CA Spectrum Review

I would like to see better scalability as we are currently using it for SNMP trap management


What is our primary use case?

Mostly SNMP trap management.

How has it helped my organization?

I am fairly new to the product end of the solution. We have not utilized it to its full capabilities yet. I think we are still trying to figure out how to get the most out of it. 

What is most valuable?

The network mapping functionality.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better scalability, and maybe, a more intuitive user interface. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It seems fairly stable. We have had some issues with the spec server and the high availability replication of data. It fails over well, but it does not come back very well. We get duplicated events. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It seems okay, but not great. 

How is customer service and technical support?

Good, if you get the right people. 

How was the initial setup?

I was not involved in the initial setup.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have looked a little into open source solutions.

What other advice do I have?

The product is not terrible, but not great.
