Statseeker Benefits

The fact that it doesn't aggregate the information up, it's very good at troubleshooting. The fact that you have all the information there, it's very easy if you require the information to go back and get it. It's very quick when you're doing a report or when you're looking at something, it's very quick to give you the information. How it improves how we function: its ease of use and its responsiveness.

Statseeker helps solve an asymmetrical routing issue we had before. We could see traffic going out of one interface, but not coming back in. An operations guy made a change and told us it was good. We didn't check it, we had too much going on. When I clicked in and looked at the traffic, you could tell it wasn't right. I had to log in and correct them so. That is a pretty good example of basic metrical routing. View full review »

The product has improved our organization by simplifying monitoring and giving real-time alerts for issues we might not immediately be aware of otherwise. If we notice five devices with latency or errors, I wouldn't know that if I didn't command line into 800 devices and check every day. I can see the status on the dashboard and it just makes it easy to know where the problems are. If we didn't have that capability by using Statseeker, then it would be very complex to monitor. We'd need to have another tool or manually log into every device to try to check things. And this product just does it all for us. That streamlines and improves our workload so that we only need to have two people in our office for the network team. It improves availability. If a circuit goes down texts and email alerts get sent out. So, even if it's in the evening or we're not on premises, we'll know if something's down. We use it all the time because it really helps.

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. View full review »

Statseeker helps us in diagnosing problems. For example, if you see a heavy amount of traffic on a link, it's really easy in Statseeker to reverse engineer where that traffic is coming from, and troubleshoot your way backwards, hop by hop, along the path. In terms of network complexity, this solution just helps. You're dealing with real data. With other tools, everything's rolled up into averages and it can mask some issues at times. We find it really useful to be able to get down to that per-minute statistics because it gives you a more realistic view of what's going on. I don't think it has affected our availability. It's really just getting us the monitoring details. View full review »

Network Engineer at Banner Health
Just recently, we were having some issues with a certain site, and it was only Statseeker that showed us what the problem was. It was a lot of errors on a certain circuit. Then we were able to resolve that. There are other tools for network monitoring, but not to the level that Statseeker does. It tends to consolidate a lot of the questions that we would be going to other tools for. It helps in picking and choosing the answer. I think this solution has reduced the workload time of our network admin team. It reduces the troubleshooting time when there is a problem. I would like to think that it's increased our network availability. View full review »

Prior to using it, the company was using something really basic, it was very slow and it didn't have descriptive statistics at all. Statseeker provides a lot more graphics, the reports are very user friendly, the tools are very easy to use, and it's very quick. View full review »

This is a very cheap solution in order for us to accomplish what we needed to do in terms of providing visibility into the network. The visibility is such that it allows us to be a little proactive when it comes down to issues in the environment. It provides us with graphs and stats that we can use to make sure that there is not an issue with the network. This solution complements our network monitoring. We have other products that provide a more comprehensive type of monitoring, and this one supplements that, especially for the retail environment. It allows us to have some visibility into our service provider's equipment. It provides us the last-mile circuits down to the stores that we have. It has helped our network admin team because it gives them visibility into the environment when there are issues. Workload-wise, I think it probably saves them time. It just allows us to be more proactive. It gives a way to diagnose issues when they arise. View full review »

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 Statseeker, whenever an event happens. All of our UPS units are set to send SNMP traps to Statseeker whenever their batteries are in need of replacement, or they start failing self-tests. Statseeker then generates an alert based on that trap, which proactively tells our UPS people that this battery is in trouble. View full review »

Senior Network Engineer at Banner Health
This solution helps us to track down problems faster. Whether it is a down network switch or a down router, we can get back online faster for the customers. When we are alerted as to something going down, it could just be power related or a circuit from the ISP. After finding out that it is down, five minutes later I might get an alert to say that it’s back up. This saves me the hassle of having to contact the customer. View full review »

Chet Craig
Senior Manager of Core Network Operations at US Cellular
We recently had a cluster of firewalls that wigged out and we were able to pinpoint it in a matter of minutes to find which one wigged out. Statseeker helps reduce the complexity of our network monitoring because it's real-time, or somewhat real-time, so we're able to see stuff quickly and react to it. I think it's reduced the workload of our network admin team, in the fact that they're able to verify relatively quick the capacity and utilization of the links. View full review »
