Enables us to right-size systems to free up resources, and identify performance problems down to the process level

What is our primary use case?

* We collect performance data on all things, whether it's private cloud or physical servers. * We provide sizing information, performance analysis, and we do forecasting and modeling for when we need more resources. * We identify oversubscribed systems in the environment so that, instead of buying new hardware, we find often that we have just given too much processing power to systems. Our tools let us identify that very quickly. So one of our primary tasks is capacity management. We certainly use this tool extensively for performance-problem diagnostics. And we're looking to leverage the… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Workload characterization is super important because it lets us figure things out. Many people know, for example, that with Microsoft Word, Word.exe is the executable. Everybody knows their executable, but they don't always know what it does. It also launches other things. This tool has the ability and insight to track those things, and to know: "Oh, you wanted this executable, but this one started this, so you must want this, too." And it tells you what it had to add, what it was using or was spawning."
  • "We ingest a ton of business data. We are an insurance company and we have business data, like how many quotes are done an hour, and how many policies are sold per hour. The correlation engine in the new TrueSight Capacity Optimization components are wonderful. We can do correlation analysis over months of data, and then we run models to tell our business: 'If you do 1,000 more quotes an hour, we're going to have to upgrade, and we're going to need this much more hardware.'"
  • "Some of the data management is painful. Some of the new features haven't been implemented in quite the way I would like to get to levels of detail. For example, Visualizer parser doesn't take everything it should out of the Visualizer files. We've had to put in a work-around, but the work-around is not as accurate as what's in the file."

What other advice do I have?

Ask questions, ask to meet other customers. Ask for customer references, for whatever products you're looking at. Talk to others who are using the products. If they're your peers, they know what the pains are. I'm not saying there's no pain with this product. There is pain, sure. But in its space, it's a ten. Some of the data management is painful.
