Cons
You have limited reporting capabilities and I wouldn't choose ArcSight Logger for this purpose.I would rate the technical support only 5 out of 10. The technical support is not satisfactory.The console in older versions is not user-friendly.In the next release, I want to see more intelligence.The solution should make it possible to integrate network analysis features.I would like to see better scheduling in the next release of this solution.I think the ArcSight team should try to simplify legacy products for the customers, because that product is not easy to use or to work with. It needs more more competency or appeal to use. We hope Micro Focus is trying to resolve this.The speed of Logger indexing and searching for certain bugs for some queries that we provide could be improved. It can handle a huge number of logs but it can be improved.
