Has modules to troubleshoot web applications, database transactions, and unified communications, all in one

What is our primary use case?

Riverbed has a few modular solutions. Some are independent but they are all part of a whole and they function as one solution. You can implement a few of these modules depending on what the customer is interested in. For example, APM and NPM, and sometimes both combined. This gives you a deeper and more complex picture than some competitors' solutions.

Pros and Cons

  • "I have found the AppResponse, which is a packet capture solution, very good. It gives you the ability to drill down back in time. You've got all the packets there. You can troubleshoot it later, not immediately. It's very interesting."
  • "The initial setup is straightforward, but you have to know a little about the product. It's not for everybody to just plug and play. If you know how the solution is implemented then it is straightforward."

What other advice do I have?

We require a staff of a small team to maintain the solution. They can quickly find and troubleshoot problems in the database, transactions, unified communication, etc. It's a very good tool. It is very fast and very informative. It gives you an overview where the problem is on the backend server or on the network side. Then you can focus more deeply on that. On a scale of one to ten I would give it an eight.
