Network Specialist
The metrics that it's able to track and that it's able to trend, Keep in mind, because we have not updated, it's to the point where I've got to build a complete separate system with the latest version, and then map over all the users and customization, etc, then swap IPs to bring the previous system down so that we'll be on the latest. There are about two years worth of updates that I'm missing out on at the moment. I'm hoping that there are a lot of updates and nice, new features that have been added. So, really, I've been in the dark ages as far as running for a while now, but the feature that is inherent to its core, of being able to graphically represent a trend and status, is nice.

John Simpkins says in a CA Spectrum review
Network Systems Integration Engineer at University of Michigan Health System
Spectrum allows us to have a holistic view of our network architecture. We have a pretty heterogeneous topology at U of M, we're a half Cisco, half Juniper shop, and we have multiple layers to our network topology. So, it's really important for us to be able to do that topological map, and be able to visualize the network state at any given time. View full review »

Ernest Szeideman says in a BMC TrueSight Network Automation review
Senior Security Solution Architect at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
The dashboard is very useful to us as is the Presentation Server interface, in terms of policy creation and configuration and use of the tool. There's a much cleaner approach to the dashboards now in TrueSight versus what they had previously. Previously it was more cumbersome to be able to display the data that is required to do our jobs. Different people have different functions, and as a part of those functions, they need to look at different types of data. My managers are interested in things like, the number of tickets that are open. How long did it take to address an incident? How long did it take to close an incident? Things like that with SLAs. Whereas the support people want to just know that the incident has come in and to be able to look at it and correlate that data with other data to determine what the actual problem is. Depending on who's looking at the data, they need to configure that data in different ways, and the dashboards help us to do that better than what was previously available. View full review »
reviewer1028739 says in a CA Performance Management review
ITSM consultant at a tech services company
One feature I like about CA Performance Management is the certification of the devices. This solution is very functional, but it's not suitable for medium and small customers, which is the case in most of the markets in Europe. There are a few huge customers, but most of them are taken directly by the provider. View full review »
Senior Solutions Systems Engineer at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
From my experience, the most valuable features are the configuration changes. Also, compliance is important, because we have worked with a bank. Then, in some of the government agencies that I have work on, the server upgrade of SSD deployment. Backup and restore configurations are helpful for a number of network devices, as you can automate them, then know what changes have been done, who made the changes, etc. So, it's quite helpful in the network management area. With patching, If you have multiple devices and the same model, then you can deploy using this tool. It's quite helpful other than doing it manually. The tool will do it for you rather than you logging onto the device and doing the commands. For patching, it is helpful if the tool can assist on multiple devices with the same model or brand. Therefore, you just have to wait and require it to reboot based on the patch information. View full review »
Network Engineer at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees
We use it to back up configurations so the configuration management is valuable for us. Another valuable feature is the ability to verify that the devices comply with our standards. Compliance is important because we want all of our devices to have the same, consistent configuration. The reporting is also good. We run reports monthly to see what devices are compliant with our standards and we use the reports to correct deficiencies. View full review »
Cris Jovellanos says in an ExtremeManagement review
Managing Director at Xtreme Works, Inc.
The most valuable feature is the ability to manage different configurations for different switches. When I modify a configuration there is a history, and I can roll back to a previous version if I need to. The history contains a store of all of the previous configurations. I can also automate the configuration process. For example, if I have to replace something on a malfunctioning switch then I can put in the serial number and it will continue on its own. I don't need a trained person to be on-site to replace the switch. When it comes to configuration and management, I can even take care of these tasks remotely. View full review »

Senior Consultant at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
For us, the multi-tenancy is very important, of course. The scalability is also important because we have customers in the system with only a small number of devices, say, 50, but we also have customers with more than 10,000 devices. The scalability is very good, amazing. There have been a lot of changes which were very good in the last few years of development. One of them is that they brought together Spectrum and the performance data, since Performance Management 3.6. They also have the alarm information in Performance Center which is very helpful to have in one tool. View full review »

Consulta1872 says in a CA Performance Management review
Consultant at a tech vendor with 11-50 employees
* Dashboards - They look nice and fancy and are pretty impressive. * Alerting - This helps the admin save time. It's not only interesting to know if routers and switches are up or down at the moment, but also when a specific interface is filled to the max. You can create intelligent alerts so you have enough time to replace the router or interface before it's full. The same is applicable for CBQoS channels. View full review »

SeniorSy38e7 says in a CA Performance Management review
Senior Systems Engineer
It is very easy to add devices; just be aware that it requires SNMP to be enabled. It is very easy to use because most of the administrative tasks through the UI are documented. If I have any doubt, I can just go to the CS support. In the UI itself, you have a lot of helpful information on each administrative task, such as adding a special profile, conferring the vendors' specifications. The documentation is very good, they have the documents up to date. View full review »
