Pros
This is a very reliable and complete solution for troubleshooting and monitoring environments.I like the single pane of glass view. I like being able to go to one place instead of having to hunt around for everything.I like the single pane of glass view because it presents everything in one window, obviously. You can see it all. With a quick glance, you get a pretty good snapshot of what's going on in a particular situation.

Cons
The GUI interface and dashboards could be more attractive to the customer.In terms of additional features, I would like to see better event notification. Right now, we put in an email address to receive an alert and it receives every event and every alert that comes out. We need something a little more granular.Usability is the area with the biggest room for improvement. We've found that with NETSCOUT, while it's a fantastic product, the usability is a major factor because there are just way too many clicks. It's obvious, from our experience, that the people who are developing the product aren't using it.

More NETSCOUT nGeniusPULSE Cons »

There is room for improvement with the administrative part. They introduced Control Center to manage things in Zenoss 5. The services that Zenoss provides remained the same, but the administrative part, since they introduced Docker, etc., has become a little complexThe inclusion of a feature to show a graphical view of the network would be a helpful improvement.There was a problem with Zenoss and storage monitoring.
