You need to make sure the product runs in your environment because it might not be compatible with some people's setup. For now, I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

We are still looking at other solutions to increase the capacity of the devices that are being monitored with DX Spectrum. We have a small set of devices being monitored and we are running a project to try to duplicate the monitoring on those devices. DX Spectrum has been great for us. It's the strongest available, the main problem is the pricing, but it's in accordance with the features. I can recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it. I would rate DX Spectrum an eight out of ten.

We have the DX Spectrum and DX NetOp for performance center management from Broadcom also. Actually, we have the full fledge from Broadcom and had it from Computer Associates before Broadcom started. The distributed installation is on-premise, and we have one interface server and approximately six Spectrum servers. I definitely recommend this product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to first make a plan on how you are going to implement and use it. It is important to know before you configure it, how it is that you want to use it. For example, we have a lot of different customers and they may not want to see the older devices from other customers. As a service provider, it is important to make a good plan on how you want to implement it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

One of the issues that we have is that our customers are not aware of the product's full capabilities and what it can do for them. We are running our own campaign to give our customers a better understanding of the benefit they can get from it. In summary, I think that it's a fantastic and durable product. For me, it is nice and I am actively recommending it to my clients. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

This is a good solution and I would recommend it for a big company. However, for a small business like ours, we need something that is less complex and easier to use. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

We going more for a solidified network so we need some improvement there, based on the current level of support for our network. And a more detailed integration with NetFlow data is important for us as well. I also feel that the CIS lock-based correlation needs to be developed as well. So on a scale from one to 10, I will rate CA Spectrum an eight.

We hope that the speed of the improvement and product growth will soon again be at the same level as when this was a CA product.
