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

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

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.

It is very cost-effective compared to the tools I worked with in the past. The company is gaining a lot with respect to the cost factor. It provides agentless monitoring and in a very cheap way.
