I'd take an extra hop to utilize extrahops services

What do you like best about the product?
Due to every transaction happening and being able to be seen as wire data, analyzing this information can provide insight into every single event that happens on a network. You are able to see performance by tier and troubleshoot precisely by what the issue is. Wire data analytics allows a holistic view of every transaction that happens on a network and be able to see that information in a structured way.
What do you dislike about the product?
Although there is a slew of reputable and fantastic clients for extrahop, I myself think its running a bit expensive for over 7k for a 1 yr subscription.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We receive network traffic, and then performs real-time full-stream reassembly to extract application-level protocol metrics and other custom-specified information contained in the transaction payload. IT operations teams use this data to monitor the performance of the applications running on the network and detect anomalous behavior that could indicate a data breach, for example.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
This is not a bad route to go, so I'd consider using it on a trial basis like myself. I think with some time and effort into implementing it and taking it seriously you may have a winner here.
