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.Incentivized
Splunk RUM was really helpful in identifying brute force attacks as we used Splunk query language and were able to identify how many failed login attempts were made from which country and blacklisted those IP's. Since Splunk entirely depends on Splunk query language, if there are no logs or you delete the logs you can't perform analysis, as there is no stream of live data and also it depends on how frequently your data can be indexed.Incentivized

End-to-end visibility enables me to see each transaction from start to finish thereby making it easy to know where exactly an anomaly is coming from.They have a really kind and helpful customer support.Application monitoring.End user performance metrics.
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.
The setting baseline for AI-driven troubleshooting requires more documentation to implement.Room for integration with open sourced or inhouse monitoring tools.Required more flexibility on setting up mobile OS performance metrics.Incentivized

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
Splunk Real User Monitoring (RUM) has a much better artificial intelligence engine. It also has a much better and more intuitive user interface. Splunk RUM also allows end-to-end visibility into the front and the backend. Technical support and customer service are also much better than Goliath. Query performance is faster than Goliath.Incentivized
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?"Incentivized
Splunk is a single platform to perform all your analysis from front end to backend and all services.Splunk licensing is quite costly.Splunk is an excellent tool for data engineering and cyber security purpose.Incentivized
