"The most valuable feature is the ability to put health checks in place not only for the infrastructure but for some of the services that are on top of the infrastructure."
"The most valuable features have been the interface and the ability to do equipment management."
"The granular access control that it provided so that you could only see devices that were related to what you were working on was great. I couldn't see the entire inventory of devices. I could only see the ones that were related to my work. It has got a very granular access control component."
"Spectrum is great for root cause analysis. It has excellent correlation event management. Spectrum's stability and scalability are also amazing."
"The fault management is perfect."
"Scalability is a highly rated feature of this solution. It is better than some of the other tools that I've used in terms of scalability. We scaled it to tens of thousands of devices."
"The most valuable feature is the event correlation mechanism."
"The presentation layer is pretty simple and straightforward."
"Enables maps to be drawn out."
"Event correlation only works on one server, rather than on all of the servers in the same cluster environment."
"DX Spectrum could be improved by them getting rid of the Java console. It would also be better with Turkish language support."
"Its visualization can be improved. It doesn't have a very advanced GUI. It is very basic and simple, but it does work."
"The visual is a little archaic."
"I think the management or configuration of devices needs some improvement."
"Huawei devices are not properly supported, and there are incompatibility issues related to certain protocols."
"Integration with some other tools, and integration with some Network Packet Broker, need some improvement."
"For my use case, incident coordination was an area of improvement. The internal software engine for coordinating outages could use improvement because sometimes, we used to get false alerts for unrelated devices. They did a really good job of trying to make sure that you got one major alert and any of the subsequent devices downstream were just additions to that, but occasionally, the engine wouldn't properly catch the right things, and we used to get a flood of alerts."
"The IP interface brief isn't consistent."
