What is most valuable?

Being able to see both packet performance data, Netflow, and SNMP together in one screen makes problem resolution easy to tackle.

What needs improvement?

When I first reviewed the TruView solution today it was quite comprehensive but through the version releases Fluke Networks and now NETSCOUT have continued to make the product better. Whilst Citrix could be handled better like their nGenius product line (which does an excellent job) it copes with… more»

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

Licensing is very simple. There is the product and then Flow and VoIP licenses. If you just want to analyse standard application traffic then there is no more to spend. The Flow and VoIP licenses are inexpensive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Over the years I have been involved with OPNET (acquired by Riverbed) and ClearSight (also acquired by NETSCOUT). I have found that from a simple network and application 24/7 tool the other products required a lot more 'engineering' effort to resolve issues.

What do you think of TruView?

Due to the nature of our business, we require continuous operations with zero tolerance for network performance delays or downtime. Performance expectations are high for our IT team and network. We rely on optimal network response times to our auction applications and databases to present, track, and sell plants and flowers as quickly as possible. As soon as one product is sold, we need to be able to showcase the next item immediately. Time is of the essence, and we can’t waste it with unnecessary troubleshooting steps. In an auction clock environment, plants and flowers are brought into a room to be bid on by both in-person and online buyers. A database pushes information to the clock, which displays the product, quantity, price, and time left at auction. Bidders push a button to…

What do you think of TruView?

Before utilizing Visual TruView, we were forced to take a reactive approach to client problems. Any incoming issues would be investigated through a limited platform we had, providing only basic network and application information. While we could identify if an application was running and see generic network information, any real intelligence was absent and required hours of manual testing and analysis before our consultant or engineer could find and resolve the problem (if they could resolve the problem at all). We wanted to expand our presence in the network monitoring field, but to do so, we needed a network and application performance monitoring solution that could provide a complete view and detailed analytics. This would allow our team to strategically identify, track and remediate…

What do you think of TruView?

Our IT department is responsible for maintaining key systems and applications for all corporate locations, more than 500 stores across the U.S., and the e-commerce retail websites. Not having insight into these key applications and the underlying network infrastructure that supports them meant teams were always in a reactive mode when isolating and fixing problems. As a member of the networking team, we’re responsible for monitoring performance of more than 100 custom applications, store circuit performance, database applications, key business applications like Exchange and Lync, client access, vendor networks and more. If we can’t access the needed network and application performance data, we can’t isolate and fix the problem. Teams just finger point and the guesswork begins to try and…

What is TruView?

Visual TruView by Fluke Networks is a unified solution for Application Aware Network Performance Management (AANPM). TruView embeds the most important data sources such as packet, transaction, NetFlow/IPFIX, and SNMP to present analytics in a time-correlated single dashboard view. These correlated views help you quickly see how well the infrastructure is transporting applications and how well those applications are performing in the context of end-user experience. And, TruView’s integrated 10 Gbps full line rate stream-to-disk packet capture ensures you’ll never miss an important event again.
