Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"One thing we're utilizing in Geneos is the Gateway-SQL. That's really helpful for us. Using Gateway-SQL, we are able to merge two different views into one. Suppose we have to check something in the log and that we have to check something in the database and do a comparison before publishing a result. We can achieve that using Gateway-SQL.""The filtering in the Active Console is exceptional. Depending on the user base, some people don't want to see server-level errors, so we have filters set up in the Managed Entities view, which allow us to filter out things that certain groups don't want to see, while allowing them to see other things. It's a great real-time monitoring solution. And you can draw graphs immediately, right from the Active Console, whether they're current graphs or historical graphs.""The Netprobe is so lightweight compared to the agents that most monitoring tools use. It's really superior to the competition. The agent that is used by almost every competitive tool takes a lot more system resources. It's slower and it requires a greater effort and more compromises in terms of security to install on the monitored servers. With Geneos, because it lives outside the code, it is far easier and far less taxing on the monitored systems.""It enables us to monitor application processes, to do log-monitoring on a 24/7 basis, to do server-level monitoring - all the hardware parameters - as well as monitor connectivity across applications to the interfaces.""One of the most valuable features is that it can be configured by non-developers. It doesn't require development expertise to configure it."

"The features I've found the most useful are the plug-ins, the fact that you can connect almost everything to it. That's very useful.""An excellent solution that is easy and intuitive to implement.""The most valuable feature is its support for different types of devices, where it can use all of the equipment that you need.""The most valuable feature is the dashboard, where I can have a single screen that provides a summary for hundreds of servers.""This is a very good solution and it is simple to use, for any company.""The most valuable feature is the monitoring of processes."

Cons
"I would really like to see something from the Geneos side to set up automated reporting from ITRS. We have to send reporting to management every day. To do that we have to check the dashboard and then we have to report whether everything is fine or not. In the future, I want something, some reporting kind of feature in ITRS, where it can collect all the data and mention what is green, what is amber, what is red in a report.""They have the Webslinger solution where you can see when something is alerting. It's a little bit cumbersome.""One thing that could be improved in terms of rapid scaling would be more ability to clone aspects of an implementation. It seems like there are opportunities in this area, where we have repetitive tasks to do when it comes to implementing things on new servers or on new gateways. It would be great if there was an easy way to clone something that had already been done.""Sometimes, if there is a lot of data coming onto the servers, we have observed a little bit of slowness on the gateway servers which are doing the ITRS dashboard monitoring.""The ITA, the post-incident analytics, could be improved."

More ITRS Geneos Cons »

"There's room for improvement in the visibility, and in the ability to extract information. Stuff like this should be more simple.""They need more documentation for the plugins.""I would like to see more customization in the network map because it is a bit tricky to use it.""I would like a much easier GUI so that I can delete events and logs, which will free up a lot of space.""I would like to see support for notification via SMS.""The interface could be more user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing is the touchy subject, even here. Upper management always wants us to find a cheaper solution. But we have so much integrated with ITRS... It's expensive, but it does its job very well. And you set it and go.""The licensing cost may seem expensive upfront. However, the service is outstanding, the tool does things that no other tools can do, and the customizability more than makes up for the cost of licensing."

More ITRS Geneos Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is high with separate licensing for the product and support.""The licensing fees for this solution are approximately $3,000 USD per year.""This solution is very expensive, at approximately $5,000 USD when I purchased it, which is why I haven't upgraded my version in several years.""We are using the free version of this solution."
