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.

Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI)

Some teams get excited when looking at ITSI service models and envision modeling the entire infrastructure. What gets lost in translation is breaking it down to services, and also ITSI is not a replacement for an APM solution. So using a proper APM solution to drive quick insights into specific transactions, then feeding that data to Splunk/ITSI is a better bet.

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.

  • Detecting abnormal behavior

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.

Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI)

  • Multiple ways to ingest the same data can be confusing (events vs. metrics).
  • Glass tables can be a conflicting priority against normal Splunk dashboards.
  • Proper setup for alerting requires content packs that could be included with the product directly.
  • A separate license for ITSI on top of Splunk may make purchasing decisions difficult to justify.

We have replaced our monitoring platform with Splunk & ITSI, and with the success, it's seen at our organization thus far we would be hard-pressed to pivot to another tool. Frankly, our business partners and application teams love Splunk & ITSI.

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.

I like Splunk IT Service Intelligence in general. However, the Splunk IT Service Intelligence license is a bit complicated and not very straight forward.

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.

Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI)

I have not used any other product like Splunk IT Service Intelligence. The Splunk IT Service Intelligence can be applied across all the information you have in your Splunk environment. You can correlate the events with Splunk IT Service Intelligence and use it as an APM tool or business service analysis or fraud investigation.

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

Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI)

  • Eliminated >$500,000 in other software licensing.
  • Expected to be able to sunset additional point solution tools in favor of using ITSI.
  • Outage triage time is already being reduced, even while still instrumenting the product.
