The solution is very much viewer centric and it would be nice if it would transcend just the virtual infrastructure. Beyond that, I can't speak to any features that may be lacking. I don't work on the product on a personal level. I only get feedback from my engineering team and through them I have a bit of an understanding of the product. View full review »

I would give 7 to 8. There is always room for improvement. For example: Deployment process ,Appliance and Proxy VM, is getting configuration done in VM Console. This configuration can definitely be done on web interface (e.g. vROPS) for sake of simplicity and admin sanity. LDAP / Active Directory integration configuration is not straight forwards as with other products on vRealize portfolio Roles and User permissions configuration differs from other products, and in scenarios where certain group of individual need to have specific permissions across vRealize products configuration is not out of the box. Clustering across Geo locations (Dual Site scenarios or different L2 Domains) or any other mechanism that can provide HA or maintain data availability across sites. Offering few sizes of deployment would benefit customers that don't have big foot print in on-prem or cloud, but still would like to get the product into their infrastructure, for whatever reason. Current size of the virtual appliance is not suitable for small and medium size environments. View full review »

Log Insight from VMware is similar to what Network Insight does. If it had some kind of plugins with vSphere, more effective plugins with Horizon View or other VMWare products, if it had interconnectivity, I think it would be more effective than it is today. View full review »

I want to be able to monitor a network flow that is approximately two weeks back, but I haven't found an easy way to do this. Right now, I am not getting the result I want. So, I want to see the timeline two weeks back from now, including all the flows. I haven't figured out how to do this. If this is not possible now, maybe in the next release, as this would be a very nice function for me. View full review »
