Accedian Skylight Previous Solutions

We didn't have a solution seven years ago, before this one. I know that determining problems used to be difficult. The reason why we bought Skylight, which, in the past, I knew as Secure Active, was that at that point in time we had some serious issues with printers at locations where the bandwidth usage was really high. We couldn't figure out what was happening, which jobs were the issue. With Skylight we found the exact times when printer calls were made. We saw from whom and where to; from all the sites. Something was sent to that printer and then this printer. It was just a matter of looking into the printer information and finding out what kind of print job it was. We found out that PostScript was s badly configured on some spoolers, so we needed to change the PostScript driver/configuration. But before we had SkyLIGHT, we had months of issues and there was always a time crunch involved in figuring out why some agencies were slow. We saw peaks but we couldn't figure out why there were some serious peaks. That's when we figured out the PostScript drivers were badly configured, simply because some of printing jobs were 50 megabytes or 100 megabytes for only two or three pages. There was something terribly wrong with drivers/configuration. View full review »

We are using PRTG and Nimsoft. These are more general monitoring tools, not specialized in network analysis. We are also using a network tool for latency. View full review »
