We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

The cost, pricing, and licensing are better compared to other solutions.
The licensing cost is yearly and it's $5,000 to $8,000, I think.
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 looking at circuit congestion, it's pretty pricey.
We pay somewhere between $5,000 and $8,000 yearly in licensing fees.
Statseeker is pretty cheap.
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, the licensee structure changed a little bit. Before that, we had educational pricing and after that, we had to go to a per-interface pricing structure. So, we had 20,000 interfaces that we could monitor with that license and we were in still in the $3,500 to $4,000 range. That is our yearly cost; I don't know if there was another initial cost. Now we're paying $4,500 or so because we upped our license to 25,000 interfaces.
I can't remember what the initial cost was, but I think we paid $5,000 to $10,000 a year in maintenance.
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.
It would definitely be a yearly licensing cost, but I don't know what it is.
It's probably $5K a year for the license.
We have sixteen to twenty-thousand interfaces at a minimum.
We receive discounted pricing for being an educational user. Compared to other solutions such as Zabbix and AKiPS, this solution is very well priced.
When it came to selecting this solution, it came down to cost. Our licensing fees are on an annual basis.
We pay a yearly maintenance fee of approximately $40,000 USD. The Cisco ACI option is not included in the regular maintenance fees.
