What is Obkio?

Obkio is a simple Network Monitoring and Troubleshooting SaaS solution designed to monitor end-to-end network performance (from WAN to LAN), of all networks types (SD-WAN, MPLS, VPNs, Cloud) from the end user perspective.

Key benefits of using Obkio

- End-to-End Monitoring: Obkio covers your whole network by monitoring your local network (LAN, VPN), as well as third-party networks (WAN, ISP, and Internet Peering).

- Distributed Architecture: Obkio uses a distributed monitoring strategy to monitor modern network architectures (cloud, SaaS, SD-WAN, MPLS) and the real end-user experience.

- Network Metric Measurement: Obkio understands and measures the performance metrics that matter most. Obkio uses synthetic traffic to monitor key network metrics like jitter, packet loss, latency, VoIP Quality (using MOS Score), network speed, QoS and more.

- Monitor Network Devices: Monitor metrics related to network devices like bandwidth and CPU usage as well.

- Network Problem Identification: Obkio uses tools like Obkio’s Advanced Visual Traceroute tool, Obkio Vision, to monitor performance and identify intermittent network issues in your local network or Service Provider's network.

- Proactive Troubleshooting: With continuous monitoring, Obkio identifies network problems as soon as they happen (even before your users do), and collect the data you need to troubleshoot as fast as possible.

An Accurate, Easy-to-Use, Easy-to-Deploy Network Performance Tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

We provide Hosted VoIP Services to our customers, so having the ability to quickly and easily determine internet service performance is crucial, and no company that we have found offers the flexibility, accuracy and ease-of-use of Obkio.

Pros

Accurate internet performance measurement and monitoring Ease of use Ease of deployment Support for Raspberry Pi, Windows and Linux Detailed breakdown of performance issues using weighted scoring

Cons

The ability to generate detailed historical reports is missing, but I believe they are working on that. We would like to be able to have more options for exporting the current monitoring view with the titles and labels.

Vendor response

Hello Kevin, Thank you so much for taking the time to post this great review! We're so happy that Obkio was able to help you with performance issues and we're always looking to improve our solution. We are actually currently working on more reporting functionalities and hope to release them during our next feature release. Cheers, The Obkio Team

Network monitoring

Reviewed 3 years ago

Obkio is a tool that helps us every day to diagnose network problems. It gives us visibility on the latency of internal and external links. It is a very simple tool to deploy and gives us added value on day 1. The Obkio team guided us to be productive quickly. I recommend this product to anyone who administers networks.

Pros

Easy to deploy and dashboarding easy to use

Cons

Nothing the product offers a lot and is still in development

Great insights into network performance

Reviewed 3 years ago

The team there is highly responsive to feature requests and is a pleasure to work with.

Pros

We've been using the Obkio platform internally, as well as deployed to customers, for just about 2 years now. What's kept us on the platform despite many alternatives being pitched to us is the simplicity in setup, combined with the excellent reports generated. It's quite easy to pre-stage devices before they go onsite so you start getting alerts and data within minutes of it coming online. There's also an excellent API available if you want to pull some statistics of your own, and the developers are fantastic to work with.

Cons

The licensing for extra administrators can be a little confusing at first, when we run into this issue we usually make single read only account that is shared amongst people interested in looking at the reports.

Vendor response

Hello Mike, Thank you so much for your positive feedback and for taking the time to post this review! We're so glad that you're enjoying Obkio and that our team has been able to help as well! It's our customers that allow us to constantly improve so we'll be looking into our licensing model to hopefully make it clearer for our users. All the best, The Obkio Team
