Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature of New Relic APM is the dashboard, New Relic Insights. I configured my own dashboard to monitor certain parameters.""End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good.""The service maps that it creates, the health maps that it creates, the insights that it provides, etc., are all quite useful.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring.""The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."

"It's extremely scalable. It's a very robust solution and certainly has the capability of handling far bigger data requirements than a lot of the other tools. Generally what ends up happening with me is that my clients tend, for the most part, to be mid-tier organizations where the cost of that solutions would be accompanying requirements for people just becomes way too prohibitive. Especially considering the model that they use for costing, which is based on the volume of data. Of course, they're going to put everything including the Coke machine as the ability to collect data off of it, because of course the more they can put through the tool the more money they make.""It's very flexible. If you look from the cloud implementation it is there. Reports are made quickly. Unlike other tools, it caters to all kinds of technical information on the front very easily. There's no need to put in any technical information. You can pull on the reports very easily, take action, and notify stakeholders.""The search function for spam is like a google search. You just enter and it will quickly show you the results.""The initial setup is simple, not very complex. Initial deployment takes around 10 to 15 minutes to set up the entire base for Splunk including all three tiers.""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.""It can log more logs than other solutions. It's a good way to troubleshoot problems.""The most valuable feature of Splunk is the log monitoring.""It helps us uncover bottlenecks in the network."

Cons
"I would like to see the company implement the AI auto-baseline feature which Dynatrace has.""The deployment process could be improved.""The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be."

"The tool itself is very difficult to configure. It's great for its number of inputs, for the different types of systems devices, and things that it could collect information from. To actually make good use of it, you need a fairly dedicated team of people that have some reasonably good programming or modeling skills to be able to do the things that you need to do with it. Whereas a lot of the other tools are better packaged for that, and so require a lot less training and a lot less dedication.""It does not give us permission to implement on-premise so we implement them on the cloud.""Spam has different plugins but by default, the logs are not organized, it shows that there are roll-ups that are out of the box. I saw many plugins that can help improve or extend Splunk's functionality but I haven't tried any of them.""Splunk does not build apps. They only go back and validate the apps that somebody has already built. They should have remote consulting support. They have a wonderful solution. They have 24/7 security. Nobody needs to depend on any third party and will therefore just buy Splunk on the cloud.""The security can be improved.""Cybersecurity and infrastructure monitoring have room for improvement.""If possible, we would like to have not only a log monitoring system but a network monitoring feature in this solution as well.""The product was difficult to back up the first time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing is better with New Relic APM than Dynatrace.""The price depends on how many agents you want.""This is an expensive tool."

"It's a little bit expensive for a small to medium enterprise.""Splunk's cost is very high. They need to review the pricing. They have to go back and totally readdress the market.""Splunk should be able to integrate with other product using the free version.""The pricing and licensing of the product are quite high.""Splunk is really expensive.""I think that most of the monitoring solutions are expensive.""I think that most of the log analytics solutions are expensive and I'm not sure if it's worth it.""Our customers often complain that the price of Splunk is too high."
