One of the first things I'll do is look into bandwidth. With the bandwidth, I usually already have an idea if there is an issue or not. And I'll have a look into the errors of course. If it's something related to HTTP or VoIP, then I can have a quick look into the protocols, a process which gives me some good ideas too. The response times, with the performance, are really interesting too, where you can see the packet loss. View full review »

The application modules are quite interesting. I mainly use a CTP module, but I also use a SQL module as well to note the queries sent to the database. We are going to use another module for Active Directory. What is also very interesting is capturing traffic. The solution generates a PCAP and after we can view the PCAP in Wireshark. Currently, with our configuration, we don't capture the payload of the packets, just the header. But when we want the body, the payload of the packets, we can do a PCAP, and then analyze it within Wireshark. The UI is quite straightforward. We can easily identify the menu we need to get specific statistics. It's okay. We are not yet using the dashboarding, which is a recently added feature. View full review »

All the features are valuable. I am a network engineer, so I principally use the network sensor. I always have the Skylight dashboard on one of my screens. The dashboard used to be very simple, a fixed dashboard, you couldn't change anything on it. But there has been a lot of improvement in the new version. Now you can create your own dashboard, specific to an application, specific to a server, or to something else. The UI is very comfortable, it's very useful. It's very simple to use. It's very simple to explain to someone who doesn't know what a network is. View full review »
