What is most valuable?

The most important feature is just the fact that it doesn't aggregate the information up, and I can look at detailed information going back quite a long time. I find that useful in my role.

How has it helped my organization?

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… more»

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

One thing that needs improvement is how it's licensed. I understand historically the company licensed it off a same charge for everyone. I understand the company needs to make money, but how they… more»

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

I've been using the same product in my environment for all the time I've been here. As Statseeker has released extra features into the product, we have migrated sections of other tools. We have… more»

What other advice do I have?

From an end-user point of view, I would say it's fairly intuitive once you've got it up and running, once you've spent some time on it. It's a fairly intuitive product as to how to generate reports… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I came into the environment after it was already built. We did compare it against another product to see if the other product could take over from Statseeker, and we determined that that was not… more»

What is most valuable?

Statseeker is quick and very simple to use. We want to keep it like that. It has to be simple. The solution has affected our workload with all our network admin teams. They don't use this tool as much… more»

How has it helped my organization?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

With Statseeker I'd like to see some flow, i.e. what's tuning-up the network. The trend I like is managing the traffic load by going to the cloud. Statseeker tells you routing-wise how things are… more»

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

We have sixteen to twenty-thousand interfaces at a minimum.

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

For software and hardware, how we spend the money depends on demand and what we have going on. One year, we could have campus refresh, and if we have a little bit of change left over we'd spend it on… more»

What other advice do I have?

Statseeker reduces the complexity of your network monitoring. It is easy. You don't have to go in and show the guys how to log in and check this and that. They can just click whichever router is… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is that it is simple. I can modify the dashboard to show whatever I want to see. I could have a top list of devices with higher latency or things like that… more»

How has it helped my organization?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

I can't think of any additional features that I'd like added to the product right now. However, one feature that was just added recently was one that we really wanted: a forecasting feature. It just… more»

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

The product has helped us reduce costs overall. We pay yearly and I think Statseeker was purchased by somebody else a few years ago. Before that, we paid like $3,500 a year. After they were purchased… more»

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

There was a different solution but that was before I was involved and I really wasn't in the decision-making process for choosing this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the product as a nine out of ten. I really like the product. I think it does what it does very well. We have a couple of other products that we use for monitoring different specific… more»

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 important feature for us is how fast this solution is, as well as the granularity that you can get to, such as per-minute statistics. These are really useful for us. This solution is… more»

How has it helped my organization?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

The interface could improve a little bit. I find with new users, I tend to have to spend a bit of time walking them through how to use the interface. It could be a little more user-friendly. Once you… more»

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

I can't remember what the initial cost was, but I think we paid $5,000 to $10,000 a year in maintenance.

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

We were having trouble getting meaningful statistics out of our other monitoring solutions. We used SolarWinds Orion and we still use it to some extent for other purposes. We switched to get that… more»

What other advice do I have?

I'd absolutely recommend it. It's a great product. The biggest lesson I've learned from using Statseeker is the fact that granularity matters. If you look at a problem over 15-minute averages, or… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature to me is that the data is there and you can easily get to it. I don't have to worry about a whole lot of maintenance for the product, it just seems to always work. I'm very satisfied with the solution's granularity… more»

How has it helped my organization?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

Maybe they could provide a little bit more flexibility on creating custom dashboards. The only other thing that I wish that they would implement soon is that they don't support SNMPv3 TRAPs. I would like to see that back in.

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

We have permanent licenses so there's really no cost, other than ongoing maintenance. When I think about it, that's running us about $20,000 a year.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely advise them to look closely at it because it's been a benefit to us and I believe that there is a lot of value there, especially if you're in a bandwidth-constrained environment. It's not as common nowadays, but back in… more»

What is most valuable?

The most important feature for us is the interface statistics, because our customer normally asks us for bandwidth utilization reports. Statseeker has very descriptive transmit and receive… more»

How has it helped my organization?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

I spoke to James Wells from Statseeker. We use an application called Dynatrace, which was formerly Compuware, and he was saying that they might be able to integrate Statseeker with Dynatrace. What… more»

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

We now feel the pricing is a good value. Previously we had a just a normal license but now we've got an Enterprise license. Since the Enterprise, it's been a lot better value. We did think it was… more»

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

They used a system called Cacti and it wasn't user friendly. To get to an interface it took a long time. You'd go to the router and from the router you had to find the interface. It wasn't as easy as… more»

What other advice do I have?

Go for it. I recommend it. I think it's great value. It's an easy tool to use. Support is fantastic and Statseeker are always looking to improve. We've had a few meetings where they always ask for… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the recovery of the unused data ports. We're able to recover more expensive ports on our access line devices. For example, we can run a report… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has somewhat helped the workload of our network admin team. The recovery reports have streamlined our process, and diagnosing certain congestions is easier. This… more»

What needs improvement?

If it had more detailed NetFlow information then it would be far better. This would allow us to find the top talkers and congestion situations. It would be helpful to be… more»

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

This tool would probably be priced well if it had deeper NetFlow capabilities, but for our use case, in particular, we're only recovering ports after ninety days and… more»

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

We have used several different solutions. The SolarWinds solution is probably the most encompassing and probably the closest thing that we can get to a single pane of… more»

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… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

AKIPS offers pretty much an exact feature set to Statseeker but is significantly less expensive.
