What is most valuable?

Presently we are making maximum use of this product for IBM Websphere monitoring with agents monitoring the MQ's. We are also using the java and .net agents for monitoring the respective applications. Introscope Reports and Dashboards provide... more»

How has it helped my organization?

In our organization, the critical applications are being monitored with thresholds set for any malfunctioning through APM. Also, we have configured Dashboards which display any deviation of the application from normal. Further, the Tool is... more»

What needs improvement?

Based on my experience with the product, I found two areas which can be improved on in future. Firstly, the APM upgrade procedure is a bit complicated with compatibility issues which can emerge like between agents and EM/Collectors. Secondly,... more»

Assistant Vice President at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

ITRS can define rules to alert when certain parameters that you monitor breach a threshold. Rules can be configured to fire recovery actions automatically to clear the alert. However, if the alert persists for an extended period, then it has... more»

How has it helped my organization?

ITRS helps us to identify a lot of production issues proactively. E.g., ITRS alerts for a critical process memory that grows beyond the configured threshold limits. The limits are set to alert before the process crashes. This allows support... more»

What needs improvement?

ITRS has setup XML that holds the entire monitoring configuration. Only the last 10 versions of the setup XML is saved locally on the gateway server. These 10 versions get overwritten quite easily when you are working with a big configuration... more»

Database Administrator at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

Having standard monitoring features and a central repository saves us a lot of time and reduces risk of incidents. It replaces a lot of manual tasks and makes it easier for us to be more pro-active and to prioritise issues across multiple... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Initially, it meant we no longer needed to spend time manually checking our existing databases/servers which freed us up for other tasks. It also captures information that we wouldn't otherwise have.

What needs improvement?

In an older version of Foglight, we were not able to get any of our custom agents to work properly so that feature was not as much use as we had initially hoped and haven't tried using since. Being able to incorporate other bespoke monitoring... more»

What do you think of Avada Software Infrared360?

Improvements to My Organization The ability for development teams to have access to their MQ queues has freed us up as administrators to do things other than chase down an application’s message for research purposes. • Valuable Features - Monitoring that ties into our incident management system - Visibility of the MQ environment to non-MQ personnel • Room for Improvement The UI can be cumbersome - but we are still using the Viper interface and we have not had the time to check out the Alloy interface which is supposed to be much improved. • Stability Issues Not really, other than minor memory leaks. But a monthly cycling of the server is usually all that is required (which we have to do for patching anyways). • Scalability Issues We have not really pushed the...
