Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Very easy to implement.""The technical support is good at resolving issues.""The reporting feature is good for us.""The most useful feature of this solution is tracking. When the application's traffic has been monitored it is taken from that particular application and analyzed. It is then given a live session of that particular user. For example, if you are using your bank application to do some kind of transaction, everything that you do can be tracked by that application."

"The stability of the Micro Focus Voltage SiteScope is good.""VM monitoring is pretty good showing good visualizations of how VMs are operating within the context of all the VMs running on the same hypervisor.""Infrastructure monitoring is the most valuable feature."

Cons
"Everybody is moving away from traffic and installing agents on the application to do the job, but Micro Focus is using traditional ways to collect the traffic. They should change their architecture completely.""When we want to monitor our encrypted traffic, this product doesn't work because our cipher is not supported.""Some issues with login errors.""This technology is considered to be older."

More Micro Focus Real User Monitor Cons →

"I would be very interested in having transaction traceability included in the product, to give us a better view of what is really going wrong in a particular method and action.""The lack of an agent means that remote monitoring requires multiple firewall ports to be opened.""Micro Focus Voltage SiteScope could improve by adding more features, such as cloud, APM, and DevOps monitoring."

  • "When Micro Focus Voltage SiteScope has introduced approximately eight years ago and there was not very much competition making the price high. However, when comparing the price of Micro Focus Voltage SiteScope now to other tools, they should reduce the price. It is similar to a legacy tool at this point."

    Overview

    Real User Monitoring (RUM) an End user monitoring that gives you visibility into user behavior for fast, targeted problem resolution. It monitors the performance and availability of business-critical application services for all users at all locations all the time. It automatically discovers underlying infrastructure and classifies user actions - giving you instant visibility into session and whole service health over web, cloud, and mobile user experience. It allows you to trace user experience across tiers, capture live sessions, see where customers clicked, measure response times, and see pages that caused problems. And you can easily capture and replay user sessions to create test scripts that reflect real user behavior. All this data gives you new ability to analyze which application transactions your users are performing and what application response they are experiencing. RUM currently supports over 20 application protocols and applications such as SAP, Citrix, and native mobile application monitoring on Android.
