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."

"With good domain knowledge, one can build almost anything. If you throw in Alert Manager or an integration with ServiceNow. Then, you have your own SIEM""Our clients are easily able to modify and evolve their implementations.""The initial setup is really straightforward. It's one of the easiest installations.""It helps us uncover bottlenecks in the network.""it can explain to management about what kind of traffic is visiting the network. It can also explain other traffic coming in and out, along with protecting against malware.""The most valuable feature of Splunk is the log monitoring.""It can log more logs than other solutions. It's a good way to troubleshoot problems.""We can present to our management in real time the security of the batch management for the PCs, security regarding the network equipment. We're currently working in the Azure Cloud project, so we can send any logs from the cloud to Splunk. We can monitor them and we can present to the managers and customers. It's a very good solution for reporting. We use Splunk for reporting and monitoring of any solution in the company."

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."

"It needs a better way to export dynamic views without requiring a ton of code and user/pw.""It needs integration with a configuration management solution.""It needs integration with a configuration management solution.""They should make data onboarding easier.""The product was difficult to back up the first time.""Splunk needs local technical support.""If possible, we would like to have not only a log monitoring system but a network monitoring feature in this solution as well.""Cybersecurity and infrastructure monitoring have room for improvement."

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."

"Splunk is really expensive.""Splunk should be able to integrate with other product using the free version.""The pricing and licensing of the product are quite high.""Splunk's cost is very high. They need to review the pricing. They have to go back and totally readdress the market.""It's a little bit expensive for a small to medium enterprise.""I think the price could be improved.""I am not personally involved with the pricing of the solution.""Some of the insights that we have obtained as a part of using Splunk have greatly helped us in increasing our revenue in terms of selling our products."
