Sematext vs Uptime.com Pricing
When comparing apples-to-apples, Uptime's offers look pretty good. But what are you really paying for? Mostly simple uptime checks! With each plan, you are limited to a very small number of API and page speed checks.
On the other hand, each HTTP monitor from Sematext is capable of uptime, API, and page load speed checks. You are getting significantly more per monitor with Sematext. All for roughly the same
Experience the Power of Unlimited
Uptime.com hinders their users with limited use of some of the most essential elements of observability - the number of users, status pages, and dashboards. If you want unlimited users, you'll have to fork out the big bucks and opt for their Premium, $379 per month plan. Even then, dashboards and status pages are still heavily limited.
Sematext offers unlimited users with any plan, unlimited status pages with the Pro plan, and unlimited dashboards with all RUM plans. We find it much easier to collaborate, share, and visualize when you aren't limited to just a few users, status pages, or dashboards.
Real End-to-end Visibility
Imagine you go to a doctor and all they can do is check you from the outside. They can't check your lungs, heart, or your brain. That's what Uptime.com feels like to us. Observability with Uptime.com is limited. It offers only Synthetic Monitoring and Real User Monitoring, which is just the surface. If you want true insights for your whole stack, then Uptime.com simply isn't enough.
Sematext is more like a doctor who can also listen to your heart. It not only offers Synthetic Monitoring and Real User Monitoring like Uptime.com, but also Log Monitoring and Infrastructure Monitoring. With Sematext, when you get alerted on a failed API check, you can use Log Monitoring to identify the root cause. This is something you can't do with Uptime.com.
No False Positives
One of the common complaints about Uptime.com is the amount of false positives - alerts that tell you that your site is down when in fact it is not. Sometimes these situations happen due to temporary network glitches, but they certainly are inconvenient. Sematext's Consecutive Runs solves this exact problem. When this is enabled, if your monitor fails, Sematext will run that monitor again immediately, up to N times - configurable by you - and alert you only if all those checks fail.
Sleek and Efficient UI
Sematext's user interface is designed with simplicity and clarity in mind. Log in, quickly access the information you need, and seamlessly continue with your tasks without missing a beat. Connect related Apps and view them in a split-screen overview to streamline troubleshooting and enhance your troubleshooting capabilities.
