Its very good and easy to do custom polling by importing MIB files where we had challenges to do out of box monitoring. Integration is easy.

From a packet tracing standpoint, it was easy to setup and analyze an issue we were having with eigrp errors between 2 data centers. Took a few minutes to stand up on both sides and compare the traffic to determine hellos weren't being sent. On the other spectrum, had it had the analytics of such products as Extrahop, it could have recognized and alerted us of an internal DNS attack we had.

LiveAction
  • I use it primarily as a monitoring tool from a security standpoint, so one complaint is that the filter creation process takes a little time to learn.
  • In the digital days of printing less, I do still need to print network diagrams for compliance documentation and some of the larger network diagrams documents do not print easily.
  • I wish the network connection lines were easier to see. They are typically very light and you have to drill down to see them more clearly.

They are fast responding when you create a support case. But they also have a forum (community) where you can find knowledge-base information that is very useful.

Can't really rate this, we never had to call support. The product wasn't complicated to setup and learn. We have a high level of network knowledge so the product was self-explanatory.

Cause of the great gui and easy management can be customized to your liking. The awesome topology maps you can make easy to change make it your own design. Great support. Don't need a large database to run. Can handle multiple users at once with ease. Overall a great product recommend to anyone

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.
