We performed a comparison between PRTG Network Monitor and Splunk ITSI (IT Service Intelligence) based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two IT Infrastructure Monitoring solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"PRTG is integrated on Windows."
"PRTG is relatively intuitive and fairly straightforward. It has net flow monitoring and that works all right. I would describe it as a decent middle-of-the-road solution."
"The most valuable features of PRTG Network Monitor are user-friendly, and the graphical interface is good for all the network devices that are mapped in this organization. It's very easy to find reports for any devices that we are looking for."
"PRTG Network Monitor's best features are its flexibility, ease of implementation, user-friendliness, and intuitive interfaces."
"PRTG Network Monitor is a very stable product."
"PRTG gives us true visibility of the downtime of particular circuit functions. So if a circuit is up but not routing traffic, I will know with this tool. I can write a customized script for a sensor to detect specific things."
"The remote probe feature in PRTG Network Monitor helps you monitor remote systems or your network at a lower cost than other solutions."
"It allows us to directly add individual VMs independently."
"The glass tables are very helpful."
"In my opinion, Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) is better than QRadar. With the help of Splunk, we can get results."
"We save substantial time on monitoring tasks because we don't have to search for what we need. Everything is packed, so you can drill down to the end values by just doing the kit. We don't spend a lot of time on this. Splunk ITSI is easy to use and not time-consuming."
"We have a lot of teams using Splunk and they would be blind without it."
"I find the episode review, glass tables, and correlation search features very useful."
"It's scalable and expands well."
"The most valuable feature is the Glass Tables. It gives you a nice, good overview of your KPIs. It's really slick and clean."
"One of the excellent features is the service analyzer, which is truly impressive."
"PRTG would be improved if it required less memory to run."
"The automation should be improved."
"Integration into service management ticketing systems could be better. They should simplify the integration into big service management platforms like ServiceNow, Remedy, and Cherwell. They're really into monitoring, but they don't do any self-resolution. It would be better if the company moved more into the AIOps space so that you could actually kick off some remedies. I know that you can execute some commands from the tool, but you need to develop those all yourself. It would be really handy if they had some auto-remedy scripts that they could develop on top."
"PRTG does not allow us to scan devices like we can scan software or another problem in it. Also, I cannot draw graphical graphs in Woodview/look. Another problem is that we cannot draw a good diagram in PRTG."
"PRTG Network Monitor can improve by having better integration with devices."
"More training videos for installing and configuring this software would have been nice, especially when working with a lot of devices."
"The scalability of this solution could improve as well as the automated provisioning of the infrastructure."
"This solution is a good product so far, but I haven't been using it long enough to know how it could be improved."
"If the product had some prebuilt machine learning features, it would add value to our use cases."
"We'd like them to show more inputs on the dashboard."
"The cost of the license could be lower."
"It could be a little easier to use with the thresholding. We've struggled a little bit with thresholding."
"Microservices is the only area where Splunk ITSI can be improved. When things come from one EC2 instance to another, there's a lack of exposure to microservices, so we can't know what's happening. Apart from that, it's doing pretty well."
"It was an intimidating tool for us to jump into at the beginning."
"We're using predictive analytics, and there are three or four algorithms. It would be helpful if this process were more standardized and scalable."
"I believe the refresh time should be faster."
