What is most valuable?

One of the valuable features is the packet decoding. Also, the single pane of glass view is really good. Because I open the monitoring, the http monitoring, for example, and then I go to the session and then to the packets, I only use a… more»

What is most valuable?

The generation of KPI-like information that feeds to the nGeniusONE (management) server is the most valuable feature. The vSTREAM itself isn't the only tool you would need, you also need management software.

None.

What other advice do I have?

vSTREAM is used to get information out of a virtual environment. A lot of the time with these types of products, the monitoring layer implementation lags behind in projects. Customers should take monitoring into account in the project planning and budgeting from the start not just at the end of the project. I would rate it an eight out of ten. There is always room for improvement.
