"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"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 VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."
"The monitoring so far has been good and we are happy with it."
"The stability of New Relic APM is very good."
"We like the performance of the product."
"There are many valuable features in New Relic APM. We developed some software applications and we are able to monitor the errors very easily. Their log security retention is very good."
"The URL monitoring is excellent."
"Infrastructure monitoring is the most valuable feature."
"Our experiences with Micro Focus SiteScope have been mostly positive as we can easily work with multiple monitors and different types of monitors pretty quickly. There are a lot of out-of-the-box solutions for us through Micro Focus SiteScope, so we don't have to do that much custom coding for the vast majority of requests that we get for monitoring. There are some limitations that we've run into and some problems every once in a while, but they've been relatively minor."
"Being able to create your monitors for monitoring your internal URLs and databases and other things like that is valuable."
"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."
"Splunk can extract all kinds of data. There's no limitation on what kind of structured and unstructured data one needs to extract — it can access any kind of data, including machine-generated data."
"I have found the installation can be of medium difficulty to very complex depending on the use case."
"Splunk has machine learning which is a valuable feature."
"The most valuable feature is the log aggregation, being able to scan through all of the logs."
"We can easily configure things as required in relation to our use cases."
"The most valuable aspect of the solution is the dashboard. It's very intuitive."
"You can use it to gather syslog messages from anything."
"What is nice about the solution is that it makes it easy to build the queries, search for the events and then do analysis."
"I haven't come across any features that are lacking."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards."
"They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive."
"New Relic APM could improve error debugging and the correlation with the logs. We are receiving some alerts or alarms but we need to correlate with the error log, but it is difficult if it is more than seven months retention period, it is hard to trace. We need this especially for getting historical information."
"How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited."
"New Relic APM can improve the information when we dig deeper to check a problem. There should be more detailed information provided."
"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."
"In terms of issues with Micro Focus SiteScope, some that we've run into were unintended, for example, extra executions of monitors and some false alerts when there were problems connecting to endpoints or there were issues with the application that sometimes resulted in false positives. We had a few issues with the way time zones were configured when the system time differed from the time indicated during the monitoring, but those were just little things that weren't too bad. As far as the limitations of Micro Focus SiteScope, the types of scripting files that can be executed are rather limited unless you go to some third-party plugins. These are the areas for improvement in the solution."
"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."
"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."
"They need to offer better technical support, which, right now, is not helpful or responsive."
"We have four or five data centers around North America where we have it deployed into a single or a two-server primary backup type of deployment. All those are made available under a single GUI provided by Micro Focus that allows you to put them all together. A room for improvement would be an appliance or a server that would manage all of our other servers so that I don't have to remember to log on to all different servers and data centers. I could manage them from a single location."
"There are a lot of competitive products that are doing better than what Splunk is doing on the analytics side."
"Splunk is more expensive than other solutions."
"The product is relatively expensive."
"From the commercial point of view, they have to bring down their costs."
"The implementation and the scanning of the logs can be difficult."
"If you monitor too much, you can lose performance on your systems."
"Over time I will have more requirements and I can foresee the solution could improve the search algorithm to run and output the data faster."
"It currently has limited default rules and customizations. If they can concentrate more on the compliance part and the security information part, it would be helpful. The platform part is good, but it requires many features from the security aspect."
