Quotes From Members Comparing Catchpoint vs Datadog

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
We really need the API monitoring, as well as client side session monitoring, the global synthetic monitoring, to track the availability of the systems from the customer side.The thing I like most is the tech support in this company, because they have 24/7 chat support. We can chat immediately and ask them about an issue and they keep responding. They create tickets on our behalf and respond.

Excellent autocomplete for everything in the UI.It has empowered all our platform engineers with a very powerful and easy to use monitoring system.Going from viewing a metric to creating a monitor alerting on a metric is very easy.The web app has a real-time support chat window in which a support engineer is chatting with you within a minute.By moving to Datadog, we did not need to manage our own monitoring infrastructure anymore.The most valuable features have been: Sharable dashboards, TimeBoards, dogstatsd API, Slack Integration, Event logging API. CloudTrail Events, Tags, alerts, and anomaly detection. EBS Volume Snapshot Age, which they added upon request.

Cons
if we need to do performance analysis, we have to click too many times. For example, if there is an issue that is caught by Catchpoint, we need to understand what the error is and at which step it failed, or which transaction that is impacted. To drill down, we have to click too many things to get the answer.Trending needs improvement. Currently, out-of-the-box, they provide only seven days availability. So, we have to do queries and we have to go into a separate analysis module, we have to run lot of queries to long-term trends.

​It would be nice to be able to graph metrics by excluding certain tags (like you can do in monitors).It would also be nice if we had more insight into our own usage of Datadog (agents and custom metrics). They provide a usage page which does help, but it is not in real-time.It would be great if usage metrics were automatically created and we could create custom metrics, instead we ended up building some of our own stuff to track and alert on our own usage.More granular control over dashboard sharing. Timeboard sharing.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price and licensing are very, very high. They have to come down on the pricing to match with the industry standard.

​Pricing seems reasonable. It depends on the size of your organization, the size of your infrastructure, and what portion of your overall business costs go toward infrastructure.
