Customers Love Obkio's Network Monitoring Tool

“Obkio is simply amazing. The visibility you get of your network, LAN/WAN, is astounding. I have not seen anything else out there to diagnose issues users may encounter. It can help you pinpoint a device acting up or ISPs not giving you the real info when possibly at fault. It’s a must for any serious business, especially in this new remote work reality. With the Obkio Vision Traceroute feature, it keeps getting better!”
Alain Lautru
Solution Prescriber
“We do not consider Obkio to be an excessive expense, but rather as an investment that generates time savings and therefore money. When our technicians are not doing support, they can work on other projects billed at a high hourly rate. It's a simple calculation: the tool pays for itself.”
Daniel Sarrasin

Visualize the Performance of All Network Paths At A Glance

No one does it like Obkio. Our Chord Diagram gives you live network status like no other.

Other monitoring solutions try to give you network performance at a glance, but most time, you don’t really know what you’re looking at.

Save Time and Proactively Identify Issues that Matter.

Obkio is the Kentik Alternative that actually tells you what happened, when, where, and why.

While some monitoring solutions flood you with alerts for every device status change, leading to important alerts getting lost in the noise, Obkio takes a smarter approach.

We employ synthetic monitoring and thresholds to continuously monitor performance, pinpoint issues, and send alerts tailored to the ones impacting your network performance and user experience. Detect bottlenecks, latency problems, packet loss, and jitter issues as they occur, complete with details on when, why, and where they occurred.
