Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Google's technical support is very good.""The most valuable feature is the multi-cloud integration, where there is support for both GCP and AWS.""Provides visibility into the performance uptime.""The features that I have found most valuable are its graphs - if I need any statistics, in Kubernetes or Kong level or VPN level, I can quickly get the reports."

"The technical support is good at resolving issues.""The reporting feature is good for us.""The most valuable feature is application performance monitoring.""The most useful feature of this solution is tracking. When the application's traffic has been monitored it is taken from that particular application and analyzed. It is then given a live session of that particular user. For example, if you are using your bank application to do some kind of transaction, everything that you do can be tracked by that application."

Cons
"It is difficult to estimate in advance how much something is going to cost.""If I want to track any round-trip or breakdowns of my response times, I'm not able to get it. My request goes through various levels of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and comes back to my client machine. Suppose that my request has taken 10 seconds overall, so if I want to break it down, to see where the delay is happening within my architecture, I am not able to find that out using Stackdriver.""Lacking sufficient operations documentation.""While we are satisfied with the overall performance, in certain cases we must add additional metrics and additional tools like Grafana and Dynatrace."

"We would like to see support for non-Windows environments.""When we want to monitor our encrypted traffic, this product doesn't work because our cipher is not supported.""This technology is considered to be older.""Everybody is moving away from traffic and installing agents on the application to do the job, but Micro Focus is using traditional ways to collect the traffic. They should change their architecture completely."
