"The most valuable feature is the multi-cloud integration, where there is support for both GCP and AWS."
"Provides visibility into the performance uptime."
"Google's technical support is very good."
"The features that I have found most valuable are its graphs - if I need any statistics, in Kubernetes or Kong level or VPN level, I can quickly get the reports."
"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done."
"End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good."
"The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."
"It does everything we wanted it to do."
"Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to receive in-depth information about applications. It can detect a lot of important information."
"The most valuable feature is application monitoring."
"Lacking sufficient operations documentation."
"If I want to track any round-trip or breakdowns of my response times, I'm not able to get it. My request goes through various levels of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and comes back to my client machine. Suppose that my request has taken 10 seconds overall, so if I want to break it down, to see where the delay is happening within my architecture, I am not able to find that out using Stackdriver."
"While we are satisfied with the overall performance, in certain cases we must add additional metrics and additional tools like Grafana and Dynatrace."
"It is difficult to estimate in advance how much something is going to cost."
"It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards."
"The deployment process could be improved."
"It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."
"The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be."
"How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited."
"The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop."
"The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure."
"They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive."
