Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""The flexibility of the product is most valuable. It is highly customizable. If you put your mind to it and think of something you could do, there's a good possibility you can get it integrated within the console, if it's not readily available. The simplicity or ease of customization has been valuable.""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.""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 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."

"Moogsoft's most valuable features are event management, correlation, and observability.""I like the prediction features.""The AI component allows you to check previous cases and diagnose problems easily.""The Event Management feature is quite valuable.""There are AI features in Moogsoft. Moogsoft has one wonderful feature that allows you to convert multiple alarms into situations. Generally, all other MoM tools get the alarms, and then convert it into an incident directly. There is one extra layer they have added before converting any alarm into an incident. Suppose there are multiple alarms that are somehow all related to a single source of issue. It converts all the alarms into a single situation, which then gets converted into an incident."

Cons
"Mobile phone integration is probably not as rich as it could be.""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.""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.""For the last year or two, I've been asking the vendor about the mobile app. This is something that probably everyone asks when they see the tool and they see how powerful it is. If there is any mobile app for this or if there is any way this tool can be more easily accessible other than having a big client installed, it would be great. I know you can build dashboards, et cetera, but there is no quick and easy way. I should be able to download an app, log in, and see my status. That will put this product above everything else out there. I believe it's on their roadmap.""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."

"They should consider including Chatbot.""Moogsoft is dependent on external products to do orchestration and SOP-based functionality.""They are very much dependent on open-source technologies like RabbitMQ message bus. They are using open-source databases, Apache Tomcat, NGINX. If we face any issues with Apache Tomcat or the RabbitMQ message bus, then we do not get support from them. We have to troubleshoot it ourselves.""I would like to see additional reports or information on the dashboard that includes metrics about CPU usage and memory.""I would like to see how Moogsoft integrates with the multi-cloud and brings out a single pane of glass, to see everything on one screen."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is expensive. They have to look at the model around when we move to cloud and how that's going to work. The licensing cost does pay off because of the improvements in support to our business."
  • "When I first came in, their pricing was very high. ITRS had a high expectation of what their price should be based on perceived value. I think they have been realizing, more recently, that there are other competitors, so their pricing is a lot better. Licensing for on-premise is okay, however I feel there is quite some work to be done for cloud and containers. We're still working with them to try and work out what that pricing should look like."
  • "Given our spend and the amount of service we have in it, the pricing is quite reasonable."
  • "The pricing seems reasonable. We're happy enough with it."
  • "The pricing is fairly market-related. They have been very lenient because we have been working with them for so long. An example is that we're currently migrating some of our services to AWS, and they've given us a grace period for some of the things to help with the migration and not to grow additional costs while we are migrating, but it's still on par with the market."

  • "When compared to other solutions, it is quite good."
  • "Moogsoft's licensing is consumption-based, so the price may increase depending on the environment."

    Moogsoft sits on top of an organization’s production stack and extends across automation, service management, log indexing, and notification tools.

Moogsoft’s anomaly detection tools detect incidents as they emerge, allowing security teams to respond swiftly before they impact customers.

    Teams can easily set up their own integrations using Moogsoft’s REST API and webhook. The solution provides guidance for each step, allowing users to import data from whatever tool they need with just a few mouse clicks.

No matter what their defined role in the organization is, everyone on the DevOps team can immediately step in when needed.

    • Data enrichment: Multidomain enrichment data added as context with ingested alerts provide teams with important information on incidents, such as location, department, business relationships, and escalation processes. All data is imported from configuration database management systems, asset management databases, and discovery systems.

    • User-friendly interface: Moogsoft’s intuitive interface provides users with full step-by-step support. This includes videos and tutorials for all user levels.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Moogsoft stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. A few major ones are its monitoring tools, its user-friendly interface, and its strong AI capabilities.

    Vivek S., an O&M Lead at a communications service provider, writes, “The most valuable feature is the monitoring manager. Different components and different monitoring tools integrate with and send data to Moogsoft.

    This is a user-friendly solution. It is very easy and very comfortable to use, with everything available on a single screen.

    The AI component allows you to check previous cases and diagnose problems easily. It will show you what happened last time the same event occurred.”
