Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We're able to diagnose issues prior to their actually becoming issues. Without the alerting, we wouldn't have a clue as to what was going to happen. With the alerting, it gives us a heads-up that a specific threshold has been met, and we need to take specific action.""Memory and CPU utilization features are good."

"This solution allows us to standardize all of the reports for monitoring the network, so it helps a lot for auditing purposes.""This solution satisfies all of the requirements that we need for our Windows-based systems, so if you are using the Windows platform then this is an easy solution.""It takes a lot of the headache out of managing your data centers and software in other places.""The most valuable features for us are the monitoring, the health explorer, and the console.""This solution helps our application teams by allowing them to drill further into issues and perform a root cause analysis.""This solution saves us a lot of work because it reduces the effort that is required in order to start monitoring.""This is a product that does more generally than any of the competing solutions.""The solution is scalable. If you want to monitor more you have to buy more licenses, but you can add on. We don't plan to increase usage."

Cons
"I'm going to do an upgrade which may resolve my issues, but one area for improvement is its ability to handle the amount of data that we collect with it. We're likely one of the largest installations, with over 300 servers being collected with this product, and sometimes there are gaps. That would really be my only concern, in terms of how the data is collected and stored, for consistency.""They can improve checking the status of the CPU, memory, and IO utilization from each task."

"I would like to see more standard libraries for the market solutions, out of the box, that you don't need to do a lot of work on.""I would like to see better support for monitoring Unix-based systems.""On-prem network monitoring is something that could be improved drastically.""The console feature is very poor, and it would be very good for us if this were improved.""The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved.""All of the areas of reporting are very bad and need to be improved.""It lacks certain details that other products do better, like granular access and better application monitoring.""Of course, price is always an issue with Microsoft and could be improved."
