It scales very well to our network and we have a very large network

Monitoring network devices using SNMP. It works very well. 

How has it helped my organization?

  • Scalability
  • The ability to have multiple pieces of information on the same screen. 

What is most valuable?

  • The flexibility
  • The ability to view the data the way we want it. 

What needs improvement?

More data visualization, the way that we are looking at data, we want to be able to see it in different ways. So, we are looking to expand the visualization of that data.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable. We have had issues, but we have worked through those issues with CA, and they have been successfully resolved. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It scales very well to our network. We have a very large network. Finding a solution that can actually monitor all the devices and interfaces, this product has been able to do that.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very good. They have performed to our expectations.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were previously using a different solution, however CA purchased that solution.

How was the initial setup?

Due to our environment, it was complex. The product itself is simple. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

SevOne.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: 

  • Stability
  • The size of the company
  • The ability to respond to our needs and meet our needs. 
  • The breadth of software that they have available for what we are looking to do.
