Enables us to consistently wow our customers and set high SLAs because it reliably tells us if there is a problem anywhere

What is our primary use case?

We use LogicMonitor to monitor our customer environments. Some customers opt to look after their own environments, but some customers have us monitor them for them. We use it to monitor the availability of servers and of network hardware. We have some storage array networks that are being monitored by it as well. We really use it as a guide to help. We monitor all of the key components in the different environments that we have running under LogicMonitor, and we use LogicMonitor as an early-warning system. If a problem develops in a customer environment, and we're monitoring it with… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "It's the depth of data that it gathers that I find really useful because there's nothing worse, when you're trying to find information about something or dig deeper into something, than hitting the bottom of the information really quickly and not having enough information to work with. With LogicMonitor, there is a load of information to dig through. It's a really good solution for that."
  • "One of the areas that I sometimes find confusing is the way that the data is presented. For example, a couple of weeks back I was looking at bandwidth utilization. That's quite a difficult thing to present, but they should try to dumb down how the data is presented and simplify what they're presenting."

What other advice do I have?

It's the depth of data that it gathers that I find really useful because there's nothing worse, when you're trying to find information about something or dig deeper into something, than hitting the bottom of the information really quickly and not having enough information to work with. With LogicMonitor, there is a load of information to dig through. It's a really good solution for that. I'm not aware of any false positives that we get through LogicMonitor. That could be because we've tuned it over time so that we've tuned out any of those false positives. But generally speaking, if…

Overall great tool, attractive features, uncomplicated install but performance needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

The solution is for network monitoring.

Pros and Cons

  • "The bandwidth monitoring is a very attractive feature, it can tell you the bandwidth utilization while it is attempting to connect to the host for feedback."
  • "The solution has to evolve as an end-to-end monitoring solution. It has to do better at understanding the application at the deepest level."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. However, if they are a beginner, there are other products out there that might be more appropriate, like SolarWinds. I rate PRTG Network Monitor a seven out of ten.

Good health checks help to identify infrastructure performance, good drill-down features, and easy to set up

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for Network Monitoring.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ability to put health checks in place not only for the infrastructure but for some of the services that are on top of the infrastructure."
  • "Integration with some other tools, and integration with some Network Packet Broker, need some improvement."

What other advice do I have?

We are still looking at other solutions to increase the capacity of the devices that are being monitored with DX Spectrum. We have a small set of devices being monitored and we are running a project to try to duplicate the monitoring on those devices. DX Spectrum has been great for us. It's the strongest available, the main problem is the pricing, but it's in accordance with the features. I can recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it. I would rate DX Spectrum an eight out of ten.
