Overall Satisfaction with ThousandEyes

We are using ThousandEyes to monitor server/hardware availability. The tool works very well and requires very little overhead/maintenance as it is a SaaS product. We have really been impressed with the power that the tool offers and it is a big improvement over our previous hardware monitoring solution.


  • Hardware/Server Monitoring is the core functionality and it does it very well.
  • The alerting engine is very powerful and easy to administer and configure.
  • The interface is very easy to use and the menu system is easy to navigate and find what you are looking for.
  • The search options work well and allow you to easily find data.


  • It is a not a true network monitoring/troubleshooting platform even though users sometimes try to use it as such. We initially purchased the product for just Network monitoring and found it lacking in certain areas. There are far superior tools built specifically for Network Monitoring.
  • Support is average at best and this is a place where lots of product companies stumble. They are not bad at support, but just average.
  • Alerting is powerful but you can easily get lost in the options if you are not careful and end up blasting users with tons of emails. Need to get training and experiment with a small user base before enterprise rollout.
  • 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.
We selected ThousandEyes because we liked the ease of use of a SaaS platform that was easy to configure and begin collecting data on our network. The price point was also a deciding factor as we saved a lot of money on an annual basis and got improved functionality.
Great product, much better than some of the competing products and the contracting options are plentiful and it is generally cheaper than competing products. You get a lot of value for your money!
