Crittercism is best as a bread crumb trail, stack track logging service to debug applications when you have an issue detecting a problem in your application. Its strength is not as a real-time logging platform to allow you to view production logs in real-time. However, it would be an extremely beneficial feature for Crittercism to add.
Read full review Pros 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.

Read full review Cons 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.

Visual TruView is a solid competitor with solutions such as
, 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.

A similar product we use is Conviva. I personally prefer Crittercism as Conviva seems to miss things fairly often. Critter tends to catch most issues as long as development has set the app up for it. I've had to reproduce issues several times before Conviva catches it whereas Crittercism will catch it on the first try
Read full review Return on Investment 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.
