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

Pros
"I really love the Data Explorer. I use it all the time to go in and craft exactly what I need to see. I'm able to then take that story and explain it to the executives. I've done that a couple of times and it is helpful.""In terms of the solution’s real-time visibility across our network infrastructure, I have not been able to find any other monitoring or netflow visualization tool that gives me the kind of information I get from Kentik. If I need to take a deep-dive into something that I see, it's really easy for me to do that. Whereas with most other things, I have to use five or six other tools to get that kind of data, with Kentik, I have it all in one place.""Having the API access allows us to do a great deal of automation around a lot of our reporting and management tools.""We're also using Kentik to ingest metrics. It's a useful feature, and its response time, whenever we're pulling back the data, is higher than our on-prem solution.""I am able to do a lot of work on the visualization end to create different visualizations and different ways to get information out of it.""The drill-down into detailed views of network activity helps to quickly pinpoint locations and causes. All the information is there.""The most valuable feature is being able to pull traffic patterns; to and from destinations. We're able to understand where our traffic is going, our top talkers from an AS set, as well as where our traffic's coming from.""The most valuable features have been anything around traffic engineering: being able to determine the source or destination of a surge of traffic, whether it's DDoS-related, or a customer just happened to have a sudden uptick in traffic. Being able to tell where that's coming from or where it's going to enables us to do things based on that."

"Flexibility in the two view dashboard helps viewers and admins get the information they need about the fetwork in a flash.""The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to reach most of our network devices and get the most from them.""The most valuable feature is the network-related reporting.""The most valuable feature is the monitoring alerts. The administrators are immediately notified and can do the required action immediately. This is the feature we value and use the most.""It helps us a lot for monitoring our servers in one console, instead of going to individual servers.""The solution offers very good integration capabilities.""The application monitoring is the solution's most valuable feature.""The solution is easy to deploy. It's also easy to manage and monitor the environment. Instead of being reactive, it's proactive."

"The most valuable feature is the monitoring of processes.""This is a very good solution and it is simple to use, for any company.""The most valuable feature is the dashboard, where I can have a single screen that provides a summary for hundreds of servers.""The most valuable feature is its support for different types of devices, where it can use all of the equipment that you need.""An excellent solution that is easy and intuitive to implement.""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."

Cons
"I've checked out the V4 version of the interface and it's still a little bit clunky for me to use. I still go back to the old interface. That's definitely one that they still need to work on. It doesn't seem like everything that you get in the V3, the older interface, is there. For instance, I was trying to add a user or do the administrative tasks in V4, and I couldn't figure out where I was supposed to do that.""There is room for improvement around the usability of the API. It's a hugely complex task to call it and you need a lot of backing to be able to do it. I should say, as someone who's not in networking, maybe it's easier for people who are in networking, but for me that one part is not very user-friendly.""I would like to see them explore the area of cost analysis.""The only downside to Kentik, something that I don't like, is that it's great that it shows you where these anomalies lie, but it's not actionable. Kentik is valuable, don't get me wrong, but if it had an actionable piece to it...""They're moving more in a direction where they are saying, "Hey, here's information that you may be interested in or may a need," before the question has to explicitly be asked. Continuing to move in that direction would be a good thing.""We asked for a way, regarding the potential networks that exist, to hook Kentik up with external tools like peering DBs to correlate things together and see what we can do... This is all in the [next] beta now.""I believe they're already working on this, but I would love for them to create better integrations from network flow data to application performance — tracing — so that we could overlay that data more readily. With more companies going hybrid, flow logs and flow data, whether it be VPC or on-prem, matched with application performance and trace data, is pretty important."

More Kentik Cons »

"The two views into the system are very good but could be extended to further customization to fit the need of end users in a variety of roles.""The initial setup is a bit complicated. It needs a technician who is very aware of the flow and how to officially set up the flow chart, etc.""The dashboard has some limitations and should be more user-friendly.""The storage level monitoring needs improvement. It needs storage level monitoring on the server itself. That feature is lacking right now.""The licensing for this solution is not straightforward and should be improved.""The pricing of the solution is high. They should work to adjust the pricing model to see if they can help reduce costs.""The licensing model is confusing.""The solution is a bit difficult to configure. There are quite a number of configurations and plugins that you must handle early in the process."

More ManageEngine OpManager Cons »

"The interface could be more user-friendly.""I would like to see support for notification via SMS.""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 more customization in the network map because it is a bit tricky to use it.""They need more documentation for the plugins.""There's room for improvement in the visibility, and in the ability to extract information. Stuff like this should be more simple."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have an annual contract with Kentik that we renew each year for a set number of licenses. We also have some burstable licenses which we can spin up and spin down, and those are paid as they are used."

More Kentik Pricing and Cost Advice »

"As far as cost, it was around six hundred thousand rands ($40,500) for the year, for the renewals. That's the total cost for a four thousand node system including support and maintenance.""The licensing costs depend on the number of devices and accounts that are being monitored by the solution.""The initial cost is low and the add-ons are reasonable."

More ManageEngine OpManager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We are using the free version of this solution.""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.""The licensing fees for this solution are approximately $3,000 USD per year.""The pricing is high with separate licensing for the product and support."
