"VividCortex has been useful to determine glaring inefficiencies and misconfigured system variables"

What do you like best?

I like the visibility VividCortex gives into our MongoDB servers. It has been helpful to check in periodically (1x a week) and see if there are problematic queries or consistently high CPU on a database server.

What do you dislike?

Some of the graphs are pretty buried in the UI. This is largely the result of the app having so many different types of functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Getting on the phone with a representative is a good way to get your team up to speed with the product and learn some industry best practices. Those insights can help make an immediate difference in the performance of you database servers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We try to optimize the performance of our existing MongoDB servers. Reconfiguring the iops on one of the servers helped alleviate CPU issues.

"Really useful monitoring tool for tracking down and identifying slow SQL queries"

What do you like best?

VividCortex is a very useful tool that we use for evaluating and identifying problematic SQL queries running in our production codebase. After identifying the query, we can use the metadata and details VividCortex tracks to hunt down ways to optimize our queries. VividCortex is also able to give us the raw SQL query that has been used, which is very useful in many of our debugging scenarios. We have been able to catch problematic queries and resolve them before too many users were affected, and we have also been able to mitigate problems effectively in real time as they arose. This product has helped us improve customer satisfaction and minimize the lag times in key transactions our application performs.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much to dislike about the product - it could be designed to be a bit more intuitive or easy to use out of the box, but it should be pretty straightforward with a little bit of guidance. Overall, the interface is still clean, aesthetic, and neat enough from a usability standpoint.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely consider this product if you or your company rely on key SQL queries to run your application. Being able to track your queries' performance over time and in the moment allows you to foresee issues in your codebase or fix current problems you may be having already.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using this software to keep track of key SQL queries in our database. VividCortex allows us to catch, investigate, and fix these small queries in a short amount of time before users see it. This helps us with our customer retention and satisfaction rates.
