    Well Suited: - Multiple units (you may split Nimsoft per Groups, companies, etc.) - When your Business Teams NEED Dashboards (they'll love it after they learn how to use, for example, if they discover that the may even run SQL queries together with monitor the webpage of the application, and display business data) Less appropriate: - If you are beginning to monitor your environment (because you need to know your environment at least a little bit to check if the entire set of monitoring Nimsoft plugins will really help you or you will only use it to ping your application) - If you don't have at least one (i do recommend 2 or 3 after some short time) people dedicated to deploy and fine-tune the monitoring. The tool is really good, but if you don't have anyone working on it, you will notice that you're spending money in an elephant to kill an ant or worst, that you passed the entire year, and still have the same problems of the last year, cause no one put the hands enough time in the tool. I saw this happening during the first year when I was the only one working with the tool and still supporting the entire team.

    Neustar Security Services

    If you need to gauge whether your site is up or down, then Neustar will give you exactly what you are looking for. However, if you need more granularity for specific application or sub-systems and their functionality, this product will need to be subsidized with other applications that provide more data or information on how individual components or systems are working.

    Neustar Security Services

    • It allows access to a history of checks, how much time they took, and if any errors were detected.
    • It can alert several people, or many in a group, for information related to the application availability.
    • When drilling down into the check, the logs can pinpoint the exact time and code events and how long each step took to respond.

    Cons

    Broadcom

    • I'd like to see improvements in inventory management. Currently node management isn't as efficient as I'd like.
    • I also see a big opportunity to offer greater customization in the Detail Tab. I'd like the ability to pick and chose which metrics are displayed by default in the Detail Tab snapshot.

    Neustar Security Services

    • The interface can be buggy.
    • We have experienced false positives of a system outage that was not accurate.
    • It's not a true measure of system performance or uptime, but simply judges up or down from a holistic view.

        Alternatives Considered

        Broadcom

        All tools have their own gaps , some seem to do more than others, some just work better. With UIM we have found a sweet spot with features, price point, pros, cons, etc

        Neustar Security Services

        To be honest, I am not certain why this product was initially chosen over other products. It was being used when I started working at a new job. I was trained on its use and focused on tracking issues when an alert was given. There are many products that can be used for monitoring site uptime. Neustar definitely has its uses for monitoring if a site is up or down, but its lack of granularity can turn some away.

        Return on Investment

        Broadcom

        • Business Units love It - Good for them, but worse for the IT Team until we share the responsibility of the dashboards.
        • If no one put their hands on it, it will take some time to give results. I'm talking about environments with 400 devices, for example, in something about 6 months to one year, if no one is dedicated, and depending on the consulting company. Some, even certified by CA, was not good. If possible, try to use CA services directly.
        • IT Teams, after they start to notice that the tool really work, will want to monitor everything. Depending on the company, this will be more or less easy to measure, as ROI. And I'm telling this because usually IT teams don't know how to sell them to C-Levels, and the tool, because of the price, is always a motivation to questions like: "What is this tool? Do you really need it? Is there another way to monitor this?"

        Neustar Security Services

        • Our company at one time gauged overall system uptime using Neustar WebMetrics to provide this data
        • Due to the limitations with the applications ability to show system functionality and uptime we have begun using other methods for determining system uptime for our customers.
        • The interface can be a bit tricky to understand during first use. There is somewhat of a learning curve.
