"It allows us to digest the information, the data, the different data streams, so we can make decisions based upon information that we receive, and it is pretty robust.""The solution is very fast and succinct.""The indexing and data collection are valuable.""The reporting aspect is good and it does what I need it to do.""The ability to ingest different log types from many different products in our environment is most valuable.""We have found all the features useful. However, the dashboarding and logging have been very helpful. Additionally, the log analysis does a great job.""I have found the installation can be of medium difficulty to very complex depending on the use case.""Splunk would be my choice for the presentation layer because it comes with inbuilt reports and a dashboard that you can customize."

More ExtraHop Reveal(x) for IT Operations Cons →

"The solution could improve by giving more email details.""I have concerns about the architecture as well since I can see it is not very well defined.""The solution could improve by increasing the performance. We have run into problems when large amounts of data are processed.""Writing queries is a bit complicated sometimes.""We had some connections issues with the solution at the beginning.""In the next releases, I would like to see more pricing flexibility.""The solution should also have more advanced capabilities in comparison with QRadar, which offers Watson.""I find the graphical options really limited and you don't have enough control over how to display the data that you want to see."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "Its pricing model can be improved."
  • "The pricing model is based on the number of gigabytes that you ingest into the Splunk system. So it can be an expensive solution."
  • "My customers have found the price of the solution to be high."
  • "The price of Splunk is reasonable."
  • "The subscription is monthly."
  • "It can be cost-prohibitive when you start to scale and have terabytes of data. Its cost model is based on how much data it processes a day. If they're able to create scaled-down niche or custom package offerings, it may help with the cost. Instead of the full-blown features, if they can narrow the scope where it can only be used for a specific purpose, it would kind of create that market for the product, and it may help with the costing. When you start using it as a central aggregator and you're pumping tons of logs at it, pretty soon, you'll start hitting your cap on what it can process a day. Once you've got that, you're kind of defeating the purpose because you're going to have to scale back."
  • "It's a yearly subscription."
  • "This product could use better pricing in general."
