I am in the process of reviewing Dynatrace and AppDynamics. For one, I had trouble installing AppDynamics on my Windows machine (Windows 2012 - 2016) and on Linux. When I gave it my credentials and port information, once that was done at the Linux level, it continued to ask…

Anders brings up a valid point, however, splunk, based on the definition of what a SIEM device is and what they consider it to be, they consider it to be a much larger solution than a SIEM tool (Big-data using even correlation and data/pattern matching). This comes from…

I would like to see root cause analysis and big data relationships as part of the overall solution. Also, the query should feed into a larger data matrix of solutions where they feed into machine learning solutions to address the problem - intelligent situational…

Hello, I have not been on the site in a while but I would like to start with my findings using VMware 6.0 (U 2), it seems that VMware has made numerous changes to the compatibility matrix as it relates to hardware. One of the changes we have found is the onboard NIC cards…

reviewer210162 - I think that is a very good and comprehensive list. I do think there are numerous tools to address issues in the market, we won't address all of them but I do think this is a good start or at least answering the question. Todd

I have to piggy back on Vinod, excellent analysis. I will be sure to keep the two solutions "Log Management" & "Correlation Engine - SIEM" separate when I have discussions about which product to choose. Todd

Yes, this has been out for quit some time. It is the new version of VMware 6 and the VMware vCloud Air. I have been using it for a while now VIO, they use to call it VOVA. I like it, and they offer the Openstack addition as a OVF that can be installed. HP has a…

@Santhakumar I think the only thing you were looking for was a matrix to do a SIEM comparison. It seems that people are making assumptions and while interjecting instead of listening to what you are asking. I am not going to assume, please review the list to see if this…

The VMware VCloud Director works very nice in this environment but to the point made earlier, It would like to see more interoperability with other open software organizations to create a ubiquitous solution that spans the glob e. Also, I would like to see VMware adopt…

The only problem I would say with this assertion is the issues with interoperability with Openstack and other openflow technologies. With openstack, there is a basic configuration you have to setup with the network connection "BR100", then the user has to setup a NFS…

I am in agreement with Mr. Perry, if you are looking at performance, ESXi is stripped down version of linux/unix that runs on a baremetal machine. In addition, the services that run on the ESXi server is very small in nature (VPXA, AAM, VMAP), most of the management is done…

→ What are the must-haves for a SIEM solution? I think to the point of Vikas, it is important to determine the size and scope of the device; however, the question was based on must haves, so if I were to answer the question it would the following: • Monitor S,J,N flows of…

@Dan, Out of all the things that I named, you picked the one thing that was part of an overall discussion of Citrix products. Ok, for one, in order to work with VDI, yes, it works on Xendesktop but it requires a license to use (the statement you made about a free license…

Sorry about that, there is a way to configure a teamed connection, it is called OVS bond or Linux bond but not with vmbr0. I think my question is why is it not part of the vmbr0 connection. I see that if bonding (2x connections) is involved, there needs to be more than 3…

Interesting, does Proxmox VE give you the capability of delivering VDI solutions to users? Also, since it runs on Debian, it should work pretty well with IPv6, does the solution support IPv6 using Openflow v1.3 (IPv6 capable virtual switches). Because if it does, then…

Citrix Xenserver 6.2 is free but it does not give you the ability to take advantage of the feature sets (i.e. VDI, moving vms from one server to the next, etc). So what I am referring to is in production and not a home built system. On thing I stated was there is a support…

@Horak, I would have to disagree with the statement about which one is better or worse and it does not matter. I think it does matter, because I want a product that I don't have monitor all the time, I want to know that it just works. Don't get me wrong, if I do think…

Sorry about that, the Citrix reinstatement fee is charged every year and not every month. One thing I have found is that VMware 5.1 has IPSec ESP/AH [ 3des-cbc | aes128-cbc ] capability, it is in its infancy stages (has to be configured at the command-line and it only…

One thing to note, since IPv6 is such a major push, we noticed the versions of Citrix did not support IPv6 modules, we had to load the module, go to the kernel (sysctl -w ...ipv6_enable=1), enabled the connection on network.conf file by making a few changes and then IPv6 was…
