What is most valuable?

Being able to look back historically at the uptime and downtime is invaluable. I love the solution's granularity. It's great. I believe that Statseeker's support for both traditional and SDN reduces costs. I think it might reduce costs by 75%.

How has it helped my organization?

I believe Statseeker has reduced the complexity of our network monitoring. Just one pane of glass allows you to go back in time to look at different patterns. The solution has affected the workload of the network administrators in a positive way, letting them go back in time and see real-time stats… more»

What other advice do I have?

Try to find someone who's worked with the solution, get their take on it, and maybe try to compare it with a different solution to see the pros and cons. I would rate this as an eight out of ten. There are no perfect products out there, but Statseeker has been great. I've been using it for a few… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

SolarWinds and Ipswitch were on our shortlist before we chose Statseeker.

What is most valuable?

I find the speed of notification most valuable with using Statseeker. It's very quick with its notifications and the history is easily accessible. The history of outages, how long something's been… more»

How has it helped my organization?

In terms of network visibility, Statseeker can be very granular. We can tell it exactly where we want it to go and where we want it to check, or it can do an SNMP walk and find out where everything… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like the ability to update the dashboard. I would also like the ability to access via an API. Then I could produce a dashboard that my C level can understand. This is just so they can go and… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's probably $5K a year for the license.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, Statseeker has reduced the complexity of our network monitoring once it's installed. It provides a single pane of glass to go and look at a snapshot if anything's down or having any… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

SolarWinds was on my shortlist. I was almost in with them. I had done some free things using Splunk etc. Once I saw the demonstration in the Cisco lab, I knew this would be the easiest solution for me… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the historical data and the fact that it doesn't average it when it saves it.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution is used by our network operations center to identify down interfaces. It also allows us to predict the capacity on WAN circuits, as well as other circuits, to help us plan for upgrading.

What needs improvement?

The user interface needs to be made more intuitive.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

This is a solid and reliable solution, but it's not intuitive with respect to some of the setup and some of the selection for reports. Eventually, you can work through it. I would rate this solution a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered SolarWinds, but my counterpart was familiar with this solution from a former job and brought it in.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ping going out every second, which gives us almost instantaneous alerting. The user interface allows us to sort according to the source of… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have Statseeker alerts emailed to a Google group, and one of the members of that group is a Slack integration. This means that we get instant alerts on Slack, from… more»

What needs improvement?

This solution would be improved with better automatic discovery for ping-only devices. Every time we add an access point, which is a ping-only device, we also have to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We receive discounted pricing for being an educational user. Compared to other solutions such as Zabbix and AKiPS, this solution is very well priced.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have been using Statseeker the entire time that I have been with the company.

What other advice do I have?

If this solution offers a trial then I would suggest giving it a try. In my experience, there is not much better than this. We set a two-minute bundle time so that we… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have looked at a couple of other solutions like Zabbix and AKiPS, and Statseeker has consistently underpriced everybody.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is NetFlow.

How has it helped my organization?

The monitoring provided by this solution helps us to track down and solve issues.

What needs improvement?

In terms of being able to see everything at once, Statseeker is not quite there yet. It would be very nice to have the Cisco ACI option included in the regular license… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We pay a yearly maintenance fee of approximately $40,000 USD. The Cisco ACI option is not included in the regular maintenance fees.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

In the past, we used SolarWinds and find that Statseeker is more stable.

What other advice do I have?

While I would recommend this software to a colleague, I would also suggest running different products at the same time to see what works best. I like this solution because… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated ThousdandEyes and decided that it was not quite as mature as Statseeker, so we opted for this solution. We also considered Splunk.
