Obkio Overview

What is Obkio?

Obkio is a cloud-based network performance monitoring tool that assists IT teams with session analysis and data collection. Its key features include bandwidth troubleshooting, network analysis, historical auditing, end-user simulation and deployment management.

The application comes with a module which sends packets to simulate the end user perspective and updates deployed software automatically. A centralized dashboard lets users visualize network data and performance graphs, and provides regular notifications. The experience quality feature converts performance metrics into a quality score based on the end-user experience.

Obkio enables team members to analyze performance parameters in real time and compare it with historical data to identify trends. It comes with an application monitoring tool which runs tests to report incidents and pinpoints intermittent issues. The system’s public agent feature allows users to add agents located in major cloud providers such as AWS, Azure and Google, to their Obkio account.

Obkio Network Monitoring

We have used Obkio in a variety of situations, both for managed service customers as well as network assessment projects. Non technical users at sites are able to quickly install the physical sensors in their offices allowing rapid assessment of WAN performance. With a few sensors we were able to diagnose a complex VPN based WAN servicing 2000 independent offices. We also were able to assess issues in a traditional MPLS architecture and provide actionable measurements to the service provider. Throughout the deployment and analysis process we received excellent support from the Obkio team.

A tool that was missing before

Obkio helped us better understand the network bottlenecks our customers experienced. Now, we are able to pin-point the exact link that's causing issues. Even more, we can fix issues before the client calls us since we get alerts before the performance is too degraded. Overall, this is a perfect tool for any network engineers & VoIP technicians!

Pros

Obkio was very easy to deploy and use, provides detailed network performance visibility without needing access to network equipment.

Cons

There are very few things I don't like about Obkio, however since I need to fill in this field The only issue we've had is with cost, especially for a network with a larger number of sites. The growing feature set is improving the value proposition over time and it's easy to adjust the size of your deployment monthly based on your needs at a specific time.

Pros

It's full of stats. You get instant alerts. They have public agents in the 3 biggest cloud providers at the moment (Azure, Google and AWS). They have hardware agents when needed. Oh, and they listen to the customer, which is awesome!

Cons

It is priced fairly low for the amount of features you get. Also, they are constantly working on making it better with more features and public agents.

Great team thst is big enough to deliver quality but still small enough to deliver that personal touch

Pros

Instananious value in getting a quick and clear view of problem areas on the network, internet service provider, managed service providers simply overlook.

Cons

Some refinment needs to be added to the alerting functions but this is a minimal thing that does not take away from the value of the product
