"End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good.""The service maps that it creates, the health maps that it creates, the insights that it provides, etc., are all quite useful.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring.""The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us.""It does everything we wanted it to do.""The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done.""Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly.""The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."

More Akamai mPulse Cons »

"The deployment process could be improved.""The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be.""How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited.""There has been some problem with the agent, and it is just not working well. It is not able to record information with the application server. They have been able to fix the issue, but it took quite a long time. This is the main issue in the APM products and also in New Relic. The mobile application monitoring has been pretty difficult to set up and also quite expensive. It should be a little bit easier and cheaper. Because it is pretty difficult and expensive, many customers don't take it.""It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards.""It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."
