Technology and features

Technology and features

When it comes to monitoring tools, some core functions can be assessed among all the solutions on the market:

  • The number of checkpoints and their locations
  • The number of users and recipients who can access the monitoring tool and alerts
  • Server and application management
  • Frequency of the tests performed by the monitoring
  • The complexity of the test scenarios: « proof by sentence », « fingerprint »and false positive management.
  • The duration of data storage

If Monitoring by HTTPCS and Uptrends support servers and applications, the two solutions differ on some features.

Uptrends runs all of its tests across 203 checkpoints. However, the fact that checks are performed at a local level is a disadvantage because all the data centers are not used. The Uptrends solution can be used up to 4 people per subscription, and the check frequency varies from 1 to 60 minutes.

For both solutions, the number of users is unlimited.

Just like HTTPCS, Monitis handles web applications monitoring as well as servers, with an every minutes (customizable) check frequency.

HTTPCS, thanks to its exclusive “Virtual Browser” technology, provides a very simple tool to record monitoring scenarios (transaction monitoring tool) with no technical skill required. The scenarios are automatically replayed every 15 minutes by a real browser, and are manually re-playable at any time.

Therefore, HTTPCS has a real technological advantage over Uptrends that does not offer this monitoring scenario feature which is yet essential to ensure the functioning of your websites (retail websites, CMS, business web applications, SaaS applications).

Monitoring by HTTPCS offers 50 checkpoints for its tests, but unlike Uptrends, they are performed throughout the world and not only in a specific regional area. Regarding the test depth, a print or a proof must be set up to make them more accurate.

The collected data is useful to make statistical studies for a company. A long-term data storage is therefore a considerable asset. If Uptrends only keeps its user’s data from 14 days to 2 years depending on its importance, HTTPCS stores it for an unlimited period.

Technology and features
HTTPCS runs a check frequency every minutes (customizable) with 50 checkpoints worldwide. The solution is guaranteed without any false positive. Data is stored for an unlimited period of time and the solution can be used by an unlimited number of users.

Technology and features
Uptrends Monitoring frequency varies between 1 and 60 minutes depending of company’s needs. Although Uptrends has 203 checkpoints for its tests, they are nevertheless performed on a local scale and do not use all the data centers. Recipients are unlimited, and the user’s data is stored between 14 days and 2 years.


Real-time alerts

When an anomaly is detected and identified by the monitoring tool, alerting the user is a key step in the process. It is now possible to set up automatic alerts to be notified of an irregularity in real time.

Monitoring by HTTPCS and Uptrends include this feature in their web monitoring tool by sending text messages and e-mail alerts. Uptrends stands out with its alert system available by integration. This feature is also available on HTTPCS monitoring.

HTTPCS' strength is the unlimited text alerts. Uptrends, on the other hand, only has 240 alerts per month included in its plan.

Alerts are sent in real time by email, text or integration via an API, which allows the company to react quickly. Unlike some monitoring solutions, the formulas include unlimited alerts, regardless of the contact channel. Recipients are also not limited.

Uptrends' alert system is somewhat limited: only 240 monthly alerts are offered, and 4 recipients at most are allowed to receive notifications. Notifications are sent by e-mail, SMS or by API integration.
