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.

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.

Pandora FMS

  • All-in-one software
  • Flexible and easy configuration
  • Multi-platform
  • Design in PERL, CCS and HTML5

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.

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.

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

Pandora FMS

Before using Pandora FMS, tests were carried out with all these tools:
  • Nagios
  • Zabbix
  • System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
  • IBM Tivoli
  • PRTG
  • SolarWinds
Pandora FMS allows simple customization by making adjustments to text files, developing agent add-ons without the need to be a programmer, there is no scenario where we could not take data and save it in PandoraFMS, IoT, industrial products, and everything that any client needs to monitor.

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

Pandora FMS

  • It is a tool with an appropriate cost that allows to have results in a very limited time.
  • Having a health dashboard and alerts of important business in the company is an important differential with any other monitoring solution on the market.
  • Monitoring can be adjusted to the business, considering service SLAs and adjusting the platform according to the needs of each department of the company.
