Statseeker Review

Allows us to poll tens of thousands of interfaces at short intervals


What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is fault management.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has helped us to proactively identify issues and push some of those fixes down to tier one.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the quick retrieval of performance data, and its ability to poll tens of thousands of interfaces at short intervals.

The single pane of glass for fault and performance data is very helpful.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see NetFlow improved, with better reporting capabilities that are similar to Scrutinizer.

I would like to see some layer two and layer three topology mappings, similar to what NNMi and SolarWinds presents. For fault, it's very good, but for tier one, they like to see pictures.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a very stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of this solution is very good.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate their technical support a nine out of ten.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used HP NNMi prior to this solution. However, they out-priced themselves so we switched.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for this solution is straightforward. This is a turnkey solution and it is very easy to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented the solution myself.

What was our ROI?

We have not seen ROI.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have used SolarWinds and HP NNMi. We decided that Statseeker was by far the best solution.

What other advice do I have?

My suggestion for anybody considering this solution is to evaluate at least four other products to see what works best.

I think that the NetFlow portion of the solution needs to be enhanced, but the fault and performance stuff is solid.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
