What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are tracing, SmartTrace; being able to look at packet traces; looking at SSH handshakes for the key certificates, as well as looking at protocols that are transferring over the wire before it leaves the mainframe.

How has it helped my organization?

It is fast getting work done over to banks. It's important to understand what the communication protocols are and get them fixed. There are a lot of banks that had to be converted from FTP to SFTP, and there were all sorts of things that were... more»

What needs improvement?

What was mentioned at a recent CA conference was NetMaster's getting tied in with the whole new infrastructure with the analytics. That would be great to get that over to z/Linux, to see if there are tools that could do the understanding of... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature would be the ability to deep-dive into the network stack, reasonably quickly, reasonably effectively, and generate useful transaction data for troubleshooting and analysis. For example, if you have a transmission... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Time to resolve is improved. Downtime is the single most expensive thing that a company can encounter, so reduced downtime is the biggest thing.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a web-based interface that mimics the ease of doing data traces, similar to something like a Wireshark which is a Windows-based network monitoring tool. Wireshark is fast. I'm an old Windows guy, it's what I know. I think... more»

What is most valuable?

I have NetMaster Network Management for SNA, NetMaster Network Automation and NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP. The TCP/IP product is the best for us.

How has it helped my organization?

We use the SmartTrace feature a lot. It's very good for troubleshooting.

What needs improvement?

The automation part could use improvement, but I do not do that much with it. Maybe you could have some pre-canned NCL or REXX processes that anybody could use or easily modify that anyone could use. Everything is so menu-driven that you get... more»

What do you think of CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP?

Valuable Features The most valuable features are SNA and IP monitoring. It has also been very easy to define many thresholds, including self-defining baselines. • Room for Improvement I would like to see new release migrations made easier. If not all NetMasters are migrated to V12.1, you need one focal point running with Version V12.0 and one running V12.1. A focal point running V12.1 is not able to support subordinates running V12.0. • Use of Solution I have used it for 5 years. • Stability Issues We have not encountered any stability issues. • Scalability Issues We have not encountered any scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support I would rate technical support as very, very good. • Initial Setup We developed our own setup method for...
