It discovers the components automatically, which is a fantastic thing. The discovery works in an automatic way, and it has a dynamic way of discovering the components, assets, and applications. It doesn't require any manual intervention.
The most valuable features are the rich reports, high performance, and the look and feel of the WebEx webpage are very good.
I like the deep-dive detail and end-user metrics data. The synthetic monitor is the best one. The best point of the new one is that there's no need for configuration. You can inject the Java script and start to change major developments in the application. This is a good approach, and we received all the data using this.
It is very easy to configure because we are using an agent-less version. You can very quickly implement a collector for monitoring device servers.
Its ITSM and EMS combination is really amazing. There is no need to purchase two products, one for ITSM and a second for EMS/NMS.
The product offers good documentation that helps with initial training.
They have also accommodated many state-of-the-art technologies like Docker and ZooKeeper.
Similar to Micro Focus Network Node Manager, the most valuable features of this solution are its modern look and usability.
The correlation feature is the most used feature. It allows you to correlate events from different sources and have more meaningful events.
It is customer-centric. Customers can access the event list from their location or desktop and view the event. There is no need to go and connect to any other server and run events to have a view of all the events happening in the environment. We get a good response from customers about this feature and the main architecture of NetCool. Its processing is very good. Deduplication and correlation functionalities are good in this solution as compared to other solutions. A big advantage of NetCool is that it also supports multi-layered protocols. We can receive multiple events from different protocols like UDP, HTTP, and those events can be captured in NetCool.
It's a very good product overall.
You can create an application topology that shows relationships between different components.
Memory and CPU utilization features are good.
We're able to diagnose issues prior to their actually becoming issues. Without the alerting, we wouldn't have a clue as to what was going to happen. With the alerting, it gives us a heads-up that a specific threshold has been met, and we need to take specific action.
