ScienceLogic Review

We were growing rapidly and found that we had too many tools which needed to be consolidated.


Valuable Features:

ScienceLogic works with us to solve our problems and make our services better. We were able to reduce faults and nuisance alarms by 40 percent within a short time of implementing and using the ScienceLogic platform.

Improvements to My Organization:

We chose the ScienceLogic platform because it really met and exceeded all of the requirements that we had put forth in the RFI. We will be moving a lot more services off premises to cloud providers and ScienceLogic already provides monitoring capabilities for public cloud providers. It fits in very well with what we expect to be doing in the future.

The number one requirement was the ability for the product to import our MIB files and start monitoring our custom applications right away. Because we produce our own custom equipment and applications the ease with which we could make our own custom monitoring templates was quite important to us. We were able to set-up our custom monitoring with very little support from ScienceLogic and that was something many of the other vendors we evaluated surprisingly couldn't actually do.

The platform has helped us streamline our processes for event management and the entire way we monitor our services. One of the ways we restored the confidence in our NOC operations folks was combining SNMP collected objects with other objects to reduce faults and nuisance alarms.

Previous Solutions:

We were growing very rapidly and what we found was that we had too many tools. We had one tool for SNMP monitoring, another tool for monitoring infrastructure, a third tool for making graphs and reports plus a whole slew of home-grown scripts. We were worried that NOC operations would start to lose confidence in the tool sets which required a lot of extra training.

Other Solutions Considered:

We interviewed many different vendors looking for the right solution to meet our requirements. We narrowed it down to a couple candidates and actually did a bake-off at our offices.

Other Advice:

You don't need an army of consultants to get really good results out of the toolset. They've met all of our requirements plus other requirements that were less tangible in the RFI.
