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.

Statseeker

Statseeker is an excellent choice to monitor a small, medium or large network. It uses SNMP to monitor switches, routers, appliances and really anything that has SNMP. The reports and output you can get from the system are invaluable. The speed of the system compared to other monitoing systems is great. Overall an excellent system.

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.

  • It can poll huge amounts of data quickly.
  • Excellent reporting features.

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.

Statseeker

  • The user interface could be improved.
  • Support can take some time to respond as they are based in Australia. However, they may be moving to the US.
  • More dashboard customization.

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.

Support is very good, however, they have been based out of Australia so you have to deal with the time difference. Once you get them they are excellent. I have heard they are shifting some of the company to the US so that should help with support.

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.

Statseeker

Both are similar, but I feel Statseeker is more feature-rich and the user interfaces much much faster than NPM. The UI is not quite as good as NPM, but I believe the slimmed-down UI is what allows for such fast query speeds.

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.

Statseeker

  • Great visualization of problem areas.
  • It helps speed up problem resolution.
  • Great capacity planning.
