AppDynamics

AppDynamics is clearly well suited for monitoring e-commerce applications and I can see where it adds huge value for organisations with this application. It is less suited as an entire suite for our application but we do get value from the parts of the application which do suit our application.

LiveAction LiveNX

The product is best suited for performing assessments on your network infrastructure via data and voice over IP flows. Finding bandwidth hogs is also easy to do with the product (Similar to Plixer's Scrutinizer product), and permits point-and-click remediation of Quality of Service (QOS), layer2/3 transit problems, and security issues.

LiveAction LiveNX

  • Cost is VERY high for what this product does, but it's worth it if you do not have all of the expertise to prioritize your network properly

LiveAction LiveNX

There is not any other product that does exactly what LiveAction does. Some come about halfway close, like scrutinizer by Plixer. However, there is a gap with that product as it doesn't give proper quality of service recommendations, or to update l2/l3 configs to head off problems. Plixer's scrutinizer product costs about the same. It was a no-brainer to pick LiveAction.

LiveAction LiveNX

  • LiveAction kept us from having to buy more bandwidth from our ISP due to overutilization. This saved our team over $600/month.
  • Had to turn off automatic network fixes as the product was a little overzealous with some of the changes implemented automatically moved back to manually implemented changes.
  • The product also allowed us to give great baselines for what we switching we need to upgrade, and what is still good.
