Pros
One feature I like about CA Performance Management is the certification of the devices.The capability where not only the traditional SNMP information is captured but also the netflow data; who is consuming the data on the WAN, and voice-related information, is helpful. The voice quality makes it very easy for first- and second-line operators to see where the issue is, and who is impacted.The ability to very quickly and graphically navigate around, being able to zoom in to a timeframe, apply it to all the other panels... are all very intuitive.I can get it to run a report showing, for instance, what root drives are in the critical range in terms of being full, like 90 percent full, and disseminate that information to the other areas of the organization.The feature that is inherent to its core, of being able to graphically represent a trend and status, is nice.

Offers a single pane of glass to view inventory, code version management, and inner operations.The most valuable feature is the auto-discovery, which is nice because you don't have to do anything to add a new component.We were able to standardize the internal processes across all internal departments, resulting in almost an elimination of non-standard process flows through our organization.I have found the cross analysis feature to be the most valuable.

Cons
This solution is not very scalable.It could be a little easier to integrate new metrics.This may be available by now but for server space, when it comes to the disk file system, I'd like to see that graphically represented, or the trend, rather than what I'm seeing now.

More DX Performance Management Cons »

The company is trying desperately to sustain the platform by bolting on changes to it to enhance it. It is not a long-term solution.The interface is not nice and needs to be improved.We want to make our own choice for the AIOps solution and do not want to be forced to use the Broadcom OI solution by default.For us, the implementation was quite complex but it's because of the large number of different environments we're dealing with.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I like the licensing model because it's device-based.

The product, support, and maintenance are all expensive, which is another reason that we are switching to another solution.In general, the license cost will be about 30% of the total TCO for this tool (hardware/support team, OS costs, and OS management).
