We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
We haven't really experienced any glitches or bugs.
Great monitoring of network devices.
The ability to create custom dashboards is one of the best features and that's typically why most people deploy Splunk. Users can create dashboards for just about anything.
The initial setup was straightforward. We didn't find it to be too complex.
The product retains a lot of log data for subsequent analysis.
The most valuable feature in this solution is the log searching.
The feature I find most valuable, is the data integration.
The solution's most valuable aspect is its ability to get information about all of the security measurements in my environment.
The documentation is very good.
The installation and configuration process are easy.
The most valuable features are network bandwidth monitoring and monitoring device health.
I use it on premises to monitor my network database. We monitor the link up/down and use the SNMP traps as well.
This is a good, stable network monitoring solution for devices.
The interface in the last few years it has been a lot greater, they are much more user-friendly. I like the interface.
We no longer have to manually search for problems because we are alerted when something in the network goes down.
The most valuable feature is the monitoring of resources.
They do not have all the features that I expect right now.
Splunk would be better if some tools were integrated to be able to take action on security or network concerns.
The cost needs to be re-examined. It's extremely expensive to run. It's also expensive to expand. That's the number one complaint all of my customers have when it comes to Splunk. It's way too expensive compared to other solutions.
It would be useful if they provided some help pages. If you don't know too much about the tool, there should be more documentation readily available. It would be useful if they had a help button embedded in the solution so you could ask questions and get answers.
It does not have a user-friendly interface and it is difficult to use.
This solution is difficult to configure and the instructions are complex.
I would like to see an improvement and some innovation in the customer interface.
The solution should have more sensors regarding fiber intelligence for security measures.
The licensing model could be improved. Right now, the levels are too far apart. This causes the solution to be more expensive than it needs to be.
Users want SMS available via Whatsapp Gold. They don't want to go through third party SMS servers. The solution should work to make this possible.
Integrations with other devices. I want to have a product that has full integration with my active directory so I can track user activity. I want to track my complete user activity, so I'm looking for a product to implement in the near future, which will have full integration with my network and active directory users. It became very difficult to track user activity.
I think there are a few bugs now. Although they give some resolution for this, we cannot share the network remotely because of our company policy.
Adding on services increases the cost and on the version we have there is no option for ATM monitoring.
One of the biggest things that made us start to look at another product is we're not able to have an end to end monitoring from a user perspective throughout the system and back to the user. All the monitoring is from inside out, we need something that also can give us from outside in.
The pricing for this solution has gone up quite recently, which has led some of our customers to buy an alternative product.
I would like to see better integration with switches so that you can see what is connected to each port, what the traffic is, and have a network map automatically generated.
Pricing and Cost Advice
This is an expensive solution.
The product is a bit expensive considering the competition but the company may negotiate the price.
There are some subscription charges that are quite heavy. I need to pay for support every year and these charges can be quite expensive. Aside from the initial cost for the tool, you need to pay additionally for support.
The pricing can be on the expensive side when considering competing products.
The choice of version depends on the number of points, or devices, that you want to monitor, and this makes the product expensive.
I'm not sure, but it's expensive. We don't pay any additional fees.
Pricing is reasonable compared to other products.
