We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It monitors and continuously tests everything that is of importance to you and your users. It could be everything from monitoring disk space to CPU usage to memory. It could include determining if the response time in your e-commerce platform is quick enough, or whether you have too many bounces from some of the pages on your website. You want to monitor anything that could cost you money or time or resources. You can do that with this system. It's very flexible."
"The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."
"The most important for us is how fast this solution is, as well as the granularity that you can get to, such as per-minute statistics."
"We were having some issues with a certain site, and it was only Statseeker that showed us what the problem was."
"The graphics and trends are the most valuable for us."
"Being able to look back historically at the uptime and downtime is invaluable."
"This solution allowed us to track down trouble users."
"In terms of network visibility, Statseeker can be very granular. We can tell it exactly where we want it to go and where we want it to check, or it can do an SNMP walk and find out where everything is. It's very detailed."
"Statseeker helps to quickly see if you have a spike or something going on. In the future, we need to get NetFlow in the tool so we can see what the IP is."
"It also allows us to predict the capacity on WAN circuits, as well as other circuits, to help us plan for upgrading."
"IT environments today are in constant flux. This is driven by the newer cloud technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker, etc. The whole Nagios-based monitoring system that OP5 is created on top of, is based on a host-service model. There is a need for a strategy on what to do with more dynamic environments. There is some cool stuff going on in that direction."
"The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved."
"I'd say the interface could improve a little bit. I find with new users, I tend to have to spend a bit of time walking them through how to use the interface. It could be a little more user friendly."
"Maybe they could provide a little bit more flexibility on creating custom dashboards."
"I would like to have soft alarming. If an inner-base all of a sudden triggers a threshold, we have to rely on a lot of other tools and then we go into Statseeker to verify it. If Statseeker would confirm it preemptively and trigger it into our network panel, that would be nice."
"We haven't seen an ROI."
"I would like the ability to update the dashboard. I would also like the ability to access via an API. Then I could produce a dashboard that my C level can understand. This is just so they can go and refresh whenever they want to and see what things look like."
"With Statseeker I'd like to see some flow, i.e. what's tuning-up the network. The trend I like is managing the traffic load by going to the cloud."
"The user interface needs to be made more intuitive."
"This solution would be improved with better automatic discovery for ping-only devices."
"OP5 has a very low price as a solution, compared to many other solutions out there."
"We paid $5,000 to $10,000 a year in maintenance."
"We have permanent licenses so there's really no cost, other than ongoing maintenance. When I think about it, that's running us about $20,000 a year."
"It would definitely be a yearly licensing cost, but I don't know what it is."
"It's probably $5K a year for the license."
"Compared to other solutions such as Zabbix and AKiPS, this solution is very well priced."
"We pay a yearly maintenance fee of approximately $40,000 USD."
"The yearly cost varies as per the number of devices being monitored. The cost for 25,000 devices is about $4500."
"When it came to selecting this solution, it came down to cost."
