Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.

Pros
"It is an open platform, so in terms of integration, we are quite happy. We can integrate it with other SNMP solutions. We can also integrate it with security solutions, such as a SIEM solution.""The artificial intelligence and automatic detection system in Flowmon Solution are perfect for every, type of customer, such as government and commerce."

"The quick drill-down views are similar to Wireshark views. Those are quite nice, with the views on how you interpret some of the data. The granularity of how far you can drill down into milliseconds or microseconds is a very nice feature. It actually stores quite a lot of data in its database.""The solution transforms packet wire data into real-time data that is actionable. It helps us with faster detection of issues and allows us to create alerts.""The stability of this product is ok.""If a lot of traffic from one site is hitting AWS Cloud or the data center, then we want to know which client is utilizing the most bandwidth. We will work with nGeniusONE to troubleshoot the issue.""The installation process is straightforward.""The ability of the dashboards is useful for discover, mapping and understanding of application behaviour."

Cons
"It would be helpful to have more details about the monitoring of the infrastructure. It should have support for SNMP. This is something that is currently not there in the product.""If there was better visualization in Flowmon Solution it would be good."

More Flowmon Solution Cons →

"Initial setup was complex.""They can improve still on the workflows, document their workflows that are commonly used... We don't know some of the workflows yet, and it's not something that you can just read up in the manual. There is some stuff in the help manual and online, but it's to a point where you need to purchase extra training and services from them. You can't just go and read up on it yourself and learn from A to Z...""The initial deployment is tedious and requires a lot of build, deployment and configuration time. Experience is key to a successful deployment.""Initially, we were having a lot of issues with bugs when using version 6.1.1. There were a lot of problems with the dashboard causing confusion. We worked with our SE and the NETSCOUT engineering team to fix the visibility with the data. There should be a patch release to fix this issue. However, this seems to be working fine for us right now after the 6.2.2 upgrade.""There was a point in GTP where we were creating services on nodes and after that we wanted to have services on APN. We can't have both... There are some limitations with these types of things. When we would like to use a feature, we have to remove another one.""The solution could do more for security. It should offer more security-related features."
