One pane of glass enables you to go back in time to look at different patterns

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use of Statseeker is for monitoring and the utilization of our network devices. We initially got Statseeker because we needed more visibility and better historical data.

Pros and Cons

  • "Being able to look back historically at the uptime and downtime is invaluable."
  • "We haven't seen an ROI."

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 months now and it's served our purposes.

The single pane of glass for traditional and SDN affects our network management by making it easier

What is our primary use case?

We use Statseeker to monitor all the devices on our network. This includes: * the network switches * our gateways to the cloud * our kiosks that are mounted throughout our building * any other device we deem to be important We want to know exactly when they go down.

Pros and Cons

  • "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 is. It's very detailed."
  • "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 refresh whenever they want to and see what things look like."

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 transitions, i.e. within the last hour or last twenty-four hours. You can look at the data coordinator and if you see something red, you know something's wrong. If you don't see anything red, you know nothing's wrong. It just takes a glance. Even our help desk, if they're not in-network experienced, they can tell if something's down. The single pane of glass for traditional and SDN affects our network…

Helps identify down interfaces and maintains useful historical data, but the user interface needs to be more intuitive

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution for polling and interface utilization.

Pros and Cons

  • "It also allows us to predict the capacity on WAN circuits, as well as other circuits, to help us plan for upgrading."
  • "The user interface needs to be made more intuitive."

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 seven and a half out of ten.

Near-instantaneous alerts help us to quickly narrow down problems

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is network monitoring.

Pros and Cons

  • "We are a smaller enterprise, but we're watching approximately fifteen-thousand switchboards with no problem at all."
  • "This solution would be improved with better automatic discovery for ping-only devices."

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 don't get completely inundated with alerts. There is a bug we have encountered, where if we accidentally add a ping-only device as an SNMP device, and then that device goes down, it doesn't report back as "down". Overall, I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Easy to use and more stable than other products I have experience with

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution for monitoring. We use the Mac version. Our investment in this solution was customer-driven. When we have a request from a client business we look at what we have. If we cannot satisfy the request then we look into investments such as this.

Pros and Cons

  • "The monitoring provided by this solution helps us to track down and solve issues."
  • "It would be very nice to have the Cisco ACI option included in the regular license."

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 I have used different products and I find this one is simpler. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Troubleshoots network congestion well, but is expensive

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to control bandwidth congestion, and also for the recovery of unused data network ports.

Pros and Cons

  • "We're able to recover more expensive ports on our access line devices."
  • "If it had more detailed NetFlow information then it would be far better."

What other advice do I have?

This product provides some good functionality. However, the reporting is right to left, which is less than ideal, the cost is significantly high, and the NetFlow capabilities are lacking. My advice is to go with AKIPS, rather than this solution. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
