Good out-of-the box capability but we feel the company is lagging in development

What is our primary use case?

We're a managed service provider so we monitor customers and their networks and infrastructure and we're their support. We're a customer of DX and I'm a services infrastructure architect.

Pros and Cons

  • "Great out-of-the-box capability."
  • "The company has not kept pace with developments."

What other advice do I have?

Cloud vendors have expanded their services and features and functions within their own platforms. Having to rely on a third-party to keep pace with that development cycle has proven rather disappointing. That's why we're looking for a tool that has the capability to enable us to extend the tool on our own, if we choose to. I don't think I would recommend this product.

Good health checks help to identify infrastructure performance, good drill-down features, and easy to set up

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for Network Monitoring.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ability to put health checks in place not only for the infrastructure but for some of the services that are on top of the infrastructure."
  • "Integration with some other tools, and integration with some Network Packet Broker, need some improvement."

What other advice do I have?

We are still looking at other solutions to increase the capacity of the devices that are being monitored with DX Spectrum. We have a small set of devices being monitored and we are running a project to try to duplicate the monitoring on those devices. DX Spectrum has been great for us. It's the strongest available, the main problem is the pricing, but it's in accordance with the features. I can recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it. I would rate DX Spectrum an eight out of ten.
