Cons
"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

"This is a horrible solution and I think everything needs to be improved."

More LiveAction LiveNX Cons »

"It would be nice if SolarWinds could have a polling engine on the site that would collect the reporting and then manage everything itself.""It is not that stable. As a Windows software, I have seen issues with SolarWinds. The performance is slow.""The aesthetic widgets should be dynamic widgets, so the customization can be even more customizable.""Application Performance Monitoring should be included in this solution.""I would like to see integration with antivirus or other security endpoint solutions.""This solution would benefit from expanding on the capabilities within the API.""We are looking to change away from this solution because of the documentation and the solution doesn't have enough integration in our country. The documentation is too weak.""Scalability is a bit tricky because it requires more gateways in order to get the performance you may need. It also requires a lot of licensing."
