We use Visual TruView to monitor the applications, VoIP, and general performance of our network. It provides the needed visibility to address any possible problem before it spreads into other services and or locations across our complex corporate network. Since we started using TruView, the identification and solution of networking problems decreased by 70%. Being able to visualize the traffic and or availability of our physical and virtual resources made our job more effective than ever.
  • Ample visualization of the corporate network performance, making the identification and resolution of net problems easier
  • Works flawlessly with our virtual and cloud-based services, showing us who is consuming more resources.
  • Helps to identify threatening traffic patterns faster than our previous solution.
  • 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.
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.

TruView is one of my main IT N-Tier apps that allows me to report network behavior, server stats and issues and also dig into the apps that are installed within those servers. One of the important thing is that TruView is giving me the governance to isolate issues whether the problem is application, server, client, or network related. Also, it gives me the advantage to monitor VoiP solutions in my hybrid environment and the chance to monitor the apps performance to detect issues without impacting the core production.
  • 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.
  • As a management tool to App and Net performance monitoring the lack of knowledge from IT Admins or Net Admins can be overwhelming. Since to set all the features and customize the reports and get the most of the product the final administrator needs to fill out a decent Networking requirements.
  • TruView adapts well to large companies, but it can be a tough challenge for IT departments since it requires a lot of teamwork to achieve the potential the program has.
  • Helps out to identify issues within the LAN and WLAN design of companies but it doesn't solve the problem by it's own, it gives you the root cause of configuration and design issues.
As a application it stands for what it offers. One single box, one single price, and the rest is part of the experience of the IT Teams to get the most from a quite complete solution. Visual TruView has an amazing dashboard that can be customized to meet the needs of the business, and can get involved in the ITSM development insights to leverage SLA monitoring. It has a well sustainable discovery engine to get the specs of applications, servers and sites. If you're looking for a solution that can give you reporting advantages this is it, but you need to get yourself into this solution from day one to design a proper strategy for its deployment.

For less complex companies I strongly recommend to find a solution that can take you to parallel result with less investment.
