    We are a services organization and we use Riverbed SteelCentral AppInternals with our customers. It has allowed us to expand the footprint in the application management business with virtually all of our major accounts. We were able to expand and go into other applications that we weren't in or offering previously. Now, we have a new value proposition for our customer enhanced visibility, enhanced stability, and we can reduce our cost to them because our cost structure is reduced by using Riverbed SteelCentral AppInternals.

    Splunk

    Pros: Splunk is very well suited if you have multiple log sources of related data. All of them can be correlated and tasks can be automated based on the requirement. Other than alerts, Splunk can also run a specific script of your choice, based on some defined conditions. Cons: If you have a few logs but a large number of log sources, Splunk can be very expensive.

    Pros

    Aternity

    • Root cause finding/remediation (it goes beyond analysis).
    • Shows latency between applications and servers.
    • Identifies long-running SQL queries, and puts the onus back on developers to clean up their SQL code.

    Splunk

    • Real-time + Scheduled alerts - i-e you can set up alerts which are actively monitoring your logs
    • Pretty good response time for search results. With our key/value logging, Splunk makes it blazing fast to query the data.
    • Dashboards provide insights into historical data
    • Love how Splunk indexes all of the data and provides keys to search on

    Cons

    Aternity

    • The tool demands High CPU resources to perform monitoring which reduces the overall performance and the user experience is sluggish
    • Also a good amount of training is required to set up the different use cases and monitoring parameters which in return demands a dedicated resource to work on the tool

    Splunk

    • At times some queries can run slowly if indices are not on a portion of the query you use.
    • Setup time initially can be difficult if your logs aren't stored in common locations or in a common way to write the log.
    • Ability to ingest logs from different locations without having to change code to put logs in a certain place (pro and con).
    • Searches can be a bit more difficult to look through if your log isn't pulled in a manner that is easy to read through splunk.

        Splunk

        We are using Splunk extensively in our projects and we have recently upgraded to Splunk version 6.0 which is quite efficient and giving expected results. We keep track of updates and new features Splunk introduces periodically and try to introduce those features in our day to day activities for improvement in our reporting system and other tasks.

        Splunk

        You can literally throw in a single word into Splunk and it will pull back all instances of that word across all of your logs for the time span you select (provided you have permission to see that data). We have several users who have taken a few of the free courses from Splunk that are able to pull data out of it everyday with little help at all.

        The support I give the highest rating because it is really amazing. Every time we triggered the tool support, we were very well served very quickly and efficiently. The problems were solved quickly and without stress. The staff helped us within minutes and had a lot of patience with us

        Splunk

        Splunk maintains a well resourced support system that has been consistent since we purchased the product. They help out in a timely manner and provide expert level information as needed. We typically open cases online and communicate when possible via e-mail and are able to resolve most issues with that method.

        Alternatives Considered

        Aternity

        There is a wide variety of APM solutions out there for companies to pick from. Riverbed AppInternals sits near the top of the stack certainly. We already deploy steelhead units across the estate with client licenses, that aided us in our decision to select AppInternals. We found the costs of AppDynamics and New Relic ( which we had trials for) both costly against AppInternals.

        Splunk

        I wanted to learn a new language that I can quickly master and implement. Splunk is easy, fun to use and best of all, it can be developed in hours not days or weeks. Splunk is fundamentally a programming language that is minimal but yet powerful enough to collect, analyze and visualize data.

        Return on Investment

        Aternity

        • This product has really wonderful features and one of the most valuable ones is the transaction searches into TTW.
        • This will show you the operations that occurred under conditions that the user specifies, giving you the opportunity to drill down on the things that are more important and affecting system performance.
        • Besides that, the capability of analyzing each individual transaction captured to a very low-level detail (method call/line of code). This ability empowers the testing teams to provide more visibility to developers on how they can improve.

        Splunk

        • Overall very positive. It has provided visibility to what is going on within our network.
        • One drawback is the time it takes to get up to speed with the application, but this is up to the user, and Splunk education is excellent.
        • In my field, IT Security, there are few other friends to have in your back pocket better than Splunk. They are just that good.
