The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

All drill-down features and the utilization calendar chart. Quick way to find time period when the router interface is most utilized and to troubleshoot further by zooming into that period with a smaller level of resolution (1 minute) to find... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We can locate the source of network performance problems easier than before, so it saves a lot of time when troubleshooting.

What needs improvement?

I can’t really say, as there are some areas that I haven’t used yet. For instance, always found that the graphs generated by “Capacity Planning” looked kind of odd and didn’t seem to be useful. I cannot comment on Growth Report, AS Numbers,... more»

The ability to configure the application's communication profiles. If correctly configured, then it allows the user to quickly diagnose issues for the application in areas of responsibility: network issue, server issue, application issue.

Being able to diagnose where an issue is for an application is vital. Instead of spending your time figuring out which group (Network, Server, or Application) you should troubleshoot, you can involve the team that needs to troubleshoot. This... more»

What is most valuable?

I have found three features to be most valuable: custom reporting, flow forensics, and traffic alerts by Trap SNMP. Custom reporting – We can add filters by interface, port, and host. Flow forensic – We can play with all fields-of-flow... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Like consultants, I deploy on many companies by region. In some companies, 100% growth is observed. For this to occur, there must be network traffic knowledge and action, especially among pertinent teams like: Network Management, System... more»

What needs improvement?

Enhanced support should be given with APIs that work to maintain collected information. Historically, there were tools that were very useful for this task. Unfortunately, they were discontinued.

What is most valuable?

The custom report is the most valuable feature. Because network flow analysis is a very common tool, I can easily find a free NFA tool through the internet. However, the only difference between them and this solution is how they present the... more»

How has it helped my organization?

With daily reports, our customers can easily find out the utilization of their bandwidth, protocols, source IP and destination IP. Those elements are importance references for them to make a monitoring report.

What needs improvement?

I wish it had a user-friendly dashboard and not just a huge list of router/switch information.

What do you think of LinkSprinter?

This is by far the best tester we have used.  Every single wiring/network/telecomm technician should have one of these in their tool bag. It will immediately send you an email with the results of your network test or you may login to the link-live cloud service to view and export the information. In about 15 seconds the visual indicators on the tester will tell you:  Do I have POE? Can I ping the gateway? Can I acquire an address? Can I ping the internet? You can sync this to your mobile device if your looking for additional information - Like the switch name, port and VLAN you are using. No more tracing patch cords in the data closet! How about a quick cable test? Yep,...
