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 is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is drill-down monitoring, which shows us from one interface the transaction chain from the front end to back end. Another interesting thing is that this product can work with many databases including freeware... more»

How has it helped my organization?

This product has helped our customers discover Java performance issues in their WebLogic applications.

What needs improvement?

I want to see a new interface that contains HTML5 features. The current version of Foglight (on-premise edition) is so fusty in comparison with leaders of Gartner APM Quadrant - i.e. Appdynamics, NewRelic, Dynatrace. If you try to compare... more»

What do you think of Quest Foglight for APM?

Improvements to My Organization We are able to view infrastructure through a single pane of glass and are able to build services and SLA. • Valuable Features Infrastructure Monitoring and End User Monitoring are the product’s most valuable features to me. • Room for Improvement Application Monitoring. We are running a Webmethods stack (Software AG) and Foglight is unable to instrument. We are in a POC with Dynatrace and it was able to instrument with little effort. • Customer Service and Technical Support To be honest, we have stopped using customer support and technical support because of the slow pace in which our SR's are resolved. We often fix the issues before Dell support is able to. • Initial Setup I did not form part of the initial setup but have...

What is most valuable?

It provides a history of the activities on our SQL servers.

How has it helped my organization?

I’m a DBA for a big e-commerce site. Foglight quickly helped us reduce the amount of money lost. Its module history query increased DBA efficiency. 90% of the time, we couldn’t catch problems in real time. This module helped us with that. One... more»

What needs improvement?

I would perhaps like to see more SSMS connections.
