 years without issues. I would like to use it more often and not just for these panic attacks moment when I get a message that something is wrong

Well suited for external apps that are easily publicly accessible, which need constant monitoring--high uptime and fast performance are the sweet spot. When knowing first is key, this is the way to always be leading the charge. Internal apps behind passwords, firewalls, etc. are much harder to set up.

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.

Corporate data center migrations are highly sensitive to any type of outage. During live system cutovers, network migrations and integration between data centers, Pingdom was used to check system communications and response times prior to, during and after the network activities. By monitoring the systems along with reports generated I was able to see the issues and address them quickly.
