Cons
Better reporting is always something needed. That could be an answer to just about anything. But you always want better reporting, better dashboards, things that are just more dynamic and more accessible.Right now, in relation to monitoring services, there are too many services and too many metrics per service.The drill-down aspect on the dashboard of the solution needs improvement.
