Application performance monitoring and troubleshooting solution

  • April 17, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is designed for cloud-native enterprise. It enhances performance by viewing everything in the application and act on artificial intelligence-driven analytics. It collects traces and monitors apps. It gathers and analyses spans and provides fidelity. It allows you to analyze app performance along every dimension. It assists you to solve modern problems as it determines an issue before it transforms into a consumer problem. It minimizes MTTR with artificial intelligence-driven directed troubleshooting to speedily understand the root-cause error mapping and service dependencies.
What do you dislike?
It can be complex when it is integrated with other tools. So, it is not best suited for large systems. It takes too much time to show the homepage and load significant features. I think there are some bugs that slow down the loading of features. Also, it is pretty expensive. The time and date editing range are somehow troublesome. The user interface is not much customizable as it is very tough to customize the design component.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
One major benefit is that it quickly understands how the app behaves for various versions, users, hosts, and regions. It can ingest and store low latency data on a large scale. It gathers data from a broad range of cloud integrations and client libraries by utilizing open source-based manual or auto instrumentation. It allows you to get answers without managing infrastructure. The report and alert functionality are great. It offers several good features such as easy dashboard creation and log filtering.

Enterprise-level SIEM and logging visualization tool. Worth it.

  • December 24, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
We use this across our different departments for security, host monitoring, data intelligence, vulnerability and threat actor collections, correlation, alerting and much more.
What do you dislike?
The biggest complaint I hear is 2-fold: It's expensive and it's hard to learn. Both of these are true, but opposed to some competitors, this is just more baked and better. The cost can be justified and it's a leader in various vendor rubrics.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Our big thing is pulling in multiple data from various cloud and in-house data sources. Once you have the mapping correctly (CIM in Splunk speak) this is really great for correlating information and such.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Do a full POC before you buy. Make sure you test out custom log sources from in-house, not just COTS apps. It helps a lot with evaluating the product. Also, get a good estimate for data retention and necessary storage space you'll need for the archived data. Way easier to figure that out first, than trying to add on more later. Also, take the training. That helps as well.

One of the Finest tool to monitor the log and generate alerts.

The best part of this tool is this supports the log monitoring on the multiple OS platform and provides the alerting on the basis of the log information which helps organization to check multiple anomalies happen in the systems.
Also this tool is greatly support the next generation tool and cloud concept its really impressive to continue monitoring on the authentication and many more aspects.
What do you dislike?
As this tool is work on the log file and use it for automation and alerting the storage of this log files make more burden on the organization costing and maintaining also makes difficult.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
For our organization this tool work as a great monitoring platform to maintain and keep eye on the unauthorize activities. This too helps us in regards with major outcome and define the sustainable rules for the accessing and granting permission point of view.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
To monitor the and manage the all anomalies activity on the any platform of system this tool works perfect and gives the clear picture on the unauthorize tasks .

Splunk is great for viewing network traffic logs

  • December 02, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Splunk is very robust with being able to search network traffic, create dashboards and automate reports and alerts. It allows users and admins to solve many problems. Our company has created several alerts for when people on the network download any files that look like they could be a virus, or if they are using illegal software, or trying to login with wrong passwords constantly.
What do you dislike?
There is a large learning curve to being able to use Splunk and be able to understand what the data you're looking at filter through it all to find what you need. It's very good if you know what you're doing, which there is documentation for, but if you don't have lots of networking experience and knowledge it's easy to be lost and overwhelmed.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We monitor all of our network's traffic with Splunk. It gives us metrics on what our University's population is using the network for and helps alert us if there are issues. It's a useful tool when troubleshooting login and connection issues. It also helps with identifying security issues. These security problems are able to be visualized as a report or dashboard for managers, even non-technical ones, to quickly get understandable information from.

Splunk makes it easier to search through various data including logs. I was used to fetch the details through logs in order to find the one lines among the 100 of thousands of lines. Now it become as easy as ABC also the infrastructure monitoring is cool. We have integrated this with Slack to get the alerts real-time.
What do you dislike?
It has its own SPL, if they enable SQL too so that it will be heaven for the tech guys.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Timely alerts and quick log search
Recommendations to others considering the product:
A good tool which will make your life easier
