As I said before, not only for Spectrum, but for any monitoring tool, you need to know what is critical in your environment and think about how exactly you should monitor and treat it. If you have done that, everything will work just fine.
  • Well Suited - Networking Monitoring
  • Less Appropriate - When you need to customize some monitoring and to update the version

Site24x7 All-in-One Monitoring is well-suited for organizations with diverse IT infrastructures, including networks, servers, applications, and cloud services. For very small-scale environments with minimal IT infrastructure, a comprehensive all-in-one monitoring solution like Site24x7 might be more than what is necessary

  • Ability to edit an existing maintenance schedule, vs creating a new one each time
  • Grouping of emails to SMS and non SMS alerts to save on false alerts

I have only had to use support once, so I can't go into much detail about their support team. The one time I did use it the response was fast but the resolution took some time.

Other tools I have used are more server/application-centric. CA Spectrum seems to work effectively and efficiently for network devices. Notification delays can be set to grant grace periods in case of network blips or false positives, which occur ALL the time. Other monitoring tools send event notifications immediately and would clear instantly, which while on-call can wake a technician for no reason.

Site24x7 [All-in-One Monitoring] has some similarities to ThousandEyes. Especially in the troubleshooting aspect where both offer Web performance waterfall charts to analyze the issue better. Both have cloud-based servers globally that allow to determine performance on the Internet. Site24x7 has more features available so we selected it instead.

  • Proactive monitoring for networking
  • To many times to plan an update

  • Reduced downtime: We've reduced downtime because the alerts from Site24x7 get us working on a problem immediately.
  • Less required manpower: We do not need additional staff overnight or an outside contractor to monitor the network since we get alerts ourselves.
  • False alerts: We do occasionally get false alerts, which causes time spent after hours tracing a problem that does not exist.
