We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like the prediction features.""Moogsoft's most valuable features are event management, correlation, and observability.""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."

"It has quite extensive support in terms of integration. If you want to do anything, there are tools for that.""The connections to the database are very good and updating the data files is simple to do. The dashboards are useful and user-friendly.""I am satisfied with the support.""The additional vendors we've brought on board, particularly the elastic, have been quite beneficial.""The product is good, it satisfies our customers.""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.""Great platform with user-friendly interface and GUI.""The feature that I have found most valuable with Splunk is the ability to sift through a bunch of data very quickly."

More Splunk Pros →

"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.""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.""They should consider including Chatbot.""Moogsoft is dependent on external products to do orchestration and SOP-based functionality.""I would like to see additional reports or information on the dashboard that includes metrics about CPU usage and memory."

More Moogsoft Cons →

"The algorithms customization of Splunk could improve. They have limited algorithms for machine learning support. If they can allow the user to add more machine learning algorithms, such as the ability to choose the algorithm that a user might want. Additionally, they should provide the required libraries for those algorithms, and then analyzes the data for use.""Its reporting can be improved. That's the only complaint I have heard. I don't need the reporting part, but I know that other people in the organization need it.""I haven't found a way for me to create my own plugins and integrate them into Splunk, but this isn't necessarily a limitation; it could simply be a lack of knowledge on my part.""Could be more user friendly.""Splunk is more expensive than other solutions.""It would be nice if they had a wizard to construct searches, including more complex searches that include math or statistics.""The documentation is in definite need of improvement.""You do need a lot of training and certification with this product."

    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.”

    Reviews from Real Users

    Splunk stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its flexible search query tools and its strong AI capabilities.

    A Solutions Consultant at a tech services company notes, “It provides a lot of analytics with the underlying AI engine, and it is a lot easier than other solutions. There are some products that do automated AI-based detection and drawing up charts, but for network monitoring and all of the monitoring aspects, it is quite a nice tool. It is very convenient for business users because they get more or less a lot of data readily available. If you're familiar with the Splunk query language, you can pretty much do whatever you want.”
