    TruView

    Netscout’s TruView monitoring system gives your IT department the perfect view of your network landscape. With the pulse hardware app, you can perform VoIP or HTTP network monitoring tests from specific remote locations and it will populate the analysis results into your console. This will give you perspective on how your sites are performing and detect any out of Service Level Agreement (SLA) performance even before users report it.

    CoScale (discontinued)

    CoScale is designed specifically to monitor container and microservices environments managed by Kubernetes ecosystem.

    Pros

    TruView

    • The app monitoring gives you the details to set different filters and do a quick identification of the root cause of the problem.
    • Remarkable ability to store details of performance to analyze baselining, run advance troubleshooting, error detection and catalog by trends.
    • The ability to sync with a device/interface whether is physical or virtual gives me the standpoint to set analysis upon network traffic across LAN or WAN and also get the insight of Cloud segments, setting the triggers to find out where the behavior changes to non-production traffic.
    Victor Arana | TrustRadius Reviewer

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
    • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.

    Cons

    TruView

    • Product features are sometimes overwhelming if the IT team is not used to this technology. For a small and mid-size company, the number of settings and work that is needed to implement the solution could be a long and exhausting process.
    • A "lite" version of Visual TruView could help a lot to small sized environments looking to develop the solution.
    • I would like to add some mitigation tools for simple/common problems that could be easily managed by a monitoring tool like Netscout TruView.
    Claudio Hoffer | TrustRadius Reviewer

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
    • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.

    As mentioned before, our deployment success depended on their expertise. Recommendations and overall response from their support engineers was out of this world. We, as supporters ourselves, are very critical in regards to the response times and knowledge of support services representatives. Often they just want to resolve your ticket not caring about the result, or focus only on the performance review we could give them. That's a standard behavior in most overseas support centers. The TruView engineers and management cared about us, our needs, and how they delivered the help we needed.

    We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

    Alternatives Considered

    TruView

    Visual TruView is a solid competitor with solutions such as SolarWinds NPM, Nagios, PRTG, or SolarWinds NTA. Why we chose TruView was because it goes straight to what we were looking for, no hidden modules or subscriptions to secondaries licensing terms, to get the results that we were expecting. TruView takes it to another level.
    Victor Arana | TrustRadius Reviewer

    CoScale (discontinued)

    CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

    Return on Investment

    TruView

    • Tool consolidation, an amazing GUI that shows the most from the very beginning helping the IT Teams to set their own dashboards according to their needs.
    • When they meant one price tag, that's it! You won't get a headache after the purchase process is done.
    • Better be ready to set the scales your organization requires because if you miss something in the design you could get an application size that overrides your initial budget.
    Victor Arana | TrustRadius Reviewer

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
    • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.
