"The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."
"It does everything we wanted it to do."
"The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done."
"The most valuable feature is application monitoring."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to receive in-depth information about applications. It can detect a lot of important information."
"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly."
"The monitoring so far has been good and we are happy with it."
"The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use."
"Data exporting is easy, and this tool works seamlessly with other solutions. It's a stable and low-priced solution."
"Azure Monitor is very stable."
"Provides an overview and high-level information."
"Azure Monitor is useful because of the useful application insights and telemetry, such as metrics and logs."
"The most valuable features of Azure Monitor are the login analytics workspace and we can write any kind of custom queries in order to receive the data that is inserted into the login analytics workspace, diagnostic settings, et cetera."
"The feature that I found most valuable in Azure Monitor is its monitoring abilities. With Azure Monitor, you are able to monitor all of your cloud resources across multiple subscriptions in one dashboard and create solution-specific alerts that can trigger an email to the team responsible for that specific solution."
"You can scale the product."
"The biggest benefit of Geneos is the fact that we can clearly see, if we have an alert, where that alert has come from. We can see the data around that alert and anything that might be relevant is also shown. We can very easily right-click and see why we've received that alert. That's the best part about it, that you've got all the data there with the alerting."
"It's also easy to implement. The implementation of Geneos is very easy and interesting. It's not complicated. It's very quick to implement. The installation is very easy. There are many topics about ITRS Geneos that explain more about the features of the function of Geneos."
"The ability to completely tailor and customize what it's monitoring is one of its strongest points. A lot of other monitoring tools are good at certain things, but one of my colleagues described it as the “Swiss Army Knife” of monitoring tools. It can do anything you want."
"The solution is used across the entire investment banking division, covering environments such as electronic trading, algo-trading, fixed income, FX, etc. It monitors that environment and enables a bank to significantly reduce down time. Although hard to measure, since implementation, we have probably seen some increased stability because of it and we have definitely seen teams a lot more aware of their environment. Consequently, we can be more proactive in challenging and improving previously undetected weaknesses."
"One of the best aspects of Geneos is that it has a broad scope and can cover a lot of use cases. You can write your own scripts to monitor really specific things. And the rules that you can put in place can be quite complex for the alerts."
"There has been some problem with the agent, and it is just not working well. It is not able to record information with the application server. They have been able to fix the issue, but it took quite a long time. This is the main issue in the APM products and also in New Relic. The mobile application monitoring has been pretty difficult to set up and also quite expensive. It should be a little bit easier and cheaper. Because it is pretty difficult and expensive, many customers don't take it."
"How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited."
"I haven't come across any features that are lacking."
"It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."
"The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be."
"The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure."
"They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive."
"It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards."
"There are a lot of things that take more time to do, such as charting, alerting, and correlation of data, and things like that. Azure Monitor doesn't tell you why something happened. It just tells you that it happened. It should also have some type of AI. Environments and applications are becoming more and more complex every day with hundreds or thousands of microservices. Therefore, having to do a lot of the stuff manually takes a lot of time, and on top of that, troubleshooting issues takes a lot of time. The traditional method of troubleshooting doesn't really work for or apply to this environment we're in. So, having an AI-based system and the ability to automate deployments of your monitoring and configurations makes it much easier."
"This solution could be improved with more out-of-the-box functionalities and artificial intelligence to complete event correlation."
"In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs."
"Azure Monitor could improve the visualization aspect and integrate better with other third-party services."
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie."
"They need to work with other cloud providers - not just Azure."
"Setting up this solution is complex. It's also missing the functionality of assigning alerts."
"This solution has fewer features than some of its competitors, so adding more features to it would make it better."
"The deployment method for upgrading is a bit tricky. It takes a little bit of manual effort. If that could be a bit more automated, it would help us a lot."
"Mobile phone integration is probably not as rich as it could be."
"ITRS have started to make some major changes that we haven't taken on board yet, in the creation of dashboards and more visibility of the metrics that we collect. At the moment, that's something that's lacking, but I know they have addressed it. Still, it’s not that easy to create stuff to help with visibility and dashboarding in Geneos."
"There is a part of the rules for monitoring alerts. I want to understand more about how to choose the samples and the requirements for the rules. That is the part that I want to understand better and get better training for."
"One area where there is room for improvement is the log file. I would like to be able to do a pre-run on the log files. When you are testing log files for regular expressions, it would be good to be able to do a quick check up front on that side of things before you release that into production."
