Product Details

What is ScienceLogic SL1?

The ScienceLogic SL1 platform aims to enable companies to digitally transform themselves by removing the difficulty of managing complex, distributed IT services. SL1 uses patented discovery techniques to find everything in a network, so users get visibility across all technologies and vendors running anywhere in data centers or clouds. The vendor states the advantage of SL1 is that it collects and analyzes millions of data points across an IT universe (made up of infrastructure, network, applications, and business services), to help users make sense of it all, share data, and automate IT processes.


With SL1, the user can:

  • See everything across cloud and distributed architectures. Discover all IT components—–across physical, virtual, and cloud. Collect, merge, and store a variety of data in a clean, normalized data lake.
  • Contextualize data through relationship mapping and machine learning (ML) for actionable insights. Use this context to understand the impact of infrastructure and applications on business service health and risk, accelerate root cause analysis, and execute recommended actions.
  • Act on data that is shared across technologies and IT ecosystem in real time. Apply multi-directional integrations to automate workflows at cloud scale.

ScienceLogic SL1 detects the flaws in the network and gives the exact node point on which issue is persisting. It helps to provide complex monitoring in very simple ways. Its user interface is very much flexible but missing some features. For us, it manages all the IT assets very well.

I would recommend ScienceLogic SL1 in environments where there is a mix of technologies. For us, that means VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix, IBM Mainframe, and all hardware relating to that (i.e. Servers, SANs, Switching Fabric, Network, etc.). Specifically, where you wish to monitor/build up a service-designed view, it is an excellent tool.

I have been working with monitoring solutions for 20 years and ScienceLogic is, in my opinion, the best tool. It covers all the functionality you would expect in a monitoring and performance managing tool and does it as well as any other tool and in many cases better than competitive products. On top of that functionality, SL offers a highly configurable automation platform whereby events trigger code snippets to do specified actions.
When applied with the 'correct philosophy' it can deliver a great reduction in effort and efficiency in supporting an IT environment. The SL marketing material makes some bold claims about the efficiency and reduction in MTTR that can be achieved. I agree that these efficiencies can be achieved in the real world when applied looking at the whole IT Support processes.

We have a great relationship with ScienceLogic and always find them very helpful and engaging if we are faced with an issue or require assistance with a problem.

We have recently started testing ScienceLogic’s automated restart features which so far have proved [to be] a great feature and fits in with our automation vision.

Monitoring for any vendor I can think of is easy to build along with support for various customers. The multi-tenancy can be used in an enterprise capacity as well as MSPs. Monitoring/alerting and performance metrics are easily gathered and maintained to guide improvements in any ecosystem. The flexibility of snippets being written in python can solve unique use case scenarios for customers, such as gathering and alerting on extremely specific aspects of a system.

Great for enterprise deployments where there is a single standard of devices and monitoring practices in place. Managed Service Providers have a harder time deploying the solution across multiple customers due to constantly changing customer requirements, device types and monitoring and security requirements and scenarios.

When it comes to device monitoring, SciLo is doing a great job. You can monitor the device 24/7, and you can also monitor expired certificates, up down of the device. You can schedule maintenance window to override alerts that can alarm your customer or Network Operations Center personnel. You may call it advance NMS.

ScienceLogic SL1 is really good as you can focus on your BAU, [and] once a change ticket is raised you can simply start your activity from snow, and it will automatically set a maintenance schedule to the device.

Good UI interface. You can build custom applications to provide a new monitoring feature without relying on the vendor. With regards to functionality, ScienceLogic would be a great fit for any sized organization. Billing would possibly be the only barrier for smaller organizations.

Regardless of the product or solution, all monitoring systems encourage coding. ScienceLogic enables those coding skills to be leveraged across an ever growing list of technologies if one codes inside the Science Logic platform. Coding monitoring solutions outside of the ScienceLogic platform will tend to collect more technical debt and decay faster than it otherwise would if the code is embedded inside the ScienceLogic platform. For large, enterprise use cases, ScienceLogic (alone) is not as appropriate (6-digit volumes). Here, their integration with ServiceNow turns that gap into a benefit.

ScienceLogic is highly recommended if someone wants to monitor the device availability and its performance. Device CPU and packet drops are something which impacts the network a lot, ScienceLogic can handle it very well giving us an understanding that at what time a certain thing happens and up to what extent. It can be also used to intelligently log the case for the appropriate team to look into the issue in case the threshold increases.

ScienceLogic is very well suitable for overall capacity monitoring, for the operational system, application or cloud and is very nice if quick information intervals are required for analysis (the tool is not a data warehouse). The dashboards and reports are very nice as well, since out of the box, you can have enough views required for a first analysis. The less appropriate scenario is the usage of ScienceLogic as an APM substitute and deep down dashboard/report tool.

ScienceLogic does not have a direct product with NetFlow. It requires a lot of development to meet various use cases that are part of the ServiceNow. In addition to that, SL1 does not support the Dynamic APPS that they have created on the GOLD level package which requires lots of attention from the customer to modify and maintain. Flexibility comes with the cost of complexity.

ScienceLogic is well suited for doing SNMP monitoring for most device classes. Service monitoring via the SNMP protocol works well and is very intuitive. There are cases where some Windows devices are requested to be monitored via WMI and it is possible but just not very nice to do. The very best part about ScienceLogic is its ability to do so much if you are willing to put the work in. It excels as a platform and can be modeled to help achieve goals.

ScienceLogic is well suited for standard monitoring of devices. The "Discovering" mode is great when we onboard new devices, physical or virtual devices, and capture the device name, type, and IPs from the getgo. We find that ScienceLogic is not as versatile when it comes to incorporating it with our different ticketing systems. We, unfortunately, have several ticketing systems still in production and used by different teams. We are trying to move it toward ServiceNow.

Personally, I believe ScienceLogic requires more management than the usual monitoring tools. Due to that, the management required on huge environments may be a problem. However, it would fit well with small and medium companies and it would be viewed as a strong ally to IT departments.

ScienceLogic SL1 is well suited where customers are ready to go with out-of-the-box features and for a customer looking for lots of customizations and with highly complex environment, it can be more challenging for ScienceLogic SL1 to meet the customer's expectations and their requirements. However, ScienceLogic SL1 can be used with a bit of automation effort.
