Quotes From Members Comparing CA Spectrum vs. LogicMonitor

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The Spectrum tool improved our network assurance levels for our business units.All networks (or network equipment) are monitored through CA Spectrum.It is easy to understand and determine when and/or where the network is failing.The monitoring just comes to us: "Oh, there's something wrong with that machine." It tells us. There are some 50,000 machines or so, all doing different things. And if they go down we hear about it.It helps our NetOps group actually handle alarms in a way that lets them see the bigger picture of those alarms, and how they might affect our services. It helps us communicate information about the network state better to services that might be impacted by a specific network condition.As the kind of enterprise that straddles the line between telco size and enterprise size, it scales for us, because we're not all the way at telco yet.​It covers a lot of different types of hardware. It can do a lot and saves us time.​It is very stable. We have not had any major issues in over 10 years.

The dashboards are great.We can give our customers a good overview of their environment and the services they use.They already have templates of what elements to monitor in a device.It is easy to add a device.In terms of support, we are more proactive compared to having no monitoring at all. We are also able to identify quickly what sort of issues have happened or are about to happen, and act on them accordingly.Integration with a wide variety of infrastructure systems is the most valuable feature; most critical to us was VMware integration and Citrix NetScaler integration.Through the use of LogicMonitor's expansive monitoring library and host detection technologies, we are able to monitor hosts without the complexities traditional NMS systems have.The escalation change and API integration are also huge for us, making alerting seamless.

Cons
The CA Technologies sales team destroyed their relationship with our business units.It needs better integration with other CA products.OS monitoring needs to be better developed, as well as their services, e.g., cluster monitoring, URLs, etc.Make it easier to certify devices.If they could interact with the MIBs of vendors better, and have a lot more pre-loaded ones, that would be amazing for us right now.The Spectrum OneClick is a Java-based client, and that's aging. Really, before any new feature integration, I'd love to see a comprehensive rebuild of the UI.The upgrade process could be smoother. More of the steps around upgrading could be automated.A better integration with the UIM, as far as being able to do root cause analysis and that type of analytics.

It would be nice to have better looking charts.The current user reporting module is terrible. There is a lot of room for improvement.I much prefer the older UI for managing devices and dashboards. They gave assurances that they would not retire the old UI before making it feature parity with the new UI, but they did not follow through with that.The new/beta web portal and its REST API are a work-in-progress. This transformation for LogicMonitor is an exciting refresh, and is enabling customers like Impulse to provide feedback along the way.I'd like to see the NetFlow reporting get better and the new UI needs some work.

The cost of some of these products are a little cost prohibitive, which is unfortunate. We have to find lower cost solutions for some of the things that we have to pull in. For the most part, CA has capabilities in pretty much everything that you would need. You just have to figure out where are you going to spend the most money for what you have to actually get done. You can do all these things but, which ones do you have to do? And that's hard to choose sometimes because you want to do them all.It’s a great tool, but an expensive one. Learn how to use it properly.It is very pricey. With the current trend of enterprises moving towards cheaper and more modern looking solutions like ManageEngine, SevOne, ServicePilot, and Paesller.

Talk to them about the price. It is probably cheaper than you think.The price is a bit stiff.The per-device licensing is painful for virtual machines.
