CA Spectrum Primary Use Case

Network Tools Engineer at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
Our primary use case is to monitor all of our network infrastructure. Spectrum can monitor any type of infrastructure, but for us it's our network infrastructure. We also use it for configuration management. We have alarm/event management, network discovery, inventory, things of that nature. View full review »

We use it to monitor the fault of our network to make sure that the infrastructure that delivers our services to our end users is up and all the redundancy is up. It performs really well in these tasks. It is one of its core competencies. View full review »
Senior Enterprise Monitoring Engineer at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
We use Spectrum to monitor our infrastructure, servers, network, routers, switches, to make sure that all of our services and infrastructure components are all up and operational all the time. And if they're not, we're responsible for alerting the people who are responsible for the different components and parts. It's a pretty important part of our operational M.O. as we move forward, making sure stuff is up and running. The performance has been fantastic. View full review »

Jason Hohmann
Communication Systems Analyst at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
Monitoring. We set it up so that other people can watch everything and let us know if something goes down, or processing needs to be restarted. Then, sometimes, it just does that on its own. Air conditioner overheating. Stuff like that. For the most part it has been good. There were snags in the beginning, learning curves, and the like, but it's relatively easy. View full review »

Parag Pujari
Director IT at CNO Financial Group, Inc.
We use it for monitoring our applications. Mainly, it open systems to make sure that the databases are up and running, and also the service is up and running. It has become a notification before the business lets us know the system is down. We get to know the system is down first, so that is its main purpose. It has been performing well. We have had some kinks here and there, but overall it has been good. View full review »
Senior Systems Engineer at GEICO
We use it as a fault-management tool for our networking devices. It's performed very well. We're still somewhat in the infancy. We've got a new deployment of Spectrum so we aren't 100% fully deployed with it. We have it integrated with CA Performance Center, which is what our initial experience is with, and we're just now bringing CA Spectrum into the fold. View full review »

IT Operations Manager at Delta Air Lines, Inc.
The primary use case is eyes on glass, operations, responding to tickets, alerts, and incidents tickets. Performance wise it is good. We have a lot of different monitoring tools in the background, so orchestration has been a little bit of a challenge, but I think that is everybody right now. Overall it is a good tool.
